    Question Can't Connect to Internet on Good WiFi Connection

    I am unable to connect to the internet on my home wifi connection on my GS3. I started experiencing issues this morning when I swapped batteries (non-stock to stock). I have tried resetting the router, turning the phone off and back on, switching the batteries, and forgetting the account password and re-entering it, all of which were unsuccessful. I know the WiFi connection is good because I am using it on my computer (as I type this) and it is working well on my iPod touch as well. Any help would be appreciated, and if you need more info on my end just ask!

    Try deleting that WiFi network setup completely from your phone and recreating it.

    Do you just mean deleting the network from the list on my phone and then re-adding it? If so, I have already tried that.

    Yes, that's what I meant.

    I don't know why pulling the battery would have changed anything, but...

    Are you using access control on the router, to limit access to certain MAC addresses? Any chance you inadvertently set WiFi time (in advanced settings in the WiFi app? I'm kind of grasping at straws here.

    Wifi timer is off

    Nothing changed on the router that I know of that made it give me issues.

    Problem seems to have fixed itself. When I woke up this morning, I had to reset the router to use the internet on my computer, and now the wifi is working on my phone.

    Could have been that. I've been round and round with my internet provider with issues for the past month.

    Make sure no VPN or other Proxy program is running in the background.

    The problem obviously isn't with your phone as it is connecting to other routers.
    If you're using WPA/WPA2 security, check that the router is set to use AES encyption. I saw similar behaviour using TKIP with my Desire Z, and switching encryption protocol sorted it out.
