Default WiFi?

Hi,

Why am I getting this notification for the 1st time in approx 2 months that have got a OPO, despite that am connected to WiFi?

Hoping to hear from you experts.

Thanks.

This sort of thing normally pops up when the WiFi network wants you to go to some sort of page, this is usually for a login to free WiFi hotspots, I assume this Dlink is your WiFi? Perhaps it wants you to open this page to change a configuration or login. This doesn't seem to be Android related at all but more to do with your router, could you try tapping on the notification and screenshot the page it opens, if any.

He's right. This looks like a router setting that you might have turned on like guest mode.

Thanks for replying, appreciate your expert views.

DLink is my WiFi and not a hotspot WiFi, never occurred earlier.

When I tap on it, G chrome takes me to 173.194.35.96/generate _204

Google results of this IP......173.194.35.96 which is Spy-IP.com

and Google has different results for this 173.194.35.96/generate _204

It never happened earlier in the past 2 months.

Been using the same OPO and same WiFi.

Any solutions to resolve it?

Thanks again and Best regards!

Like WPS or WiFi ON/OFF on the router?

This is a router setting then, that page is some sort of login. Perhaps guest mode has been enabled on your router? Try this:

Settings>Wi-Fi>Modify Network>Show advanced options> Change DHCP to Static. Here, find the box that says Gateway and note the IP here. Now change Static back to DHCP and close this menu.

Go into the browser on your OPO and put in this Gateway IP, this will take you to the router config. The login for this is usually on the bottom of the router, otherwise the default can be found by searching the router model number, try finding a guest mode setting and turning it off - I really don't know... You can also change your WiFi name and password here if you like ;)

I can't really help you any more than that.

Glad to hear, I am strongly advising against the factory restore. This is a feature of Android, although it is strange for it to be happening in this circumstance there is nothing it will achieve.

1. Changed router's password.

2. Guests mode is Off.

3. All apps working with WiFi except GMail and GPS.

4. Still see the notification.

5. Should WPS be Enabled, it is disabled at the moment?

6. You don't recommend a factory reset what about a re flash of 30 OR?

Thanks.
