Nexus One, cleared internal user storage to near-factory settings using the boot menu. My computer is connected to wifi, and I have a USB tether to my phone.

But when I click on "Connect to wifi" -- even in the virgin "user setup" menu -- No networks are found, and the device becomes unbearably slow.

The device had functioned properly for 1.5 years ... until yesterday.

I don't know whether the problem is hardware or software. If it is in software, I would like to fix it... but I don't have wifi, and I don't have 3G.

What are the steps to diagnose this problem?

If it is a software problem, what are the steps to fix it?

  1. Tap the Menu button on your handset.
  2. Tap Settings.
  3. Tap Wireless and Networks.
  4. Tap Wi-Fi settings.
  5. Tap the Menu button again.
  6. Tap Advanced ( Figure B ).
  7. Tap the Proxy setting and make sure your Android device is not set up for a Proxy. (Unless the Wi-Fi network you are on requires a Proxy, this setting will get in the way of your device's access to the computer) If you tap on Proxy and see an IP address or domain, delete it.

  • After rebooting, I tried accessing this menu again, and there were no proxy settings, just settings for MAC address, IP address, and static IP address. The MAC and IP address fields are set to "Cannot use", and the static IP is not in use. In order to use these settings, wifi must be turned on... but as soon as I turn wifi on, the device becomes too slow to access this menu. I'll try it once, then I will have to reboot to speed up the device again. – user2691448 Aug 17 '13 at 8:54
