General :: Using Old Droid To Access WiFi

Dec 14, 2011

As I've retired and now on a fixed income, I'm planning to go from smart to dumb and get a basic phone and plan for only voice and text. However, that will leave me with a droid that is disconnected from Verizon. Can I basically then use the phone as a small wi-fi tablet and access the internet and email, not to mention other app?

General :: Cannot Access AC With ForumRunner Or Browser With WiFi

Feb 18, 2013

A couple days ago I had a window pop-up on my SGS3 about WiFi access.

There were 3 web sites listed, but the one that struck me was the one about Android Central.

I don't have a clue how I got the window to open, or even why it did, but the entry for AC said WiFi access to this site was blocked.

Sure enough, I cannot access AC through Forum Runner, but I can get here with Tapatalk 2.I also cannot access it with a browser. Either Chrome or the stock one.

General :: WiFi Access Points Enable Sync

Aug 21, 2013

I moved from Galaxy S4 to Galaxy Note 2.

Everytime I take a new phone, during initial setup it gives me to restore my settings from Google which when I enable I get all my saved wifi-access points.

This time however by mistake I didn't allow Google to restore that data in my Note 2 so now I haven't got any saved WiFi passwords.

I had backup of all user and system data from S4 via titanium backup and I tried to restore WiFi access points in Note2 which wont work (maybe compatibility or something, I don't know)

how can i re-enable or force a re-sync that Google to restore my WiFi access points to my mobile or what can i do to get all my saved WiFi profiles back.

General :: Access Guest WiFi Network Using Own Personal Smartphone

May 17, 2012

My company has a guest Wifi network and a regular employee wifi network that requires a password. I was wondering if I were to access the guest wifi network using my own personal smartphone, what kind of privacy would I have?

Are there any easy apps to encrypt myself while on it? I see SSH Tunnel and Connectbot, but I don't have a server.

Motorola Droid :: BB 7.9 - Wifi Connects But No Internet Access?

Mar 2, 2010

I'm having an odd issue w/Pete's BB 7.9...

I am able connect via WiFi to home network just fine - connects quickly and I get a proper IP.

However, nothing will connect - email, browser, marketplace, etc...

Everything works fine from my laptop on the same wireless network. Never had any issue w/any guest laptops at my home on the network. I don't have mac address filtering or any other settings like that...am using wpa.

Any ideas? Never seen this happen before...previously I've used my phone on wifi from home it worked, but that's been quite a while, can't remember when/which ROM.

Again - I connect fine to my wireless network, get an IP, but when I try to access anything from my phone it acts like I'm not connected. Go back to 3G and all is fine. Tried going back and forth between wifi and 3g, and it behaves the same way each time...appreciate any help.

Now it's working...weird. Didn't change any setting. I was trying another ROM (that wouldn't even boot for me - Chevy has a new 2.1 w/working auto-brightness, mute, keyboard lock) and after flashing back to 7.9 now wifi is working.

General :: Android Fails To Load WiFi Access Login Page

Aug 20, 2010

When I try to connect to my University's network , the my Galaxy S is able to connect JUST fine. However, when I open a browser it says the incoming certificate is not secure and then I have NO INTERNET on any page. It tries to redirect me to the login page for the network but fails to do so with a "communications error" and subsequent no internet access of any sort.

What the network is supposed to do is redirect me to the login page so that I can register the device to the network and login using my university account. My phone can't do that apparently and just sits connected to the network with NO INTERNET connectivity.

This is the university network and the instructions how to get on it for Android devices: [URL] .... I connect to it just fine but am UNABLE to get to that device registration/login page.

This is NOT just for my university. ANY public network which requires me to accept an "agreement" before it lets me have internet access, my phone KILLS ITSELF and CANNOT pull up the agreement page but instead tells me there is no internet. I'm SURE its a software problem or something with settings but can't figure out just what it is.

Just about the only networks I can connect to on Wi-Fi are home networks.

General :: Asus Slider Sl101 - WiFi Connected But No Internet Access (won't Work)

Nov 29, 2013

I have an Asus Slider Sl101. Around 3 days ago, our router had been changes as the previous one wasn't working properly. Our carrier is Charter and our router is Netgear. We hooked every device up to that new router and everything worked fine, including the tablet. But later on in the day,the Internet on there stopped working.

It shows that it's connected, but when I try to access the internet through the browser, it does not work. The blue line at the top of the browser starts up, moves forward a little, and stops entirely while the browser then says "Webpage Not Available". Apps that require Internet, such as Accuweather and my SAT apps, fail to work as well. Other devices that use our wifi include another computer and Nintendo DSi and 3DS. They all work fine. Our router shows that our android is connected to it, as well.

I've tried the static IP stuff, restarted the router, left the wifi off on the tablet for a few hours, and turned it off and off. I even factory resetted it and not even that worked.

Motorola Droid :: Roaming Between Multiple WiFi Access Points With Same SSID?

Nov 7, 2009

Just got my hands on a Droid and now I'm working out some kinks. My iPhone and laptop have no problem roaming aggressively between multiple access points we have at work that share the same SSID. I can't seem to get the Droid to do the same thing. I've tried downloading some wifi scanners, but they don't quite cut it. Is there a setting I'm missing? The expected behavior would be for the Droid to happily associate with any AP that shares a "remembered" SSID. Right now, it requires manually going into settings and associating with each and every AP in order for it to hop automatically as I move around the building.

HTC Incredible :: WiFi Vs 3G Access

Apr 30, 2010

Love my new Incredible.I upgraded from an LG Dare, so one thing I'm trying to figure out is the difference between using WiFi vs 3G access.Am I correct that you always use 3G for making calls, but can use either WiFi or 3G for apps and surfing.I'm assuming leaving WiFi on uses battery, but when I have WiFi access does it drain the battery less than 3G.Also, does the phone decide when to use one vs the other or do I decide if WiFi is available to me?

HTC EVO 4G :: WiFi Vs 3-4G And App Internet Access?

Aug 30, 2010

How exactly do I set up WiFi work most efficiently on my EVO? Does it know to choose the best option for getting to the internet? (WiFi or 3/4G?)

Here's why I ask: I have an app that syncs info between the internet and the phone. When I can't get a signal, it can't sync. Often I have crappy reception at home, one or two bars only (a whole 'nother thread), but I do have a strong wifi signal.

Being a newbie to all this, in my little world, logic assumes that the phone would automatically switch from 3or4G to wifi for the exchange of data (but not for talking). But I think I don't have it right. Can someone explain it to me? And how to best set up my phone to take advantage of the strongest signal for data exchange?

I am developing an application on the android platform. The app performs continues WiFi scan and sends information about the list of visible access points to server.

Android :: Connecting To Strongest WiFi Access Point

Sep 9, 2010

I have two WiFi access points in my house, due to thick walls. When I turn on my phone it searches and connects to the first access point it finds, which is not necessarily the one with the strongest signal. e.g. I have one access point on channel 10 (lounge) and another on channel 1 (bedroom). When I'm in the lounge it always connects to the A/P in the bedroom, unless I actively "forget" that network, even though the signal strength of the one in the bedroom is VERY weak. Is there a way to force it to pick the strongest A/P?

I have a question regarding WiFi setup on my Android. When I'm at home, I want to use manual IP settings for my WiFi (instead of relying on DHCP). However, when I'm out using other WiFi (a coffee shop, or at school) I obviously need DHCP. How do I set manual IP settings on a per-wifi-hotspot basis?

HTC EVO 4G :: WiFi Access Points With Manual Connect Only Option?

Oct 27, 2010

I think this should be simple enough but I haven't found a solution. I would like to leave my WiFi radio on. This way, the phone will automatically connect to certain access points (that I have previously connected to). However, there are certain access points that I would only like the phone to connect to if I elect to manually connect to them. I can't seem to find this setting anywhere. The only two options I have on access points once connected is to Forget network and Change password. I want it to remember those but only connect when I manually tell it to.

Android :: Signal Strength Of Each WiFi Access Points?

Aug 9, 2010

I am building an application reading the signal strength of each available WiFi access point. I've written code like:

wifi = (WifiManager) getSystemService(Context.WIFI_SERVICE);
// Get WiFi status
WifiInfo info = wifi.getConnectionInfo();
textStatus.append(" WiFi Status: " + info.toString());
// List available networks
List<WifiConfiguration> configs = wifi.getConfiguredNetworks();

However, I have two problems:
In debugging, configs only contains one connection. However, I can see that there are several APs available in the system's wifi setting. i.e. configs is an incomplete list. I don't know how to get the signal strength in Wifi Configuration. I am using HTC Hero and Android 1.5.
