Poor connection may mean that: there is either a weak signal from your wifi partner device. there is much noise from other systems using the same frequency. Both mean that many data-packets are lost and have to be retransmitted so your overall throughput goes down. You can compare this with: somebody is speaking not loud enough many people are ...

This problem has been plaguing me ever since I upgraded my Sony Ericcson Experia Pro ("iyokan") from Cyanogenmod 7.2 (Android 2.3.7) to 9.0 (Android 4.0.3) -- until today when I did some more detailed investigation. It's pretty clearly a defect related to the DHCP client. When it manifests, the device fails to obtain an IP address from any access point, ...

Try going into Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications -> WordFeud and clicking both the Clear cache and Clear data buttons. Clear data may remove your account, so you may have to log back in, but it should help the problem. If it doesn't, I'd have to say uninstall and re-install.

While @k3b is right in what a poor Internet connection means that's not what's causing the error message to appear. If you actually have connection issues you don't get an error message (pretty counter-intuitive) It appears that since upgrading to ics people have a problem with this. Theoretically there should be a setting to switch this off under: ...

Plug in your device to your mac and the tap on "Turn on USB storage" and OK. You should see your device just like an ...

Is there a way to get a notification that I'm off the air? I don't think this is possible, but there might be an app out there for it. I'm not sure. I'm fairly certain that it's not a native function in Android though. Is there a way to reconnect without rebooting the phone? Airplane mode on/off seems to be the easiest route. If that doesn't work, ...

I encountered the same issues sometimes and I couldn't detect it without trying to make a phone call. I then went into the parameters panel, into the Mobile network part. There, I force the phone to select my operator (and remove the auto-detection option). Since this modification, when I'm disconnected from GSM network I have a little warning sign (grey ...

You can always perform a speed test and check for packet loss( Speedtest.net, pingtest) Alternatively, you can try calling the skype Voice Testing Service which should be in your contacts from before, and if it isnt there the username is echo123 i belive.

If your phone is waiting for an IP address, then your WiFi is connected. And the third last row in your log seems to confirm this status: 03-19 13:12:22.441 D/AutoSetting( 4710): Util - wifi connected If you can't get a valid IP address, then: the network doesn't have a DHCP server the network has been explicitly instructed not to give IP addresses to ...

Update: Try cleanup and reinstall of drivers as mentioned here. Seems to have worked for others. This seems to be a known issue, and many have had success by using a different cable, connecting to a USB 3 port etc, but clearly, those won't work in your case. Not sure what your usual usage is, but for file transfers, you can use Airdroid, which connects ...

Your phone might be going into USB Debugging Mode on connecting to PC. After phone is connected to PC via cable, disable Debugging Mode [Settings -> Applications -> Development] and then check for Kies Connection. My friend had the same issue and we resolved it like this.

The basic test you should do is to just switch the SIM card: have a coworker of yours try their sim in your phone, or try your sim in their phone, and see if it works. If your sim can not log into the network on a different phone, you should contact your phone company for explanation. On the other hand, if it is your phone, then you should look into that.

It sounds like you're trying to broadcast a wireless signal using your laptop so that your mobile devices can connect to it. If you set this up via the standard Windows 7 networking tools it would have created an ad-hoc network, and Android does not support ad-hoc connections out-of-the-box. You can, however, use a "softAP" (that is - software access point) ...

Have you scanned the WLAN frequencies to see how strong is your own AP in relation to the other ones? I used Android program called Wifi Analyzer that does that; it shows you visible APs and their channels, and how badly their signal leaks into other channels. You can also see signal strength of you AP from that. The mobile phone often has a lot crappier ...

After reading a bit this seems to be a pretty common issue with folks who are running Skyraider on their devices. I don't know exactly what they're talking about, but apparently your radio needs to be the right version in order for your WiFi to act properly. This thread over at IncredibleForum looks like it might be where you need to start.

I'm doing the exact same thing, except with my Captivate, and I ran into the same problems. To solve them, I use three apps across the two devices. On my N7, I use Tasker to detect when I lose wifi connection and use Bluetooth Auto Connect as a Tasker plugin to automatically connect to my phone. On my phone, I use Bluetooth Auto Tethering, which ...

The reason it does not work properly is this: The init.rc script resides in within the RAMDisk attached to the boot image. Hence the init.rc script that was edited and pushed across is now overwritten by the boot image's own script upon reboot - effectively changes are lost! You need to extract the boot image, using every boot image has the kernel and ...

I have resolved this issue myself. Here is what I did to resolve it: Accessed wireless router's settings. Please remember I do not have access to ADSL router which is connected to the internet. The linksys wireless router setting has "Wireless" menu. Under this menu, click on "Wireless MAC Filter". Click on "Enabled" radio button. Click on "Prevent listed ...

I've the exact same issue on a Galaxy Tab P1000 with gingerbread 2.3.3 since about 2-3 weeks. My current interpretation is that Google has updated its certs (the current one I get is dated 11/7) and the new ones are not trusted by Android anymore making it impossible to use any google account for mail/play store/etc... If this is the case, the only solution ...

Lucky for you, I am a super user on the Spotify community. First, you need to wipe the data for the Spotify app, and then re login. Once this has done, it may take a few seconds for the app to recognise the Internet connection. If that fails to work, reinstall the app, and login again.

I just went through the same issue. Definitely solved now. At first I had a very bad connection speed even on H+ or 3G. On spotify app the "bad connection" problem turned to "no connection" so I decided to investigate. The problem was my network AP which was configured over "WAP" which is not a real full featured Internet connection. So I had to switch to ...

If the SIM card works, and you can get a network signal, then the deice is unlocked and it is a different error that is stopping internet from working. It could be due to a number of reasons that internet isn't working, I am going to list them: Invalid/Wrong APN's APN (Access Point Names) allow your device to connect to mobile internet. You nust ensure ...

Have you tried dialing *#*#526#*#* ? It fixed a wifi connection problem I had. I dialed it on the phone, got the "call cannot be completed" message. Hung up, restarted the phone, then went through the whole phone call again. It worked. My wifi problem is fixed. I kid you not. Google it. I hope this helps.

It's possible that the USB cable is designed for charging only (i.e. not a data cable), or is of poor quality. Off-topic: Although not a USB cable, I have encountered OTG cables that could not detect a USB drive. In this case, it was a poor (or defective) OTG cable; other cables were able to detect the USB drive. Related posts (external): All micro usb ...

All of the information about it is pretty vague. Probably because they don't want people attacking a particular Google server. For instance, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 owners manual has this to say: Note: Network status icons turn blue if you have a Google Account added to your tablet and the tablet is connected to Google services for syncing your ...

I've had the same thing happen to me on my LG G2X running CyanogenMod. So I don't think it's related to your specific device or software. Moderate success has been reported using the "FXR WiFi Fix And Rescue" app, and it's been tested on the Vibrant. You can also try WiFi Fixer.

I do not have rep to comment, is wifly a serial interface? Second, this is a good place to ask that, I understood they were inviting developers here. Extra, after comment reply As far as I have found there is no ability for serial from the android phones. I have found sources where people mod the OS to support USB on the Go. Then you can be a USB host, ...

First, I'd start by ensuring that the APN settings are correct. A different SIM card from another carrier could have overwritten them. You can access these by going to Menu -> Settings -> Wireless & networks -> Mobile networks -> Access Point Names and then tapping on the selected one to edit it. The correct settings are sometimes listed ...

I too had this problem on CM9. And the problem was so bad that I could barely connect to my WiFi. So I decided to fix it myself. I wrote an App which now easily solves this problem. You can get it from Google Play. Now a bit of explanation: The problem: As you might know, when your device says "Poor connection" the connection is not really poor, it's all ...
