Strange issue with my brand new Samsung Galaxy S2.

I can browse the internet, send/receive emails, browse the market.  If I try and download an app, it keeps saying loading, then eventually fails.  If I swap to 3G, it downloads immediately.

Is this an issue with the phone or my wireless AP - I've never had any issues prior to this.

Quite possibly your wireless, I get the same issue at work. Can you successfully log into Google Talk? If Talk works, then the Market /should/ work too. Give it a go on another access point like a hotspot at a Caf? and see if the issue still persists.

Make sure you wait for the app screen shots to load before selecting install. That should solve the problem.

Also, if you're rooted, try SetDNS (free app, android market). It makes the market load much quicker (for most people).

I've got the same issue - very strange. I can download from the market over wifi at work, over 3g, but not at home. Checked the appropriate ports are open, and tested opening a website through those ports.

If you go onto help on the market it's a known issue with no current resolution for my instance. Others are able to get it to work after clearing cache for specific apps in a specific order.
