Do you have security enabled on the router?

No I do not receive an error, but when I try to connect it says that it is connected, but it will not connect to the internet. Yes I have security enabled on the router

JACUSTOMER-kengm6fy- :

Yes, it is a Samsung Galaxy. In checking under Cisco connect it says device not found

Ryan B. :

thanks

Ryan B. :

try to search the market and download wifi fix

Ryan B. :

seems to be an issue with the device going to sleep to standby and then disabling the wifi

JACUSTOMER-kengm6fy- :

In a MTP application it says it is connected?

JACUSTOMER-kengm6fy- :

I can't search the market because it won't allow me to set up a google account

Ryan B. :

and you can't setup a google account because you cant connect to the internet, right.

Ryan B. :

If you go to settings>wireless and networks> Wi-Fi Settings>Tap the next next to Wi-Fi(Turn on Wi-Fi)> Now you should see your network name listed in the available networks, clck on it and click forget. THen it should appear again(you may have to click on menu then scan for networks) then tap it and click on connect. Once connected try to download wifi fix.
