Does the tablet get far enough in the connection stage to show "Obtaining IP Address" at all? Or does it sit at Authenticating for a few seconds until that error appears?

Something to try, make sure you forget the network, and then re-add the network. Be sure to enter in your WPA2 key paying attention to the case. Capital letters do matter!
