HTC Incredible :: Activate Wifi Via Power Widget Doesn't Connect To Router
May 28, 2010
If I activate wifi via the power widget, wifi does turn on, but doesn't connect to my router. If I go to Wireless & Networks in the settings and click Wi-Fi settings, I see it shows my router there and says "not in range, remembered" initially, but as soon as that page comes up, it connects. Why is it only connecting after I go to the settings?
Very often I can't connect my HTC Magic to WiFi ruuter, although my MacBook connects to WiFi without any problems. In WI-FI networks I see: "Connection unsuccessful, select to try again" How can I debug this problem, there should be logs stored somewhere.
My legend cant connect to the router at our home. It keeps asking for the password. When I type it en press connect it only gives a notion that it can't connect to the network. I have tried standing next to it or a couple of feet away but it doesn't work.
What is a good app to connect two devices using wifi without a router? Just to share pics, vids, and files. I have a Bionic (4.1.2) and a Polaroid PMID705X (4.0.4, wifi only) tablet I'm wanting to do this with
I have a factory unlocked HTC Desire with the official 2.2 froyo firmware installed. When I turn on the wifi using the inbuilt HTC wifi widget, it takes about 10-15 seconds before the phone connects to my wifi router and the wifi icon is shown in the notification bar. I am using a Dlink dir-655 router. The settings that I have on the router are as follows:-
wireless mode: 802.11g only encryption: wpa2 personal AES mac filtering on (phone's mac address has been added to the list) SSID is hidden
Other devices such as my laptop and nintendo wii connect to the wifi router within seconds.
My Droid X won't connect to my Linksys router properly. I have it WPA encrypted but when I go to connect to it with my phone it shows the phone is seeing it as a WEP encryption. I tried manually changing it but it seems like that messes with it even more. I prefer not to change the encryption to WEP because of it's flaws and can easily be hacked. Maybe is there something I need to do to get my Droid to pick it up right?
I'm new to the forum and to Android. Last week I replaced my Palm Centro with the new AT&T Xperria X10. About a week before the new cell phone arrived, I replaced our old Netgear wireless router with a new Cisco-Linksys E2000 router. All was well, except my daughter's PC (XP Home) and my other daughter's laptop (Vista), could not connect to the router. Got the new X10, and it connected without any problem.
Then - trying to get the other two computers to connect, I changed the 801.b security from WAP2 Personal to WEP Shared (One of them has an old Linksys wireless adapter that won't allow anything but WEP). Then my daughters were both able to connect, but not the Xperia. I have tried everything I can think of - no success. I changed the router security mode to disabled, and I could not connect. I changed the Xperia to Static IP - no connection. I entered the password in both ASCII text and HEX, neither succeeded.
after changing some router settings (like the number of the channel) my SGS2 on 4.0.3 ICS doesn't connect anymore. WiFi itself is working fine, except the AP of the router i changed. Deleting all AP information and reentering all WPA2 data will change nothing. In my eyes the phone is not forgetting AP data completely when you try to delete an AP entry.
Okay, so I am totally going to be new to the android phone. I am so excited! I have a question, and fear it may be a stupid one, but will ask anyway! Do I need a wireless router for my Droid Incredible to connect to Internet? Or will the phone connect to the Internet like my LG Dare already does (click on icon and it goes to Internet)? Or can I connect both ways? Do you know what I mean? I am supposing that that if I had a wireless router, that would allow me wifi connection. Is that faster than just using the phone on its own?
Our PC's are wired but want to get a wireless router to use wifi on the incredible around the house, its a large house so I understand "N" is advised. but I am looking for suggestions.o far I am leaning towards.TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND Ultimate wireless N Gigabit Router, Atheros, 3T3R, 2.4GHz, 802.11n Draft 2.0, 802.11g/b, Built-in 4-port Gigabit Switch, with 3 detachable antennas from mwave.com, I am looking for suggestions.
When I am at home my signal service isn't great so I usually switch to WiFi. I'll get the "WiFi Networks Available" toolbar notice, select my home network, but then nothing happens, and it doesn't connect. When my home network is listed under the WiFi setting menu, the radio signal Icon says it has solid signal strength, but still, after I hit "Connect" nothing happens. Thus, I get stuck using 3G when WiFi capabilities were one of my main attractions to the phone :S. Again, the WiFi was fully functional (Outlook Exchange included) until recently.
Has anyone else noticed that when they turn WiFi on through the widget (either android or motorola one) it doesn't always actually turn on wireless?
I usually have to go to WiFi settings and then once I do that it connects to my router. This will keep happening until I restart the phone and then the widget will work another 1-2 times and then I'll have to go into the settings menu until I restart again.
Unrelated: Has anyone else had their 3G dropout today or is it just me? I'm in the northeast.
Searched all over the forums and internet for an answer but came up blank.I downloaded an app called power control and installed it. It screwed up my contact list so I wanted to uninstall it. Not just remove it from my desktop, but full uninstall is what I'm after.Did a search for it in the android market and could not find it anywhere again to uninstall it that way. Tried using Astro File Manager to uninstall but does not show up there.The only place it shows up on my phone is in the bottom menu bar ( menu, phone, + ) I hit + -----> widgets ------> power control. Anybody have an ideas on how to uninstall this thing ?
What I would like to do is to connect my hero to the net but without using wifi or 3g as the cost would be to expensive. So is it possible to connect it directly to a router some way or another. The reason for asking is that I'm going on holiday soon and staying were there isnt any wifi but there is a router but i dont want to take my laptop. any chance of this working or not.
The "automatic" brightness setting sucks. It doesn't detect high light situations, like being outdoors. To get the proper brightness you need to use the power control widget to set the brightness up to see it in sunlight. Not a big deal, but after using the widget you either have to manually reset it to automatic in the settings, turn the brightness off or on high. Its just kind of annoying. When your in sunlight without the brightness up to the highest level I can see nothing on the phone. Literally the screen appears to be off. Is this just my phone, or does the incredible really not sense high light situations.
Is it possible to pull the power control widget from cm6 to use in other roms? I dug around in cm6 for a bit thinking it was as simple as pulling the apk and installing in a new rom but I think I was mistaken because I can't seem to find it. Can it be done and if so, can somebody point me in the right direction (or just do it if it's easy enough )?
Does anyone know of a power control widget that has a reliable 3G toggle? I know that there is the singular one that come with Sense but I am trying Launcher Pro and really need that functionality. You would think that if HTC can make one another developer could do it too.....
I've just moved house and got a new internet connection. Formerly my Magic was connected to my wireless router and all was well. It still connects to wifi hotspots etc. but it just can't see the new one. Two laptops and one notebook all work, as does my wife's iPhone. I'm not sure where to start looking. I can get into the router and mess about with the wireless settings if necessary.In particular, these look interesting. Currently set to the defaults: Code...
I have been using wi-fi for some time now and now when I connect to my router, I cannot get any data connection. For example, if I am using last.FM and I turn on my wi-fi, I get an error that the app can no longer connect to the last.FM servers. If I turn off wi-fi, it starts working immediately. Same thing with the Internet.
I switched my isp, and they gave me a wireless router+modem (dlink dsl-2540b) preconfigured. i can connect my both computers and ipod, but my xperia x10 wont connect to it. and im still able to connect @ work, and with my old router. its a thing between the phone and the new router only....
How do I connect to my router at home? I assume its for the best to do when I am at home (better battery life, faster, etc.) but I can't get it to connect. I have a 2wire router and the only time I've ever used the wireless Internet is with my buddies xbox 360. All we had to do there is type in the number code that was on the bottom of the router. When I type this code in on the Droid X it looks for an IP address but is unsuccessful, even when I am sitting right next to it. Does anyone now how I can get this to work? I probably left out info you need to help me too, so if you need anything just ask.
So today i left the iphone world and got a HTC ONE, i like the phone so far but I can not get my phone to connect to my wireless network, I see the network but when i enter the password it tells me the password is incorrect, the password IS correct and I have even changed the password 2 times to try and connect. on the phone it cycles through authentication and connecting three times then it tells me its not the correct password. I went to a friends house and connected to his in one second.
I cannot connect to the wifi network in my house. I can easily connect to the wifi at my work when I type in the password, but when I try the WEP key at my house it still says disconnected. It shows my network and says "Remembered, secured with WEP" if I hit connect nothing happens. I tried "forget" and then connecting again, making sure my wep key is correct, and still no luck.
For some reason the other day when i came home from class my phone wouldnt connect to the wifi i have set up in mt apartment. it just says it obtaining the ip address and scanning for wifi but when i enter my passowrd for the network it still doesnt work.
I have two wifi locations set up on my inc as preferred. It used to automatically connect to which ever of those two it saw as soon as I turned on WiFI with my widget. Now i have to physically go into "settings -> wireless and networks" and then it sees the network and connects. Is there a setting somewhere I changed or something to get it to auto-connect again?
