    home Wifi not working

    5 hours later, still no web access!!! I set up wifi for my home, all connected, wired computer works but I cannot use any apps on the Droid3 that uses internet access. I AM connected to my home wifi on the phone. I've deleted & restored wifi, same.
    Works OK on 3G but when I go on my wifi it does say it's connected to my wifi but NOOOO none of the web apps work.
    Please reply in simple terms I am not a tech or even close to one.
    I'm ready to call Geek Squad but I feel it's something simple

    Start with the basics:
    close all apps and turn wifi off on your phone
    Restart phone while you are at it.

    Restart router and try again. (unplug from wall and plug it back in after 20 seconds)
    give it a minute after re-connecting it

    Make sure your internet connection is working with another computer just in case.

    Hope it helps or that you got it figured out.

    Yeah at least restart your router. I've had similar problems before

    did you just buy your droid? if so factroy reset then under google account sign in, uncheck restore wifi settings, then just add them manually its a bug in android 2.3.4 . EDIT also restart your router first as mentioned.

    You may have something interfering with your wifi signal. I have a Samsung wireless surround sound system that interferes with my wifi, both my laptop and my phone will not work on WiFi in that room. They show connected, with strong signal, but there is no access to the Internet.
    This drove me crazy until I figured it out.
    I believe wireless home phones can also interfere, and possibly microwaves. My microwave screws up my bluetooth while I am using it if I am in the kitchen.

    Anyone else having this problem? I've got a D1, running CM7.1.0 or something like that. I've tried restarting the router (we actually have our entire wireless setup on a power strip so we don't have to unplug everything, we just flip a switch) and I've restarted my phone and toggled wifi, but nothing seems to work. I've noticed that on CM7.1.0 that there's an internet connection indicator, when the Wifi/3G and signal bars are white, you have no internet, and when they're green, you have internet. I have wifi, but the wifi and signal bars are white. To answer anybody's question about this, yes, I do have internet on my computers. That's where I'm at right now. But the school I go to, they have wifi routers in every pod for teacher and student access, and I'm connected to the wifi there and I get internet there. My entire family has a smartphone (except for my sister with an iCrap 4) and they all get internet from their phones. I have no clue what I'm doing, and I can't mess around with the router settings a whole lot. My father is paranoid about his wifi, and has a 26 character password on the wifi, and it needs 2-step confirmation. I'm not even going to bother with messing with the Wi-Fi settings.

    Stats:
    Motorola Droid 1 (rooted)
    Router Security: WEP
    Phone's regulatory Domain: 11 channels
    Static IP: OFF
    Android 2.3.7 (CM7.1.0)
    Build #: GWK74 (Former FRG83G/D)
    School's Wifi: 802.1x EAP
    I can't give you very much details about the home router, don't know much it.

    I'm having a similar problem with my OG Droid with CM7.1. It connects to the wifi but when I download from the market the wifi bars go white and the download stops. Sometimes it completely disconnects and the bars disappear. Once in a while it works for a short period of time. One thing I did that helped at first was to turn off wifi sleeping in advanced wifi settings.

    Everyone is overlooking some very basic troubleshooting on this one. If the phone states you are indeed connected, you need to verify this by finding the ip address you are getting. You can do this by going into the list of wireless networks on your phone, and then touch the network it states you are connected to. This will give you some basic connection info. Your IP address should, more than likely, read 192.168.x.x. If you see 169.254.x.x as your IP address you are not connected to your wireless network. (The x's in my examples represent numbers between 0 and 254.) The encryption settings are more than likely wrong IE: WEP or WPA key was not entered correctly. Additionally, mac authentication may be enabled on the router. Judging by your initial description of the issue, I doubt this is the case. My suggestion is to first forget the network by long pressing on the network name, then rebooting your router, and trying to connect to the network again. Also, are there other wireless devices that work on this router?

    The tips in the previouse post are a great starter but my device does connect intermitantly - it just won't hold the connection very long. I do have several other devices on the network (I've even tried shutting the others off).

    Are there no other cm7 settings that could be at play here?

    What brand/model router do you have? When I first setup my Linksys we had very spotty WiFi for a few days. The connection would drop. We could connect but not surf. General browsing issues. I assigned the open DNS in the Linksys and so far have had no problems out of our connection.
