My phone wifi can connect to the internet hot spot (I don't have a router yet at home) but will never download anything. I have a laptop with the same wireless installed but even at home this laptop can connect to someone's connection and surf the net without any problem. I wonder how to set the phone to surf the internet too.
I don't want to use Netmedia way or GPRS. i just want to use WiFi

You may need to upgrade the htc wizard to use 102.11g networks.
You can do this yourself if you follow these steps.
Google a program called total commander. download and install it on your phone.
Now open total commander. Listed on the very top of the folders list will be \\
-Click on \\
-then click registry (you are now in the devices registry, be careful not to change other things)
- select hklm (this stands for Hkey local machine)
you need to go to this location
(so you would choose comm, then scroll down to tnetwln1, then select that and scroll down to parms and select parms)
then assign the follow changes to the keys listed in PARMS...
Assign a value of 1 to dot11SupportedRateMask
Assign a value of 8 to dot11SupportedRateMaskG
Perform a soft reset (do this by holding the power button for roughly 6 seconds, until a box comes up asking you if you want to shut off the device. Turn it off, then turn it back on and the changes will go into effect)
Then simply try to log on your router

The short answer is NO. You need a device capable of accessing the internet, so a smart phone, laptop, tablet, etc is required. You also need to have a device that can connect via a hot spot, so must have inbuilt wifi, or a sim card to access mobile data.
Are you trying to just connect to wifi to access a local network or are you trying to access the internet? If you just want to connect to a local network, maybe to access other devices on the network, you would need a router broadcasting the network that all the devices connect to. If you are only trying to get access to the internet, consider purchasing a hot spot device. It will provide cellular type service and will broadcast a wifi signal that you can connect your tablet or other devices to for internet access. Hot spots will cost you a monthly fee for the service and you will have to purchase the device itself. Another possibility is to use your cell phone as a hot spot and tether the tablet to it. Just remember whatever data you use on your tablet will be charged to your data plan on your cell phone. On my nexus 5x phone, it's fairly easy to turn on (settings, under wireless and networks select more, select tethering and portable hotspot, turn on portable wifi hotspot, set a password if you want to). Once turned on, the phone will broadcast a signal that you can connect other devices to for internet access. Some cellular providers don't allow tethering. If that is the case with yours there are some apps that will still allow you to set up tethering such as AndroidTethering or Easy Tether. In the past, I've had some trouble connecting wirelessly using the apps and found that using USB tether options worked better for me.
I'm not sure what do you mean by "your rj45". If it's a model of a router, maybe you mean that you can't get connected you smartphone to the router?
Are you sure SETTING of your phone is activated?
With setting activated, take your phone to a hotspot - site where you have free Internet connection.
If still can't connect it, probably the WiFi adapter circuit (well, anything like that) of your cell phone is failing. an you shouls check it with an authorized repair service.
Ok, that's my idea. Actually you can input a google search for
SMARTPHONE WON'T CONNECT TO INTERNET and you'll get sume return like these, to make an idea about issue
You would need to refer to your Belkin's instruction manual for how to set up WiFi on it. The password for any WiFi hot spot is unique to that hot spot so there is no general 'guest' password per se - it depends on how you setup the WiFi router.
WiFi routers also have a web-based interface where you can open a browser from a connected PC and manage the device. Again, the device's instruction manual will tell you how to do this.
If the router was supplied by your internet service provider you should be able to call them for help.
First you need a WiFi wireless card or an USB WiFi adapter. This will allow you to connect to a free WiFi hot spot location such as MacDonalds, Starbucks etc. If you want to setup your own wireless network at home the you need a wireless router and then configure the wireless card/adapter in your computer with the router's wireless settings.
SETTING UP A BROADBAND CONNECTION First you need to decide what type of broadband andInternet service you require and these are - 1. DSL that uses your existing telephone line. 2. Cable that uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service. 3. A wireless 3G network which uses the mobile/cell phone network and can beseparate or combine with your cell phone account Note - Combined services generally offer discount pricing and may include amodem/wireless router.
If you use a wireless router with the DSL or Cable Internet service and yourlaptop has a wireless card then you can also connect to the Internet at WiFihot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc. If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access theInternet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to checkthe service coverage area where you need Internet service. Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to checkwith the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and thecost of the various plans. Note the download limits and the associated additional costs if you exceed themonthly download limits. Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider,their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installationCD.
The question seems incomplete or not clear but If you are trying to access a secured internet connection at your home or cafe through wifi connectivity, it will ask for the secured password or security key. If it is your home connection ask the person who set the internet connection, if is at a cafe, wifi spot ask the service provider. Hope i understand your question rightly.
I had a smartphone called O2 XDAIIS and the same thing occured. The problem is the Wifi that it is connected to is not allowing you to go on to the internet. Or the wifi router is not suitable for your smartphone. At least there are settings that diabled you from the internet.
1. Check your smartphone settings
2. Check you router settings
Hope this helps!
