Default [Q] Xpreia Arc S WiFi is't stable at all !

Hi,

The misery is the ARC S wifi isn't stable at all, it connects to my SSID smoothly and gets IP too. but most of the time I can not open any websites even google.com from the phone browser ! and the funny part is i can't ping the phone IP from my laptop but i can ping my laptop IP from the phone ( ARC S ) !

It's really annoying, for solving this problem I decided to changed the Stock ROM ,Stock Kernel , and unlook the bootloader.
1- I unlooked the bootloader.
2-I flashed [KERNEL][GPL] Vengeance [1.38][3/5] from recovery ,also I installed OTP-Module and Wifi Module.
3- after that I flashed the stock rom to [ROM]{ICS} Xperia Ultimate HD 4.0 | The next Generation | Slim & Beautiful | 08.07.13
4- the arc s Baseband is 77 and I didn't change it.

but at the end none of this efforts doesn't work. and the problem is still exit as before. (

This is my mother phone and she just uses it for surfing the net and goes to facebook, when every time it goes wrong , she'll come to me and asking for troubleshooting ....
please some tell me what should I do to solve wifi problem.

You can try using a different kernel, LuPuS v16 or Advanced stock kernel is recommended.

You cant flash kernel from recovery. You have to flash it using fastboot

First of all Thanks popthosegaskets,
I flashed [KERNEL]ARC/S-Advanced stock-4.1.B.0.587-[ROOT+INIT.D+CWM+SD-EXT] after that I flashed Stock ICS ( 4.1.B.0.587_Generic_World 1254-8596 ) ROM too.
every thing seems more stable especially wifi. but when i flashed kerne via fastboot I didn't installStock_WiFi_modules_ICS_587.zip
with that ( I know, I can install it via recovery ) by the way, Is it necessary ? I'm afraid if I install it, every thing goes wrong again !
what 's your idea about that ?

DONATE TO ME
You have to install the WiFi modules AFTER installing the ROM. Otherwise the custom ones (from the kernel) will just be written over by stock ones.

Default How did you get on with this?

I've tried just about every GB, ICS and JB ROM, and kernels to match. My experience is that any GB ROM/kernel combo and the WiFi is fine. Stock ICS ROM and kernel, WiFi is fine. Any other ICS ROM or kernel, and every JB combo gives poor Wifi performance. Connection drops out, router not in range when standing next to it, and when it is connected, slow speeds. This is one of the many issues I'm having with this phone. When (if) funds permit, I'm going to a Z1.

Well it depends on what combo you used...For me i have gin2kk and lupus gbv2 it's the best experience i ever had,it's better than stock.

Yeah but Gin2KK is GB-based, so WiFi is fine. I'm now on G2KK and doomkernel v22, and WiFi is great!
