Wi-Fi problems! Web Browsing working with Opera but not with Android Browser! - Galaxy ACESupport

    Hello :)

    I have been facing this problem since 2 days after I bought the Galaxy Ace.
    When I am at home, the phone connects successfully to Wi-Fi and I can browse the web normally using opera.
    My home router is a D-Link and it uses WEP security.
    The problem is that the Android Web Browser, all Android applications and some others hardly get the Wi-Fi internet or don't get it at all! If it gets it, it takes between one and five minutes to load the google homepage!

    What is weird:
    - The Android Web Browser works perfectly with WAP mobile package.
    - The Android Web Browser works perfectly with the University's Wi-Fi (they use a complicated security system to connect to Wi-Fi, and it's WPA2)
    - The Android market is not working anymore (hardly gets the Internet).

    I tried all this but it didn't solve the problem:
    - Applications: "Wifi Fixer" and "FXR Wifi fix and repair"
    - *#526#
    - FACTORY RESET
    - Uninstalling Opera
    - Turn Sync Off
    - Turn Packet Data off
    - Logout then login to the google account
    - Clear the cache of Android Market, Android Web Browser, Download Manager etc....


    The Android Version is 2.2.1 (Middle East) and the phone is not rooted.


    ANY SUGGESTION WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!

  2. I have a similar problem. I've found the following apps to not work correctly when I connect my Sprint HTC Evo 4G (CM 7.0.3.1) to my home wireless network (Apple Airport Extreme Base Station):

    Facebook
    Amazon MP3 (Only the cloud player doesn't work)
    Netflix
    Speedtest (Downloads fine but shows 0.00Mbps for uploads)

    Again, all features works great on 3G or on the wireless network at work, which leads me to suspect there's something wrong with my home wifi setup. But I have updated the Airport Extreme to the latest firmware and reset it several times yet the problem persists. Any idea what might be causing this?

    Also, the Android browser works fine for me.
