Default Unable to Browse the Internet on Wi-Fi

Hi All,

I have a Samsung Galaxy GT-I9100 bought in India in June. I have had wi-fi issues right from the start. The basic problem I face is:
- If I connect to a Wi-Fi network (I have tried a lot of "home" and public networks in malls, coffee shops, etc), I am able to connect - which means, my device obtains an IP address and shows connected. The strength is generally good.
- However, I am unable to open anything related to the Net - gmail, gtalk, webpages, market, FB. The application shows that there is no network connection.

I tried using wi-fi fixer (by Zanshin-g1). But when wi-fixer is running, the device does not even obtain an IP and it just keeps resetting the wi-fi.

I was hoping the issue would be fixed with an OS update. However, it is persisting even after the XWKL1 update in India.

I want to check whether there is anything else that can be done. The only other option left for me seems to be to ask for a replacement within my warranty duration; however that is a pain here and I do not wish to take that route unless forced to.

Please help and advise.

Thanks,
Vinod

Dont know if it will help but I found this


Note – Make sure you backup all your application and data before hard reset your SGS2 (if you still can). Just use Samsung Kies to do the backup. How to hard reset Samsung Galaxy S2? There are 3 ways to do so

Performing a factory data reset via settings

1.Go to Settings.
2.Select Privacy.
3.Click on Factory data reset.
4.Check Format USB storage if needed only.
5.Click on Reset phone.
6.Finally, select Erase everything.
Performing a factory data reset using phone buttons

1.Turn off SGS2.
2.Press and hold down Volume Up + Home + Power buttons at the same time.
3.Release all buttons when you see SGS2 Logo.
4.Android system recovery will be loaded then.
5.Select wipe data/factory reset. (Volume buttons to go up or down, select with Home button)
6.Select Yes — delete all user data.
7.Finally, select reboot system now.
Performing a factory data reset using dialpad

1.Warning ~ no turning back after key in.
2.Bring up dialpad.
3.Key in *2767*3855#
4.Finally, SGS2 will be rebooted and factory data reset.
That’s all. Enjoy your new fresh Samsung Galaxy S II…
