        getMenuInflater().inflate(R.menu.activity_main, menu);  
        return true;  
    }

Add Permission in AndroidManifest.xml

You need to add following permissions in AndroidManifest.xml file.


<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_WIFI_STATE" />  
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />  
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.CHANGE_WIFI_STATE"/>
