I'm completely new to the smartphone/android buisness, as this is my first smartphone ever. I'm a bit of a computer guy, so I know how to work things around on a computer, but with my Galaxy Mini it's a whole different story.
Here's the thing, Back at my parent's house, I get instant access to their wi-fi network and, after entering the password, I can surf the net instantly, but back at my house, the Mini just keeps searching and searching to no avail, no wi-fi networks appear under the 'Network Notification' option, where wi-fi networks usually appear. I cannot see the neighbors nor my own network, thus, I can't connect to any of them.
The question here is;
Is my Galaxy Mini unable to see un-broadcasted (hidden) SSIDs?
If so, is there a workaround to it?
I've tried these steps :
- Manually connecting to the network, by entering the SSID and Password correctly.
[ All this does is show me a network under the 'Network Notification' option, but it says "Out of Range, Protected by WPA/WPA2 PSK". I know for a fact that I am NOT out of range, since I am straight next to the router.
- Hard-reset (Pulling the battery out while the phone is on)
[It indeed reset the phone, only to return with the same problems.
- Turning wi-fi off and back on.
[To no avail
- Writing a post on this forum, hoping some android/galaxy mini pro can answer me.
Hopefully this will get sorted out soon, because I am totally hyped about the phone, it being my first and such!
