Hi there,

To be able to find out the MAC address of your Samsung Galaxy phone, please do the steps below:

1. Press the Menu button, under the display on the left hand side.
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.

SOURCE: Unable to Connect to WI-FI with my Samsung Galaxy

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.

Dear Meghna you have not mentioned the wifi router make and moel
no problem
for this you have to go to your router web admin to add your device as WPS client this will solve the problem
for that all the models are differently configured so you have to try playing with the settings yourself, if you jumble up the settings of you wifi router there is a reset switch in all the routers that restors your router to factory settings.
if you find my information useful dont forget to vote me with the thumbsup thankyou and take care Gagan Gupta

Galaxy S6 wifi issue


First, try restarting the Galaxy S6. To do that, hold the power button on the right side of the phone until prompted. Hold it down again to turn the Galaxy S6 back on. It's a simple process but it has been known to dislodge Wi-Fi issues
If that doesn't work, Galaxy S6 users will want to try rebooting the local router if that hasn't been done in awhile. We recommend unplugging the router for a good 30 seconds and then plugging it back in. Users can do the same for the modem as well. Galaxy S6 users might also consider updating the routers firmware. This process will be different depending on make and model. If those simple fixes don't work, it's time to head into the Galaxy S6's settings.
If the Galaxy S6 isn't getting a solid connection, it's time to force the device to forget the Wi-Fi network in question. To do that, head to the desired connection in Settings. On the Galaxy S6, this can be found in the Connections portion of Settings. Once there, select Wi-Fi. Tap on the desired network and select the Forgetoption. Users will then need to reconnect to the Wi-Fi network. Make sure the password is readily available or the device will be locked out.
If that doesn't work, head into Wi-Fi, tap More in the top right corner, and select Advanced. Ensure thatAlways allow scanning is turned on. You'll also want to make sure that Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep is set toAlways.

I bought a Samsung GALAXY Tab 4 7.0 tablet several weeks ago and it has worked beautifully until this week. It will no lomger access the internet or even attempt to scan for internet access. How can I


Have you tried turning it off, letting it sit for a minute or so, and then turning it back on? You need to turn your tablet/phone off and reboot periodically or it "forgets" how to do things - just like a computer, because that is what it is. Another thing you can check for (under Settings) is, have you accidentally turned off the Wi-Fi button? Or have you accidentally put the tablet in Airplane Mode (also under Settings)? Either of those two things will make your tablet unable to search and connect to available wi-fi networks. Hope that helps.

How do I connect my Samsung Galaxy to BT broadband?


Are you trying to connect via wi-fi or via bluetooth? Typical hotspots are wi-fi, and that can be as easy as turning on wi-fi (in Settings, Wi-fi - see manual or quick setup brochure) then waiting for it to find an active hotspot and plugging in any necessary password. Bluetooth is much less common. Post more info and I'll try to help more.

Galaxy samsung phone. He can't find wi-fi


He should read the manaul or call his cell phone provider's tech support.
If he still can't find wi-fi the wi-fi is turned off or hidden which can be corrected by the person who manages the wi-fi acces point.
I hope this helps him.
