    Galaxy Y doesn't connect properly if you have spaces between your network name. Make sure your network name is one word only and then try it again.

    Simple but easy suggestion make sure that your data connection is turned on and you have not just turned on your WiFi!

    Check your APN settings.

    Default wifi configuration problem with bsnl on android mobile

    How To Fix “Obtaining IP address” error on Android mobile phone
    2013/05/02 3 Comments

    Few days back I flashed a new ROM in my Motorola Fire XT and everything gone fine except WiFi Connection. When I try to connect to my WiFi router it got struck at Obtaining Wi-Fi address and got disconnected. The process was

    Obtaining IP Address
    Disconnecting
    Scanning

    It was a strange thing for me but later I solved this problem successfully. Follow the steps given below carefully to fix that error.

    This error is due to the WiFi router couldn’t assign the IP address for Android mobile or Android Tablet. To solve it, go to settings and select Wireless and Networks. Turn on the WiFi and enter into WI-Fi settings. After that Press the Menu button on your Android select Advanced option.

    You will be carried to WiFi advanced Settings for Assigning Static IP Address, Gateway, Netmask and DNS. Pick the Static IP and assign the values given in the Screenshot.

    Fix-Obtaining-IP-address-error-in-Android-phone-tablet-200x300 IP address: 192.168.1.107 > It is not compulsory to put 107 you can put values between 0 to 255 instead of 107. Make sure there shouldn’t be any IP address conflict when you put IP address.

    Gateway : 192.168.1.1

    Netmask : 255.255.255.0

    DNS 1 : 8.8.8.8

    DNS 2 : 8.8.8.4

    It is recommended to use the Google DNS server given here or else you may use the DNS which is provided by your ISP.

    Hope your problem is solved now if not then let me know through comments.

    This has happened to me before and it was because of a stupid reason which was an incorrect password, it is a simple thing which you dont actually realise, so do make sure you are entering in the correct password.
