Android Enthusiasts Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for enthusiasts and power users of the Android operating system. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Another user asked a question that covers the same grounds as my issue, but it has no answers and very few details about what was tried.

My router is an DVG-G5402SP using the 802.11g standard and the security type WPA/WPA2 PSK.

D-Link DVG-G5402SP

When I try to connect the Wi-Fi in my phone both manually and auto, it presents a message mentioning out of range, even though I'm sitting right beside the router.

I really did a lot of changes such as changing the ssid of my router and the security type but nothing seem to work.

I'm able to connect to others Wi-Fi available on my area, just can't connect to my home Wi-Fi.


My question is:
How can I deal with this situation as to successfully connect to my home Wi-Fi?

Try using a different channel. –  Chinmay Kanchi Oct 21 '12 at 5:35

Its not easy to know, but:

2 posibilities:

  • Check the IP config is correct.
  • DHCP is properly configured, if needed.
  • If you cant connect, try to change the security of your wifi...
  • check if the MAC access is enabled.

Good luck!

This is a quite old D-Link WiFi router.

It likely needs to be either replaced or a firmware update.


It may need to be re-configured to use different channels, to be compatible with the Samsung Galaxy Ace.
