Did you try rebooting the wifi router?

thanks for the reply.
yeah, many times but nothing helped.. even 2.3.4 is not working.. but i have to check it under different wifi networks.. coz till now i have been using it in home only and its stopped working there. I even deleted the mac-id of the NS from the wifi provider's list but that didn't helped either.
3g costs a lot in india if you wanna stay online for a longer time via mobile.. so thats y need this working...

I've just had a Nexus S upgrade - did you get this, and is it what broke your WiFi?

PS I use the "Android System Info" app - this may tell you more about the state of your WiFi.

Maybe it's having some sort of issue with your Wi-Fi's encryption type. Try using WPA (aka TKIP) instead of WPA2 (aka AES). You may even consider trying WEP if it still isn't working. WEP is a pretty weak encryption compared to WPA, but it'll still keep pesky neighbors off of your network.

Also, check what channel your router is broadcasting on. Depending on your Nexus S model, it may only be compatible with channels 1-11, though most should work with channels 1-14, I believe.
