Internet Browser Problem
My Galaxy W has problems browsing the internet.
When I open a web page, either via Google or directly, I often get a message to say the web page cannot be accessed. The progress bar on the browser moves about 10% and then stops.
This happens at home, or on the road.
When I'm home, I use WiFi via my wireless router, where I have a very fast and reliable fibre-to-the-cabinet connection, but I still have problems. However, I can connect to the web using my laptop, so it's not a router wireless problem.
Away from home, my mobile network connection has plenty of signal, but I still get problems.
If I use tethering, then I have no problem using the Galaxy as a WiFi hotspot, so the mobile network internet access is working fine.
This suggested that the problem might be an interaction between WiFi and mobile data.
As an experiment, at home I disabled Use Packet Data. I then found internet access works OK. So now, at home, I disable this option.
Does anyone else have similar problems?
How can I get WiFi working well at home without the need to disable Use Packet Data?
