Android Error Fix: Fix for Wi-Fi not turning on



We all spend a lot of time on internet these days and when the smartphone wont just let you turn its wi-fi 'on', it feels like hitting with a brick. When something like this happens we all rush to Google to find a solution or some,the less techie ones, rush to a phone shop to get it fixed. But this problem is an easy-fix one and isn't that technical to solve.


So, lets see how to do it.

Step 1: Dial *#*#526#*#* into your phone's keypad. It will show a message "Driver Loading Successful . If this is the message that comes up on the screen, than wifi should work now fine. If you get "Driver Loading Unsuccessful" on the screen then you should move on to Step 2.

Step 2: Dial *#*#526#*#* again and this time click on the options button.

Step 3: Select Rx Test.

Step 4: Now select Channel >9.

Step 5: Click Start and exit.

Now wait for some time and wi-fi should now work just fine.


Alternatively, you can also try an app called WiFi fixer. It resets the Wifi related file system of the Android phone. You can download it by clicking here.


Also, for Samsung users there is a pretty neat trick that works quite effectively as well.

Step 1: Turn off the wifi and go to 'Allshare' feature of Samsung Android phones.

Step 2: When it asks you to connect to a wifi network, just connect to the one you want to.

Et voila, problem solved. It magically removes the issue but this fix only works because of the Allshare feature so its limited to only Samsung Android phones.

  1. In the App market there is an app called hotmail app. Download that and try. This works great with Apple Iphone when default settings are wrong.

  22. I fixed it.


    I have a rooted android mobile device 2.1 and wifi was not able to be enabled.
    I did the following.
    adb shell
    and then from logcat I read all the messages and found out that wpa_supplicant had a problem.
    As root in the adb shell I

    rm /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf

    and then when enabled the wifi all was ok.

    Also you may have to do as root

    chown system:wifi /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf


    Guys you can get a lot of info if you have drivers for your mobile + adb shell with the logcat...It reports there a vast ammount of information (especially if you are a linux user).

  30. I recently brought a galaxy duos GT-S7562. When I brought it, it was not getting connected to the wifi in my home. It shows the name of our network, and when I type the password, its shows saved, secured. But it does not get connected. When I open the internet, they say webpage not available and also shows a message box saying that there's something wrong in the internet setting. So we took it to the shop from where we brought it, and they said that there's nothing that they can do about it. We have to go to the Samsung's regional center. We thought of going there the next day, and to our surprise when I entered my house, automatically it got connected to our wifi. We dint do anything. But after sometime, I took it outside my house, where there is no network coverage, and when I came back, again wifi wasn't working. I tried my best, but I could not reconnect wifi to my mobile. What to do now?
