I upgraded to ice cream sandwich last week and have issues connecting to my network with wifi.
I have just noticed that my phone no longer has a IP so would assume this the problem. I have restored to factory settings at least 5 times, using the different methods. Does anyone know how to fix this?
Hi, I have the Galaxy S II GT-I9100G. I have now managed to get access to the internet but it is so slow compared to previously and my Mrs Samsung Ace Plus.
I keep losing connection. Can someone advise me if when using wifi with ICS that the little wifi icon is animated now i.e. it has little orange/green arrows similar to using data package, similar for 3g etc. I didnt have this on Gingerbread, is this a new feature or because I am connecting using a static IP.
In order to save the static IP settings in Galaxy S2 under ICS:
- Long press your network in WiFi
- Choose "Modify network"
- Check "Show advanced options"
- Set "IP settings" to Static
- Enter your IPs + DNS
... AND ...
- Crucial...! Enter 24 for "Network prefix length". Don't assume that because that field shows 24 it's holding that value. It's empty!

So thankfully I am getting somewhere and thought I was going nuts because others had fixed this easily but I still had the problem. Hopefully as others see this reply and dont waste a week trying to fix the damn thing.

Anyway, thanks again for your contribution and hopefully this helps others,
I have the same problem what I do is connect to wi-fi on my wives phone which I have set up as a hot spot after connecting to her phone I connect back to the home WI-fi without a problem.
For some reason it resets the wi-fi settings.
It's a lot easier than resetting my phone.
