Why won't my tablet stay online?

I can get online for about 10 seconds then it goes offline. I've gone over this procedure at least 10 times with no change. I'm not a computer geek, I'm 71 and need HELP that I can understand. This was for my wife and I would like to get it up & running... PLEASE EMAIL me your answers.. Lawrence at ( lpho@att.net ) Thank You ! ( I don't know any other way to describe what is happening,,, It's a iRULU 10.1 Android 4.2 Tablet A20 1.5 GHz 8G 1G Dual Core and Cam with Keyboard Hot.. That's the way it's worded on EBAY... ) Thanks Again...

I do not know if the following settings are available in your tablet.

Go to Settings > Wireless & Networks > WiFi (ensure that it is on) and tap on it to enter. The available Wifi networks list should appear.

This is where I am not certain with your tablet. There should be a menu option available somewhere on the screen now, either an icon or pressing a soft button that brings up a WiFi options box. In there there should be an option for Advanced. Tap on it to enter the WiFi Advanced settings area.

There now should be a whole list of options to choose from. Scroll down and check whether WiFi- Optimization has been checked. If so tap on it to uncheck it.

Also uncheck the Scanning always available option (if there).

the page should look something like this

You may also wish to change the Keep WiFi always on during Sleep option to never to save the battery if you are not using WiFi. This setting just means that when you "wake up"your tablet the WiFi connection is available immediately and you do not have to wait for the connection to be re-established.

Thanks for the reply. That tablet does not have all that you said it might not have. We're going to go to the library where all the younger generation goes after school. If they can't get it up and running no one can.. Thanks Again !
