As your device is rooted, you could directly edit the /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf file and remove the networks there. The block for each network looks like this: network={ ssid="network_ssid" psk="secretpassphrase" key_mgmt=WPA-PSK priority=1 } Remove the blocks of the networks you want to get rid off, save the ...

One possible but very tedious and hacky solution is to host the SSIDs on a Wi-Fi AP you control, so that they are visible on the S7. Then you can "forget" them through the normal Wi-Fi settings page. The list of saved SSIDs can be retrieved (but not altered directly!) with third-party Wi-Fi management apps. Having an access point capable of hosting "guest" ...

Ok. I have figured it out. I've learned quite a bit trying to figure this out, I don't have all the details but here is my Hypothesis: I believe it is a bug in my router. The router performs a search on the IEEE Standards website to look up the manufacturer of each device based on the first three "octets" of the MAC address WIKI. The first three octets ...

Yes, WPS is insecure and the WPS PIN can be used to recover the password. This app and this app claim to be able to do so if you have root. However, as pointed out by Izzy the password should also be available as plain text in the file /system/etc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf after you have successfully connected to the network once.

Possibly there could be couple of reasons for this sought of behavior from your device.. Check if it happens only when any battery power saver app is switch on, as most of the inbuilt/third party battery saver apps have access to your device's WiFi functionality and they switch it off whenever there's a event triggering the app's ...

There are several apps in the Play Store that can do this. One I've had some luck with is Samba Server. To see other options, search the store with keywords like file server. Some functionality will require a rooted device, so YMMV. Each of these have their pros and cons. I recommend trying a few to see which fit your specific situation best. Hopefully one ...

Improvement on previous Answer: Well i do partially agree with @Divin3 only a slight glitch i found was: All new routers are fully backward compatible with older devices hence a router built on Wireless-N will be fully compatabile with device capable of receiving only Wireless-G or older version. Difference will be that while serving to a device with W-G the ...

I basically want to use my phone with my headphones as wireless headphones Instead of one application, I have found more convenient to use two parallel apps, one for controlling the PC from Android phone and the other for sending all PC sound to the phone at the same time: keep the actual playing on the PC (use PC-OS instead of Android to process ...
