Is it just me or is wifi on the NT abysmal?
Problem 1. Many times, I will pick up my NT after it has been sitting idle for a number of hours, and wifi simply will not connect. I try to turn it off and back on in the settings, but it says it is unable to turn wifi off. I power cycle the device and it works again. This will happen on an almost daily basis.
Problem 2. Once wifi is working, certain websites will not load, or will load just once and wont' load again for hours. For example, I bookmarked these forums, and I check them often for updates. I wasn't having any problem at all until the last couple weeks. I'm rooted with google apps, i'm using the original browser. A few moments ago, I loaded the big list of forums. It worked fine. I clicked on THIS forum, however, and it would no longer load. I can browse the forums on my Droid Charge, my Desktop PC, my iPad and my girlfriend's iPhone 4s, so I know the website is not down, and it's a problem with the NT only. Other websites on the NT work fine. I can run the Speedtest app on the tablet with no problems. I can run wifi analyzer. This problem even occurs on Dolphin Browser.
I'm about to just do a factory restore again and give up on rooting for now. This was the same problem that made me restore a few weeks ago. The browser just becomes borked after being rooted for x amount of time.
Has anyone else encountered this problem?
Just an update: After factory restoring using it for a while, and then re-rooting, I've noticed that problem 2 has never re-occurred. I'm not certain what was happening. Very strange. I reproduced the problem over and over before posting. I even tried resetting my router and modem just in case.
Problem 1 persists. Rebooting always fixes the problem temporarily, but if the device goes to sleep for a few hours whether charging or not, it will almost always need a reboot. I always try to turn wifi off and back on, but the device is unable to disable wifi during this issue. I never noticed this problem while the device was unrooted, though I'll admit I didn't keep it stock, unrooted, very long.
