    Hi Michelle Welcome to Android Central, were you rooted before updating? have you tried simply rebooting? try toggling airplane mode on then off and attempt to turn wifi on again?

    I didn't root my phone. I already try rebooting, airplane mode and factory data reset.

    Ok I don't know if this will help but what do you have to loose, but try rebooting your router.

    Have you tried clearing your cache in recovery? Sometimes old cache gets in the way of the update?

    Here is a guide: [Guide] Rebooting into Recovery Mode for the Galaxy S2, S3, and Tab2.

    OH this could make a difference, are you sure the file was for your model and carrier GS3? where did you get the file from? if the package was not meant for your device this could mess up your radios.

    You just need to update the phone through Kies samsung software. Because it is an official software to update your samsung device.
