So I just spend 300 dollars on something that has essentially become my old phone, which I paid 35 for. My BRAND NEW Galaxy s3 from virgin mobile is trapped in this vicious cycle of "obtaining IP address", "internet connection is not stable", and no wifi at all, eating up my data.
I have noticed with certain wifi protection setups my phone will go into a never ending loop of obtaining address, connecting then disconnecting and starting over again with authenticating, obtaining address, connecting ect. Is this a common bug? My sister recently changed her wifi security type but left the password the same and now it does this.
I keep getting stuck at "obtaining ip address" even though I have good signal, correct pasword (even get a message saying "secured, saved") then after "connecting" for a while during "obtaining IP address" I get a message saying "network disabled poor connection" even though I've been connecting to the same network (automatically) for weeks now.
I have had a nightmare at work trying to use the open wi-fi supplied to customer, every time i tried to connect i got the Obtaining IP address message and it would not connect.
I tried all the usual stuff and nothing worked even though workmates could connect with no problem, after much searching i eventually found this solution having tried many of the ones that didn't work that i found using g
I got my new Samsung Note 2 on December 28th. It works fine, but when i carry it to work, i cannot connect it to the office Wifi. It keeps saying, "obtaining ip address", and then doesnt connect. IV tried rebooting the modem etc. What cud be the issue?
