Hey all this might not be some programming problem rather a usability problem. I am new to android world. I have bought an android mobile [Samsung Galaxy Pro B7510] couple of days ago. I am trying to connect it to internet with wi-fi connection. But the problem is that normally when i connect my laptop to that router i need to repair the connection to get proper ip address like 192.168.1.2 etc. other wise i got 10.38.132.90 or rather something like this. And in that case i can't access internet. That's why i normally repair the connection on pc.

I am also using this router's wi fi with nokia E5 mobile and it gets proper ip address after 2 or 3 attemts (enabling and disabling wlan scanning)

But with android the ip address remains the invalid one i mean 10.38.132.90; not the correct one like 192.168.1.2 etc. So how can i repair or set static ip address with this phone.

Please help.

Thanks in Advance

This looks like a router misconfiguration issue than an Android problem. You will probably have more luck if you ask on Super User. –  Martin Tapankov Jun 12 '11 at 13:43

You could try to use the "static IP settings":

  1. Go to Settings -> Wireless and network -> Wi-Fi settings
  2. Press menu button, select Advanced
  3. Check Use static IP
  4. Look for your PC's IP address, and enter a similar address for IP address (e.g. if your PC's one is 192.168.1.2, try 192.168.1.3).
  5. Enter your router's IP as Gateway (usually 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.178.1 etc.)
  6. Enter 255.255.255.0 as the netmask.

It is important that the IP address isn't already used in your network.
