I just bought a Phone here yesterday running with Android ICS, the first time I used the wifi was ok, no problem. But now, the wifi is not working sometimes even I have a strong wifi connection. My PC, and my phone are on the same network. My PC is reading Full signal strength, as I am literally 5 feet from the wireless router. My phone is showing NO blue. Wifi meter is grey even if I have excellent connection, If it is blue, I can use my internet, but when it is grey I can't use my internet. I have the blue wifi around 20% of the time. What should I do?

    See also: What does it mean when the connectivity icons in the status bar go white/gray? -- though that does not explain why your Internet should be completely disabled. Only Google Services have no connection, while everything else should be fine.

  • Have you tried restarting everything (router, phone)? Are you sure your router has enough available IP address and doesn't have a QoS rule blocking access? Can you connect to any other WiFi network? Are you sure you're connecting to the correct SSID?

Exchange the phone for replacement. Most likely defective wifi card in phone.

  • That's a pretty big leap without knowing if the OP has done any basic troubleshooting.

wifi not blue means net cannot connect with google server! if u have rooted ur device just go to etc>hosts.bak using root explorer just add a '#' before the ip at the bottom line. Hope this will resolve ur issue works 99% with evry1! or try that on the first line ip!
