I just purchased a Prime 201 and it is driving me crazy already !
After getting home i switched it on and let it go through the standard setup routine. As part of this process it downloaded and installed a firmware update. After this had completed i attempted to start using it and instantly starting getting a weird problem.
The device picks up my wireless network without any problem but thats when the problems start. For whatever reason i can't browse to certain web sites or download anything from the play store. Below is a summary of what i have found so far.
1. Gmail works fine and i can send and receive email
2. I can connect to certain web sites like cnn.com, microsoft.com or cnet.com
3. I can connect to the play store but when i attempt to download anything it just seems to go forever and the download never starts
4. I cannot connect to google.com or a number of other web sites. It just times out
I have looked through a few forum posts and have seen reported issues with the play store but cannot for the life of me understand why i can't even get to google.com or other web sites !!
I've tried a series of cold resets, erasing the data & clearing the cache from the apps setting for play store but nothing seems to work. I also tried a cold reset and selecting the RCK option but then i just get the android robot error (red exclamation mark)
I have made no mods whatsoever and this is a straight out of the box configuration plus the automatic firmware update. In settings it reports the andriod version as being 4.1.1 and the build number as JR003C.WW_epad-10.4.2.18-20121122
Any ideas would be appreciated as this is driving me crazy
