Recently, I've upgraded my android phone Samsung galaxy ace to new firmware. But after doing this, there are problems arised related to WiFi. Before the firmware upgrade to android 2.3.5, there was no difficulty in connecting WiFi to my mobile as it automatically connects when I switch on WiFi. But the upgrade cuases to show "Obtaining IP Address" on the WiFi settings page and it never connects.
After searching about this problem on internet, I found that many other people facing the same problem. But at last I found a solution for this problem and going to share here. Here's the solution to Obtaing IP address Wifi problem on android:
The solution is to use a static IP for your WiFi connection, to do this:
- From your android device, goto Settings > Wireless and networks > WiFi Settings > Click menu button (left) and select advanced.
- You'll see an option "use static IP" under IP settings section. Enable it and enter the following parameters.
- IP address : 192.168.1.253
- Gateway: 192.168.1.1
- Netmask: 255.255.255.0
- Dns1: 126.96.36.199
