The issue you're describing - everything works on my network except my Android - has been reported for every Android, iPhone and iPad.

It's a common issue where the addressing tables in your router get screwed up.

Rebooting the phone or going in/out of airplane mode only causes the router to re-attempt. Sometimes it works, but it's not the mobile device at fault - it's the router.

Every. Time.

I promise.

Also, check out "Wifi Analyzer"

Make sure that you're not sharing a channel with other routers in your neighborhood, swipe screen left/right to see.

Never use the default network name on your router, you're bound to get a neighbor doing the same, sooner or later.

If your router has an actual reset button, use that, otherwise, yeah, go for at least a full minute without power.

Hope this helps!
