There is a very good chance that you may not have a driver problem. There is a very important detail everyone seemed to miss about using network connections via USB: they must be plugged in before the phone is powered on! The phone must also have Wifi and Data turned off, and potentially Airplane Mode! All before the device is turned on. Some devices can ...

WiFi "sign in" now includes dealing with landing pages asking you to accept terms & conditions. I've noticed more and more public routers throwing these out, and then terminating connections if you don't hit the right web page quickly enough. I've seen iOS and Android respond differently to these things, depending on when the device finds the connection, ...

Depending on your specific Android device there may be an option to disable auto connect for certain networks - on Sony Xperia handsets (including my Z1 Compact) you can press and hold the WiFi network name and untick the "Auto-connect" option - this allows you to stop the Android device automatically connecting to WiFi constantly, but without you needing to ...

You don't say much about the wireless adapter and which chipset it uses. This is critically important as it will determine which kernel wifi module you'll need. I'm pretty sure Nethunter as distributed already has native support for OTG/host mode as well as some kernel patches to support monitor mode, but not 100% which chipsets are supported/recommended. ...

I downloaded an app called Hotspot Shield. All you need to so is start it and while on your school's wi-fi, it will unblock everything. NOTE: This app uses alot of data so make sure you are connected to wi-fi first.

If wifi connection is not very strong like musicwithoutpaper said it consumes more battery and it may save little battery to switch to 4G when idle. I would suggest to make little experiments and then choose optimal way to go.

Get filedrop (it requires the person that you want to transfer the file to to have it) It works a lot like AirDrop but on any device. I use it often when I have to transfer files between my friends. There are two options on a computer, either their app, or their website

I had the same issue but solved it by using a different wifi interface instead of different versions of Android. I had an Edimax interface that was not compatible, and changed to a TP-Link interface which is working now.

These are probably hotspots set up by your carrier, designed to reduce load on their 3G/4G network by offloading some of it to WiFi. You would not be able to prevent using these unless you turn off WiFi (why is that a problem for you?) or root / use a custom firmware.

Do you have an app installed called 'Hotspot Login Assistant'? It appears as though it could be related to an app that attempts to log you into hotspots automatically. I've found several sites on the safemovedm.com domain which imply that this is caused by 'Hotspot Login Assistant'.

Just disable captive portal detection. In the terminal, or in adb shell, issue the command settings put global captive_portal_detection_enabled 0 and reboot.

"Normal WiFi" and "WiFi direct" are separate things. If you want to use the latter, the answer is yes: both devices must be supporting it. If, on the other hand, your question is whether there's a way to directly connect the two: there's always the "hotspot" feature, which was introduced already before 4.0. So one device (supporting this) could act as a WiFi ...

I had the same problem. I updated to Lollipop 5.1 yesterday. Today, my wi-fi connection suddenly stopped and went to this infinite loop with the message "Obtaining wi-fi address". Some people said that I should switch to Static IP in advanced settings, didn't work for me. My solution was: simply reboot your router.

How do you import CA certificates onto an Android phone? Android's official documentation can be found at Work with Certificates. Note that the certificate must be ASN.1/DER encoded. Once the encoding is correct, just ensure the extension is CRT or CER. If its not (like you named it ca-cert.der), then rename it (to ca-cert.crt). If you have a PEM ...

It does sound like the device is using a DNS Cache to cause such an error (you've alluded to this yourself) I'm not aware of an option to flush dns cache on android, short of a good old fashioned reboot. Some suggest clearing browser cache , and switching wifi on and off to force a flush, however a reboot is surefire.

Have you tried opening sites which are not locally hosted via the same hotspot? I think having the site hosted on the same hotspot as that of the phone's wifi might be giving such a problem. May be an IP conflict or something else like that.
