Wifi Randomly Stops Working


Wifi Randomly Stops Working

When connected to my wifi network at home, after a seemingly random period of time (sometimes half an hour, sometimes over a day), the wifi stop working. The phone says it is connected, but no internet connectivity works (and after a period of time, background apps start to freak out and "stop responding"). The only temporary fix I've found for this problem has been to disable then re-enable the wifi. My computers at home don't have any problems with the wifi.

Anyone have any ideas for a permanent fix?


Re: Wifi Randomly Stops Working

I was having this issue too and found this fix on xda forums:

Settings>wi-fi>menu/advanced>wi-fi frequency band>change auto to 2.4ghz.
