Default Connects but doesn't surf wifi!

Hi, I have this s3 mini (SM G730W8) . I have had it for 4 months and never had any problems. But since yesterday, it connects to wifi network internet doesn't work. Chrome says you are offline after trying , apps can't connect etc.

The device works fine on LTE.
Other devices can connect to the same wifi and are working fine, even other samsung devices.

Please advise.

when your phone connects to the wifi does it obtain an ip address?

I believe so, it even shows connected to xyz network. But when I start browsing...nothing!

Oddly enough, even when I try to connect to those free wifi networks which require 'sign in' as opposed to username/password. The 'signin' page doesn't open either!

I would have reflashed stock firmware to see if it solves it, otherwise it must be some hardware failure.
