Hello, recently my phone decided it no longer wanted to connect to wifi, i did eventually fix that (restarted my router/modem) however, now i have no internet, i can access the local network fine (i've tested this by running xamp on my pc, and accessing it from my phone) but the actualy internet won't work, so i can't access google or any other website, and i just can't figure out why

now, i'm not tech illiterate at all but i just can't figure it out.

any help will be apericiated

Stock GS3 AT&T Edition (Rooted via SafeRoot method) running the latest Samsung update

Router/Modem: ARRIS TG862 (Xfinity)

Go into networks, access points... Aka APN, and change the settings. E correct settings should be in q and a or general forum... Based on what you saying.. Its my guess. Could be wrong tho.

I had a problem with my internet on my phone after a flash, WiFi worked good. Calls and texts good. But phone internet was jacked. I had to reset my APN.. Sounded kinda similar....sorry for giving you another option. If yo tried it and didn't work , just say so.

My mobile data isn't the problem though, its my wifi, i cant access my home internet, I can access the local area network fine, but no internet, my mobile data works fine though (am sending this message via mobile data right now in fact)

Edit: fixed it, my modem/routers settings were really strange and messed up
