Hi,

I have bought Galaxy S2 just two months back. My wifi was working fine until one day it stopped working. When I switch on my wifi, it just scan for the network and then gets off. My other devices are working fine with the router. The same problem exists even after doing a factory setting for the phone and reseting the wifi router at my home.

There are few things worth noticing about the problem:
1) My PC is detecting so many wireless networks around here but my phone wifi detects none because it seems to me that the wifi is not even getting started in my phone ... no wifi notification symbol.
2) On starting other wifi related setting like "wifi direct", my phone hangs and it shows a dialogue to force close it.

Please suggest some solution for the problem.
Thanks.

I recommend to flash the latest stock ROM for your region.
You can find many official firmwares in Intratech's thread => http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1075278.
Please read the first post carefully.

After flashing the ROM, you should do a hard rest (by dialing *2767*3855# in your phone).

Hope this will help!
