Yes, most people won't have problems if they have to use either an open network, or a network where you have to sign in on a webpage. Just when there's WPA, I believe.

Finally gave away the Tab to my servant. 

Was my first ever Lenovo purchase , will also turn out to be last. 

Wasted money on this **bleep**.

Told plenty of friends / relatives to stay away from Lenovo which sucks

Ended out talking to Harvey Norman's Tech Support, and under their advice I reset the device to original factory setting without backing it up.

 

The downside was starting over from scratch, the upside was it fixed the issue and I will leave Kitkat alone until the wifi bug is sorted out.

I just went to Settings, Backup and reset, Factory data reset

 

Just be sure you don't back up your files 1st.... It should return it to the same state it was when you 1st unboxed it.

 

If it was working fine when you unboxed it should solve your problem. Worked for me, so I hope you have good luck too :)

 

I am not a techii

here's my numbers after reset

 

Model A3500-F

Android 4.4.2

Kernel 3.4.67

 

Don't know if its still kitkat or not but its working :)

Yeah, 4.4.2 is kitkat. Weird it's working for you now, I had no change after a factory reset.

Okay, it's back up to it's old tricks again, wifi is dropping out all over the place. It was great for the 1st 24 hours then the problem returned. This leads me to think its something in the app's updates clashing with Kitkat. I told the YouTube app to revert to factory settings and ignore updates and whadda ya know, its working properly again!!!

 

In Settings, open the Apps tab in the menu, and tell the offending app to revert to factory settings then ignore offers to update. Its not a great fix because updates are important but it works :)
