Hey iam planning to buy a new phone should i buy the Samsung S5230W Star WiFi or the Samsung S5600 Preston please helpppppppppppp
i lose my temper with wifi problem. there 's always the response " authentication failed" when i connect to my own wifi which is set password. i'v been trying all your advises but they don't work at all
is Samsung Star Wifi already available in the Philippines? Does it have the same price as the other Samsung star?
if you play videos on you tube in this phone are you going to download the video or you can play it in real time?
please answer my question... asap...
I purchased the wi-fi version at 9450 at Kolkata. With 3G coming, I should have purchased the 3G version which costs 1K more
This mobile is the real deal guyz.
just got a couple of days back and everything working fine. for the youtube videos it will not play HD videos but will play all of other videos as far as my experience is concern. i got with 100 MB memory and wifi is also working excellent menus are logical user friendly. Best thing is it helps me in viewing office files and pdf too.

thank for giving me this advice.
I bought it yesterday and tried using wifi at home. It worked fine.
Here are few things about my setup.
-Mine is not a secured network.
-Initially tried with dynamic ip, it didn't work. It comes up "disconnected"
-I configured IP statically.
-It then connected and working fine.
-Connections can be edited from Menu>>Settings>>Connections
-Use advanced settings to assign static IP.
ive got little problem with this.
some songs i've transferred either by bluetooth or pc studio are gone after some hours. i will copy it again and will be gone again. always like that.

hi s5233w user,
I finally found out how to solve the wifi connection problem yesterday and I just wanted to share with anyone who has the same problem as me.
My problem was when we try to connect to wifi it shows "Connecting" then become "Disconnected" and I can't connect to the wifi.
Anyone facing this problem ? Well, here's how i solved it* (*I may not sure it will work on u but it works for me)
1st step : Start switching on your phone's wifi and search for the wifi connection u desired to connect to.
2nd step : Add the wifi setting as below : All the other settting is automatically filled for you except this*
* this is the solution to your problem.
SET Name : "wifi connection name" (automatic filled)
Bearer type : Wi-Fi (automatic filled)
SSID : "wifi connection name" (automatic filled)
Auth Type : Open
Encryption Type : WEP
Key Length : 64 bits or 128 bits**
Index ID : 1
Network Key : **
Protocol : HTTP
Home URL : http://
Proxy address : "leave blank"
Linger Time (sec) : 300
Adhoc : off
If u noticed the * above.
Notice the Key Length :
64 bits = 10 characters password.
128 bits : 64 characters password.
Select 128 bits if your WEP password exceed 10 characters. (mine was 13 characters)
Remember to fill in the "Network Key"
Network key = WEP password = your wifi router password.
the difference between S5233W than other phone is that we need to key in the WEP 1st before we can connect.
where else other brands will prompt us to key in the WEP when we wanted to connect.
After setting everything... save it and try to connect again.
You should able to connect, if not, restart your handset. (mine requires me to restart)
Please test this and let me know if it works. As it works for me.
Hope it helped you guys.
