Motorola Droid :: Enabling WiFi Whenever Possible?

Jun 28, 2010

If I'm someplace that has WiFi am I better off enabling that whenever I can instead of using 3G even if I have the phone in standby or will that use more battery? I might check my email and facebook, etc., maybe every half hour and I'm wondering if I will save battery life by enabling WiFi or will that eat more battery?

HTC Droid Eris :: Wifi Won't Reconnect Automatically When In Range Or By Enabling Wifi

Sep 8, 2010

It's done this twice now (before and after factory reset). 2.1 OTA, not rooted.

Whenever I turn on the wifi, or I become in range of my WPA2 network, it doesn't always connect. I say "always" because it seems to be random. If I toggle wifi on or off, it doesn't always connect. Sometimes it connects after 30+ seconds. Every other device connects just fine.

The only sure way to get it to connect is to force it to rescan, usually by going to Settings and displaying all SSIDs in range. THEN it connects, always and immediately.

The even sillier thing is, it will alert me of open networks, but never connect to my own saved network.

Motorola Milestone :: Enabling WiFi AdHoc Network Connection On Handset?

Sep 17, 2010

Just picked up an unlocked Milestone and I popped in my prepaid T-Mobile card and I have my home WiFi network bur for data on the go I need to use the 3G connection of my iPad via WiFi. Problem is that the WiFi network it creates is an AdHoc one and as I found Android can't connect to AdHoc networks by default. Standard on WinMp and iOS so what possessed them to do that?

After some digging around I found a guide to enable AdHoc on rooted Androphones How to connect an android phone to your ad-hoc wi-fi network | Wissam Idrissi so I spent a few hours rooting and installing the proper apps. No go though, my AdHoc network does appear in the list with MySSD : "Not in range, remembered" but it never connects. Has anyone managed to connect to an AdHoc network on a Milestone with 2.1?

Motorola Droid : JIT Benchmark / Enabling JIT Is Negatively Impacting Score

Jan 30, 2010

I have a Droid running 2.0.1 (rooted) with 2.1 music, weather and news, gallery, but not launcher. Standard apps plus Home++. I enabled JIT via DroidRootPro and ran some pre and post benchmarks. Note: I am not using any custom ROM or overclocking. Overall the results seem quite promising with pretty substantial gains in most categories.

However, some have me perplexed so i'm hoping someone in this community can clarify it for me. I'm attaching my benchmark scores and you'll notice a few rows have a question mark because i don't understand why enabling JIT is negatively impacting the score. I would appreciate any insight into what JIT does and why it might impact some of the scores, mostly the time to completion ones (time in seconds) and specifically the graphics ones.

P.S. I'm sure there's some better way to attach this sort of thing. I had to size it way down to meet the restrictions. If there's a better way just let me know and i'll redo it.

Motorola Droid :: Wifi Issues After Applying Wifi - On 2.2

Jun 8, 2010

I'm using the latest Wifi Fix and OverClock kernel for 2.2 Froyo, but I'm still having issues randomly disconnecting from the wireless network... The wifi signal shows 0/3 bars even when sitting right in front of the router.

Froyo Overclocked Kernels includes *wifi* fix is where I got my kernel. I've been overclocking to 1200 GHz.

This is where I got my ROM (it was updated today) Download: Newer Motorola Droid Froyo Leak FRF57 | Droid Life: A Motorola Droid Blog

Even under the wireless network now, it says "Disabled, secured with 802.1x EAP"

Motorola Droid X :: 3G Vs WiFi

Aug 12, 2010

Please list to me the benfeits of switching my WiFi on to pick up my wireless network as oppossed to just leaving in the defautl 3G mode. This would be very helpful for me. Specifically I am a bit fuzzy on a couple items:

Does it make the internet faster when wiFi is enabled?
Is it using MORE or less battery power to be left in WiFi connectivity mode? (maybe it uses less battery when surfing the net, but if Im not surfing the net wifi should be off so that both 3G and Wifi are not both draining?)

Is there a way to set my phone to automatically connect to certain WiFi networks when the phone recognizes they are available? (i.e., my home wireless network as oppossed to just getting alerts on EVERY available network?)

Motorola Droid X :: 3G Vs WiFi

Jul 22, 2010

I was told that 3G consume more energy than wifi;so I should use wifi whenever it's available.Is that true?
Now,when the phone is idle (and both 3G & wifi are on),which one will it use?It seems 3G to me b/c when I wake it from sleep, it seems to look for wifi again.So,does that mean I should turn wifi off during idle?Just trying to find a way to juice more out of the X!

Motorola Droid X :: Cant Stop Droid X From Auto Connecting To Wifi

Sep 29, 2010

When I first got my X it allowed me to manually choose to connect to wifi but lately it just auto connects and I cant turn it off if im in a wifi area. This puts a huge drain on my battery. I'd prefer to have the OPTION to connect to wifi if/when i want to and to use the 3G network otherwise. Any idea how I can address this issue? (I did recently install Launcher Pro. Not sure if that has anything to do w/ it but figured id mention it)

Motorola Droid :: Wifi Not Connecting To WPA

Jul 26, 2010

I have a feeling my problem is the router and not my Droid, but I thoght I would try anyway.

I have 2 networks that I conenct to at my work. An open network and a secure one.

The open network, which has weak signal, I have no problem connecting to.
However, when I try to connect to the secure network, which i have great signal, I get "Disabled, secured with WPA/WPA2 PSK". I am positive I have the right password.

The strange part is I have had my Droid for less than 2 weeks. Before I had an Eris and would connect to that network everyday without any problems. But have never been able to connect with my Droid once I dont think anything has changed with that router, but i cant say for sure.

Any ideas as to why the Droid wont connect? Unfortunately, i dont have access to the routers settings. Unless I really had to, i can try to access it early in the morning

Motorola Droid X :: AP WiFi Tethering Possible Yet?

Aug 16, 2010

Just upgraded from DInc to X this week. Rooted - all that fun stuff. Had AP tethering on DInc, I'm still getting adHoc with X even with version 2.0.5-pre 7. Is anyone else getting AP tethering or do we need to wait for the froyo kernal? I had originally thought any phone with the VZW wifi hotspot app had AP tethering capabilities in its kernal already.

Motorola Droid :: Which Wifi-tether Apk To Use - 2.1

Mar 12, 2010

with Bugless Beast's 2.1 build? I'm running BB0.7, and downloaded the pre8.apk from Google. But it said that I don't have the right kernel to support it. It's experimental, I know, and based on Android 2.0. What .apk are you using with 2.1 and do you get any kernel errors with it?

Motorola Droid X :: Update Over Wifi

Jul 20, 2010

I am waiting for my replacement Droid X to arrive (not till Friday or whatever) and I was thinking that maybe the update would fix my slowness? I have already switched back to my old phone but I'm wondering is there a way I can get the update over Wifi so I don't have to put the Droid X back onto my line? If it fixes the issues, I would of course put it back on my line and use it but I want to try the update first..

Motorola Droid :: Wifi Issue

Nov 24, 2009

Ok so I've had the Droid since day one and have been using WIFI only when at my home via my wireless router... Everything working great, speed and all...

Stopped using it for a few days as just really wasn't playing too much with the phone lately and reached for it last night... I hit the WIFI widget I have and....... Nothing...

So I scratch my head and figure maybe the password got erased or something... I check it, it's there... I try to pick up a WIFI from my neighbors and it pops right into WIFI mode...

Try mine again, and nothing... Doesn't even try to switch from 3G to the WIFI symbol...

So I go in and manually try to connect to my router and notice it tries to connect then immediately switches to saying disconnected...

I figure, ok... Must be something with my router itself.. Break out the laptop and jamright into WIFI mode without so much as a hiccup...

Motorola Droid X :: Disable 3G While Using Wifi

Aug 4, 2010

I just received my new Droid X yesterday and so far I'm loving it. I discovered that there are problems with WiFi on many Droid X's and it mostly stems from what type of encryption is being used on the router. My Linksys router was set up with WPA2 Personal with AES encryption. I found out that by changing it to TKIP could alleviate the problem so that's what I did. Now WiFi seems to work just fine. The only thing that bothers me is that whenever WiFi is enabled, it doesn't seem to disable my 3G connection. All of the data is going through the WiFi connection but the 3G icon stays on the notification bar not doing anything. I thought 3G was supposed to be disabled when connected to a WiFi hotspot?
