No Gateway Reply is one of the troublesome network error that most smartphone users face while connecting to home network or any any other Wi-Fi network. Here i will tell you some basic troubleshooting steps which you should take to fix the " No Gateway Reply" error.
No Gateway Reply is generic network timeout error which occurs when the gateway Wi-Fi router in most cases fails to respond to mobile device request due to data mismatch( ip address or WLAN server address in case you are shifting network). The device just fails to communicate with the gateway and after a few seconds later a screen showing No Gateway Reply is presented to you.
Troubleshooting No Gateway Reply Problem:
Mostly it is a one time problem in the start, once the device communicates with access point you will not face the problem. First of all check the Wi-Fi Network you are trying to communicate is a pubic one or secured one with WEP/WPA key.
If its a secured network you would require its WEP or WPA security key( Its an authentication type), only then you can enter its network, if your WLAN is in public mode( which is not recommended) then just do the WLAN scan, it will detect the network and you are ready to go.
The problem "Web: No gateway":
For some odd reason you are presented with this screen
password: admin or password
these are by default but might change.
General Wi-Fi router security settings for your help:
SSID index: Value 1
SSID : Type anything mostly network name
Broadcast SSID : Yes
Authentication type: choose any i use WPA-PSK
Encryption : AES
Pre-shared key: Type your key, this is your Wi-Fi password, anyone having this key can access your internet via Wi-Fi, you will need to enter this key in your mobile device to authenticate yourself- one time only during the very first connection.
if there are any other setting which you don’t understand then just keep them default.
Try connecting the device again, if your device still showing "No Gateway Reply" error then manually go to tools, settings, connection, access points, options, edit, options, advanced settings, ipv4 settings( e61i )
change ip address to 192.168.1.x ( choose x so that there is no conflict among the devices) choose x= 7,8,9 to be on the safe side
Default gateway: 192.168.1.1
if there is a option of Subnet mask set 255.255.255.0
Automatic detection works best, try these steps as your last measure.
