Question about Samsung GALAXY S4

Will not stay connected to home wifi

When I choose my home wifi to connect to it connects for about 2 seconds and then immediately switches back to 4g. Ive tried forgetting the network (which is hard to do in that 2 seconds but I have done it) but it still will not stay connected after doing that. Ive also shut down phone and taken out and reinserted the battery but still no fix. This problem seems to have started after I upgraded to kit kat.

Open your wifi on the phone and press and hold the wifi network that you want to connect to then click (modify) re-enter the security code for the wifi network again and then connect. If that does not work then the wifi signal is weak and you'll need to get closer to your router.

Another thing is to choose United States for your Wifi Region in the wifi advanced settings menu.
-- uncheck (avoid poor connections)
-- check scanning always available
-- Wifi Region Code (select United States)

I hope that helps will not stay connected to home wifi - will-not-stay-connected-home-wifi-5x01jctu1hti52f1zciidmg3-3-0.png

Connect iphone 5 to wifi


To connect your Iphone to home wifi you should go into the 'Settings' app then there should be a option where you can click on 'Wi-Fi'. If the wifi is on you should see green next to wifi. Under 'Choose a network' select your home wifi. If it is password protected it will ask you to put in your password, if not it should automatically connect.

Wireless radio switch


Usually WIFI is Disabled/OFF if you typically use a wired LAN connection, and a lot of systems only allow you to have One Or The Other on at one time, otherwise it would not know which method to send your internet and network traffic.

So, you may have to Temporarily Disable the LAN connection before you can Enable the WIFI connection.

If your dell has an antenna sticking out of the back, then you have wifi, otherwise I believe this model needs a wireless card. If you do have wifi, here's how to turn it on.

- click Start,
- choose Control Panel on the right
- If the top right says 'View by: Category'
click the down arrow on the right and choose either Large Icons
or Small Icons.
- choose Network and Sharing Center
- you will now see your wireless network if the adapter is on,
if it is not on, chick on Change Adapter Settings on top left
- two connections typically show up:
1. Local Area Connection and
2. Wireless Connection
- right click the Wireless Connection,
- choose Status

> the next window lets you Enable your wireless device, check its
Properties, or Diagnose connection issues.

Let me repeat from above:
Usually WIFI is Disabled/OFF if you typically use a wired LAN connection, and a lot of systems only allow you to have One Or The Other on at one time, otherwise it would not know which method to send your internet and network traffic.

So, you may have to Temporarily Disable the LAN connection before you can Enable the WIFI connection.

Just reverse this later if you want to go back to a wired connection on the desktop machine. I use all WIFI at home, then I connect my laptop by a cable to my router if I have an issue to solve, which is maybe once every two years.

It's easier when you are doing it than it may seem just reading this.

Hope this helps
All the best to you,
KerryHos

Will not connect to wifi


  • Touch the Apps Menu button on the Home screen.
  • Open the Settings app.
  • Choose Wireless & Networks.
  • Choose Wi-Fi Settings.
  • Ensure that Wi-Fi is on.
    When you see a green check mark next to the Wi-Fi option, Wi-Fi is on.
  • Choose a wireless network from the list.
    Available Wi-Fi networks appear at the bottom of the screen. When no wireless networks are listed, you're sort of out of luck regarding wireless access from your current location.
    Optionally, type the network password.
    Touch the Password text box to see the onscreen keyboard.
    Touch the Show Password check box so that you can see what you're typing; some of those network passwords can be long.
    Touch the Connect button.
    You should be immediately connected to the network. If not, try the password again.

    This code means, that you changed the security options of the web browser. To solve this problem, you have to create a new connection.
    1. System settings
    2. Internet
    3. Connection settings
    4. Choose the "None" button at "Connection 1" (If there is a connection, choose "Clear Settings")
    5. Let's "Search for an Access Point"
    6. Choose your own wireless internet connection (or which you use at home)
    7. Then you have to choose the security type:
    - If no security (Unlocked yellow lock), then everything is okay, choose "OK", then "Save settings", then "Yes"
    - If WEP security (Locked yellow lock), then enter your routers password for internet (WiFi password), then "OK" -> "OK" -> "Save settings" -> "Yes"
    - If WPA security (Locked silver lock), then you have to get back to "Advanced Setup", so tap the back button twice, until you get back to connections screen, choose "Advanced Setup", then choose "None" at "Connection 4" (If there isn't none, then "Clear Settings"), then "Search for an Access Point", give in your router's WPA key (WiFi password), then "OK" -> "OK" -> "Save settings" -> "Yes"

    When i go to free wifi spots, my dell latitude D800 will not open(the internet), i can access the internet just fine at home, i have internet service at home. how can i get the internet to come up when im...


    When you are home, you should hopefully have a secure wireless connection. When you are not home you willl need to change the access point so you can connect to a free wi-fi connection.

    When you want to connect to a free wi-fi connection, do this:

    Click Start, Settings, and choose Network Connections. Look at the possibilities for connection assuming your PC is within range and the wireless card picks up the signal. Choose from one of the connections - choose the fastest and best one you can find. NOTE that these connections are usually NOT secure and you should not share personal information or do any banking, credit card purchasing, etc on an unsecure connection. Chatting is ok, but still exercise caution....there are lots of bad guys out there who would love to meet you and steal your identity, banking information...or worse. Better safe than sorry.

    When you get back home, you will have to change the connection type back again to your home network so you can re-connect there.
