    I just replied on
    this other thread...

    What i understand from all forum posts all over the internet it has either to do with the latest software version or with the type of wifi security your network is using...

    Hey guys I had posted this question myself now I figured out what the problem was....it was the windows firewall...when I switched on the laptop...I wasn't able to connect to the internet using Wi-Fi...to use the Wi-Fi in xperia u while the laptop is on turn off the firewall till u use the Wi-Fi in ur mobile..or in the list of allowed devices include your xperia u mobile...try this it might work ..if it still doesn't work go to google play n download Wi-Fi analytics app and connect to the Wi-Fi through this app..it connects to the best possible network available judging on the signal strength :) ...I did this in my xperia u it worked me :) please post responses so that I ll know if it worked for others :)

    It may be obvious but....
    Turn WiFi on on the phone while standing near the WiFi router. then, if your router is in the list of WiFi SSIDs found by the phone, select yours and enter your WPA2 PSK password (You *DO* have a password, right?) then, barring an update from Sony which breaks WiFi on the phone, or an actual fault on the phone, you should be good to go.

    Another thought: Can you connect to your WiFi with another phone/tablet and/or can your Xperia U connect to another WiFi SSID OK?

    A good tool for assessing WiFi signal strength and which channels are in use id InSSIDer, it's a well-respected wireless admin tool. And free!
