    Can't turn wifi off after turning on wifi direct. please help

    I accidentally turned on WiFi Direct, and now i can't get back into the Direct settings to turn it off. Whenever i go into any of the settings to turn off the wifi it completely freezes for up to ten minutes until it says application settings not responding and i can force quit it.

    I need to use my phone as a wireless hotspot, and not being able to turn off the wifi prevents me from doing it, what do i do??

    Does putting the phone in Airplane mode do anything to help the situation?

    Hi, I too have been facing a serious issue with wifi / wifi-direct on my s2 for quite some days. It all started once when i tried connecting to my wifi network at home. The wifi network never got detected (which it would previously) and the scanning continues and is not stoppable. It gives an error message that certain activity is not responding and asks whether to force close. The force close also doesnt help. Initially i figured out the flight mode was helpful in turning off the wifi scanning but when flight mode is switched off the wifi scanning starts again. I tried a new custom rom and also stock firmware but neither helped. The issue crops up mostly when i try selecting wifi-direct. It does not go any further after selecting the wifi-direct menu option, after which it hangs/blanks out and does kind of a short restart (not the complete restart). Please help.
