Default wifi connected, but no internet??

I just connect my evo with my home network, and it finds network ok and everyting.
I even see 4 wifi signal bars on my evo screen, but no internet connection. I am using my laptop through that wifi now without any issue.

I am using netgear WGR614 g/bwireless router.

Anyone knows what is the problem?

It's either the router is running a security thing that the phone can't connect through, or it's something wrong with permissions. Might be an IP conflict, though that's highly doubtful.

Is there security in place on the router?
Have you gotten any pop ups on the computer saying anything about a conflict with another device on the network sharing the same IP adress?

Nope not an ip issue at all.

My laptop and my wife's iphone is connected to the router and no problem.

My evo says its connected and everything. Just no internet...

@peekapoo:

Have you had any luck with this as yet?

I was having the signal strength issues with my routers here at work, both of which are 50+ feet away. I had a spare WAP (Linksys 610WAPn), so I set it up in my office. I am literally 3 feet from it. Everything worked fine for the first few hours. Then I decided to watch the WC on Sprint TV, which of course means turning of WiFi. Since doing this, I now have the issue that I connect fine to my WAP, get an IP, signal is excellent, etc. BUT, I can't get any data at all.

I have tried several things with my WAP:
WPA2
WPA
WEP
Changed the channel
Changed the password

None works.

I have also walked my Evo over to 2 of the other WAPs in the office and I get the same thing. I connect to the WAP with full bars and an IP, but can't get data.

I have also restarted the phone with no luck.

Anyone else with this issue? If you have had this and resolved, please let us know how. Very frustrated right now. I have started (last night at home) using WiFi for data and turning off 3G to save battery. Worked very well last night and planned to do the same at work.

Thank you ahead of time.

I have encountered this problem before and may have found a fix... well for me at least. Login to your router and change your router type to either "B" or "G". Don't put "B/G". I don't know why but i had the same problem as you. I just played around with my wireless router and changed the Type from "B/G" to B or G only and it works fine.

Try unplugging the router, wait a minute, then plug it back in. I find this happens about once a week on my laptop. I will be connected to the router, but not to the internet. A power cycle usually fixes it.

Thanks. I forgot to mention that in my post. I have tried all settings (except N of course):
Mixed
B/G
B only
G only

Still have the same issue.

I have read somewhere else of trying a factory reset on the phone. If I can't connect back to my home router(s) tonight, that will probably be the direction I take.

The WAP is brand new, but I have done the reboot thing several times as I have changed the settings. Also, it isn't just this WAP. It is 3 separate WAPs. One is a Linksys WAP610n, both of the others are Linksys WAP54G. I believe this is an issue on the phone itself, I am just at a loss on how to repair.

Thanks everyone. It looks like my Evo is having issues with the network here in my office. I tested on my Linksys and my Airport Extreme at home last night and had no issues. I still have the same issue in the office, though.

I probably swap more hotspots every day than anybody. I have under my belt, downloaded, tested and rated every wifi app and widget available.

The One:

"Wifi Manager" <-free too

by: Kotya Vasilyev
(drops to knees and bows at the mention of creator's name)


I keep this widget at the top front center of my homescreen as the information it displays, and the variables it commands are more vital to me than any other status. On the widget I can toggle wifi on/off, view status, signal strength and see which network I'm currently on.

From that single widget I can hunt and swap networks in literally 3 clicks.

My favorite, most used and most indispensable app!



For anybody having wifi issues, I couldn't recommend this treasure enough.

No adds either.


To troubleshoot your individual wifi connec issues, put the Wifi Manager widget on your desktop, click on it and 'refresh' for networks.

Press your menu button then "radar".

This shows you the various networks' channels and signal strengths. If the network that's giving you trouble is sharing a channel with one or more other networks, log into your router, set it to an unused channel and reboot.

Make sure as many of your router's client configs (b,g,n, link speed, half/full duplex, negotiations, etc...) are set to "Auto" negotiate as possible, as what might be good for one device may be exclusionary to another.

Make sure your router's firmware is up to date etc...

It's also a good idea to remember or note all of your fav protected hotspot's passwords and clear out your wifi history (disconnect and "forget") to avoid conflicts when having connec issues.

I've heard reports that the Evo's wifi was sub-par, but must contend that I have only experienced it's wifi excellence!

And better things are yet to come...

If you all are trying to help this is very frustrating.

I'm having the same problem where i'm connected to my home network, but I cant retrieve data from the net.

and the conclusion was to go get a wigget that DOES NOT HAVE a "Refresh" network option.

Or "Dont connect you your work router" I need help.

How am I connected and not recieving data?
Who do I need to call, HTC? Android? or Cisco?

can anyone help?

This doesn't seem exactly like the same situation, but I had some internet problems last week. The modem was fine, but I couldn't get the internet on my computer. If I turned my phone's wifi on, I got a full signal, but the phone wouldn't connect to the internet.

My phone was getting the same wifi signal it always does at home, so I guess it could still detect the modem, but wasn't able to notice that the modem wasn't getting internet.

** SOLUTION ** for Phone: HTC EVO, Router: Linksys E3000

1) I CALLED SPRINT (ever think of that?) Or in your case you should call your carrier.
2) They said simply. Connect to your Wifi First! and from your phone Press Menu-> Settings -> System updates -> Update profile
3) Majic it worked case closed

All these other stories about standing on 1 leg barking like a dog, all while naming your top 10 pizza's in reverse order is SO frustrating.

Well I am new here and very new to smartphones, but I had this problem. I did what WIFI said and got message it was configuring something, but it didnt work, tried again same thing. Powered down the phone, unplgged the router for about 25 secs, then turned on phone, redid my security for wifi, it now asked what key and for security code. Works great now! Thanks!

Before it would only work if i turned off security on my router settings.

Default Disable WMM

I was having this same problem using a Netgear WGR614 router. The solution I discovered was to disable Wireless Multimedia Extensions (WMM) in the router settings.

Default Worked for me when using static IP configuration

I had the same problem, wifi connects to my office network successfully but not data traffic(even the ping requests fail). Then instead of using DHCP, I configured the same IP and other settings(DNS, Gateway etc)(which I got using DHCP) statically.
This solved the problem and now I can access the Internet too using my Samsung Galaxy phone.

Hope this helps.

There is no need to be rude about this. Did you consider that the problem, despite presenting the same symptoms, might actually be different for different people and that your "Majic" solution might only be a solution for you? I had the exact same symptoms, and did what you said, but like several others in this thread who tried your solution, it did not work for me. I ended up going into my router settings and finding an option titled "WI-FI PROTECTED SETUP" which was enabled, and disabled it. Once I did this, my connection started working perfectly. So if anyone else has tried everything in this thread to no avail, try turning off WPS on your router.

Default POSSIBLE SOLUTION: DNS Issue

After trying all the above, I went into my router settings and updated my DNS values for DNS 1 and 2 to the Google Public DNS (8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4).

It could be that the DNS entries I had set were not reachable by the EVO, but they were able to be used by my laptop and other devices.

I would give that a try.

Default Static IP works for me

I've had lots of problems with this too, but I saw this link on another site and it has worked for me on my Xoom. It basically walks you through how to config your IP to be static on a Xoom, but is probably similar on other Android OS devices. Motorola Xoom connects to wi-fi but not the internet – How to fix it Of Code and Me
In addition to this I logged into my router and reserved that IP so there would never be a conflict. I also had to restart my router after reserving the IP for it to work, but I've been using WIFI since.

Hi all,
this is my first post here. I had same problem, connected to WiFi and no internet connection. So after who knows how many resets of my phone, I did as follows on my router:

· Enable DHCP (if not already)
· Set IP address pool
· Set default gateway
· Set preferred DNS
· And in my case (my office) FQDN of my LAN
· Reset router

That was it. Worked after that. Hope this will be helpful to someone.

...oh, and yes, router is TP-Link and phone LGP500.

Hi guys,

I have 3 wifi routers, two linksys WRT54G and one TP-Link841N, all of them running DD-WRT firmware. My Motorola Milestone , could connect and navigate in one of the Linksys and the TP-Link.
But, on one of the Linksys I faced the same problem, I could connect to the router but no internet data at all. And it was just the nearest router to my desk...
I found that I couldn't even ping the router I was connected to.
A bunch of laptops uses this router the whole day, so I couldn't mess arround with it. Tried all the possible setups in the phone without sucess.
I did the hard way, went through all setup pages of two of the routers and found out that the failing router had "WMM Support" disabled against the operative router and it worked !!!!

If you use DD-WRT on your router, it's on Wireless --> Advanced Settings , end of the page.

Good luck.

Default Problem.

Hi there, I have read through this thread and I still have an issue on my Samsung galaxy SII:

At home, in my apartment, my phone can connect to my router in 2 ways. First I can deactivate "static IP" and it has no problem connecting, secondly I can activate static IP and simply type in the following information:

IP Address:192.168.1.1
Gateway:192.168.1.1
Netmask:255.255.255.0
DNS1:
DNS2:

I do not type anything into the DNS areas, If I do then I cannot connect at home. However At work no matter what I do I cannot connect. I can get "connected" to the wireless by activating static IP and typing:

IP Address:192.168.1.1
Gateway:192.168.1.1
Netmask:255.255.255.0
DNS1:192.168.1.3
DNS2:192.168.1.1

But even though I get connected to the wireless I do not have connection to the internet. I am a consultant where I work so I cant really go around telling them to restart routers or all this nonsense just so i can use my phone. So I was wondering if there was anything anyone would recommend me doing? If I cant use then so be it, just really annoying to have a "smart" phone that isnīt very smart.

All my patients Iphones can connect while they are in my office, but my samsung canīt...

*Edit

following this advice:

Scroll down to the ‘IP settings’ drop down and switch it from DHCP to Static
In the ‘IP address’ box enter the same IP address which is shown higher up the same form
In the ‘Gateway’ box you will need to put the IP address of your router, to find this out I opened a command prompt window on a PC on the same network and typed ipconfig this will give you a Default gateway address which is what you need
In the the ‘Network prefix length’ box put 24 (this assumes the subnet mask from ipconfig is 255.255.255.0)
Finally in the ‘DNS 1′ box put the same IP you put in the Gateway box


Following these instruction I entered the numbers that I got, being:

IP Address:10.184.5.150
Gateway:10.184.5.1
Netmask:255.255.255.0
DNS1:10.184.5.1
DNS2:10.184.5.1

And I can again, connect to the wireless network but still without any internet connection. I did also try various variations of those numbers, with and without the DNS inserted etc and nothing has worked.

I will keep this post updated with different solution that i attempt, for anyone who has a similar problem.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards.

Default MintyFresh

I've had this same problem since I installed a new wireless router. Inspire connects to router but no access to web.

I now have access through this router. I took a note from a previous poster about B/G settings in the router. The choices in my router were: B/G/N, B/G or just N. It was set to B/G/N by default. I changed it to B/G just to see if it made a difference and bingo, my phone know connects to the web.

My guess is that some phones can't deal with N settings in the router setup.

Hope this helps somebody.

Hi, it seems that the matter of issue depends on individual factors. That's how I got to the root of it:

1) tried to ping my HTC Sensation from laptop in my LAN. Success!
2) then pinged an URL from laptop and got the ip (smth. like 'ping nba.com').
3) I enered ip of the website in HTC browser and got the page of NBA on the screen.

Obviously in my case it's DNS issue.

I got into my router settings and found out DHCP service was configured for my ISP's name servers. (somehow it worked for laptops, iPhone and Nokia devices, but not android)

I changed DHCP DNS1 to the LAN IP of my router and got internet on HTC after router reboot. Simple as that!

Router: TP-LINK TL-WR841N (WMM enabled, mixed b/g/n mode on, dhcp on, hidden WLAN on, automatic WPA2 security mode)

Device: HTC Sensation (Android 2.3.4)

Try it!

Default Connected successfully to office wifi. But no data connection.

I recently bought SG2, tried to connect to office wifi using the domain name/password. PEAP/MSCHAPv2 and wpa2 enterprise connection. It is successfully connected to router and obtains IP(no IP conflict). but when I open browser no connection.

Downloaded ping app, tried pinging to my laptop it worked but when i tried pinging to default gateway no response.

With the help of some replies in internet I dowloaded server certificates and tried to put it to mobile. but it will not accept the .cer and .crt format ones. As it tells in posts it only accepts .p12 format. but no one in my office knows how to get that format and I didnt get satisfactory asnwer in internet.

my office will not allow any static IP to set.

I have a similar issue, and it appears that the device has internet connection but cannot resolve DNS. I can ping and traceroute IP addresses, but not domain names.

Does anyone know how to flush DNS cache or hard-code DNS servers only, on android devices?

I can't do all the static IP or router config BS because it happens across multiple networks which I don't always have control over.

Hey all,

Just got my first Android device, and was pretty disappointed to find out that I can't access internet through office wireless, while back home everything is fine. My old Nokias (N82/Symbian, and N810/Maemo) work just fine on both networks without any problems/interventions, which would suggest that this is something Android specific.
I can not change office router settings, and setting static IPs is not an elegant solution, which in my case does not work either.
I can ping the router, but URL names nor outside IP addresses are not accessible.

Anyone found any solutions so far?

Cry wifi problem

Hi Guys,

I have been using Galaxy ACE running Gingerbread 2.3.4 (stock rom) and it's perfect at last two months. Since last week I have weird problem that when I connect to the wifi (shared by laptop running win7 pro + connectify), the host will go bluescreen.

After a week of research, now my laptop won't go bluescreen anymore and the wifi is connected but I only can connect to the internet for the first two minutes. Afterward the connection is lost somewhere. The wifi is verified to be running by three devices: another laptop running win 7, Samsung Wave S8500 running Bada OS, and Huawei Ideos U8800 X5 running Gingerbread 2.3.7.

I have read and tried solutions from the forums. AllShare do nothing about it. I tried static IP and it fails. I tried 'My wifi fix' app and no results. Also I have tried rebooting wifi driver with '*#*#526#*#*' and nothing. I deleted the DHCP_list as well and no result. I connected to KIES and it says no firmware update for me.

I dig through the settings and assured that my galaxy obtained an IP from DHCP server. I rooted the phone, installed terminal emulator and try to ping the local gateway (wifi IP 192.168.2.1) and it says 100% packet loss.

Now my troubleshooting is stuck and I have no idea what to do next. Anyone can help?

Meanwhile I'll keep reading and trying.....

What fixed mine was...
I am using a wireless router in the kitchen. I was using an old wired router to connect my printer and computer in the bedroom. The wired router had dhcp disabled and i was only using the 4-port switch on it. On my Galaxy S2, I was able to ping every node on my network but unable to get internet. As soon as I unplugged the wired router, I was able to get internet. Since then, I purchased a new wired switch (signal not good) for my bedroom. No problems since.

Anyone knows what is the problem?
Here is what I did:

1) Open "Network and Sharing Center".
2) Click "Change adapter settings" on the right.
3) Alternate click the wireless network connection that you are trying to use and select "Status".
4) Click on "Details"
5) Use "Static IP" on your Android device and enter those settings you saw in step 4.Screenshot: i.imgur.com/bTzSC (Apparently I'm not allowed to post pics in my first post)
6) Enter an IP address on your Android device. But it should not be the same as the one in the pic. Put for eg. 192.168.1.88(In my case).

It should work.

I just changed the Type and it worked!!! Well,let's see 2-3 more days what will happen. Hope the problem fixed! Anyway THX!

I had the same problem with an LG thrill. Seems like these are all router/network interface issues. After doing a factory reset on my dlink dir-615, and having the same connecting but not really problem, I found that switching my dns to the google addresses mentioned previously, and disabling "wmm" seems to have corrected my problem. I am now able to get data through my wifi connection.

Subnet- 255.255.255.0 --> access point subnet
Getway- 192.168.16.1 --> the real router IP not the access point nor the mikrotik server
DNS1- 192.168.16.1 --> the real router IP not the access point nor the mikrotik server

Default Solved... with ICS..

For the people who are finding difficulty in getting connected to Office enterprise wifi connection you just have to wait some more time till you get the ICS or you can flash the custom ROM. I assume gingerbread can't handle the server certificates efficiently. therefore it will connect to network but Gateway will be unreachable. I tried with the latest android 4.0.3 firmware, it connected without any issue. But I will wait till I get the Stable MOD for that.

Having trouble with no internet connection problem also, what is different is that my emails will not come through if WIFI is enabled at home. If I turn off WIFI then, my connection will send emails and be able to get on internet. Just using the phone's connection. Not sure why my emails can not come through my phone connection when WIFI is turned on for the phone though?

Will look at DD-WRT settings, not sure if problem started after flashing an old router for my Dish Network connection with this box. Or one of the latest updates on phone's firmware is the problem with Internet connection.

I am on Sprint with unlimited, but updating podcast feeds you need a WIFI connection for faster downloads.

Default finally have internet!

Hey dudes, I was having the same problem on my android operating smartphones. Couldn't connect to wifi in some cases and had to use allshare app. I was then able to connect but had no internet. So what I did was create a password protected (WEP) guest network on my wireless settings on my router page, put a passphrase in and generated a keyphrase to use as the password and voila, immediate wifi connection and internet on the phones. Good luck!

I would give that a try.
I had tried this setup using static ip but i was trying to use ip settings to the new google open network, did not work. I have been sooo frustrated because I just started experiencing this connectivity problem(trying to obtain ip address). It worked fine after upgrade to 2.2, so I was very confused! I hate to use a static ip, but if I have to, my problem is solved for now using my ip settings w/google dns!
Thank you sooo much!!!

Ok,

There seem to be some variants of this problem. I've had, and worked around the DNS variant tonight on a hotel wifi in Argentina. I did it by using the static ip workaround setting the DNS 1 server to be the same as the gateway address rather than the DNS IP provided by DHCP, and leaviny DNS 2 blank.

What's interesting though is that I have TWO android devices and the problem and workaround were identical for both. One is an Archos tablet running android 2.2.1, the other an HTC Desire Z running 2.3.3, both with their latest manufacturer firmware. My girlfriend's iphone had no issues with the same WAP.

I believe that this fairly solidly proves that this is an ANDROID issue and not related to specific hardware.

I have also discovered, after playing with the settings some more, that the problem is with only ONE of the specific DNS IPs being supplied by DHCP. I can use the other, manually set on its own, with no problems. The problem IP is 192.168.67.15 - a private range IP, wheras the working one is a 192.14 - ie a public address. I believe this might be the key to getting this resolved if anyone from Google is reading this. The network is 192.168.0.0/24 with a gateway at 192.168.0.1. My subnet mask is definitely set to 255.255.255.0 as well (and the DHCP sets this correctly too) though it seems a possible explanation that android is somehow not using the correct mask for 192.168 networks. In any case it seems to me a strong possibility that android is doing something odd related to private IPs.

I hope this post is useful to anyone experiencing this issue; please please, anyone who can confirm or discount what I've observed here, please share what you found.

Same issue with my Galaxy S2 tab when I visit my dad's house and the router in the OP. Been driving me nuts. If I unplug the router off and back on then I get net for about 5-10 minutes then I get errors.

I know this is an old thread, but I was having the same issue on my HTC Evo V 3D. I ended up resetting my router (Linksys E3000) to factory and re-setting it back up. Works great now.

Default fixed

Had this issue with my HTC wildfire s, and tried many of the suggestions above to no avail. However, disabling wifi proxy settings worked for me.
Here's how:
Settings> wireless & networks > wifi settings.
Press the menu button. select advanced. Go to proxy settings. Uncheck enable/disable proxy.

Fixed! Hooray!

BTW, the HTC wildfire s sucks. Very little internal memory makes it difficult to do anything a smart phone should be capable of.
