    I have a new Samsung Galaxy Note 10. I am new to Android but have strong experience with windows and pc's.
    In my house I have a modem / router which works fine with PC, Notebook and Laptop (and iphone)
    I worked through the settings/wifi networks and it shows I am connected to the home network.
    I can also use 3g though a sim successfully. But when I tap the internet icon it tries but finally says not connected.
    Any thoughts.
    Advanced settings on wifi are:
    proxy settings : None
    ip settings: DHCP
    status: Connected
    Signal Strength : Very Strong
    Link Speed: : 54 Mbps

    Any thoughts.
    Cheers :)

    Restart the router first and see what happens. People have reported here that this solved their issues. AFAIR in the US a lot of people have some real BS routers provided by their ISP.

    Just did that. Success.
    Even tho the rest of the pc's etc were still downloading etc.
    So yes, try reboot router.
    Many thanks.

    I keep getting stuck at "obtaining ip address" even though I have good signal, correct pasword (even get a message saying "secured, saved") then after "connecting" for a while during "obtaining IP address" I get a message saying "network disabled poor connection" even though I've been connecting to the same network (automatically) for weeks now. My boss connects with his laptop right next to me. HELP!
