    Default WIFI White Bars and Connected but Internet Does Not Work Properly

    I have an LG Optimus Elite and when I first set the phone up with WIFI, the bars were green and everything worked, but then I powered the phone off and the bars turned white and my WIFI status says that I'm connected but nothing (except the browser, Skype and sometimes Youtube) works--they all mostly say "authentication required" or "not connected." I have multiple laptops, have had two iPod Touch devices, and friends' devices work just fine on my internet, but this one won't--the time/date isn't even correct.

    I've rebooted the phone about 4 times and each doing different things, like signing in to Youtube with Google account, syncing my Google account, and just trying different things with the WIFI (airplane mode, turning off sleep), and I've restarted my modem and router. I logged in at a restaurant and the time was correct, but I wasn't able to check more than that. I've been searching for a fix for a few days now and nothing has worked at home.

    I don't have the phone plan connected so there's nothing that I can do with the 3G connection. It's just really frustrating because I bought two of these phones (one for myself, and one for my girlfriend) and only one phone works, even though we've checked to see if all our settings were exactly the same--which they are. If anyone can help, I'd really appreciate it.

    Edit: Each time I power the phone off the WIFI bars turn white and the internet doesn't work good (like I wrote above). For the amount of time that there is internet (after factory reset) the time is wrong. I forgot to mention this.

    Edit 2: I cleared the Google Services Framework data and, after doing that, the WIFI works until I power the phone off and on again. I'll add more information as I try more things.

    Welcome to Android Central! If you haven't done so already, review this guide: http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...-problems.html

    Are you able to connect to everything when using a different wifi network (like one at a local cafe or library)? Is it limited only to your home wifi?

    I cleared data on Google Services Framework and then force stopped the program and then powered the phone off and on and it worked. It hasn't stopped working (haven't powered it off yet), but I'll update it again if it does.

    Same exact problem

    I can connect to my belkin routers wifi perfectly, but CERTAIN apps dont work for instance:
    facebook
    youtube
    play store

    Whatsapp works, gmail SOMETIMES works and syncs but hardly ever.. surfing with chrome works 100%, i can even get to youtube/playstore/facebook

    Everything works on 3g data...

    This leads me to believe my belkin is screwed! or a setting somewhere is wrong, or something! Please help me!
    I am still using the 4.2.2 version...

    I have tried using a different wifi network and everything works just fine on other peoples wifi's... this belkin is lame.. also ive noticed in other forum posts, alot of the problems like this occur with belkins!


    please help me someone.

    Im using a stock OS that came with the phone, so im behind, and ive noticed that the wifi optimization option doesnt exist on my version, but thats the only thing in that post that could possibly be my problem.. but at the same time ive used other wifis with success, its only my belkin router at home that doesnt allow me to use facebook, gmail,youtube,store apps....

    At the same time the update software feature wont work on the wifi either, so i cant even update without using 3g (which im not going to do it will cost me to much) <--- hard to explain...

    Have you tried shutting off the router for several minutes?

    UPDATE!!!! listen up...

    My routers WPA/WPA2 encryption was whack and was stopping certain apps from running!
    Ive now changed over to WEP and it works perfectly.. It seems with older crappier routers especially belkins the samsung just doesnt get along with it... so WEP... less security ... no other option!
