A TCP connection cannot be kept alive during a network change, since you get a new IP address, causing all connections being terminated. TCP builds upon IP to get the data delivered. If you change networks you also change your public IP address which is used by the TCP connection to let TuneIn deliver data to you. This invalidates the current connection and ...

A credible source: AndroidPolice tl;dr: Google brought in an option (by default enabled!), which is a checkbox reading "Scanning always available" in WiFi -> Advanced. The general purpose: "To improve location accuracy and for other purposes, Google and other apps may scan for nearby networks, even when Wi-Fi is off." To improve location accuracy by ...

Pretty much.. no. WiFiKill uses ARP poisoning to cause computers on the local network segment to use the wrong MAC address for the router, resulting in all packets being dropped. A second device running WiFiKill would have no visible effect; however, if you could spoof ARP reply packets which have the correct MAC address in them it could be used to mitigate ...

There are a number of applications (3G Watchdog for example) which allow you to restrict background data to WiFi; therefore when you've left the application it cannot continually use data. In later versions of Android you can go to Settings > Data Usage > Apps and restrict background data, thus not needing a third party app. Both methods do not require ...

From the thread you linked to (highlighting my own): The root via vcore doesn't work any more. Please get it looked up. Lots of people online are getting this problem as they flash the root. Problems are all of the internal storage are gone, left with 8gb and all apps in storage wont work. Which seems to be the issue you are having. This appears to be ...

While the answers given so far are true in current practice and certainly when switching between your mobile internet provider and home internet provider, both IPv4 and IPv6 do have mobility solutions, IPv4 by extension and IPv6 natively. They enable a mobile user to have a static home IP address and a dynamic mobile IP address which allows TCP connections ...

There's no way to keep a TCP connection alive if your IP address changes (and it will change when going from 3G to WiFi). You don't need uninterrupted connection for uninterrupted playback though - most "radio" apps prebuffer some data to keep the music playing even when you lose connection for a while.

Check whether these options as below: Go to Settings->Wifi->Advance Settings 1)Keep WI-Fi on during sleep - Never. 2)Scanning always available - Unchecked. 3)Wi-Fi optimization - Checked. And then try...if that doesn't solve it can be a problem with ROM/Kernel.

Couldn't you decide to do the simplest thing that can be done?! Just go to Settings -> Wi-Fi -> Advanced and tick the "Avoid poor Internet connection" voice... This way your device will stop using weak WiFi connections ;)

I'd do something different instead... Since your problem is that your device does not store WiFi passwords (or this seems to be the real problem) I'd suggest you to go into /data/misc/wifi/ and find the *wpa_supplicant.conf file. In this file the device stores every WiFi entry. Open it and see if there are duplicates: when you enter a password more than ...
