I was able to get this resolved, sorta. I used a static IP on my phone and am now able to get to the internet. I'm not sure what has changed on my device to force me down this path but it is what it is.

I've discovered that there's an alternative way in which you can eventually recover the information from google's own servers since that's where your device (or past devices) backups/backed up your data. The following link is a guide to this option which makes heavy use of Android's Backup Manager developer tool. Fairphone and Android Backups to the Google ...

Good. In this case you may try Tasker from App Store (However there are free trail available). Set your profile that triggers when the Specific App (Ankidroid) is Opened, and write a simple task Proile: 1. App-> Ankidroid Task: 1. Enable WIFI 2. Wait N Seconds 3. Disable WIFI Tasker need some learning curve though, but it is very powerful and you can ...

This doesn't sound like a device issue as such. Even if your router is not connected to the internet it will still broadcast it's signal and allow devices to connect. A connection to a wifi network does not always mean you will have internet access. The network could be behind a proxy. To get internet access on this network you'll need to find the proxy ...

I've had the same issue and it turned out the modified kernel required for the root caused the issue. Flash the stock kernel and it will be solved.

When you are connected to your home wifi do you see the notification to 'Sign into Wi-Fi network'? If you tap on that item and then the 3 dots menu you will have the option to 'Use this network as is.' I'm in a similar situation as @Seraphim's host and so far this solution seems to be working. edit: This solution isn't working 100% fo my situation, ...

Try this and let me know if it solves it. Go to "Settings" and turn off the wifi. Wait 30 seconds. Turn it back on and most devices will quickly connect.

For transferring files between tablet and computer via Wifi there are a few methods. For file transfer between Android devices I personally use Superbeam. They also have a Windows app. On one device you select the files you want to send and it gives you a barcode and a Wifi name. On the other device, you scan the code or connect to the Wifi name and the ...

Android 4.x will connect to the strongest available network when first connecting, but, by default, once connected it will not change networks unless it loses its connection first. This is presumably because switching would involve disconnecting existing connections, and a second or three of no network. If you turn on "avoid poor connections" in the ...

I manage to get it works by change the router wireless mode from 802.11n only to bgn mixed, or better option like Izzy suggests gn mixed

This might be an ad-hoc network that you have accidently connected to. Ad-hoc netowrks is like a network where every device is a router (Very brief there). You can check this just by clicking on the network. You can also just click "forget" on the network after clicking on it in wifi menu.

You need to enable your Wi-Fi for that option to be available for checking or unchecking. Seems like a bug since I don't see any reason why the Wi-Fi should be enabled for the option to be available for toggle.

I would use a linux system on a pc or laptop to troubleshoot this wifi connection, using ifconfig, ping, iwconfig. There are also nice dhcp tools on linux. When I had wifi connection problems on an Android phone, with a linux system I found the error in the dhcp server setup. After fixing this, the Android phone connected effortless.

Your question has some ambiguity. Bluetooth is a more energy efficient protocol than wifi. USB hardly uses any energy for the data protocol. However, with USB the laptop can charge the phone, as is mentioned here before. From the point of view of the phone, compared to bluetooth and wifi, the phone's power consumption with usb can be negative. From the ...

Yes usb tethering is the most efficient method as compared to other methods. It can be used to charge your phone while working. Wifi tethering consumes too much battery and bluetooth tethering is very slow.

Check your device setting... You your device is on power saving mode then this can happen as the more optimized mode switch off wifi when not in use. I had similar issue with my HTC One which took some time for me to catch and fix. Cheers

The most probable answer to this will be that somebody blocked your device's mac-Adress from either the router or server, or probably you have misconfigured some VPN connections. Once this happened to me when I had my VPN misconfigured and sorted it out by going to Settings >> Mobile networks >> VPN >> and delete any vpn setting you made. ...

I'd recommend you taking a look at the app OS Monitor (see my answer here). Next to the "usual process list" it also offers a view on open connections, which app holds them, and where they go to. As an app requires an open connection to transmit data, it must be listed there. Even if you "almost miss the end of transmission", the socket is usually still ...

It does not turn off by default, but you can change that option in Settings>WiFi>Advanced

Mobile data means Internet access on phone via mobile network. It costs you money when not on Internet plan. Turning it off is very easy. Open notification bar turn off Mobile Data (icon with 2 arrows one up one down) -or- open Settings>(More)Mobile networks> (uncheck) Mobile data (SIM1 & SIM2).

Go to settings and tap SIM management and select always ask for mobile data connection... That is all...

There can be two causes: Hardware failure. Unlikely, but a possibility. Each device has multiple sub-models, and each sub-model has multiple roms. You need to be sure you're installing the Rom meant for your exact device model, even if you are re-installing a Stock Rom. If you do install a rom not meant for your device, you often face issues like these. ...

Did you reflashed the stock Rom? by the way factory reset only wipe data and cache directory which don't even touch the system directory. Normally system dir is read only but when you have root privileges you may change something in system partition and that can not be reversed with factory reset. Only solution is use can recovery or something and delete all ...

Netgear WN3500RP is what I would recommend to anyone who is looking for this functionality. It is a Wi-Fi Range Extender...meaning it connects to your existing Wi-Fi router and basically extends the Wi-Fi coverage. The USP of this device is that it supports Airplay/DLNA. How to use it? Plugin your speakers to its 3.5mm audio input port. Get an app to ...
