Default WiFi reconnect troubles(802.1x PEAP and WPA2) and delayed WhatsApp messages on CM11

Hi all,
I have two annoying problems with my OneS using Cm11.

First problem is that my WiFi has reconnect problems.
I have two WiFi networks I often connect to. One at home (WPA2) and the one at my University (802.1x PEAP).
The problem is as follows:
When I get home from University and had my phone connected to the Universitys WiFi the phone doesn't reconnect to my home network.
Trying to reconnect "manually" via WiFi menu doesn't work either. The network(s) is/are listed, when I try to connect the text shortly(not even a second, more like a flash) changes from "saved..." to "connecting...". Deleting and readding the network is not helping either. Couldn't connect to the WiFI at my parents yesterday either (also WPA2).
Only way to solve this is to reboot the phone.
Vice versa the problem doesn't exist. When I get to University the phone automatically connects to the WiFi.

Radio is 1.11.50.05.28_10.27.50.08L. Is that the correct Radio being from Germany using T-Mobile network?

Second problem is that WhatsApp messages are delayed while I am connect via WiFi. On 3G the messages arrive instantly.
WiFi is always on.WiFi optimisation is off.
I've read that delayed WA messages are pretty common, but the majority has the problem both with WiFi and 3G.

Few days ago I wiped System, data, android_secure and the caches and installed the latest nightly and latest pa-gapps to see if that helps. But it didn't.


Hope someone can help.
Thanks

I have a similar situation, WPA2 802.1x at my university, WPA2 at home and other locations.
My radio is 1.15.50.05.29
I periodically flashed the latest nightly and somehow it feels like wifi has degraded from version to version.

I can initate a connection, often I get a "authenticating...", sometimes a "obtaining IP Address...", but it just won't connect.
Once I got "Avoided poor internet connection" despite being close to the AP.

I just flashed the 20140309 nightly a few hours ago and it seems like I lost wifi entirely, not even rebooting will help.
I will try to make a clean install, but I doubt it will change anything, it didn't help before... :/

Hey,
can you give some feedback after your clean install?
I haven't tried a clean install with cm11, just flashed it over 10.2.


Is eduroam your university network, too?

Cheers.

Update:
Installed a different ROM yesterday (ViperOne S 3.1.0), but the wifi still isn't connecting when I arrive at home and was connected to my universitys wifi previously.
In ViperOne S I "hot-rebooted (restarts the shell)" and could connect to my home wifi again.

Now I really don't know what's causing this problem.
If it is existing with two different ROMs could my router be the problem?
It is a Speedport W723V, got it from my ISP. WIFI Analyzer says it's made by Arcadyan.

Help

Hi,
flashed CM11 back 'cause Viper didn't solve the problem.
Also changed my wifi ssid to one word, before I had a blank in it. Didn't solve it either.
Last week after university it flawlessly connect to my home wifi, today it didn't.
I'm clueless :S

So I'll live with it, hopefully the 4.4.3 update will fix it

I'm having exactly the same problem with my One S (S4) and CM11 (M5 Snapshot). I'm only using it for a day but could experience the behaviour when changing from University WiFi (802.1x EAP, eduroam) to home WiFi (WPA2) repeatedly.
Looks like some more people have that issue: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=50953449

Is there any known solution?

Hi,
as of today I haven't found a solution.
Thanks for the link to other people, with the same problem.
Sadly this problem seems to be not well responded to. I can't post on Cm11 thread yet...
Maybe a bug report would help.
Will try to put one together

There is no solution and its only got worse on CM when they added wifi to the kernel because before you could just turn on airplane mode on/off to fix it.
