Galaxy Tab 10.1 Update Has WiFi Glitch, Leaves Many Users Abstaining And Others Wishing They Had

Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 has released a 63.12MB update to users which brings the device to Android 3.2 and, oh yeah, it has a serious glitch which is causing all kinds of WiFi connection problems. Since the Android tablet is WiFi-only, users that have already completed their update are left with a relatively useless device.

Of the problems reported, users say their tablet would no longer connect to WiFi with DHCP dynamic IP and rather only through static IP. Also, it will no longer connect to Kies, displays “Firmware update failed” upon reboot and even ceases auto rotation. As for a solution to the glitch, hard resets have proven ineffective and Samsung has offered only the following statement to their customers:

“Samsung is aware of an issue that some Galaxy Tab 10.1 customers have experienced with today’s software update. We are working on a resolution and will provide more information shortly. In the interim we have chosen to discontinue availability of the update.”
