hi
i am in india but my ace GT-S5830 was bought in Singapore. i updated through kies from GB 2.3.3 TO 2.3.6 today. but i encounter wifi problem. the internet connection works fine on my PC. but when i try to connect to wifi from my ace (broadband provider BSNL) it says connecting then i get this message:

have thought the same thing, but occasionally I still experience it. I have the same firmware from the same forum as you.

As a side-note does anybody know how to add language-specific letters? My country's specific diacritics are not shown in texts and I wouldn't like 2.3.3 back just for that

hi i found this link somewhere in this forum and it solved my problem with wi-fi .thanks for the one who gave this solution.hope this is useful.

file:///C:/WIFI%20CONNECTION%20FROM%20ACE%20IMPORTANT/fix-obtaining-ip-address-android-wifi.html.
he solution is to use a static IP for your WiFi connection, to do this:
  • From your android device, goto Settings > Wireless and networks > WiFi Settings > Click menu button (left) and select advanced.
  • You'll see an option "use static IP" under IP settings section. Enable it and enter the following parameters.
  • IP address : 192.168.1.253
  • Gateway: 192.168.1.1
  • Netmask: 255.255.255.0
  • DNS1: 8.8.4.4
  • DNS2: 4.4.4.4/8.8.8.8

hi! thanks in advance for your help
here's the thing:

when i tried to fill the " DNS2: 4.4.4.4/8.8.8.8 " i get a "Please type a valid IP address" message, however i tried
4.4.4.4
8.8.8.8
also
4.4.4.4 / 8.8.8.8 but nothing.

tried with the ones my laptop uses which are:
DNS 200.118.2.91
DNS 2 190.157.2.140

the connection successfully comes up but then the pages never get to load.

Hi, just dial *#*#526#*#* and wait for some steps to be executed. Once it says Successfully loaded, go and try again.. BOOM it works..

You need to do this whenever you get the WIFI Error.

It actually reloads the WIFI, similar way it does it when it restarts..

Its quite a popular solution, almost all users know this, but the problem here is that it does not works for everyone.
