Is really the message being showed is: "Check the connection."? I did not encounter that error in FaceTime. Did you already make a video call to other devices? I think internet speed contributes to your problem. If not, consider restarting the device. The error you are encountering can be just a bug in iOS 7.

My daughter tells me my voice wavers when I FaceTime her.


There could be quite a few resons, so please check the following list. Not all of them might apply to your situation, but the all could cause sluggishness in your video conversation.

1. Make sure you are not obstructing the microphone with anything, including your hand. Usually the microphone is on the back side near the back side camera, and on the side near the volume buttons. You can check it's exact location by finding a tiny whole on the ipad body in these locations.

2. Check the wifi signal strength on the status bar. Having less than 3 bars means poor signal. That can really ruin call quality.

3. Try to make a voice only call on facetime. Video needs big data flow rates. If voice calling is good, but video call is bad, you or your talking partner may have a slugish internet connection.

4. If you are using mobile network for your internet/data connection it may become slugish from time to time. Mobile networks always prioritize phone calls over internet/data connection. So if lots of people are making phone calls on your area, yor data connection quality will drop, thus the facetime call using data connection will suffer the consequences by loosing quality.

5.Talking on facetime, or skype using video call is like streaming a video in realtime over internet, and it needs speedy and stable connection. If connection is bad, yor call may become sluggish.

6. Feedback prevention. Try to prevent the sound from your talking partner to get back to the microphone. Try wearing headphones.. Sometimes the sound is turned up so much that it gets back to the microphones, and in order to prevent causing a sound loop (the high piched sound you might heard eventually when people are using microphones on events) your ipad turns down your microphone for a short time trying to protect your ears :)

7. Try not to talk at the same time with your partner. When your partner is talking your microphone might be silenced. Because of what i described at point 6. Wait for your partners to finish their sentence and talk only after that.

How do i fix my ipad?keeps saying .. ipad not set up and that needs wifi but it still doesnt work,????


Connect to computer with iTunes on it and try a reset if that doesn't work do a restore...you will lose your data. If that doesn't work your iPad is probably suffering from an internal error and needs repair or replacement.

I have a Dragon Touch tablet. won't connect to wifi after WEP is entered and accepted/saved.


Are you still using WEP security? Most devices today no longer use WEP as it is inadequate for serious security. Most devices today are using WPA2 security. If you are no using the proper security you will get an authentication error even if the password is correct.

Wont connect to internet even though the wifi says it is connected


It could be because of the amount of devices that are connected to your wifi. Too many devices could put a lot of weight on your bandwith causing the wifi itsself to become slower. Disconnect any devices using wifi in your home that dont need to be on every day and try reseting your modem or router. You could also use a usb cord to get a more direct connection or you might have to upgrade to a faster wifi company. If the problem still continues take your device back and get it fixed, call the number in the troubleshooting guide, or visit the nextbook website and make sure you have your device registered.

Can not facetime


***Try this FIRST*** sometimes the icloud account may fail to connect to the Internet you can fix this by simply restarting your phone

a good way to check if you have facetime is to go to the settiings app and go to facetime panel there.
see if you are signed in and see how you can be reached (i have set up my mobile number and 2 mails where i can be reached by facetime)
in order for facetime to work the other person you are trying to contact must have facetime enabled (i.e. have iphone 4 or higher, have an icloud account ) a good way to test is to see if the person can be contacted through imessage
and make sure the person's phone number is listed as iphone in your contacts app
sometimes the iclod account may fail to connect to the Internet you can fix this by simply restart ing your phone

I use my mobile phone for wifi for my laptop which works well but my Audiosonic 10" T-22B tablet has trouble connecting to wifi even when the phone is sitting right next to my Audiosonic tablet the tablet...


If it is a cheap tablet, there are high chances that it might not even be able to connect to a wifi. Some cheaper laptops just don't bother putting in the Wi-Fi capability in them. Try to turn your Phone into a hot spot, and see if that helps find it. If not there is not much you can do regarding it.

Why won't my kurio 7" tablet connect to wifi


I had this problem with my son's Kurio over Christmas and found that connecting to wireless in Kurio mode was impossible. If you go to the parental mode and click the switch to Android button there are settings for the wifi in the Android platform settings. You can set up there and then go back to the Kurio safe mode for the children to use. Hope this helps...
