My Samsung Galaxy Ace has problems with its Wi-fi connection. It's very weird because it shows that its connected to a network but i still cannot connect to the internet. Can someone please help me out with this? thanks a lot!

  • Does it happen for all Wi-Fi hotspots? What Android version are you using? – geffchang Jan 16 '14 at 14:48
  • First thing coming to my mind: could it be you're connected to a "captive portal", like it's often used in hotels? That is, you can connect to the network without a passphrase, but if you fire up your web browser you get redirected to a login page first. Until you authenticated there, no packages are routed to the internet. Could that be the cause? – Izzy Jan 16 '14 at 15:39
