Internet issue, grey bars not going into blue bars
I've had my prime for about a month and a half
I've started to notice an issue with the wifi.
I've tried reading up on google for people with similar problems. But it has been hard to isolate my problem midst the myraid of wi-fi problems primarily those who have issues with the wifi strength being sub par.
The deal is ... Start of the day, walk onto campus, log on to the wifi. Now in order to use my university's wi fi I need to enter my ID details for it in order to connect. So normally I go into Dolphin and click google, and the web authentication page will come up. So I type in my details and the internet works fine, the grey bars turn to blue.
I've read a lot about the difference between grey bars and blue bars, like grey bars means it's connected to the internet but not synced to the google account. However for me, grey bars mean absolutely no internet.
Then further on in the day. I move to another part of campus, then suddenly I've got no internet. I'm guessing because I've disconnected from 1 particular region and attempted to connect in another. Or the transformer prime goes into some hibernatory state while it's unused on standby in my bag.
I can't even get to the authentication page. The signal is fine as shown on wi fi analyser, but it just doesn't transmit everything. I try restarting my tablet, forgetting the wi-fi location and reconnecting. Nothing works.
Still says the connection is fine, but no information is getting transferred.
The same thing happens at home with my wireless internet.
Where the internet bars stay perpetually grey. Now the solution to the problem, is to restart the router, then the internet is fine. However in university, this obvioiusly is not a solution. And I depend on the wi - fi for my university studies, so having no wi fi for the tablet pretty much renders it useless.
Just today, at home. The internet was working fine and I had to restarted the router. And now I've got the problem. If I were to reset the router, I think the problem will cease. Nothing wrong with the signal. It's connected, just no information being transmitted.
Now I'm hoping it's something on the tablet that I can change. If I really have to, I'd factory reset. I've read something about this issue on XDA, where the solution was something to do with static IPs. Now I'm not too tech savvy and have no experience in rooting or playing around with ROMS, so I didn't really understand.
If there is anyone out there has come across this probelm, I'd appreciate any help.
As well as whether factory reset has ever worked for anyone
