Hi,

I did a reset of my touchpad and want to start new with factory default settings. No problems, WebOS-setup starts, I choose language and country and then...the touchpad needs a network, but doesn't find anything. There are many networks around, WEP/WAP/open, different WLAN-channels, but the pad finds no one.
I used the web doctor 3.0.0 and 3.0.5, nothing changed.

What could I do? The pad works, but I couldn't continue the setup, because it needs a network :-((

bye

Make sure the router you're using is close, and is on channel 2. See if that helps.

You could try bypassing activation for now, and coming back later to finish setup when you sort out your WiFi problem. There's a tutorial on getting the activation bypass tool to work in the resource list linked from my signature.

I had this issue too with the earlier versions of webOS. The workarounds that I found were to use different routers. If that's not available, you might want to see if you can tether your Touchpad to a phone. Hope this helps!

I don't think it's a wifi hardware problem, because I didn't changed anything about it. From one day to another, the pad doesn't find any network. That's why I did the reset and tried the web doctor and so on..
