    I have been trying to connect to the wi-fi on my new Samsung Galaxy S2 , my wi-fi is provided by Orange so I have a livebox at home . I have checked under the box for the key needed to set up the connection but my phone just says "scanning" then "authenticating " and then disconnect , before repeating everything again . I've triple checked that the key is correct and have managed to set it up on another of my phones .

    Any ideas what's wrong ?

    Hi there, did you manage to resolve this problem? I have a new Galaxy S2 and am having exactly the same problem trying to connect to my Orange Livebox. Would be grateful for any advice......

    Hi there,

    Try setting your wireless setting to "Use static IP" (settings_Wireless network_Wi-fi settings_Advanced_Use static IP)

    Then put in the following information:

    IP address:

    If this does not work then try to the same thing but but leave both DNS feilds clear.

    Hope it helps.
