Wifi connected, not working
I tried looking for an answer on the forums but didn't have much luck.
I got my Galaxy 3 10 days ago and am still discovering it considering that it's my first touchscreen phone (and Android), but everything's been fine 'till now, I have figured out most of the stuff by myself. Still, I got a new problem which is that WiFi simply is not working.
To connect at my house I had to set a static IP and it worked fine. When I'd try to connect outside I'd just uncheck the "use static IP" box and again - it worked. But for about 2 days now it connects but the internet is not working. I've tried Skype, Market, surfing.. nothing works. Neither at my home, nor outside.
Have no idea what's wrong or how to fix it.
Considering I have searched for the problem in the software and haven't found a solution, now I'm wondering if it had something to do with it being dropped once a couple of days ago. I don't use WiFi that much and really can't remember if the problem has started at that time. Everything else works fine. And it still won't connect at my house if I don't set a static IP, so connecting is in order.
Have any idea what's going on? Could the dropping be the cause of this? /:
