    The tablet worked perfectly till yesterday. Now I can not connect to wifi. It says "not in range". I tried forgetting the network, restarted the tablet, restarted the modem, tried putting the wifi network manually, but no success so far. It scans neighboring networks, but not mine. Grateful for a solution. Android 4.0.3

    No problem with my phone or other tablets and laptops.

    I had reset my modem to channel 13. I now understand that Asus TF101 does not work very well with high numbered channels. I put the channel back to 6 on the modem, and voila! The tablet works.

    the US are only allowed channels 1-11
    Japan 1-14
    rest of world i think is 1-13

    so that maybe the issue ,if the tablet is made for US market - or there maybe a setting to change the channels you can use to include 12-14

    Thanks for the information. I did not know that. The tablet was, indeed, bought in the US.
