    hi, I had been using galaxy s2 for almost one month now, two days back the wifi on my device automatically stopped working. when i turn on the wifi it scans and then automatically turns off without detecting any wifi signals. my other two notebooks are very well detecting the wifi signal.

    i have tried master resetting the phone, also updated the firmware but nothing is helping. also my phone shows ERROR sometimes under wifi and it dosent turn on.

    plz help me someone, m nt sure if it is a software or a hardware problem....plz help me out.....

    my android version is-

    version- 2..3.4
    baseband I9100XXKG1
    KERNEL 2.6.35.7-I9100XXKG1-CL349526

    thanks

    Have you tried restarting (rebooting) your wireless router?

    If you're restarted both router and handset, and have altered nothing in the way of settings in either that could have caused the problem, then it could be a hardware issue requiring service.

    Anyone have any idea what is causing this yet? My wifi was working, had the Galaxy S2 for a couple months now, and this is just now happening. Same exact symptoms... tried all sorts of router settings, restoring the phone, rebooting it... no luck.
