Lenovo IdeaTab K3 Lynx: "Bluetooth could not turn on" and wifi does not "see" my router

2013-11-30, 22:48 PM

I bought this 1.8GHz tablet from Amazon, and I'm not sure if I got a deffective tablet or if I'm just getting what I'm paying for. I tried to find for possible solutions. I tried looking this up but nothing that I could apply to my case. 


Anyways when I go to the wireless menu, the bluetooth won't be able to turn it on. If I turn off the wifi it might or might not turn on back again. Even when it turns on it does not see my router, So I can't check for windows updates at this moment. Some days ago I had wifi but not bluetooth, I've made some windows updates to fix the bluetooth but I'm not sure if those updates in the first place are causing now the problems with the wifi. 


I have not attempted to do a factory reset because I have Bitedefender already installed in it (the antivirus has not giving me problems with wireless connections before) and having to re-install again is such a pain, so before I do that I want to see if there is something that I accidentally changed in the settings (because I've been playing with them to find a solution) or some other easy issue easy to fix.
