Hello There, May be those free wifi spots are already full and cannot accommodate a new device. However, try this one

 1. When you cannot connect to free wifi even if you are very close to the transmitting spot, select the option to "Forget" the specific wifi network.

2. Don't rescan, rather manually add a new network, and give same name (case sensitive), password, security policy etc.

3. Now save and connect

This is a work around, this should be of your help

It uses micro-SIM card and has TFT capacitive touchscreen display with 16M colors at 1280 x 800 pixels screen resolution. It supports multi-touch featuring TouchWiz UX UI. It runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean powered by Intel Atom Z2560 chipset, 1.6 GHz Dual-Core processor, and PowerVR SGX544MP2 GPU. It supports microSD expandable up to 64 GB.

It runs on 1 GB RAM with internal storage available in 16 GB and 32 GB capacities. The primary camera supports 3.15 megapixels featuring geo-tagging. It supports 720p video recording. The secondary camera supports 1.3 megapixels.

It has 3.5-millimeter jack featuring Dolby Surround audio enhancement; Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n with dual-band, Wi-Fi Direct, and hotspot support; Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP support; GPS with A-GPS and GLONASS support; infrared; and MHL 1.2 microUSB 2.0 with USB Host support. It doesn’t have FM radio. It has built-in accelerometer and compass sensors. The pre-installed web browser supports HTML5. Java is not supported.

It runs on non-removable Li-Po 6800 mAh battery with talk time up to 9 hours via multimedia on 2G and 40 hours on 3G. It is available in garnet red, white, gold brown, and midnight black colors. If your tablet can connect properly to your home Wi-Fi but on public Wi-Fi networks, one reason for that is when the network is already full.

A Wi-Fi network is managed by a Wi-Fi router. Now, every Wi-Fi router has limitations on the number of devices it can support. For example: a Wi-Fi router that can support up to ten devices. When ten devices are already connected to the Wi-Fi router, the next Wi-Fi device that will connect will not be allowed to access.
