I'm having this same issue on a regular basis. Yesterday, I fixed it by resetting the phone. WiFi worked until this morning where it broke again. Not sure what's causing the problem, but the "sync all" is not a working solution for me. WiFi shows it's connected, I have an ip address. I'm getting good, strong signal, but none of my apps will connect. No internet, Qik, or mail. Nothing.

Hi, having all the same problems. The youtube app works fine and so does the gmail and talk app but the browser will not load a single page. I've reset my router, messing with nearly every setting. Please help!

yes do this. my evo seems to kill my router. works fine and then it will stop. it will also sometimes block the wifes laptop.

if my evo is on wifi and her computer loses the internet but keeps wifi connection. i just turn off wifi on my phone and have her switch off her airport and then back on and she is good.

when its just my evo that doesn't get the internet i reboot my modem and router and all is good.

I am the exact same issues with my Evo. When I am on 3G, everything works great, but as soon as I switch on the WiFi, forget it.

I have tried deleting the network off of my phone and putting it back on, but nothing happened. Reset the modem, the router, all of it... Still nothing..

Please guys, there has to be someone out here that knows what the heck is going on and what to do to fix this (at least I hope there is)....

sounds like ip conflicts. have you guys completely reset the router to factory settings and set everything back up..one at a time connect the devices to the router so everyone gets a fresh ip?

I ended up resetting my modem, router, and then deleted the WiFi connection that i had on my Evo. When I connected back ti my network everything worked.

So far so good... keep your fingers crossed lol.

Default I fixed it with my phone

Make sure that you don't have your static IP checked off. To get to that screen go to your settings>WiFi and wireless networks>WiFi settings>push the menu button>advanced. Then make sure it doesn't have the setting for the static IP checked. it worked for me!

Had the same problem. Turned out that I had a proxy address set to 1.1.1.1. Everything except the Android browser worked. I tried Opera, which worked. It was after that that the Android browser stopped. Uninstalled Opera, and it still did not work. Cleared the proxy address and it started working again.

I had this issue, or one that was similar, with the stock ROM of my Sprint HTC Hero. I could connect to my Wi-Fi router, and it would work just fine, but then after I put it to sleep, some minutes later it would stop working but stay connected.

This all happened after I had moved to my Sprint HTC EVO 3D, but was still using my Sprint HTC Hero as a Wi-Fi enabled Internet device. I tried a static IP address and that seemed to help, but it never eliminated the problem completely until I flashed a different ROM.

Wink Solution

Signed up because I had this problem and found a easy solution that I dont see posted here:

TCP/IP STACK RESET:


Just do the following:

click Start, type CMD in search bar, right-click CMD, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.


Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults typing: netsh winsock reset catalog
press enter

Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults: netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log
and press enter

Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults: netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log
and press enter

Reboot the machine.

Problem solved

I joined just so that I could say a huge thank you to you for this advice!! It worked brilliantly and I was just so relieved I wanted to thank you personally.. My Ex was the computer buff..I am a total computer Bimbo..Lol..A month ago he was removed forcibly from my house by the police after going beserk with a butchers knife through the furnishings..He also damaged my pc and threw my phone across the room..My pc is beyond repair..Am using my sons laptop atm..I could not get my Hero phone to connect to the net at all..Was just about to call Virgin and beg a new contract phone off them which would've pushed my monthly bill up considerably. But first I borrowed my sons laptop and came online for a possible solution..Found nothing at all till your reply that worked!! I am now happilly connected to the net again. I can't begin to thank you enough for this..So very much appreciated, xx

This totally worked. The proxy wasn't the same "1.1.1.1" it was a phrase to do with proxy (sorry I deleted it without reading it all) but when I deleted it my browser worked! SWEET!!!
