Fix Android Wi-Fi Problems & Connection Issues

WiFi AndroidSometimes you might creep in with some astonishing problems on your Android mobile phone and one of them is not able to connect your phone over Wi-Fi. The problem maybe not in your phone but can other issues which you aren’t aware of. It noted that 90 % such problems occur due to router configuration problem. And here is our basic guide on how would you resolve those issue by yourself.

We would be going with the basic steps to ensure that the problem is fixed by you manually. Follow the steps below –

  1. Switch your mobile handset and reinsert battery and try again.
  2. If that doesn’t work and if you are using security on Wi-Fi router then remove it. Check back again.
  3. Some of the devices don’t supports router which is supported by other devices. So in that case you need to go to router configuration in PC and check each setting which your mobile needs.

If the problem is still not solved then follow these –

  1. Use Fix My Wi-Fi – Using this paid Android App you can resolve some of the known Wi-Fi issues. The problem can be in failing to reconnect or return to access point, Wi-Fi dropping when idle(Optional Wi-Fi lock), device not attempting to connect. This app comes free with certain HTC mobile phones. Its available at Price of $3 or Rs 145. You can get this app for download at Marketplace.
  2. If the paid app doesn’t work then it might be driver failure. For Samsung Galaxy series mobile phones open your keypad and type *#*#526#*#*, wait for some time until you see ‘process was successful’ on the screen. You can repeat this whenever you see this problem.

    I have the Nexus S and I used to have connectivity issues too. It worked for like an hour like a charm and all of sudden, although connected to the home wi-fi I couldnt access the internet.

    The problem seems to be the proper security protocol. The Nexus and some other cell phones (even non-android) dont seem to work properly using WPA or WPA2 for some enigmatic reason. So I changed the security protocol to WEP in my router. It works like a charm ever since.

  • Lee

    I think the problem is not with your phones but with the router setting. Try lower to B/G instead of N. I’ve an old Desire and a new Nexus, both have no issues at my work place but have difficulties to access the Internet though connected until I change to B/G.

    I had problem with my Galaxy S2 w-fi. When I start the wi-fi it doesn’t connect and turn-off wi-fi or in most cases the wi-fi not turn-off.
    Today I read your comment and apply the sequence *#*#526#*#* and the problem was fixed, the wi-fi backs work again.

    I solved the problem with the wlan error on Samsung Ace S5830 and a Samsung mini S5570 using the thread below and comment by b1gg:
    http://androidforums.com/samsung-galaxy-mini-s5570/409463-samsung-galaxy-mini-wifi-issue.html
    Basically root your 2.3.* phone with update.zip, reboot and then past in the file wpa_supplicant (over exsting file) in system/bin, reboot again and it should work. Sometimes the codes 562 or 232339 are needed.

  • Andi Jay

    Hi I have got a Samsung galaxy ace – and whenever I try to access wifi it say’s it connecting authenticating and then disabled this keeps happening in a loop – I have tried

    open your keypad and type *#*#526#*#*, wait for some time until you see ‘process was successful’ on the screen. You can repeat this whenever you see this problem – This says it has worked but still no joy connecting wifi

    “forget this network” (your preferred network or home network in my case). Shut off the phone and remove the battery for at least thirty seconds. Press the power button, with the battery still out, to help discharge the circuitry. Put the battery pack back in and then reconnect to your network as a new client. It appears the problem is from a corrupt IP/DNS configuration that must be rewritten.

    I have restored to factory settings

    This weekend I upgraded to Android 4.0.3 and I had to plug in a new router, funny enough on the same day. Since then my phone has been having difficulty accessing wi-fi. It just doesn’t DO anything, at all. It doesn’t load it doesn’t care. The wifi shows my router, I have entered the new password, but it just doesn’t connect. Yesterday I got it to work by turning off my router first, but if I leave my house and for whatever reason turn off my wi-fi and switch to 3G on my phone before I come back home: can’t connect AGAIN. I really don’t know if this is because of my Android update or because of my router… Help?

  • srini

    Finally it is a easy quick fix. Just downgrade your wifi router everything will work fine. Just change the security of wifi router from wpa2 to wep and downgrade wireless interface fro 802.4 /g/f/n to just /g/f that means 130 mpbs to 54 mbps. No wounder everything will just start work. The thing is not all android versions are coded for advanced wifi technologies.

    first day
    3. In internet app search is working i.e., if i search something then

    I have the same problem with my Samsung Galaxy Gio s5560 in Wi-Fi connection. My Android version is 2.2 froyo. Earlier, I could connect to Wi-Fi and it worked so well. I’ve not connected to Wi-Fi since yesterday. I’ve tried to press the code that I got from this website *#*#526#*#* and it said “Driver loading successful” but I can’t still connect to Wi-Fi.

  • Mikey P

    OK, EVERYONE…DON’T THROW YOUR PHONES OUT JUST BECAUSE YOU ARE HAVING A TOUGH TIME CONNECTING TO A NETWORK. IF YOUR NETWORK IS AT HOME, THEN YOU NEED TO UPDATE YOUR ROUTER’S FIRMWARE. FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU HAVE A LINKSYS ROUTER, YOU WILL NEED TO FIND OUT THE MAKE AND MODEL OF YOUR ROUTER, THEN GO TO THEIR WEBSITE, DOWNLOAD THE CORRECT FIRMWARE TO YOUR COMPUTER, THEN GO INTO YOUR ROUTER SETTINGS, CLICK ON UPDATE FIRMWARE, THEN CLICK ON THE NEWLY DOWNLOADED FILE…AND WALLA!!! PROBLEM WILL BE SOLVED. THAT’S HOW I FIXED IT FOR MY SONY ERICSSON XPERIA ON ANDROID GINGERBREAD. NOW IT WORKS!!! GIVE IT A TRY BEFORE YOU GIVE UP, LIKE I ALMOST DID…SORRY FOR ALL CAPS, TRYING TO MAKE A POINT. (MIKE)

    hey!..i am not able to connect to my home network on my samsung galaxy pro!..the wifi keeps showing..’obtaining ip address”..that is it..please help asap.

  • Loulou

    I finally seem to have fixed my problem by installing Wifi Analyzer to see what channels were strongest for my router (changed from 1 to 11), installed WiFi Buddy, and now it’s working, connection works even after the tab has gone into sleep mode and I wake it up. Going on 2 hours straight with no issues and am crossing my fingers! Thanks for the suggestions and I hope this helps someone else out there!

    hi my Samsung galaxy gio wi fi is not work and i try the numbers it still did not work.

  • http://staceymccool.tumblr.com stacey mccool

    thank you so much for this!

    i’ve been struggling with wireless connections for months and thought it was something i just had to deal with. none of my apps would connect over wi-fi and i was forced to swap between my home network to 4g to send or receive emails! your fix worked instantly (samsung infuse 4g on rogers). bookmarked.

    Phone: LG-P500 on Android 2.3.3 (Kernel 2.6.35.10-perf)
    Problem: it fails after authenticating with the router when “Obtaining IP address…” and then after 15 sec switches to “Remembered” before immediately switching to “Disabled”
    Router used to work with phone on 2.2.1 (although it would disconnect regularly and require me to turn wifi off then on again to re-establish wifi connection). Router works with PCs, iPod Touch, and iPad with no problem.

    Tried all the attempts mentioned above.

  • sidharth

    i am having galaxy ace white 2.3 gingerbread…….. everything works fine except for the wifi. if i am connected using a wifi, after using it for some time it will lose connection and then reconnects it again. it works again for some more time then loses connection and reconnects. is this a problem with the mobile?

    • Yogesh Patel

      Can you tell me the Android version that you have on your phone?

  • Lal

    I have also experienced wireless connection issue in my Samsung infuse 4g in that my phone is unable to connect to my wireless router which is perfectly fine for my laptop. While restarting the phone works, I found another work around that doesn’t require a restart – go to your wifi settings and press wps button connection. You will see something happening in the background. Press Cancel button and you’ll see your ssid listed under wi-fi networks (or you’re done with a previously saved connection). If doesn’t work retry.
    This works everytime with my phone which has android 2.2.1.
    Thanks!

    Hi
    I’m having the same problem with my wi-fi connection, it keeps reconnecting all the time, I’ve been trying all solutions posted in this article but it didn’t work.

    The ONLY SOLUTION that worked for me is to power off and power on my router, it always helps…

    It’s definitely the ANDROID fault, I’m just wondering when the f***ing google dev team will get rid of this problem!!!!

  • Ruchir

    I have a Samsung Galaxy SL I9003 with 2.3.6 DDKP3 firmware….my wi-fi gets disconnected frequently after getting connected….I have tried using*#*#526#*#* and the fix my wifi app and i have also cleared teh cache as suggested by you but unfortunately the problem still persists. Please suggest me a permanent solution. I am in deep trouble. Please reply and help.

      on which firmware you are on?

    • Stoxguy

      Me too dude, me too. I just got a Samsung Exhibit II 4G. I am a very techy dude. I set up my home wifi myself, after fighting with Cisco on the ‘net and the phone. It was a firmware update for the Linksys router. I’ve got my laptop on my system w/o any problems. I connected my desktop w/o any probs. Samsung phone- problem. I’ve received a letter from Comcast that my router needs to be updated to DOCSIS 3 for better speeds. I’ll see what a new router costs. I’m trying to pinpoint why my Samsung Exhibit authenticates, then drops my wifi connection in 3 seconds. It’s going to be something stupid and might take me a while to search for it. All that Android app-crap for wifi isn’t going to solve the problem, it’s in the router settings or the firmware on the phone needs an update. I don’t think Samsung will be too helpful on this matter.

    I purchased Galaxy Fit 2 days before. wifi is working fine at my home.

  • Paolo

    Hi, I’m experiencing a problem with my galaxy note. I noted that though the wifi is connected to my home router, the phone continuously attempts to connect each 2 or 3 seconds, finding other connections, then hiding them again, then scanning again, and finding other connections, etc. All the time it stays connected on my router, but it consumes A LOT of battery! I tried everything, I also tried an hard reset, but the problem remains. I have updated my phone to gingerbread.XXLA4, my kernel version is 2.6.35.7-N7000XXLA4-CL886827.
    Please help me! I will be eternally grateful.

    Hi Neal

    Recently my S2 wifi connection got problem, when i turn it on, it canot detect any wifi available in the surrounding, even at home my router is open free access all time, tested with my S1- no problem . I have google thru , found tons of problems with S2 wifi.. i don’t see any cure yet.

    do a full clear cache n wipe factory, the same happen, it just kept scanning non-stop, unable to stop although the wifi has been off, sometime the wifi icon would turn lighter green n the phone gets heated up badly.

    tried with other stock rom version , the same happen, tried with the key *#*#526#*#* – driver is fine,
    Could this be hardware issue with the wifi – if so any technical hardware so i can open up S2 n check ?
    my hands are getting itchy n can’t wait to operate S2 -overly frustrated.

    Please advice.. thank you

    Hi,

    I am also faced same problem before saw below url, now i able to connect wifi

  • Stitch

    OK, I have been using the phone for a couple of months now and things have settled down. It DOES seem to connect to MOST public WiFi hotspots OK. I think my bad luck was that the FIRST place I tried it (A place where I regularly go) won’t work and some soon after did not work as well – JUST MY BAD LUCK! I am prepared to accept that some WiFi access points (e.g. some public hotspots) just won’t play well with all devices and I think that is just a fact of WiFi life! I am now getting to like my Samsung Ace as an entry level introduction to Android type phone :-) Maybe other Android phones connect to more hotspots more reliably? It’s impossible to say without a head-to-head comparison imo…

    I have the same issue with my galaxy s2 (2.3.5) as above as someone stated : It starts trying to connect and then connect, disabled, obtaining IP address and going in circles like that.. Before upgrading from 2.3.3 to 2.3.5 also, i had the very same problem.

    But my brother is having the same handset – S2 (2.3.3) which connects without any issues.

    Anyone found the real cause of this problem ? ? ?

          wat issue you are facing?

  • Euds

    i have a samsung s2 with andriod 2.3.3 just a couple of weeks ago, i can browse, download from the market thru the wifi, but after a while i cant connect to any net site, even thought my wifi signal is excellent, i already test the above procedures, but still i cant connect, pls help.,,,,

    • Yogesh Patel

      Does your Wi-Fi signal from the router is able to connect with other devices than the one which you have ? Did you try that? If you are able to connect then there is problem with your S2 phone or you need to configure settings.

    Hey guys I got this solved. Check these steps

    Main problem is Mac authentication. You need to disable Mac authentication in your router & it will connect immediately.

    • Levi

      This would work in theory but what I did was add an exception using the mac address of what I wanted to connect to the network. Your mac is still enabled and you can connect. I can now use wi-fi whenever I want.

      oh that works for me :)

    I have Galaxy Ace & I am also facing same issue of frequent WiFi connect-disconnect. This seems to be some update they made automatically in the os as it was working till not & now it seems lots of people are facing this problem in last 15-20 days. I hopes they fix this soon.

  • Nuno

    I have on Galaxy Ace Mini for 1 month which has been working fine until one day and now i cannot access internet at all. It starts trying to connect and then connect, disabled, obtaining IP address and going in circles like that.. I already tried to dial *#*#526#*#*, it says, “Driver loading successful”. My android version is 2.2.1.

    Hello!

    I have just recently upgraded my phone via “3” in the UK from a Nokia E71 (Which I have had for three years) to a Samsung Galaxy Ace GTS-5830 (Had two weeks!). The Nokia E71 connects to WiFi public and private hotspots flawlessly, the Samsung Ace DOES NOT. Don’t get me wrong, the Samsung Ace connects to some hot spots fine HOWEVER for many public security protected hotspots it just will not connect at all, it gives the problem others have described here:

    * You see the SSID (Signal strength ‘strong’ or ‘fair’)
    * It tries to connect (I actually GOT a connection ONCE for about three seconds!)
    * It drops the connection – usually immediately
    * Most of the time it simply does not make a connection at all but simply ‘cycles’ between ‘scanning…’ and ‘Disconnected’……
    * The SSID then shows as ‘out of range’ which is a lie as my Nokia continues to work flawlessly with a STRONG signal recorded.

    Of course it is impossible to change any of the settings of the public WiFi hotspots (Wireless Access Points), I have a Nokia phone and a Acer laptop both connect to the hotspots flawlessly the Samsung Galaxy Ace will not connect….

    What would you suggest I do?

    Many thanks in advance for any assistance or pointers you can give me,

    Stitch!

    (I want to love Android but frankly my very initial experiences have NOT been impressive as this is a fundamental feature of a smart phone that should just work ‘out-of-the-box’. It currently reflects poorly on Samsung and the Galaxy, Ace, and Android Brands – Older products work much better)

    ps I cannot tell you how frustrating it is to go into a WiFi enabled cafe, sit down order a coffee and try out my new phone only to find it does not work (First time out!) whilst my old phone continues to work just fine!

  • Fernando novelo

    I have. The galaxy fit and have the same issue that I connect to my wifi network for a couple od minutes and then it disconnects and then I cannot con net again. I always have to power off my modem and then on again and and then it connects for a while and again it disconnects. I know it’s the wep settings but don’t know how to fix it. Please help

    • Yogesh Patel

      What is the firmware that you are on now? Is this problem happened before you upgraded the firmware?

  • Carlos

    Good Day all,

    I was ofered an galaxy gio, with the 2.2.1 version of android everything went well when i updated the official version of samsung 2.2.3, my wireless its always failing and crashing android, to resolve the problem had to go back to the 2.2.1 version from march that i found, and now all its good.

    The questions:

    Android version problems? not beeing reported has so?
    Or a problem with the hardware that only manifests, on the newer versions?

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

      there are issues but will be solved in the coming updates!

  • Sakura

    I had my Galaxy Fit for over 2 months which has been working fine until I recently upgraded the latest Firmware, and then the problem started. Connected, disabled, obtaining IP address from xxxx. Cannot access to internet at all. When type in *#*#526#*#*, it says, “Driver loading successful”. Any advice is very much appreciated.

    • Yogesh Patel

      The problem maybe with the firmware update. Revert back to the firmware that you had previously and check out whether it works or not !

        Can you detail the procedure? I am having this very problem in my Ace.

  • Mark

    And just tried Fix My Wifi, which for me is now called Perhaps Fix Someone Else’s Wifi But Not Mine :(

    BTW There is a 3 day demo version of Fix My Wifi if anyone else wants to give it a go

    I’ve got exactly the same problem as Aarti. I have Galaxy Ace Android v2.3.3. I have tried wifi fixer, wifi advanced configuration editor, #*#526#*#*, making router ssid unhidden (broadcast) – this last one seemed to help for a few hours then not.

    Any help would be gratefully received!

  • Aarti

    Have not yet updated as people reporting similar issues with gingerbread. Is there any other solution to this problem? Someone mentioned trying a static ip… What do you think?

    • the_metal

      hi
      I have the same issue as yours.
      I bought samsung galaxy mini gt-s5570 two days ago and the wifi worked fine for about an hour and then it keep showing about my network in the settings (remembered) then it switches to (not in range) and it keeps alternating between these two states even though am only 1 meter away from my router and i don’t think its my router problem cause i’m connecting normaly with nokia n81, nokia n82, samsung star gt-s5230w
      Any help would be appreciated .
      thanks guys.

      • Roy
