    Sounds silly but works !!
    Step 1 ; turn off wifi
    step 2 ; turn on hotspot
    step 3 ; turn on bluetooth
    step 4;turn off hotspot
    step 5; now try connecting
    it should work !! 😀

      Sorry for that, Gaurav but this is the only solution which I know. Although, you can try Factory Reset (This is the extreme solution for any android errors). But keep in mind that Factory Reset wipes all data from your phone. So, make sure you backup all your important data.

    Great tutorial! I have a note 4 and was continually having this problem at work but after following your steps my phone is working great

    Followed solution 3. Now it says “Connected, but no internet”. Changed it back to DHCP while connected, but than it changes back to “Obtaining IP adres…”.
    THe WiFi connection is great, because I’m writing this comment on my laptop which is connected to the same wifi router.
    Is there any other solution? Thanks in advance mate!

    This is a work-around not a fix. Lost my ability to connect to 1 of 2 routers after MM update dropped. Wiped MM and ODIN’d 5.1.1 stock back. Damage done. Logs show the phone thinks it is a legit connection. (Router in question) failed login attempts = 0. They broke something and no one seems to be able to repair it…
