hpwebos tablet not working

Product Name: hpwebos

Hi, can anybody suggest what to do?

My brother gave me his old tablet and he eraced everything on it before he gave it to me. Now, I cannot sign to my wireless network to get it going. I know all the information is correct but the notebook simply says to go to the os website. When I get to the website, it says the server is not supported since 2015

This tablet is HPwebos. This product was apparently never sold on the market. PH developed them and then sold them off wholesale.

Hello, and Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

HP ended support as you already know.  The servers are gone.

 

You can try the suggestion offered in the sticky thread at the beginning of this section:

Re: hpwebos tablet not working

For the first time in a long time, I tried following those links in the thread about bypassing webOS servers.  It seems like the webOS Doctor files are not currently available anywhere.  I have a bunch of them, and I suspect you do too, but I don't rightly know who owns the rights to them and whether it would be legit to upload them somewhere for folks to access.
