Connected to WiFi – No Internet

admin ajax Connected to WiFi   No Internet

If you have this problem, then I might just have the solution. It’s a weird issue, as you’d think that you can connect to the internet if your WiFi signal is at its highest and … it connects.

I came across this issue yesterday and I honestly didn’t know what the problem was. After doing several things (Restarting the phone, checking if the WiFi password is correct etc) to find what the issue could be, I gave up.  So, today I looked into it even more and came across one solution that worked.

I updated the date & time on my phone to the current date today.

For some odd reason my phone’s date & time changed to 2012 and was a couple hours behind. My phone had somehow traveled back to the past. When loading Facebook, I got connection issues. When sending messages via Line/KakaoTalk, I got connection issues. Once I changed the date to the current date, everything started working again and I was finally able to connect to the internet.

While this worked for me, it might not work for you. Either way, it’s a good solution and one you should try, should you come across this problem.
