After updating my Samsung galaxy S2 it will no longer recognise

Resolved Question:

After updating my Samsung galaxy S2 it will no longer recognise the Wi-Fi in my apartment, the Wi-Fi on the phone works when I am away from the apartment.
My laptop connects to the apartment Wi-Fi without any problem.
I have reset the network SSID, Security Type and Password XXXXX it only shows Not In Range.
I have tried the WPS push button option but this does not work either.
Please advise.

And/or are you able to log in the wifi/wireless router in your apartment?

 

What's the brand/model of the wifi/wireless router?

Have you tried to disconnect the power cord from the router for about 5 minutes, then reconnect?

Also, power off the phone, then remove battery, then reinstall, then turn on and check.

Please let me know. Thank you

Please have the router tech give your the router's login username and password, and have him adjust the router's channel number. Please get back to me if there is still any issue. Thank you
