    Hello guys,
    I own a LG Optimus Black(P970).

    The cell is pretty good, but the only problem that I find is that I cannot access Internet via wifi.

    I tried using wifi(Status: Connected, Security: WPA/WPA2 PSK, Signal-strength: Excellent) at home.
    Everytime I connect to the wifi-network, it authenticates-connects-disconnects-connects-disconnects and so on.

    Tried it at other places too. And the result was the same.
    All the places that I tried, the signal strength was excellent.

    Recently, I tried it at my office.
    The wifi network over there is secured with WEP
    (Status: Connected, Security: WEP, Signal-strength: Excellent, link-speed: 54Mbps).
    When I tried to connect it, there were no issues in the connection/authentication. It stayed connected until I turned the wifi off. But the problem is that I cannot connect/access the Internet even though its connected to the wifi network.

    Need some help guys.

    Note: I am damn sure that there's nothing wrong with the password.

    airports are there for travel and commerce .Wifi at hotels ,airports etc are a conveinence for customers not for people who need a quick wifi hook up.Im sure most folks would rather go to a coffeeshop ,not drive out to a airport. Look up what San Jose CA has done, providing free wifi ( hi speed ) for its citizens. Well done, maybe there is hope
