It's simple. In the terminal, or in adb shell, issue the command settings put global captive_portal_detection_enabled 0 and reboot. It should be disabled. More info: Android : How to remove “captive portal” detection on android 4.2.2 and 4.3 It also works in 5.

Do you have a scheduled Titanium backup? That sometimes turns of my wifi when it runs. Do an inventory of programs you have installed. A system app will not be turning off your wifi, but one you have installed may be doing that. Install BootManager (free) and select programs you do not want to run at startup. That would be almost everything. When the ...

FWIW I discussed a few ways to disable just the mobile connection here for a different reason but with the same result... depending on your Android version (you didn't mention which you were using), it's as easy as selecting the mobile icon in the notification settings to switch it off, or just selecting an invalid APN under Wifi->Mobile networks->Access ...

Hmmm. Have you tried un-rooting and then get the latest OTA Firmware Updates? You can re-root afterwards if you want. (In OTA download: Look for files with _wifi in the name) Or maybe try looking for custom ROMs if you feel ok messing with the Operating System. Sometimes getting the right updates solves stuff like that. I've done it on both tablets and ...

You will need to sign up for this service with your mobile provider (Verizon, TMobile, etc). Without paying for the ability to use this service, you cannot use it on your device. There are ways around this (involving Rooting your device, or trying some 3rd party apps) but in standard OS, you can't tether your device without paying your service provider for ...

Starting from Android 4.3 JellyBean, it's possible to scan WiFi access points even if the WiFi is off. It's called "Scanning always available" From PCMag.com, As those who have taken a spin around the Android 4.3 ROM have noticed, Google has made a change to devices' Wi-Fi settings in Android 4.3. "To improve location accuracy and for other ...

There are several things you could try. Have you tried restarting both the router and the phone? If it still doesn't work I would recommend trying to connect to your router using another phone or laptop. If another phone or laptop can connect, I would recommend reseting your phone. If another phone of laptop can't connect, you need to debug your router

As Microsoft) used to say: That's not a bug, that's a feature. Check for following: Settings -> Wi-Fi -> Menu -> Advanced: Scanning always available Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep

I would like to know what do you mean by 'share audio'? Is it sharing music Files or streaming music. If it is about sharing Music Files, you may use Xender from PlayStore which can send files over WiFi to any other user having Xender installed. For PC, you may use AirDroid from PlayStore to access any file or separately any Music File from any Browser on PC ...

I don't believe there is anything built-in for this, although some manufacturers may have added such a feature. There appear to be several apps that will do this. I've always just manually edited /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf myself (root required). (Note that there are different files/locations for different devices.)

It's telling you that the wifi network you are connected to is not encrypted, not your phone. Most open hotspots are not encrypted, it's just warning you of that fact. If you are on your home personal wifi, research how to enable WPA2 on your router.

I was thinking along the same lines as dmcdivitt on the power setting being the issue. I'm currently going through the same thing with an xperia z3, having just changed the power setting to Stamina mode. If you keep having the problem but don't want to turn off stamina, try using an automator app like macrodroid or tasker to force a reconnect to wifi. I'm ...

According to SO this should be possible: Can WIFI direct and WIFI station work simultaneously? says it should work if the driver supports multi-role. Explicit for Android: Android running Wifi Lan and Wifi Direct simultaneously describes Simultaneous wifi direct and network wifi is an optional feature for devices. Some devices allow this and some do not, ...

You only have one WiFi adapter so you only can either connect to a hotspot or host one, not do both at the same time. This is so because WiFi-direct is basically acting as a hotspot for others. With two individual WiFi adapters it would be possible because you would have two individual network connections.
