My Samsung Galaxy tab 4 connects to WiFi at home but won't connect anywhere else that has free WiFi when I take it somewhere with me.
 
1. Try and restart the tablet. Sometimes it is that simple.

2. Update the firmware and any apps that need updating on the tablet.

3. If the problem persists, check your time and date on the tablet to make sure it is correct.

4. Should none of the former work...
a. Clear out the WiFi data on the tablet.
b. Reboot the modem/router.
c. Once the modem/router is fully 'up' again, reboot the tablet and re-input the WiFi data.

5. Check your internet connection. It may be what is going in and out rather than the tablet.

6. Make sure you have "Data" turned off on the device when using "WiFi" (that is if you have a plan with data through your tablet). If you don't make sure it is turned off, the device can keep trying to switch to "Data" when you try and use "WiFi".

Tried everything on that list, it says I'm connected but when I try and pull screen down to sign into WiFi it disappears, makes no sense that it connects at home but no place else keeps flashing something about the eye.
