No data over WPA2 WiFi

I cant use the internet over my WPA2 secured WiFi network. I thought it was a problem with the phone, so I called apple. They took me through some troubleshooting to no avail. I took it in to the genius bar (per applecare's suggestion) Unfortuanately when I went in, it connected just fine to their network, and would open webpages. Their network is, of course, unsecure. Just to clarify, I can connect to my network, and even get into the settings of my router, but when I try to load a webpage, I get something to the effect of cant find server

Re: No data over WPA2 WiFi

A few things to try if havent all ready. Make sure your other wifi devices can connect to internet in this network. Toggle airplane mode 15 seconds. go to Settings -> General -> Reset -> Reset All Settings. In wifi settings join other network and manually enter SSID and wpa2 password, rather than trying to connect automatically. Turn ask to join networks off if you have to. Make sure the Wifi symbol is next to AT&T on top of phone. Open safari. If you are able to connect to router but not internet in safari. Check your Dns settings on iphone, if iphone is not resolving dns, make sure your router is configured properly.

How to get internet from my mobile?

I will assume you have a data plan already and are using an Android phone (since you didn't indicate anything). You can either subscribe a plan from your carrier that will allow your phone to act as a modem to tether to a computer to give your phones internet access to it - or enable your phone to act as a mobile hotspot to provide wifi access to other wifi enabled devices - if your phone has the hardware that supports this.

You may be able to use an application called FoxFi. It is available in the Google Store for free for the first gigabyte or so, then you will need to buy it ONCE, for less than $10 - as opposed to subscribing for $10 - $20 or more / month. You will have unlimited use of the program with no restrictions on the amount of data it transfers.

Regardless of which way you decide to go (subscription od FoxFi), your carrier's data meter will be running. If your data plan allows for 2GB of data / month, you will pay extra for usage that exceeds this amount - again - this is regardless of whether you're using FoxFi or have a subscription to share the data coming into the phone.

If you can and do create a mobile wifi hotspot on your phone, make sure that you have secured your network with WPA or WPA2 security encryption to prevent unauthorized access to your connected devices and data stream. It is too easy for people to monitor your data stream and pluck usernames, passwords and account information from an unsecured hotspot.

I hope this helps & good luck!

How come i cant get somethings on the internet on my phone?

Hi there,
It's important to understand how you can have data connection to your phone so as to access internet e.t.c.

1. Access through the Network:
Mobile Providers (Vodafone, e.t.c.) provide data access to the users on request (or by default in some cases). This data access is through the NETWORK of the mobile operator and uses 2G, 3G, GPRS, EDGE protocols to access the network.
2. Access through WiFi or WAN:
A smartphone can access internet using the WiFi or WAN protocol (wireless lan). In order to connect to the WiFi network you need capability from your phone and also to find an Access Point of Wifi (AP) to connect to. WiFi networks are FREE or PAID. You can find free networks usually in central squares, caffee's e.t.c. Also, some providers (Vodafone, e.t.c.) provide WiFi APs and you can use prepaid cards or fixed contracts in order to access them.

SGH G600
Unfortunately your phone DOES NOT support the WiFi protocol, so you can only access internet through the 1st option.
In order to do that, we need that your operator allows the DATA traffic for you and we also need to setup your phone in order to accept/send DATA.

How to do it.
1. Mobile operator settings: Pls call your mobile operator and ask them if your number has DATA allowed (DATA plan, or DATA connectivity). If so, you are OK. If not, pls check the price rates (per MB or per usage time) and -if it's within your budget- ask them to activate DATA to your phone.
2. Phone settings: Your phone has the following symbols that indicate Data connection:
z+1hzaqrlnqwwvwdfr1lzkykn1b8bkb4taelpwbtemaaaaaelftksuqmcc GPRS signal

In order to setup the Data connection there are the following configuration options in your phone:
1. Menu -> Setup Wizard. Setup wizard can setup your phone for various tasks. Try it.
2. Menu -> Browser Settings. You can select the connection profile to be used for DATA.
take into account that in order to setup a DATA connection you need to setup the AP of the GPRS/EDGE as well (usually something like

...BUT the easiest solution your you is to call your provider, give your number and phone model/type and ask them to send you an automated message that has all the needed settings for your phone so as to have access to DATA.

You click on the message send and all needed settings are OK.
You can now access internet!

If above solution was helpful, pls rate it.

If you haven't configured your phone to access the internet yet, and you want to do it through your network carrier's data plan, bear in mind their APN settings. Contact they, in case you don't know such data. Then, go to 'Menu > Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile networks > Access Point names'. Once there, press 'Menu > New APN', and fill in a 'Name' for it, and, at least, your carrier's data under 'APN', 'Username' and 'Password'. Then, press 'Menu > Save'. Press the back button as many times as required for you to reach the home screen you were in, prior you started making these changes.

On the other hand, if you want to access the internet through wifi (e.g. your home's wireless network, or an internet cafe), go to 'Menu > Settings > Wireless & networks' and tick the 'Wi-Fi' checkbox, in order to turn your phone's wifi radio on. Then, tap 'Wi-Fi settings', and, if the network you want to connect your phone to doesn't appear on the available networks list (e.g. a hidden network), tap 'Add Wi-Fi' network' and fill in 'Network SSID', select the security method, and fill in the password, if needed. When you finish, tap 'Save'. You can also specify how your phone will use its wifi radio. Tap 'Menu > Advanced > 'Wi-Fi sleep policy'. Again, press the back button as many times as required to return to the home screen.
Hope it works for you.

Anyway, please, let me know if I can help you any further.
