A tablet should that utilizes standard wifi should hook right up to your service.  DHCP hands out the IP address, gateway, and DNS.

Variations in the Wifi might be that the tablet only support 802.1g, or if it's really old, 802.1b.  Or perhaps, it only supports WPA instead of WPA2?

The question here is the WIFI that you are using.  Do you have a SurfBeam 2 modem that is hooked to your own WiFi device?  Or do you have ViaStat's combined modem/wifi device?
