My WiFi does not work it doesn't have an IP address?

How can I get an IP address for my Samsung Galaxy Note2?

You don't need to worry about the IP address of your Galaxy Note3 in order to connect it to the internet. All you need to do is search for the WiFi connection from your device and login from there. If you have set a password for your WiFi, you just need to enter that from your S3. Your S3 will automatically be assigned a temporary IP on the network it is joining through the magic of DHCP.

I need to "Port forward" #5198 & #5199 in order to run EchoLink, an Amateur Radio VoIP application. I'm running WIN XP SP3 & outward packet tests are successful, but inward tests fail. Internet access is through smartphone Samsung Galaxy S-III (Android 4.3) hotspot on T-Mobile 4G network. Need help in finding a place to "open" required ports, i.e. 5198 & 5199. Any and all assistance is appreciated in advance?

Turning on my Samsung phone to use WhatsApp and Kik?

I am in Madrid and I have data roaming off. I want to be able able to use email and WhatsApp at places that provide free WiFi. What do I need to do on my phone? Thank you!

Just make sure that your phone's WiFi is on. When you're in a location that provides free WiFi, your phone will pick up the signal and you can use WhatsApp, email, and Kik just like you normally would.

Does turning on the hotspot cost money to my phone bill? I have an unlimited data plan?

I have an unlimited data plan.

No, if you can enable or disable it freely, then your carrier does not charge any fees for the hotspot service. However, if you cannot enable hotspot at all (the option is missing or greyed out), then you may need to pay a fee (either one-time or recurring) in order to enable it. In that case, you will be charged the fee regardless of your using or not using the service.

You can just you your home wireless or any WiFi service. Hotspots at coffee shops and hotels etc. Free WiFi is everywhere these days so it is a feasible option. Also you can share internet from you phone to create your own portable WiFi hotspot so your Tablet can have internet access that way too.

I was wondering if my Samsung Galaxy S3 can connect to the WiFi I set up on my Mac using my airport?

I setup my airport to share internet access. I set up a network name, password, the works. But, my Samsung Galaxy S3 says that the network is saved but not connected and I keep pressing the connect button on my device and it doesn't seem to be working.
