Solution: The first thing that you need to do in this particular case is to check your Wi-Fi network first. Connect another device to this network then check if you are able to go online. If not then the issue could be with the router in which case you will have to check why it is not functioning properly.

If the problem is not caused by the Wi-Fi network then proceed with the troubleshooting steps listed below.

  • Forget the Wi-Fi connection from your phone. Restart your phone then connect to the Wi-fi network again.
  • Wipe the cache partition of your phone from the recovery mode.

If the above steps fails to fix the problem then this could be caused by old software data that has not been completely removed from your phone. You will have to backup your phone data then do a factory reset to fix this problem.

Solution: Since the phone has undergone a major software update you should also check if there are apps that need to be updated as well. To do this just head out over to the Google Play Store then tap on the My Apps section. If you see any app that needs updating then proceed with the update.

If all of the phone apps are updated and the issue still persists then this might be caused by some form of old software data that got left behind during the update process.
