I've just sorted this problem. This device had been working perfectly on our home wifi connection until 2 days ago so I had no reason to suspect our wifi router. However I thought i'd check and somehow the device's MAC address had 'disappeared' from the MAC address filtering allowed list. How does that happen? Anyway, I reentered the MAC address into the ...

You can: during the registration process, insert a phone number of your property. Wait until whatsapp tells you to manually input the code you should have received via SMS at the number you had selected. Once you have completed these steps, you will be able to use your whatsapp account from your phone using wifi connection. If you couldn't verify your ...

There's a lot of mixing up because the "aagh tinfoil hats" brigade are very mixed up themselves. There's no evidence that any radio emissions from mobile phones have any health effects whatsoever. You get a larger radio dose from your local TV transmitter than the phone in your pocket. To answer your specific questions: yes, you're safe from RF if there's ...

What a nightmare. I've spent the last 2-3 weeks trying to have HTC work with me to resolve the issue. Their customer service had been frustrating. After factory reseting my phone to no avail, it was concluded the only possible cause of the issue is that my software was outdated. It turns out, my phone had never updated its software. Ever. This is something ...

Yes you can if you still have contacts in your mobile and already registered on Whatsapp with a number.

Flashing a new (or old, for that matter) ROM will fix your problem. That's why they say to back things up before you mess with them ;)

It is possible that your device doesn't support the encryption and authentication methods that eduroam uses. While normal WPA2 encrypted WiFis use TKIP encryption, eduroam uses AES. In addition to this, the device must support Enterprise authentication (sometimes called 802.1X), and a compatible EAP method (EAP TTLS-PAP, PEAP, EAP TLS EAP FAST). Which of ...

This is something you should ask the IT support people at your university about. Most mysterious problems like this are caused by security settings on the Wi-Fi network itself. Probably it is MAC-filtered, so only devices that have been registered with the network administrators are able to connect. You might have forgotten registering your previous phone if ...

Well, that's weird I would say if the device is working with the other Wi-Fi network then have you tried talking with the Network Administrators? Sometimes they block mac address to prevent misuse ! I would say this problem can only be solved from the network admins. Try talking to them about the problem.

Hey man you could try Samba Network Music Player - it was specifically designed for this purpose. Still in development but it works.

Forget the Wifi Network you are trying to connect to from your mobile. Turn Off your Router & Turn it ON. Try connecting to this Wifi Network again

Adding any number of duplicate SSID's is possible if you have a unique IP address. In lay man's terms SSID is nothing but just an identification given to that particular network given to distinguish that network from others for simplicity. What defines that network is it's IP Address.If you have a conflict between an IP address then it may be a real ...

Try seeing if you can login when you are in safe mode. Boot into safe mode by holding down the power button to open the menu, then hold down the power-off button, and click "OK" when it asks you to reboot into safe mode. Then attempt to login once the phone restarts, and re-enable the virtual keyboard. Hope this helps.

First, please make the Question match your description (in description you wrote S3, in question S4). To your question: I think it can be disabled in WIFI menu. Press the Hardware "Menu" button, then go to settings.

There is a setting in most modern android phones which dictates whether the wifi stays awake or goes to sleep while the phone sleeps. Settings < wifi < advanced < keep wifi on during sleep. Make sure it's set to stay on during sleep.

Do you have a 3rd party battery saving app installed? They usually turn all connections off when your phone is in deep sleep, only refreshing it for a minute every hour or 45 minutes depending on the default settings.

Why not use the built-in Wi-Fi, and use a network monitor tool like Fing?

Facebook does indeed update pretty often with random bug fixes as well as security, performance and stability updates. Often this depends on the company as well as the urgency of the update. Security updates tend to be urgent and are often shipped as quickly as the exploits are patched whilst minor bug fixes might be accumulated first and shipped as a larger ...

WiFi hardware was faulty. (This is a common issue) The WiFi chip set no more working. So the whole motherboard should be changed. Costs nearly 5000INR (80$).

You might consider plex. You would need to install the plex server on some machine and then install the plex player on your Android. Software is free. I've found that it generally works well over wireless. However, I've been playing from my Win7 laptop over to my Roku (with plex installed). Haven't tried it on the phone. In theory, plex works at WAN speeds ...

Most of the Android Tablet rejects the wifi connection once they recieve any corrupt packet. To fix this issue we need to handle the exception at the network layer. Install Wifi-Fixer App from Playstore. Then: Run wifi from this app only. You will be able to see the logs of the packets. Issue will be solved automatically, if not revert back.

Seems DHCP is not enabled on WIFI router, you may need to ask others to obtain DNS address, to connect to internet, DNS info is required as well

Probably you can create a Tasker profile to connect to the Wifi network automatically when you arrive at home (or the home Wifi network is in the range) Another good thing you can achieve it using rSync backup is that, you can use rSync and use a Tasker job to periodically (or conditionally) upload/download data from/to your phone. You can refer to rSync's ...
