    My android market doesn't seem to work on my home wifi network. It works on my data plan though. All other applications which require internet run on the wifi network flawlessly. What could be wrong?

    P.S. I own a Samsung Galaxy Ace.

    Sounds like a firewall problem. The Android market works on TCP/UDP port 5228 so if it's being blocked, you'll need to open it up. Most home routers work on one of two principles when it comes to ports ... block everything incoming and outgoing except for the most commonly used ports, or open everything outgoing but block all incoming. I would suspect you have the former.
