    I had the same problem with my wife's Galaxy mini. A few weeks ago, my router was broken and I had to switch back to my old router. Suddenly, all wifi troubles with the galaxy mini where gone.

    My broken router got replaced and when I switched back to the new router, the troubles where back...

    Seems to be a problem with WPA2. My router (D-Link DIR652) supports auto WPA/WP2 and that causes the problem with the galaxy. I changed the config in the router to only support WPA and everything on the galaxy is working fine...

    I have a Galaxy I-9000 and that worked just fine with wpa/wpa2...

    Hello i have a galaxy mini and this is my problem. When i try to connect to my wifi network it says obtaining IP adress a few times then it says remembered. When i click connect it says network out of range. I had to go to my computer and set to static ip but that dindt work long. IT worked 5 days then the same error came up. Please Help. This really annoying because my Fathers Nokia e52 connects without a problem every time.

    Hi, Tried this on my Samsung Galaxy Ace, it worked as in it did give me a message that said:
    WlanTest Engineering Mode

    Driver loading successful

    After that the WiFi did startup alright.. but it is showing my WiFi network as "Not in range, ...." whereas here I am sitting with my laptop connecting to the same router which is also right beside the phone!

    Any solutions for this one?

    I have 3000+ memos in built-in Galaxy Mini Notes, does resetting destroy them?

    I think it does destory them, resetting changes back to the state when you just bought the phone.... It delets all settings, so probably it will delete them to ... Sync them with Kies to the PC and then format your phone...:)

    I've tried to sync them tens of time, but it doesn't work.. :( it says sync success once but I think it false notification since I don't see them in Outlook..

    Also, I've rooted the phone, it means the warranty is voided. I plan to restore the ROM after I get a way to backup my memos..

    Don't be sad.... You can always use alternatives if one fails...
    Try to use Android Wifi manager from mobile action (uses wifi to communicate betn pc and mobile) It requires you to download android sync manger app on your phone...
    Or use Mobile go application... You can also use Dropbox (cloud storage, you get 2 gb free. It also requires you to download an app for managing files on your phone...)
    :):) Try them one after the other (though all work) and see which meets your needs the best...

    I seem to be having the exact same problem as a lot of people n here, but I'll add my voice to the chorus of complaint...

    Just got a brand-new Samsung Galaxy Mini s5570 running on Android 2.2 Froyo, and every time I attempt to connect to my home Wi-Fi network, it immediately disconnects.

    I've tried removing the battery, restarting the Wi-fi (on the phone and the router itself), restore factory settings, and using the engineering mode fix on *#*#526#*#*. So far nothing has fixed the problem, and using the 526 fix did nothing but make every network appear as 'out of range'.

    Try giving manual IP and gateways in advance settings for your mobile while using home router which assign IP using DHCP method.

    I have the same problem, I try to connect to wifi and it stays on "getting IP" for a while and then just kinda gives up.

    Following what I found here I set up a static IP, did the 526 thing and rebooted like a million times.

    It connected for like a minute but in a weird way, it said it was connected, the app manager said the app market [I use it to check if it's loading right] was downloading, but it didnt really load, nothing came up on the screen and youtube did the same thing.

    So I disconnected just to connect again and see if it worked but now it wont even show my network!

    Help me D: I don't want to have bought an expensive phone for the internet not to work TwT

    have these problems to before..
    samsung said that it was a normal problem on froyo 2.2.1
    so i decided to flash my firmware to gingerbread 2.3.4

    then my wifi problem is gone.

    just to check if the problem was the firmware.

    i flash my galaxy mini again to froyo and the wifi problem came back.

    so guys if you want to get rid of it.

    try to upgrade to gingerbread

    this would be helpful.
    just follow her steps.

    I upgraded to 2.3.5 WKS2 and i still get the wifi error
    When i try to type in *#*#526#*#* the wifi network says it is not in range after driver loading is sucessful.
    I have to restart my whole phone to make wifi to work, only to have an error a couple minutes later.
    I have tried so many things such as factory reset, clear cache, format sd card, changing firmware and i still get this error

    [UPDATE] More testing has shown that this fix has to be re-applied whenever you go away from the wireless connection and then come back. So, not much of a fix at all. Now trying the code mentioned above *#*#526#*#*

    I bought a Mini last week and had some similar troubles with wi-fi. This is what fixed it for me (so far): Try logging into your router and changing the 'Wireless Channel' setting
