    Can't download apps from Android Market (keeps losing connection)

    Hi Guys,

    So I've been eyeing the TF since it came out, and was finally ready to buy so i did yesterday, and it pains me to say this i've had nothing but problems. Most have been solved with some apps and adjustments but one i cant find any answers to is the following.

    Every time i try to download an an app, it stays stuck on "waiting to install" or sometimes when i load up the market it tells me there's no connection even though there is and the wifi icon is in blue meaning its connected to google servers/srvices.

    I've found two workarounds but they both only work for one download meaning if i want to download an another app after the first one finishes or during the first one, i have to apply the workaround before the next app can install
    First is to do a hard reset and it either starts to download the app on its own or i have to go back to the market and try do download it.
    The second is to keep turning wifi on and off (or airplane mode on and off) until it again either starts on its own or i have to go back to the market.

    Its not my wifi network as i've tried on other networks and still have the same issue. At first i though it was cause i had specific DNS settings on my router, but when i took them off still did the same thing.
    Best i got was using wifes iphone as a hotspot. Let me go about 4 apps back to back, but then start acting up again
    I have no wifi policies to make wifi sleep or anything.

    i've been looking everywhere since yesterday for an answer.

    thanks in advance

    Same for me, I find market slow to open sometimes and again like you Apps stall on downloading. I find if I go back into market and start the app download again it finishes no problem.
    It doesn't always stall on the download just 1 in about 4.

    Hello Bobert and welcome to the Forum. The Market issue you describe is not exclusive to you or your TF. I have tried downloading Apps with multiple devices with the same result. We can only atribute this to a Market issue.
    The best advice I can give you is to use the back arrow and start the download over. Seems to work with 2 tries or so.

    I have much better luck accessing the market in a web browser set to desktop mode. Log in to your account, find the app and then select your device to install to. The download will (99%) of the time install the first time in my experience this method. I have about a 50% success rate using the market.
