HTC Incredible :: Network Extender - Not Connecting

Jun 3, 2010

We have really bad signal at our place, so we had to buy a network extender, which did a great job.

We recently got Incredibles. On the network extender, when you make a call, it will beep twice to tell you you're connected on it. Which it's still been doing with our new phones.

However, when I was away from home this week, I noticed the incredible still beeps for every call. So I'm wondering if it's even connecting to the extender? We keep getting the infamous reboot at home, so that'd make me think it's not connecting to the extender because our bars are still at 0-1 and we keep rebooting at home. I didn't reboot once in 50 some hours with being away. I usually don't make it to 12 hours while home.

Do I have to do something to set up a new phone? I was positive all I did last time was enter in the phone number.

HTC Incredible :: Use EVRC B With Network Extender

Jul 30, 2010

I had been pulling my hair out trying to figure out why my Incredible wouldn't work with the network extender I recently bought. Hightech answered and solved my problem. When on EVRC B, I saw better signal and could receive calls, but could not make calls. When talking with VZW tech support I asked if using the EVRC B would affect that. He was a little miffed and said you shouldn't be into that section of the phone. I switched to plain EVRC, but forgot that there were three settings I had changed to EVRC B; Home Page, Home Orig, and Roam Orig. If any of these are set to the "B" option, you will not be able to make calls. Also after you change the EVRC settings, make sure to press the Menu button just under the touchscreen and press commit change or commit modification to make sure it accepts the change.

UPDATE: After a message from dsauch I did a little experimenting. Home Page and Home Orig CAN be set to EVRC B, but Roam Orig can NOT be set to EVRC B for the network extender to work. Thanks dsauch for that info. When I was trying to get the network extender to work, I believe my Home Orig and Roam Orig were still set to the B option. I could've tried all different variations of EVRC/EVRC B to get the NE to work, but I just wanted to be able to dial out. So again, if you want to use EVRC B and a network extender, make sure that Roam Orig is set to EVRC (not EVRC B). Home Page and Home Orig can be set either way.

HTC Incredible :: Network Extender For Poor Signals

Apr 29, 2010

Does anybody have experience with network extenders? Would it help preserve battery life in poor signal areas?

Also, has anybody used Sprint's Airave network extender? I get terrible service here in college, but back home (Suburban Chicago) Sprint has great 3G and even WiMax. My 2-year with Sprint is up in October, and with the EVO 4g coming out (+WiMax back home) I was wondering if an Airave would help my reception woes during the school year.

HTC Incredible :: Network Extender Missing Calls

May 1, 2010

Background:

Poor Service inside home w/ my BBerry Curve 8330 pushed me to get a Verizon Network Extender. It DRAMATICALLY improved coverage and never dropped a call after it (except when leaving/coming into range of Network Extender (NE)

Now i've got the Droid Inc and have been noticing an unsettling trend:

When connected to the NE, i have missed at least 2 calls (that i know of only because they left vmails) in the last 2 days since having the phone. No entry in the call history.

I'm wondering if anyone else is experiencing this?

As far as the NE itself goes, i wouldnt be able to do business or make calls from my home/home office without it. I dropped calls from my BBerry so much that i almost left Verizon because of it. The NE changed everything.

It was a little bit of a pain to set up but after it's connected it just works. It does NOT improve data service (3G) but with WiFi it doesnt matter.

HTC Incredible :: Network Extender Don't Play Nice

Jul 29, 2010

I received the 2 network extenders I ordered today, hooked them up, waited for the gps to find itself, and then nothing. Talked with tech support and they said you needed at least 300kb up & down (my dsl was 810 down & 216 up). So I talked to my isp, and for $10 raised my speeds to around 1400kb down and 760kb up. I cycled power to the network extender and still no go!

Spent and hour with VZW tech support and found that a family member's Moto W385 (Moto feature flip phone) could connect just fine, but not my Incredible. Tried it with the second network extender and same results. The tech issued me a trouble ticket and tey will get back to me. He closed the call saying there was probably something wrong with my Incredible.

My questions are does anyone have both an Incredible and a network extender? Do yours work or did you have similar issues? If so how were they, or were they resolved?

Motorola Droid X :: Network Extender / Booster

Sep 19, 2010

While I've never dropped a call and I alway have 3G I always have either zero or one bar of signal showing. And my battery hits yellow midday with fairly light usage. Compared to my old house about 2 miles away (just moved last week) I would have full bars and my batter would last 16hrs before hitting yellow. So I think I need a network booster. First, do they actually work? Second, if so what is a good recommendation. Third, do they boost boost data evdo signal too or just voice?

Motorola Droid :: Factory Reset And Network Extender

Nov 19, 2009

I decided to perform a factory reset on my Droid the other day simply because I was having a contact sync issue. I was having the problem where changes in Gmail would sync to the phone but changes/adds/removes on the phone wouldn't sync back to Gmail. Sync records on the phone showed it was days since the last successful sync. So I cleaned up my contacts on Gmail and did a factory reset on the phone. When I tried to activate, it failed to program the phone. I tried it numerous times and did options 1, 2 and 3, all failed.

To make a long story short for now, I believe my problem had to do with a neighbor having a VZW Network Extender. After googling for a few things I noticed someone who talked about problems activating with a network extender. They mentioned after dialing you get a two note beep when the call connects. I noticed this while at home but wasn't entirely sure. I read about this while at work so I made a call while there and noticed no beep. Once I got home sure enough, a two tone beep. So hopefully this helps others considering I wasted over an hour on the phone with VZW Customer Service. Although I will admit, I had a human on the phone within a couple of minutes, they were really polite and never did any cold transfers. VZW had me do a hard reset and a manual activation. Process is listed below................

HTC Desire :: Connecting To A AD HOC Wi-Fi Network

Sep 9, 2010

Is there any app or ROM that has been modified to allow for connection to a PC generated Ad Hoc network to allow the phone to use the PC's internet connection? Sometimes called reverse tehtering (through wifi, not usb) or an app that allows USB reverse tethering?I have found several posts that have bits and pieces of the how-to using ADB push/pull of various WIFI related files, but nothing with enough detail for me to figure out.

HTC Desire :: Mobile Network Not Connecting

Jul 31, 2010

Basically I was at work today, the reception was okay and I wanted to go on the net. When I tried to turn mobile network on (I normally keep it off to save battery), it just said "connecting" in the dark silver colour and that was it. It didn't turn on at all, until I turned the phone off completely and then the mobile network was on when the phone was re-started. It happened to me twice that day.

What do I need to do to connect my DHD to the home network so I can exchange files with my network drive without involving my computer?Do I need to set up a VPN?

General :: Connecting To Mobile Network / 4G

Dec 13, 2013

I have been struggling to make phone calls/send texts/go online without turning on WiFi. My phone rarely connects to the 4G network that I know is strong , because my dad's identical Galaxy S3 is quick to connect to it. My phone rarely connects to Edge either now. When I go into the "Search Mobile Networks" tab my phone just keeps searching and searching... and searching. I thought I had the solution a moment ago when I turned on and off Airplane Mode. My phone connected to 4G for a moment and I was able to send one text, but then it dropped back into nothingness. In addition, it takes nearly 30 seconds to switch into airplane mode after I select it.It's not the sim card because I tried it on a different phone and it works fine. My dad's a cynic when it comes to rooting and he's saying it might be because I rooted my phone, but this issue started two to three weeks after I rooted... is rooting a potential cause?

HTC EVO 4G :: Trouble Connecting To Public WiFi Network

Jun 10, 2010

This is my first Android phone so I might just not know what I am doing. At work we have an open wi-fi network for patients and visitors to connect to. When they connect for the first time they are automatically re-directed to a sign on page where they must provide their e-mail address. After that they are free to use wireless internet services. My EVO will not re-direct to the page. When I tried it on a friends iPhone it worked just fine. My phone has not been rooted and i have tried both the default browser and two that I downloaded from the market. The phone is connecting to the WiFi and getting a strong signal.

HTC Droid Eris :: Mobile Network Not Connecting

Dec 1, 2009

I had installed the "quick settings" app that was mentioned in another thread. When I tried to open it this morning to turn on the mobile network (I usually keep it off at home), a message popped up saying the application was not updated properly and it needed to be removed and reinstalled. I tried to go to settings>wireless controls to turn on the mobile network but that isn't working either. When I look at the button to turn on the mobile network in the settings, it says "standby to connect to mobile network", I click it, it goes away and says "connect to internet" but when I click it again it just tries and then stops after a minute or so. I removed the quick settings app and restarted the phone, but that didn't help.This happened once before and I just connected to WiFi and reinstalled the quick settings app, but now I'm somewhere where I don't have WiFi access. If it matters, I also have a shortcut button installed to turn the mobile network on and off, but that isn't doing anything either. Any suggestions?

Sprint HTC Hero :: Connecting To WiFi Network

Jul 1, 2010

At the office, we have a high-speed reliable WiFi network.I don't have problems connecting to it with my macbook and iPod Touch.On my Android phone, I use the toggle switch to turn on/off WiFi to save battery power.My frustration is as follows:* When I use the WiFi setting to check the box to turn on WiFi, it shows that it's available with a strong connection.* It shows "Obtaining address" for a long time period and often fails to actually connect.Status - Obtaining IP address from XXXXX Pulbic WiFi Access and it just sits there with the word "Obtaining..." forever it seems. Sometimes, or often, I can't even get it to connect.Does anyone else have this problem connecting to a strong WiFi network from their device?Suggestions on resolving this matter?

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: X10 Not Connecting To Hidden Network

Jul 5, 2010

So, There is an issue with my X10. We have a secure (password protected) wireless network at home which is hidden. Now the weird thing is that the x10 doesn't connect to it. When I get a new wireless device, I get the MAC address of the device, and copy it into the wireless manager, so that it's allowed to access the network. Then, i register the same MAC address into the list of machines on the network. Then I set the network to broadcast the SSID, it's still protected, but now everyone can see that it's there. Afterward, I plug the password into the device, and it's connected. Lastly, I stop broadcasting of the SSID, but the machine that was recently added now recognises the network, even though it's hidden. Even after the device has been disconnected, it will still see the network, and be able to connect to it. The weird thing, is that I have done this for all of the wireless devices, even the X10. Everything is fine, until I make the network hidden again. Then, even though the network is saved, it says "out of range".this has only happened with the X10. Does anyone have any insight as to what the problem may be?

HTC EVO 4G : Not Connecting To Secured Wireless Network - Wpa Wap2 Tkip

Jun 6, 2010

Here's my issue- At home, I am having trouble connecting to my secured wireless network (wpa, wap2, tkip) on my EVO. The EVO will show my network, but it won't seem to connect. I've tried restarting my Belkin wireless router, rescanning for networks on my EVO, and making sure I'm entering the correct pasword. Nothing seems to work. But, when I go to my girlfriend's house, I can connect to her unsecured wireless network. I'm thinking it may be the my router's security settings. Even though I have a strong 4G signal in my house, I still like to have the option to use my WiFi network from time to time.

Any thoughts?

Just to give it another try, I disabled my router security and even uninstalled WiFi finder...all of which did not work in establishing a connection. I'm starting to think it's my Belkin router. The only thing though, is that it played well with my Blackberry 8900.

Android :: Connecting To A Wireless Network Which Redirects To A Login Page

Jul 13, 2010

I need to connect to an institutional wireless network whose only security is achieved thanks to a login webpage. Once I'm connected to the wireless network, the first thing that I can do is to go to the login webpage. The problem is that most applications do not support this kind of login procedure, and therefore find no internet access (`connection problem' is written on my screen when I want to use the wireless network for surfing). Is there a workaround to this.

Anyone have a problem connecting to a network with a hidden SSID? My wife can connect to our router fine with her Droid INc (wireless N router). But i can't unless i enable broadcasting the SSID. I found the hidden SSID enabler app, and going to try that. If that doesn't work does anyone else have any ideas? If i enable SSID broadcast i connect right away. If i disable it, i lose the connection and it is "out of range". Very annoying as i live in a condo unit with 10 other wifi networks in my range. Would like to keep my netwrok as private as possible.

Android :: OS Push Information About Network Connecting Status To Application?

But I can't find reverse cases.)However, I am thinking android OS may push network connecting status to applications.when application is installed on android os, is it possible to register something for monitoring phone's network status on android os.Because I want my application can receive phone's network status from android os.(not by asking directly to android os.) It means: when phone's network status changes, does android os automatically informs phone's network status to application?I'm sorry my English writing is bad TT;

HTC Magic :: "A Network Error Has Occurred" / Stopped Connecting

Jul 15, 2009

Until two days ago, my magic connected to my home wifi fine. Suddenly, it stopped connecting. It does show the wifi icon as if it IS connected, but whenever I open up the browser, or the market, or meebo etc. it acts as if it's not online. The market, for example, tells me that "A network error has occurred."Curiously, I do still get gmail notifications (I don't think that happened through my provider today, cause I'm on pay-as-you-go and all out of cash). My router is an awful BThomehub 2.0 which I can't change for a number of stupid reasons. I tried changing the channel on the router but no luck. Whenever I try to connect through using WeFi Connect, it tells me that it can't verify the connection. The only two apps I have which can fiddle with the wifi settings are the wifi on/off gadget and the aforementioned WeFi Connect, both of which I had when my wifi was still functional. Once again, I did not change any settings at all either on the router or the magic when my wifi stopped working properly.
