[Q] [P769] - Wifi Issues: Dropping connection. Poor Link Speed. No 5 Ghz.
I am having serious wifi issues on my T-Mobile P769 20f Jellybean which makes wifi pretty much unusable.
I have the following advanced wifi settings:
Keep wifi on during sleep = always
avoid poor connections = disabled
wifi frequency band = auto
When I am connected to wifi it will be for no longer than a few minutes before the connection drops. Sometimes it restarts on its own. Sometimes I need to kick it by toggling wifi on and off.
When I am connected I have piss poor link speed, only 5 mpbs. The connection is very slow. It took me on the order of 5 minutes today to download "wifi analyzer", an app which is less than a megabyte.
When I set wifi frequency band to 5ghz, I don't even see the 5ghz network which my dual band router (Asus rt n66u) has created on a separate SSID altogether. I only see my 2.4ghz network but trying to connect to it by clicking on the name does nothing.
When I am connected to my 2.4ghz network I have changed the ip settings from DHCP to static and that doesn't seem to help as other threads I have read suggest. My connection still frequently drops.
Finally I wish to try changing the wifi power saving setting by dialing *#0011# but that just yields "invalid MMI code".
Does anyone have any ideas? I am at my wits end with this wifi that is unusable and I am currently roaming so cannot turn on my data. It seems to me that this is the infamous Jellybean wifi issue but maybe not.
Any help is appreciated.
