    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?

    Yikes, add that to another one of the many problems the SGS2 is having with ICS.
    What version are you using so I may move the question to its respective thread?

    I've read that doing a factory reset can eliminate these odd bugs with the software update.

    hi it's version 4.0.3 downloaded via Kies. I have managed to connect to wifi using static ip but cant get on the internet.

    unsure what i need to do now. Its a joke, can anyone confirm if i use that odin3 software to go back to gingerbread if it affects warranty?

    crazy, I'm not very familiar with Odin and Kies (used it once to root my Tab).
    Which version of the Galaxy S2 are you using?

    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!

    Click "Save" and you're done.

    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.

    Let me know if it works for you
