Nexus S ICS update mobile internet and wireless not working

Yup, I was one of the impatient Nexus S owners who did not want to wait and decided to do the manual ICS update by downloading the ICS update via Andriod Police website and installing it.

And yes, Mobile Internet and Wireless internet was not working straight after I did the update.

BUT

I got it working 🙂 and it was easy !

Enable Mobile Internet

1.  Open the Dialler (click on the icon on the left hand bottom that looks like a phone)

2. Type *#*#4636#*#* into your phone

3. The Testing menu will open

4. Select Phone information -> select Run ping test and you should get an IO.Exception error

5. Scroll down the page and select Turn off Radio

6. The text on the button should turn to Turn on Radio. After this happens, select Turn on Radio

7. Scroll up the page and select Run ping test

8.  The following tests should result in a Pass: PingIpAddr, Ping Host Name (www.google.co.uk), and Http Client Test

9. Ensure Data enabled is ticked and the correct Access Point Names is selected under Mobile network settings

10. Open up a Internet Browser on your phone and navigate to a web site

11. Done!!!! 🙂 Merry Christmas !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Test Wireless

1.  Open the Dialler (click on the icon on the left hand bottom that looks like a phone)

2. Type *#*#4636#*#* into your phone

3. The Testing menu will open

4. Select Wi-Fi information

5. Select Wi-Fi status

6. Run ping test.

7. The following tests should now all Pass: Ping IpAddr, Ping Host Name (www.google.co.uk), HTTP Client test

8. Now exit the menu and turn on Wireless if you have not already and connect to the internet!
