2.3.6 Wifi Isusses

    Alright, my Nexus S does not seem to be connecting to wifi properly. I am based in the UK but am in Singapore at the moment so I am not turning on Data Roaming because I cant afford a 10 Billion dollar roaming bill.

    Anyway, when I first arrived my phone connected to the Wifi perfectly and began to transfer data (got onto Facebook and what not) and the little Wifi symbol was full bars and green.

    I have an old iPhone I use with a local SIM card when I am out and about in order to be a cheapo, but I came back to find my Nexus S not connecting to the wifi. Normally if my phone is on sleep it takes a few seconds for the Wifi to switch itself on and go from White to Green. Except it wont go from white to green, it stays as White meaning I have no access to the internet on my phone.

    Model Number: Nexus S
    Android Version: 2.3.6
    Baseband Version: I9023XXF1
    Kernel Version: 2.6.35.7-gf563ef
    android-build@apa28 #1
    Build Number:GRK39F
    Mobile Carrier: Vodafone UK


    Any suggestions how to fix this?

    Thanks in advance

    go to setting>wireless & network>wifi
    tap the connection you're using
    tap forget
    turn off your wifi
    reboot
    go to setting>wireless & network>wifi
    turn on your wifi
    tap the connection again
    tap connect

    I have tried that but I still have no change, the Wifi bar is still white and no connection can be established.

    have you tried other hotspots as well?

    No, my access to those is limited the closest chance to that might be when I go to Thailand in a few days but so far all other Phones in the house, (iPhone 4, Blackberry and an LG) connect fine. I will try to find another hotspot to connect to and see how that goes. But it may take a few days
