    12 days and samsung galaxy 3 has started giving me a few problems...for 4-5 days i used wifi to the max and was working perfect on my phone...one fine day when i tried switching on the wifi it switched off automatically after 10-15 seconds.i tried switinng the phone off and on (the solution of all the basic problems in phones ;) ) but it didnt work...
    When i called up samsung helpline i was asked to visit a nearest service center....there i was informed that they didnt have softwares for this phone and it might take 20-25 :eek: days to get it serviced........

    any one else acing this problem...or does any one have any solution....

    Android is too good but Samsung service in India is pathetic....i'll never buy any other samsung device for sure......

    I would backup all your data to your SD card and send it in to get serviced. It's probably a hardware defect.

    Drag down the menu from the top of your phone (Home)and click on Wi-Fi to turn it on (it will be green).
    Click on Setting -->Wireless and Network -->Wi-Fi Settings --> Click on Wi-Fi so the green check mark appears. This should turn on your Wifi.

    If you are using a home router, you have to enter your WEP/WAP key info again. I exited and had to re enter info. If I just turn it off, I don't.

    I have the same problem on my galaxy I5801. If i turn on wifi, wifi cannot find any connection, and automatically turn off itself. Any ideas?I have tried to turn off the phone, but it have not helped.

    I recently bought a Samsung Apollo I5800. At first it would not even recognise a wifi signal from my Belkin N router. It took several hours to find the solution. I changed the channel that the router broadcasts to channel 1 and this solved the problem. My Apollo now connects with no problem and the connection is stable. If you have problems with a wifi connection try changing the broadcast channel of your router until you find a channel that is compatible with all your devices.

    I had much the same problem as others, and none of the above solutions worked for me. Phone tried to connect to a wifi network which had previously worked fine with it. It hung trying to get an ip address from the router. (And don't worry - the issue wasn't with with encryption/password, or MAC filtering.) Even restoring to factory settings and deleting all data didn't fix it.

    The odd thing is that my router could see the phone, and as far as it was concerned, the router had given it an ip address. It's just that the phone hadn't chosen to receive and use this ip address.

    So I downloaded WiFi Buddy, logged onto the router, noted the ip address that the router had given the android phone (changed the device name too - but don't think that was iimportant) set up the router to always give that device the same ip address, and on WiFi buddy set up the phone to have the same fixed ip address. (Had to also enter data for the ip address of the access point, subnet mask and dns servers too, of course.) Now works a treat.

    Easy to switch off the fixed ip address on the phone when elsewhere too.
