    I have the internet cable connected but it still will not move past the "checking" stage.

    Hi jdiff , 

    Is the ActivTable that you have a Windows 7 table or Windows 8 table? And have you ever changed the password after you received the table?

    I am assuming it is Windows 7, but I don't know for sure. It won't update from the ActivTable setting so I don't know if it is connected. I think we set it up Windows with a password, but we have had a change of personnel. None of the known passwords work.

    Hi jdiff,

    Thanks for posting.

    It could possibly be a proxy on the network blocking this from being checked.
    If you connect an ethernet connection and try and search for updates, does this work?

    When I turn on the table it's asking to change the user password ...I do not know the old password as I received the table from another teacher and she doesn't remember it. How do I change the password if I don't know the old password?? Thanks

    Thanks everyone.  I figured out the password and was able to hardwire the internet for Windows updates.
