How to connect Samsung Galaxy Ace with Wirless Router


Samsung Galaxy Ace Smartphone comes with inbuilt WiFi adapter with which one can easily connect it  with any other devices like Wireless Router to surf Internet on it. I have been using my Samsung Galaxy Ace to connect to my Wireless Router for my surfing. There are only two things which you need to know to connect your Samsung Galaxy Ace with your Wireless Router:

a) Enable Wireless settings on your Samsung Galaxy Ace

b) The Password of the Wireless Network which you want your Samsung Galaxy Ace to connect with.

Steps to Enable Wireless Settings and to establish a Wireless connection with the Router are given below:

Step1: Go to Settings > Wireless and networks > Wi-Fi settings


Steps2: Enable the Wi-Fi feature by checking the box provided. As soon as you enable this check-box the device will start searching for available wireless networks which are in its range. After a complete scan it shows the SSID’s of various Wireless Networks which are available.

Step3: Now for establishing a wireless connection with the network of your choice click on the preferred network. As soon as you click it will prompt for the password. Enter the password for the particular network which need to be connect. After entering the password click on Connect. It will check for authentication with the Wireless Router and if the entered password matches then a Wireless Connection notification will be shown in the top right corner of your mobile phone showing the strength of the connection.

Note: For Network SSID and Password contact your Network Admin or if you yourself have configured your Wireless Router then enter the same SSID and Password which you have entered in your Wireless Router.

Many a times the Network Admin may keep the Wireless Router in Hide by enabling the Hide Access Point feature in the configuration settings of the Wireless Router. In this case the Samsung Galaxy Ace will not recognize and identify the device automatically. You need to manually enter the SSID and Password both.


I have been using BSNL Network and Wireless Router to connect my Samsung Galaxy Ace to surf internet and it works fine. If you have any query in above tutorial then comment on this post.

    Thanks for the information provided. I am using Tikona Internet (wired) along with TrendNet modem & Belkin wireless G adapter. I have set up the modem & adapter and I can see TrendNet655 as wireless connection (WAP-2/Personal & AES encryption). I am also able to connect to the wireless network (TrendNet655) from my Samsung Galaxy Ace thru Wi-Fi but not able to surf internet.

    Can you please help me in this?

        • Sidhartha says:

          You must first of all check with other people or devices for if their device is connecting to wi-fi. Go to other wifi hubs and check if your device is working there.

    When i go to the library which has wifi i can see the network and click on it.however there is not a place to enter the password. The phone says that I am connected but i van not access the web.
    Is there a way to get to the area where i can enter the password? The library staff could not help me.
    Thanks if you can help.

    • Sidhartha says:

      A wi-fi Network may not require a password for connection, so that’s not a problem. If you are unable to browse the net, then check the net speed with other devices first.

    I have a Samsung Galaxy Ace. I have tried doing this many times. My wireless comes up on the list and when I put my password in nothing happens. I have tried rebooting and charging but nothing has worked. It just says disabled, disconnected, etc. Also, how can you tell if you are using 3G (data) or wifi? I have almost given up…

    • Sidhartha says:

      Check your wi-fi router for the speed and power, if its working properly try changing your settings to default. Meanwhile all your connection {wi-fi, 3G, usb, bluetooth etc} are shown on the top of your homescreen.

    plz tell me how i can upgrade ace duos software through WiFi
    when i connect internet through wifi it browse but cannot upgrade softwear

    • Anand says:

      you can do so by making your phone discoverable with Kies Samsung software……….on your desktop….
      for this you can either use the data-cable for making a connection between your Ace Mobile phone or making your device detected on Kies with a WiFi network…..
      Once you do so as stated above, Kies during start-up check for the latest available firmware/software and checks the same from your phone and automatically prompts you for the upgrade…..
