Noticed this morning when watching movie clips off facebook that the clips could just shut down randomly. WTH i thought and tried and tried and sometimes it played the clip longer and sometimes just shut them down.

Switched to 2.4ghz wifi instead and that seemed to work alot better. Even tried the same clips over 3g and that seemed to work aswell hence i belive it is some problem when using the 5ghz.

Signal strength is showing very good on both bands but still problem. Anyone else been having theese problems ?

Im running the .757 NCB firmware with the stock kernel from that firmware and rooted. Bootloader relocked with flashtool. Router im using is the Asus RT-N66U. Never had problems like this with the other phones.

EDIT: Done more testing when at work on pure 3g connection and it opens clips posted on facebook and plays for a little while and then closes them down back to facebook. So it doesent seem to be problems with wifi/3g.

What could cause this ? Dunno what player the facebook apps uses when opening videos.

I also have a problem with wifi... When I connect to 1 particular modem (sadly my houses) it messes up the modem. The modem behaves like hectic and kicks out all devices, or looses connection. Checked with the provider and they sent 3 technicians. They did not do anything. Please help, as it only happens with this device and it feels like my ZTE modem is allergic to it...

Sorry if it's off topic, but I thought maybe there are any similarities between cases.

Well I think my problem is gone, or hoping anyway I repaired the phone with Sony update. Unrooted now but it will remain like that until a stable and working software are available.

I experienced issues with the 5ghz and 2.4ghz, but nothing like what you guys have had. Are you using the same SSID for both 5ghz and 2.4ghz? if so try changing them slightly, sorted out my problems, and it also fixed problems that some of my customers were experiencing too.
