Sprint HTC Hero :: Connecting To WiFi Router At Home?

Dec 2, 2009

I have no issues connecting to my WiFi router at home, and my other devices use it fine, and with no speed issues. My laptop for instance gets 8-10 mbits or so, but my phone for some reason when I run a speed test, or even browse, I get speeds that are very Ev Do like, 1200ish kbits down, 700 up. I've been connected to wireless routers in other places and get 3500 kbits down and 900ish up, but I'm just curious as to why every other device on my wireless network is fast, yet my Hero is so slow connection wise? Its been this way since day 1, and my router is about 10 feet from my phone at all times, so its not a distance issue.

HTC EVO 4G :: Connecting To Home WiFi Router Using WAP2 Encryption?

Jun 28, 2010

I have a Belkin N router. The hardware version is F5D8236-4 v2 (01). I for the life of me cannot get my EVO 4G to connect to my router. I normally use WPA2 for my encryption. At the suggestion of another member here I tried WPA, then WEP and then I finally shut off all encryption and just opened my network. Nothing worked. My EVO 4G just simply refuses to connect. As an experiment, I finally tried to connect to a friends 2Wire AT&T wireless router which was WEP encrypted and it worked the first try.

HTC Hero :: WiFi - No Connection With Home Router

Aug 1, 2009

There appears to be an issue with my Hero-router WiFi connection. Has anyone had similar experiences or have any advice? My Hero can generally see my home wireless router and report a good signal, though the visibility can drop out (when my other devices are still happily connected). It can also see my neighbors' networks, so it isn't a range issue.

For the most part, the Hero just doesn't seem to want to connect. If I reboot the router it will connect briefly for a couple of secs. I've tried altering a few of the router broadcast settings, trying b-only/ g-only/ b+g, but this hasn't helped (n isn't available, but I understand the Hero to be g anyway). I haven't yet been to another WiFi area, to check if it will connect to other networks. My suspicion is it is a specific compatibility issue with my router (Zoom).

Sprint HTC Hero :: Sprint Hero WiFi Interfering W/WiFi Router

Dec 19, 2009

Wife and I each have new Sprint HTC Hero. We also have a home wifi network using an older (pre-802.11n) Apple Airport Extreme base station as WDS main and an old Apple Airport Express as a WDS remote. When we're home we tend to turn on our phone's wifi.

As long as only one phone has wifi turned on, everything is fine. But within minutes of turning on wifi on the second phone as well, our wifi router starts to lose it. Apparent massive interference. After a few more minutes the router becomes catatonic, so much so that Airport Utility cannot even see the router at all.

A power cycle of the router fixes things for at most a few minutes, then it rapidly goes downhill again. Turning off the wifi on one phone (doesn't seem to matter which one) and power-cycling the router brings back perfect sanity until the next time wifi on both phones is turned on.

I have neither the time nor the energy to go through the inevitable denials and mutual finger-pointing with Apple and Sprint, but I thought I would make note of it here for the benefit of the community.

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?

HTC Desire :: Stopped Connecting To Wifi Automatically At Home

Oct 5, 2010

This used to work seamlessly but since the 2.2 update.Whenever i arrive home from work i turn wifi on and all connects well. If i then leave the house and return the wi-fi fails to reconnect automatically. This has only happened since i carried out the update and noticed someone else on another thread has exactly the same problem on vodafone eforum. Is there a solution? Currently i need to turn wi-fi off and back on again and it works, not the end of the world but a pain since it used to work so well! I've tried y5 to try and force it, to no avail and carried out a reset (not full factory just remove battery etc).

HTC Hero :: Wifi Problems With New Router

Aug 19, 2009

I'm having a wifi issue with my Hero since I upgraded my router, It will work for a few minutes and then although the router signal says good and Wifi Analyser on the Hero can see the it I get no data coming through.

This is only a recent development though as I upgraded from a Linksys WRT54G (running Tomato firmware) router to a Linksys WRT160NL (which is Wirless-N on standard latest firmware for now), now I know that the Hero doesn't support N but the router is set to mixed mode as I have more G devices than N in my house so it should still work fine.

Never had a single lost connection on my WRT54G but I'd rather not downgrade again.

HTC Hero :: Won't Connect To Router Via WiFi

Aug 31, 2009

My HTC Hero can detect my router, but when I try and connect nothing happens. The dialogue box pops up asking for the WEP key, I put it in but nothing happens.

The router and phones wifi works though because I have another pc connected through wifi and I went to mcdonalds and it managed to connect to their hotspot.

Ive tried 64bit wep, 128bit wep, wpa/wpa2, ive also tried it disabled along with the routers firewall disabled but nothing seems to work. My router is a Belkin F5D8636-4

Samsung Moment :: Connecting To Router

Dec 16, 2009

Actually I have a few things I need help with, and I've checked the other threads & google and havent found much either, so here goes:

1) Have anybody tried to connect their moment to their router? I just received my moment maybe 2 days ago, and I have a DLINK WBR-2310 router. its b/g mode (turbo) wpa password/tkip. I havent tried switching between wep, aes, wpa2, no password (open connection), but it appears others who have the HERO has tried all of that, and there have been a very few hits and a ton of misses, so i was hoping that someone here has done this already or may have a solution before i start to wreck my brain trouble shooting.

Changed the WIRELESS SECURITY MODE settings then changed the encryption and authentication to AES and WPA2.

Only problem now is, market doesnt seem to allow me to download anything, but I can still browse the web. Im also getting EXCELLENT CONNECTION.

OK, SCRATCH ^^^^^. Now, everything is working. I just disconnected and reconnected to my WIFI and Im getting an INSANELY 13,320 kbps DL & 1024 kbps UL. I think im going to need some 1040 motor oil to loosen my hands from the M0M3NT now, lol

I really wish there was a way to copy the results & post them here!

2) How do you save things to your SD CARD? I've looked at darn near everything and cannot figure this out! In fact, I dont even see how to even access your SD CARD to start with. I see that you can load wall papers from SD, but no direct way to go to SD card itself.

3) Are you guys (who gets over 12 hrs of batt life) putting your phone in sleep mode quite a bit? Im actually trying to figure out what will work for me.

If setting my display to 10%, leaving it on the entire while, leaving all other things off such as gps, wifi, (no blue tooth dev yet) and then doing a .5a (comp) charge vs a .7a (wall) charge after a full drain, and seeing which one actually holds a longer charge, and then setting everything to MAX & ON and repeating the charging, just to see what I will be comfortable with. I will post results here as well!

4) Has anyone figured out how to put the phone to sleep while on call so that you dont accidently hit other button with your face?

5) Where do I find the tools to back up my entire phone in its factory state, incase I do start to tinker around with rooting? Also, does rooting void your warranty?

6) I forgot my other questions, and will edit this post when I remember them.

**************DISCOVERED SO FAR**************************************

Charging time w/ wall charger (while screen on)......... about an AWFULLY SLOW 2.5 hours!

I started charging today at 2:30p EXACTLY. At 4:30 it was 80%. At 4:55 its at 90%, and Im guessing it will be completely charged by 5:20pm. So every 15 mins or so is an additional 10% charge. Since it takes this long, I think it should easily give you at least 66% or 7.5 hrs talk time.

Which raises another question, if they advertise to get about 5 hrs of talk time, and im assuming that includes the phone screen being off since its pressed to your face (saving battery), OR, worst case scenario, you are using BLUE TOOTH which put extra drain on the battery, this is RIDICULOUS in comparison of charging:talk time ratio! Still a GREAT PHONE tho, just wanted to CONFIRM that!

My next test will be the following:
1) How fast it charges being turned off?

2) Which charge actually last longer? .5a (comp) vs .7a (wall)

3) Stand by time with screen both on & off!

4) All settings on MAX, then again with all settings on MIN

5) Cant remember the other things I planned to test, will edit when I remember, __________________________________________________ ______________________________

Something that I Noticed, when you first power up your phone, you have about 55 mb of Ram. When u turn off NFL bloatware, it actually reduces your ram instead of increasing it, down to 48. I wonder why that is?

Sprint HTC Hero : Wireless Tether - How To Block Others From Connecting

Most of us probably use wireless tether when away from home, in a public place. Since wireless tether on the Hero doesn't support WEP, how do you prevent others from connecting to your hotspot? I was running wireless tether and somebody jumped onto the network and I didn't know how to boot him/her off.

Motorola Droid X :: Way To Connect Router At Home?

Jul 22, 2010

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.

HTC Desire :: Wifi And Router

Apr 21, 2010

I have a ZyXEL P-2602HW-D1A Router with the following settings:

- SSID hidden: No
- Channel: 6
- Security: Static 128-bit WEP
- Firmware: V3.40(AJQ.4) | 07/14/2008

These settings are defined my the company I work for. My router works fine with both desktop and labtop computers however my various mobile phones are the WIFI issue. I've tried to use both a Samsung i8910 and a HTC Desire where I experience that the phones can connect and many download data for a short while. But here after the connection is very slow, the lag time is up to many minutes or the phone and router just disconnects. But when I use my mobile phones with all other WIFI routers they work fine!
