I can't use WiFi for anything except WhatsApp on my Samsung Galaxy S3 mini.

I already turned on WiFi on my phone. But I can't do anything except WhatsApp. I can't browsing via WiFi, and can't open Play Store either. But when I use mobile data (via my Internet provider) I can do anything, except that I can't browse Play Store either.

When I use WiFi via my computer it can work, but can't work again via my phone.

The password is correct. I already check it, but nothing's work.

What should I do? Please help me!

Had exactly the same issue. Fixed it:

Set the router to automatically assign DNS. Turn off PC, Router, Android. Turn on PC, Router, Android after 15 sec.

Everything works like before now! :)

    As for Wi-Fi, in order to change DNS you don't need root nor that app. All you need is go to wifi settings, long-tap on a wifi connection>modify network>show advanced options>IP Settings, there you can put any DNS you wish :) but that couldn't be a good solution for above problem, because that error had some specific manner – Ilo Dec 12 '13 at 10:13

    Ilo: I'd say that's a great solution if the reason WhatsApp is the only app working is that it uses IP-addresses and not DNS, making the primary issue a DNS issue :) – pzkpfw Dec 12 '13 at 10:14

This worked for me 100%. Go to WiFi settings in your phone. Long tap the connected WiFi connection, select modify network settings and check if proxy is enabled which I am sure will be enabled, just switch it back to NONE, then again switch off the WiFi and switch it on again. Viola, the internet is back again.

Clean all the cache using All-In-One Toolbox, and restart your phone. It worked for me.
