Now, there are 2 wifi networks in the apartment and I've tried both. I actually just "forgot network" on the last remembered network on my phone because I was trying to connect to the better one.
Since I've done that, I am unable to connect to wifi at all, because the only way for me to connect to wifi before was to restart my phone and have it automatically connect to the remembered network.
Now that I don't have a remembered network, I cannot connect to anything, and my Wifi page on my phone will not show any wifi networks available and it won't even give the option to turn on wifi or to refresh the list. I have to reboot my phone, making sure the wifi is off first (using the toggle on the dropdown notification menu), then I can at least refresh the empty list. When I refresh the list, it gives me an error, "WPA failed. Retry in a few minutes."
I need this fixed. I live in a basement apartment and my cell signal is usually unavailable while I'm home.
I was running the AOKP 4.3 milestone when I started having the problem, then went back to stock, put on a 4.4 nightly ROM, had the same problem, then went back to the same 4.3 milestone. Unfortunately, I didn't leave my phone on stock 4.4 long enough to see if the problem persisted there.
Is there anything I can do at this point before going through the process of bringing my phone back to stock again?
