    Take the phone to a wifi hotspot (like McDonalds or a mall) and see if it connects to the internet. If it does it's a problem with your router setup. If it doesn't it's a problem with your phone or with some app you installed that's blocking internet access.

    Is there something on your router that's blocking it? Can you check via the admin control panel?

    Also, what's your software version? WiFi has been kinda flaky up until the .290 firmware.

    Have you tried changing DNS settings on the phone itself?

    What type of connection are you trying to use? 2.4 or 5 GHz?

    Settings, WiFi, long press the connection name, then select modify, then advanced. There should be an option to change DNS. Use Google servers, and

    I'm in work now with no access to wifi so that's from memory. I'll double check if that's correct when I get home.

    ok so went to the setting and it was on and

    so when i connect the first dns changes to ip address.

    so i told my buddy to connect and see if it is the same.

    when he connects the ip is different so i changed mine to the same as what he has

    and there it is working again fine just poor connection but it connects and goes on the net everything.

    on both different routers i did the same and it works.

    can you explain why this happened or how it got change because it did work before.

    dont even know if this is the right way?and does it mean when i try to connect to other router it will also need to be changed

    I'm not sure if you'll need to change it for every connection.

    If you change the IP settings to Automatic, see if that makes a difference. If yes and you can connect, you won't need to mess about every time you connect to a new network.
