Wireless on Android phone


[link to this post]
 
Is there a reason my Android phone wireless sometimes dies? It connects, but wont pass data. No IP conflict or anything, and all other wireless devices on the network connect and work fine. Rebooting router fixes it, just weird its always the phone that it happens to

is that dying or not connecting properly ? I found that a phone of mine would make a Siemens router reboot every time it connected, so that wasn't a whole lot of use either.

It will connect fine, passing data ok then at some point in the day stop working and not pass data. Then if I disconnect and reconnect it cant authenticate while other devices still can

Try changing the channel its connecting to.

When i had a DLink 615 router and a HTC Wildfire i had a similar issue on channel 6.

On your android phone have you made sure "Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep" is set to "Always"?

After 2 months from the original problem, ive noticed that on the 23rd/24th of every month my phone refuses to connect to my router without a reboot. What a strange issue laugh
