Mobile internet not working - Nexus S 4G
Friday 06th of July 2012
I recently got my Nexus S hooked back up with Sprint, and since then the mobile network bars have been grey. Internet will not work, and I don't know why. The bars turn blue as if everything is connected again when I have wifi turned on and a network is active. Can still send and receive calls and texts, but anything related to internet or similar data transfer will not work.
Wifi Connected but Not Working
Wednesday 07th of March 2012
To fully explain my problem the best I can, giving a little bit of history first, I recently have returned a Galaxy Note to AT&T for the problem I am going to ask about. The same problem is occuring with the new device I picked up. When using my Galaxy Note to connect to Wifi, for the first day or two, everything works fine. After that connection to Wifi is shown but the actual internet on the device will not work. I can use apps that require data connection over wifi with no problem but the actual Web Browswer will not work. I have spoke with AT&T and Samsung about the issue with no luck. Today in about 3 hours I am going to return the deivice for another unless I could find out how to fix this. I have tested this over many different Wifi connections, including the AT&T specified connections, with the same problem occurring over and over again. When I am not connected to Wifi the Web browser on the device works fine. Any suggestions or help that anybody could think of? Already have done a factory data reset, shut phone on and off, waiting 30 seconds in between, three tim

I bought my Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray 1 month ago because it has a feature that can share its wifi to another device. I tried using it to my ipad 2, it is connected but the internet does not work at all. I had a Samsung Galaxy Ace that I use as a hotspot to my ipad it did work fine, I do not know what's the problem with my ray. Hope I could get a response.OS version of my Ray is 2.3.3Thank you!

lte not working
Thursday 24th of October 2013
Hi. I have a 16gb 4g Xperia z which is a lovely tablet but have had problems accessing the internet via lte.I have tried both Optus and telstra and find same issue.Sometimes I can connect to internet when I am in 4g zone ( not always) but if I am in a 3g zone and my signal is shown as connected to network, the tablet tells me I have no internet connection.WiFi is perfect but not lte.I have been to Sony retailer I bought it from and have nothing but praise for all the staff there. They checked and rechecked all the setups and we have done everything by the book.They are going to replace it and lent me a demo tablet to take os on holiday. Again, no probs WiFi anywhere. But no internet via my SIM cards here.Has anyone had any similar trouble because I need to be able to use internet without WiFi and if this is insolvable I may have to give up the Sony which I do not want to do.Hoping for answers.
Wifi connected but internet not working
Thursday 16th of January 2014
My phone developed a really strange problem with wifi. It connects to wifi networks but can not access the internet. The connection seems OK, the phone gets IP address but it can only ping the router! Any other ping returns "destination unreachable" error. And the really puzzling thing is that this problem does not exist on unprotected wifi networks. Eh.I have checked on several protected wifi nets, none worked, so the problem must be with the phone itself.So far I have tried the Wifi fixer app, but it could not fix this for me.Phone is HTC One S, Android 4.1.1
Signal is there but Wifi is now working in Moto G

Dear friends,I am working in an organisation which has wifi. When I login in any laptop owned by company with the given username and password, the wifi is automatically connected.When I use the same username and password in my android mobile, the wifi is connected. But it do not work. The internet browser says you are offline. Actually the wifi is connected. But may be not configured correctly. In laptop net properties the association is WPA2, data encryption is AES, authentication is EAP type Protected EAP (PEAP) Address type is DHCP. Does anyone know how to configure such network?Can anybody help me in this?
Connected to WiFi but internet not working
Tuesday 23rd of December 2014
Hey so, I have a Coolpad Quattro 4g Lite. My problem is, when I connect to my WiFi (or anyone else's) the WiFi is working but only a little bit. After a while, it still shows my wifi bar on the top right corner of the screen and says I am connected to whatever WiFi I am on but when I go on all my apps they say I am not connected. I try to get rid of this by turning the WiFI off for a minte then back on and it works,... But only for a little then goes back to before. I have tried resetting phone, factory reset, high factory reset, none of those works. Please help me because I just wanna use this phone already :/
My phone is connected to the wifi or 3G, but internet and data doesn't work.
Friday 26th of June 2015
Hello.I'm a Galaxy s3 Mini owner. When my phone is connected to the Wifi, even with strong signal, it doesn't work at all. Everything should be okay with the router, since it's working perfectly on other devices. But I can't use any apps that use internet, like Facebook, Whatsapp, Instagram and etc. Nothing connects to the internet. Sometimes it works tho. But most of the time not. The same problem happens when it's connected to the 3G(There's no 4G here). I have already tried removing sim card, turning it off, restarting, removing battery for 15 minutes, cleaning up it's memory, everything, but nothing work. Can anybody help me?
