2. A menu panel appears onscreen. Press Settings.
3. The phone's Settings menu appears. Press Wireless Controls.
4. From the Wi-Fi Controls Menu, press Wi-Fi Settings.
5. Press the Menu button (to the left under the display).
6. A menu pops up onscreen. Press Advanced.
7. The 12-character MAC address is listed in this menu.
There you go, you just have to add the MAC address where required in the appropriate place in the Wi-Fi router's configuration set up.
Please let me know if this helps you. Thank you for using FixYa.

I just had this same problem - I suspect it may have been a new app I installed that changed some settings.
I fixed mine by going into Settings>Mobile Network settings, then tick "Use packet data". Worth a try.

Wi-fi has been known to eat up the battery life on ALL devices it's on.
That's just the way it functions.
If you really want to save battery on your phone, disable wireless, bluetooth and 4G connections you may have, dim the screen to it's lowest setting and change the display timeout to a very low time.

If you want to try a simple solution, Go to Settings, Wireless and Networks, then Turn on "Airplane Mode" wait until you see an airplane on the top status bar of your phone... then Turn OFF "Airplane mode"
If that doesn't work, and you want to reset your phone, take it to the place you bought it or any place that is on your carrier.
