    So i got my Galaxy S2 on friday...got to work today and decided im going to start messing around with it as i didnt have time the wkend..

    I can connect to the wireless, can access the net, google talk app works fine, accuweather updates etc...

    But the moment i try to access the android market it gives me a "Network error has occurred"

    But if i connect from my phones 3G then that works fine...

    any reasons as to why would be of great help....

    as its eating up my phones credit LOL...

    I also have this problem with my GS2. At first all was working well, but now I cannot update or install apps over Wifi. Another app that suffers the same problem is the Youtube app. I can search, see comments, but the videos won't play over Wifi. All is fine over 3g. Can you check the youtube app yourself ?

    Are you on orange by any chance? If soyou are probably accessing the orange market and not the android one.

    I am on Bell Canada.

    Other problems include :

    - Youtube videos only streaming on 3g
    - Can receive but not send messages in gmail.

    Really weird...my phone has been flawless for 1 month and now it's useless:mad:

    I seem to have the same problem - basically, the phone reports as being connected to my router, but I get the 'network error' message when using Markets, and other network apps (facebook, email, etc) just hang.
    I'm distincly un-impressed, having just made the jump from a Wildfire, which worked just fine (so it's not like the router has changed).
    I sit about 4 metres from the router, and have a perfectly good wifi signal to two laptops....

    Yea this is similar to a problem I'm having....

    My phone is fine on my own WiFi network at home and was fine with my brothers BT router and Mc Donalds a week or two ago. Now, even though it says it's connected to my brothers and Mc Donalds network, they're both unusable. No pages load at all yet in the settings I've got a great signal and it says it's connected.

    On a separate note though I am having a hard time updating some applications for some weird reason.
