The "Save" button greys out until you enter both the host name and port number of the proxy server. As soon as you enter those, the button is back and you can save the settings.

I think you missed the password. Fill Password, then enable proxy to manual then type the proxy hostname and then the port. The all three need to be filled for the connect button to be enabled.

I'm using the Private Internet Access app for the same situation. It has a "kill switch" to prevent the leaking. It only works with the private internet access vpn service though.

This is because option "scanning always available" is turned on in WiFi Advanced Settings. Turn it off may solve this issue. (Click on image for larger preview)

This one is quite simple to use, it shows real time packets in a human-readable way as well as statistics. It takes it directly from iptables, hence you need a rooted device: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.googlecode.networklog

As Dan asked: What do the new icons look like? What's your question? I have had the same problem for the year i have had a LG-P925. The only way to resolve this is to reboot the phone. Since i rooted my phone, i go the app Quick Boot and put a widget button on my screen to reboot it. You will also realize that if you leave the wifi turned on and it ...

One more solution to your problem is to use an application like JuiceDefender. The answer to your questions also remains, Yes it is normal for the WiFi to be always on and as others mentioned you can either turn it off manually or let an app/OS do it for you. Some ROMs manage it well in built but still require the data to be turned off, otherwise there is ...

The Wi-Fi device inside your phone (that includes the radio transceiver as well as the hardware that decodes the signals and tells the main CPU of the phone) has several different power states. Even when the Wi-Fi is on, after it's idle for several seconds, the Wi-Fi device goes into a low-power state. In this state, it's still connected, and can still ...

Actually, wifi can be turned on or off manually, but you can set how the wifi will behave when the display is turned off - be it allways on, or turn off when screen is turned off and leave only 2G/3G/4G on. This settings can be found under the Advanced setting in menu on wifi settings page. Downside is that you are using your carriers data connection during ...

Wi-Fi is usually turned ON or OFF manually. If it's turned on, and it's not in use or phone is considered sleeping, it's still running. You might want to check with the CyanogenMod forums if there is any Wi-Fi issue for that version.

Android won't connect to a wifi access point without you specifying that you want to and saving it. Under settings, wifi, long-press on the names of any access points you don't want to connect to and choose "Forget Network".

Try deleting (forgetting) the wireless connection first. Sometimes security information (WPA/WPA2) related to the connection is cached and is no longer relevant. When the security information doesn't match, the connection can be shaky. If this is a pervasive issue (all wireless connections) delete (forget) all wireless connections, and open the app in app ...

Got it - went to Wifi->Advanced->Unchecked "Auto Network Switch." It seems to be something specific to Samsung phones with Android 4.3: see here

If you open ES Explorer select the file you want to share then click more "has the 3 dots vertical" and select send "has a image of a phone with a double sided arrow" it will scan and find the device. Select the device and share. This is the only way I was able to get ES File Explorer to work with sharing. I am sharing between my Note 3 and Nexus 7 (2012).

If you are using a wireless router, what is the brand and model? Your device should be able to connect to the router regardless if you have internet or not. Unless the wireless network was disabled instead of the internet connection. Cheers.

I just installed BESTSIGNAL on my HTC ONE M7 from the developer of the same name. It's the paid version but only AUD1.99 and it works well, simple yet highly functional GUI. However it was not compatible on my Google Nexus 7 (2012) nor my ASUS Transformer TF700T so be sure to check your device compatibility.

Wifi is designed to be fast and consume little power. This is especially true if you have a fairly recent phone. The drawback of this is distance or range. You trade the power savings for distance when you use a cellular connection. Therefore, a cellular connection does take up quite some power. This can be easily verified by turning on airplane mode and ...

You'll definitely have better batty life when you're not using wifi if you turn it off. I don't believe turning off 3g when you're on wifi will save much battery life, because Android is already automatically routing all communications over wifi.

Go to Wifi Settings > Advanced > Uncheck the option titled "Avoid poor connections". That will probably get rid of the "Poor connection prompt."

I have a Moto G as well (small world) and also had this problem when connecting to my school's WiFi network (even smaller world). It appears like the Moto has trouble autodetecting encryption settings on some networks. You can probably get it working by long pressing on the network, selecting modify network, and then changing the 'EAP method' and Phase 2 ...

I went around in circles with this by trying open and WPA security but nothing worked. The phone was not even listed on the router's device list. The MAC address filter was the problem. I fixed the issue by adding the phones mac address to the routers "white list" and now everything works well. Check you router mac filters or turn them off.

There is a startup in YCombinator's incubation center that is currently solving this very problem, they are called PushBullet. https://www.pushbullet.com Unfortunately though, their app is still a chrome extension, and it does not allow you to directly make calls from PC, your phone is connected with PC over LAN (read wifi), and it binds a port from your ...

I'm surprised by what you are saying, so let me recap. Yes, most networks send out their SSID (it is called a beacon). If your wifi is enabled and you haven't disabled scanning then your phone will listen for those beacons and try to match the SSID in the beacon against your phone's list of SSID's. Depending on your settings it will also use the beacon to ...

Stock Android doesn't support ad-hoc WiFi networks. If you have a rooted device, it's possible to work around this limitation as described here. Basically you can install a custom ROM that has this feature enabled, or manually configure the wpa-supplicant, or if you are feeling adventurous you can compile your own patched copy of wpa-supplicant that fools ...

This was my mistake. I had the proxy server configured incorrectly. Packet forwarding was not turned on so no traffic other than the intercepted port 80 and 443 traffic could reach the internet. Since Google uses ports in the 5000s to determine connectivity and those ports were essentially blocked no internet connectivity could be determined.
