    Hello,

    While I really enjoy my Galaxy Nexus, I am stumped trying to solve my connectivity issue. Here's the problem:

    • Using the WiFi my GN connects to both a WEP and WPA/WPA2 routers at my father in laws.
    • The strength seems to fluctuate using both (WEP & WPA/WPA2).
    • The settings show that the GN is connected, but in both cases when I open up different webpages I get no connection.
    • No connection using Google Chrome, Google, Firefox or Opera

    ***Wifi bars are gray...active

    NOTE: I can access all apps, browsers work, email etc. using my data 3/4G)

    My gmail and yahoo mail also (as you would expect) not update.

    The signal shows that it is connected, but why I have no Internet access I have no idea.

    My GN has been excellent connecting to free access points for months now. This issue is completely new as of Thursday evening.

    Attempts to Resolve

    • Tried to access open Wifi spots - no success
    • Turned off avast antivirus
    • Removed the battery
    • Router rebooted

    Using data (3/4G)*I can access all programs

    In advance, thank you for your help.

    I have this happen in my den. My wireless surround sound system interferes with the signal. The phone/laptop shows connected, but it can't transfer data.

    I have tried

    Yes, I tried to see if it was the signal and stood next to the router where there would be no interruptions, but without success. My s
    ister-in-laws iphone 3 works on the same router, so I know that it isn't my father-in-laws router, nor mine when we checked my router last night.

    Hi,

    The anlayzer confirmed that my router has a very stong signal, and my phone is picking up the signal.

    Here are some technical details to assist in the diagnosis of my Wifi - Internet connection problems.

    I am rooted using GNexus-root-package-FYA with Superuser pack.
    ROM/Kernal combo - 3.0.8-gaaa2611 android-build@apa28 #1

    Other possible important information

    Android version - 4.0.2
    Build # - ICL53F.I9250OUGLA4
    Mobile network type - UMTS:3
    Signal Strength - -103 dBm 5asu
