Default [Q] Wifi stopped working

Hi!

I'm from Portugal and I have a Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman and just recently rooted it. It was running Android 2. and I flashed it to Cyanogenmod's Coconut (9.1.0).

I had been using the wifi connection with no problems until recently it just won't connect, to any wifi. I've been abroad and back and it doesn't work anywhere. It appears to get stuck on a loop trying to "get the IP address...". I also noticed as soon as it tries to connect the connection appears as "low" and with only one bar, even though it was previously listed with full bars. After a few tries it gives up and lists the wifi address as "Avoided poor network connection".

I don't remember changing any configurations so I can't work out a reason for this to be happening. Can anyone please help? Is there something I can/should do?

Thanks!

there should be advance setting on the wifi setting submenu, probably got soft button to press on bottom or need to press menu key (can't remember exactly), either way, untick "avoid poor wifi network" on the advance setting.

Hi! Thanks for the quick reply

Unfortunately I can't find any "avoid poor wifi network" on the advanced settings menu. I attached a photo of that menu here. I'm sorry it's in portuguese but maybe it gives you an idea of what's in there.

That problem happened to me when I install this Rom but didn't fond the fix so I changed the Rom
