Thanks but as I can't access internet I can't update hardware etc.

JACUSTOMER-l5fap0by- :

We'd better leave it thanks, I need to go out.

MichelleNetwork :

as per the problem the issue is not with your router its the phone try changing the phone keypad settings and check if it the button works on your touch and if not then try updating the android.

MichelleNetwork :

you can take your phone to any phone repair shop and tell them to upgrade the firmware

MichelleNetwork :

and then you can check the wireless button and connect to any hotspot

MichelleNetwork :

if you are connected to any other router wirelessly then you can get connected to your routers aswell.
