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 etc. other wise i got 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; not the correct one like etc. So how can i repair or set static ip address with this phone.

Please help.

Thanks in Advance

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, try
  5. Enter your router's IP as Gateway (usually or etc.)
  6. Enter as the netmask.

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

  • Perfect! You are a star :) I've been trying several ways of connecting to Wi-fi using tips but yours actually worked!
