I am trying to install Samsung Kies on my HP Compaq laptop running Windows XP. However, it is not installing. Installation stops showing "No internet connection warning!!!" even if am connected to WiFi. I had downloaded the full setup from the Samsung's site but it is still not getting installed. Why this is happening?

happy to hear that it worked. regarding s3 please do a kies update and then try, did you tried with uninstalling kies from your machine ever before, if so there may be some corrupt registry values, try uninstalling kies along with the reg entry with any software like 'your uninstaller' and then install it. it will work for sure. – Renju Chandran chingath Mar 25 '13 at 7:07

Just try installing after connected to internet. Some Installers requires a working internet connection even if it does not have anything to download.
