It means data is being transferred to and from your device. That doesn't necessarily mean it is working. You should try to use a speedtest app with and without the antenna to see if there is a difference in connection

Based on my testing, adb status-window will continuously monitor the status of the ADB (whether it's connected to a device or not). While it's active, connecting a device will show Android Debug Bridge State: device and disconnecting it will show Android Debug Bridge State: unknown On the other hand, adb logcat also continuously monitors the ...

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.

It might be due to the network connection of your house's wifi not completely connected yet. Do ensure that your phone display Connected to (name of your house's wifi) before you continue to surf the net. Do take a look at the up and down arrow of the wifi connections that its moving as well. Else, try to on and off your wifi and try again till you are ...

The drop down button in the wifi tab does not have the change cycle option That is very much expected. The data usage and monthly billing cycle of internet that you are using through Wi-Fi is provided via Router and is not controlled through Mobile device. Since SIM-based Mobile internet is very much tied to the mobile itself, Android provides ...

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 ...

So, I came across the solution for my very specific problem: My tablet seems to have a problem concerning youtube and IPv6. It's probably some flaw in the firmware. After speaking to my internet provider I am now constantly leasing an IPv4 Adress and youtube is working just fine. If you have similiar problems you should definitly try this out!

I was struggling too and today I finally found a solution (may be a bite late for you but may help others) that works for my stock rooted android device 4.4.2 : Install E-Robot, a powerful tasker that have really great features Then install Secure Settings, that will appear as a third party actions on E-Robot. There, you can choose Root Action and VPN, ...

The solution was indeed to use tasker but there were some subtleties. WiFi off doesn't appear to work if the "sign in to network" alert is active. This can be solved by using a task consisting of WiFi disconnect followed by WiFi off. Such a two-part task doesn't undo itself when the profile is no longer active, so an exit task is needed to turn the WiFi ...

I can't say that I completely understand how but the issue was solverd after I changed the DNS settings of my phone (for my home WiFi). I set it to Google default DNS 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4. And since that never this problem again. Why the phone was loosing the whole connection is still unclear to me (though it remains now pure theoretical question)

Hard reset or new rom installation does not change values in /persist/ partition, so if the problem is there as seems to be, hard reset will have no impact at all.

This is not a hardware problem, was caused on many devices since Android Lolipop updates, was worst with Marshmallow updates (Mine Nexux 6 was broken at that point) and now Android N beta doesn't fix anything, seems to be related to the new way system validates and provide macaddress informations, seems that in some cases it simply broke, there are reports ...

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 ...

There is actually another step before running the command line when executing the hostapd with conf file, which is to load the firmware. And this is exactly why there is this print: D/hostapd ( 7885): ctrl_iface not configured! The loaded firmware will probe an interface in /data/misc/wifi/hostapd and this is the Unix domain socket for which the hostapd ...

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" ...

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 ...

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 ...

Did you try booting into safe mode once (powerbutton then long tap power off). After starting in safemode, restart into normal mode. Had the issue, and this worked for me.

In case you are still experiencing this "obtaining ip address" loop issue, I am referring you to this post where I've answered this question: Asus Zenfone 5 stuck at obtaining IP address from office's Wi-Fi, but works well on other Wi-Fi
