Wi-Fi in my Android phone stopped working.

I own an original Android 1 (stock) that is running in 2.2. I have searched everywhere and can’t find another phone doing what mine is doing. But the problem now is my WiFi will not turn on at all. I tried to manually turn it on but all I can get is an error message under the WiFi screen.

I have done several soft resets (pulled battery) and three hard resets but still no luck. I started in safe mode but I get the same results. The WiFi screen under wireless & networks says error and will not start WiFi.

I have tried to start with widget, manually from settings/wireless & networks and still won’t turn on. I called Verizon tech support and checked their Website but still no luck.

I loaded WiFi analyzer from the market but it doesn’t fix it too. It just says WiFi off please turn on but it will not turn on. Please let me know if you have any ideas.

Thank you!!

I have the same problem instead I own a Chinese droid which is very defective and have a lot of problems. 

The forums said that if you cant solve your WiFi, reinstall the firmware. Mine I wait for Uberoid firmware to be released.

The forums Techknow can solve all your problems. But there is an app that can fix your WiFi, follow this Link.

As I said the last resort is reinstalling your firmware because install mine and it work.

Hi,

You tried almost everything and it seems that there is a hardware error in your cell phone due to which WiFi is not operational. Just try one thing before solving the hardware issue. Reinstall the software of your mobile and upgrade it if possible to the latest compatible version. If no luck then please you need to visit the manufacturer outlet or franchise. It will definitely solve your problem.

Regards,

The term “soft reset” simply means restarting your phone. You can do it like this: turn off your phone, remove the battery for about 10 to 20 seconds, reinstall the battery, and then turn on the phone. You can also skip removing the battery since there are phones with non-removable batteries. The term “hard reset” literally means doing a factory reset.

If your phone is running on Android 2.2 Froyo, go to “Settings,” “Privacy Settings,” and then select “Factory data reset.” This will factory reset your Smartphone. Before doing this, backup all your data and remove your microSD card if you have one inserted. This is the best option if your Smartphone is not functioning correctly just like the problem with your phone’s Wi-Fi that cannot be turned on.

You can try to factory reset your phone to re-flash your phone and restore its firmware back to when you first bought it. If this method didn’t work, that means your phone’s Wi-Fi is damaged. In this case, you should bring it to a service center for proper servicing.
