Did you backup/restore your settings to/from Google? If so, that's why you can connect to these wireless networks. One of the things that gets backed up is the wireless network passwords so when you restored them back on your new device it is able to connect. Android has built in backup functionality. It offers to backup settings (including wifi settings) ...

I get this very regularly, and the problem is usually down to the router but occasionally the Nexus. In WiFi settings, "Forget" the connection details. Reboot the router and phone. Once available, connect to the network again and re-enter your details. On my Nexus 7, entering a static IP fixed the problem when I was at the edge of WiFi range, but as you ...

My Android tablet also stopped connecting to my home wireless and reports connection out of range even when sitting in the same room as my access point (AP). I've looked everywhere for a solution doing everything from restarting my AP and tablet, changing the PW and even security mode (WEP, WPK, etc) with no success. My AP is an old router set to AP mode and ...

My tablet was connected to my home wifi and then stopped. Sitting in the same room as my router it reports the connection as out of range. I am using an old router set as an access point and everything else (android phones and laptops) connect to it just fine. To correct the problem I went in and reset the channel on the AP from 13 to 11 and VOILA instant ...

Activating the 2G only option solved the issue, indicating a problem with the connection, as mentioned in the comments. Another thing that solved it (temporarily, until I install more apps I guess) was reinstalling the OS. I only installed few apps and the minimal PA Gapps package (contains only some indispensable apps by Google), which presumably reduced ...

I don't know if this is an Android issue, so much as a WiFi problem. A while ago (before I got my Android) I had some issues connecting my computer to my WiFi -- my computer sensed that the network was there, but wouldn't connect. I was advised to reset the network. Unplug all parts of the network: router, modem etc. Hold your breath for ten seconds. ...

by reserving I guess uboat55 means to .. suggest the use of static IP address. you can configure your router to work with static IP address instead of a dhcp service.which I also feel should do the trick . configure your router with fixed IP address and latter use that IP address. or you can even try to assign IP address directly to ur device A. without ...

In the following screen that shows with the list of your installed apps, choose the app that you would wish to turn the WiFi on when opened. Go back and you will be asked to create a ...

While all networks you've connected to in the past are stored in a file called /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf, networks "just seen" around (but never connected to) are IMHO not stored to any file, but just "cached" in memory. So a simple trick to get rid of them is to enter airplane-mode for a couple of seconds (or a minute if seconds are not enough). ...

If you've noticed, it's not possible in most Android phones to receive and transmit WiFi signal at the same time. The WiFi feature shuts down when you switch on Access Point, which is reasonable because why would you use an AP if you already have WiFi at hand in the first place? On the other hand, it might be a hardware limitation if the same WiFi antenna ...

I found two possible solutions. 1st just search or program an application that sends the pictures and next deletes them. No idea if any exist. 2nd just install and configure an ftp server using filezilla ftp server and get an ftp client for Android and just cut and paste the pictures to the ftp and you are done..

Download ES File Explorer (the best file explorer no sought) and share the pictures folder on your PC. In es file explorer you just enter man, find your computer and transfer any files you want

On MSWindows 7, when I connect any USB device including my phone it asks me if I want to import the pictures. There is an option to delete them also on the USB device. It does it also for my Galaxy tab. But I never let Windows delete automatically, because I suspect it would take all images, not only camera images.

I don't know about Windows, but on Ubuntu Linux this is easily scripted using the photo management app Digikam. Digikam can be configured to recognize the device and automatically download the pictures. You just plug in the phone and it starts automatically, no need to do anything with the computer or the phone.

This problem might be caused by some third party application installed on the device. I faced this problem with quite a few applications like "Fast File Transfer", "Super Beam", etc. Applications that require to use the wifi-direct feature seem to create the problem. I uninstalled both the applications and the device wifi was normal again after a reboot.

First check whether its just the Wi-Fi on your phone or the LAN on your System. There are many possibilities with the Wi-Fi not working properly. Either the key is not matched with the key you configured under your modem Wi-Fi password. Signal might be weak. ( if signal<=10% then some devices Wi-Fi connection is disabled to save power) In-appropriate ...

"Sign into Wi-fi Network" says it all: No network, no connection. You most likely changed the password/keyphrase at your router, and forgot to adjust your devices. They cannot log in to the network anymore, hence you get that notification. Fixing your WiFi configuration will solve the other problem along. Edit: Thanks to Dan for pointing out my omission: ...

Well as going by your point that the problem is not limited to you but to your whole family then the problem lies with the configuration of your modem. If the wifi is not configured properly then it may or may not show connected but you will not be able to download or browse any content let it be Google play or the internet. As you have not specified any ...

Problem is with your phone and not router. Your phones software keeps assigning new MAC addresses every time you turn your wifi on. If you are using MAC address filtering then it will need a static address.

You can use the Drony application to authenticate with your proxy.

It depends on router to router, like I have a Belkin router, in which I can set up MAC ADDRESS Filtering. To set up this, open your router default page (might be 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1). If it asks for password and username, first try leaving it blank, if this does not log you in, try putting admin in both user name and password, if this doesn't log ...

You could use Wi-Fi Manager. In its settings, it has Switch to best network.
