    Exclamation Wifi stop working for samsung galaxy S2

    Hi,

    I have bought Galaxy S2 just two months back. My wifi was working fine until one day it stopped working. When I switch on my wifi, it just scan for the network and then gets off. My other devices are working fine with the router. The same problem exists even after doing a factory setting for the phone. I am in big trouble don't know what to do. Please help.

    Thanks,
    Rishi

    Have you tried going into your settings> wireless networks>wifi settings and long pressing on your router connection to bring up a menu then select "forget connection" then try reconnecting to it and see if that helps.

    Also sometimes resetting router works too. Unplug for a few minutes and reconnect.

    Thanks allot both ronnie8890 and Paul...i really appreciate your response...
    @Paul: I have reset the router but still the problem exists.
    @ronnie8890: I am not able to find the "router connection" button inside the wifi setting of my galaxy s2.

    There are few things worth noticing about the problem:
    1) My PC is detecting so many wireless networks around here but my wifi detects none because it seems to me that the wifi is not even getting started in my phone ... no wifi notification symbol.
    2) On starting other wifi related setting like "wifi direct", my phone hangs and it shows a dialogue to force close it.

    Hope the additional information may help you to analyse the issue.
    Thanks allot.

    Since you can't even connect that makes my advice obsolete at the moment.

    Have you tried a 10 minute battery pull?...no cheating.

    Have you tried a factory reset on the phone?

    Edit~i see you already tried a factory reset. If a battery pull doesn't help. I would take it to your local phone provider and see what they say.

    I just went through this a second ago trying to figure out why I have both the wi-fi icon and 4g icon at the same time. Is your "allow data network" box checked?

    I don't have a gs2 my self so I was just running you through some general maintenance type thugs hoping it would fix it. I will keep digging for something that may get it to work. Just hang in there. My self or someone else will hopefully find a fix.
