Unhappy Problems with WiFi nexus 5

I am trying in all ways. But I do not understand why do not you connect to wifi most of my house. The PC is connected, the PS3 also. But my nexus 5 no! I formatted several times putting the stock and also the custom rom. But the problem persists!

What do you recommend?

First, reboot your router and modem, and after that, reboot your phone completely. It may be as simple as that.

also, try disabling / re-enabling the pc's network access, (if it's windows vista / 7 up) i noticed this OS has a way of locking the network where other devices can't gain an IP addy.. especially if it's been on for a long period of time.


i had a vista laptop in my home which was in the corner connected to wifi i rarely turn it off, i got home one day & tried to connect my linux laptop & couldn't exstablish a connection, right wpa password & the works;

even rebooted the router & still...

i went into the basement where that laptop was, & rebooted it, then went back upstairs to my regular laptop, & gained a IP addy..

Can your phone not find it? Or not connect to it?

If it can't find it, try above.

If it can't connect, maybe the WEP Key has changed?

As he said his PS3 and his PC connects to WIFI so his N5 is the problem
Go into WIFI settings by pressing the WIFI symbol in the statusbar then press the three dots at the right corner on bottom, choose advanced and change the WFI frequency band just try the differnt settings you can make this may helps you to solve your problem

My N5 won't scan for WiFi networks. I have to type them in manually :/
