hi all,

Something has been bothering me for a while with my p6800, when connected to wifi my connection intermittently slows down to a crawl or even times out, taking forever to load a webpage. No problems on 3g though... My wifi connection is not disconnecting or anything, full bars all the way.

Anybody know why and how I can fix this, as annoying is an understatement

Thanks!

Ps. using 300n router, not a congested channel. No problems with wifi on notebook or other devices. On Android 4.1.2.

What are you using WEP, WPA, WPA2,... ??? Stock or custom ROMs ???

As last resort, do a full factory reset...

Hi Arobase,

Thanks for your reply, had just about given up on this one.

I'm on 4.1.2 stock md3 and using WPA2 encryption. Don't think it matters though because I've had these problems from the get go, on stock ROM when just bought and on various Wifi encryptions (random browser timeouts, no Wifi connection drop though...). Can't really see a pattern, sometimes my wifi will work flawlessly, other times it just refuses...

Was wondering wether others had a similar issue. If you've got any ideas, do please let me know. Tbanks again!

Do change your router settings to 144Mbps mode instead of 300Mbps...
