Samsung Phone Wifi problem or Obtaining IP Address porblem


Samsung galaxy phone's wireless drivers are not stable, I too have face problems on my Ace Plus.
Please reload drivers by using the first method mentioned below

Its not winhotspot bug.

If you samsung phone has problem of connecting and disconnecting.
one of these should work ( I prefer 1st option).
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                           Method 1
Dial *#*#526#*#* to run wlan test.
you should see following screen , 

to exit select back button on phone.
If it doesn’t work you may need to restart your phone try dialing it once gain.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                        Method 2
check IP allocated in clients tab


Note down the Ip. (ex :192.168.37.77)
Now got to your mobile wireless ->advance settings.



now select static IP provide same IP.

Enter gateways as 192.168.37.1 (Just take your mobile IP and replace the last digit to 1 )
 eg : if your mobile IP is XXX.YYY.AAA.ZZZ  your Gateway should be XXX.YYY.AAA.1
Use mask as 255.255.255.0

and for DNS use google DNS
DNS1 as 4.4.4.4 and
DNS2 as 8.8.4.4

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                         Method 3
 There are few apps on appstore which claims to rectify the problem , I have not tried it , if you check it drop a comment and let me know.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------









                              My test results

You can see earlier i had serious timeout problem when i used to ping.
after setting static IP and reloading drivers (using method 1)and switching off WiFi and switching on WiFi on mobile two three times resolved my problem.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Some useful tip.
If you have WiFi connection problem in android use my first method and go to advance option


and select Rx test by selecting 2.4Ghz channel and select any channel 9 or 10 or 11 ...16


and click start and after few seconds click stop you will see some packets sent and received..

now come back and reset WiFi and it should solve most of Samsung WiFi problems

Thanks

  1. Hi, I can't get Nexus 7 to connect.
    In windows 7 it worked ok, but in woindows 8 it does not. After several attempts to connect and waits for a long time ar "obtaining IP address" and "authenticating", finally nexus shows message "Avoided poor internet connection".
    Thing to keep in mind is that I am connected to optical broadband internet with 200 megabit download.
    Nothing helped, nosafe mode, no network repair, nothing. Any fix for windows 8 + nexus 7 combination?

    1. Hi ,
      Sorry for late reply.
      I have nexus 7 , I am able to connect from windows 7 and windows 8 also,
      Please click on safe mode and try.

      Please let me is it windows 8 pro / home / etc...
      Because some do not have Virtual WiFi drivers by default installed in it. I guess you have to upgrade.

      Thanks
