Galaxy S6 :: Nearby WiFi Portal Causes Constant Reboots

Apr 21, 2015

I am on my second T-Mobile Galaxy S6. The first unit had a hardware camera defect as well as this wifi bug. I had them replace it and the new unit's camera is good but it has the same wifi issue. Here's what happens:

When I go to an area with an "open" wifi network, a notification pops up on my screen that says "Click here to connect to null." What's strange is I have almost all wifi features off, particularly "Network notification." It should not tell me when any network is available. I also have "Allow Always Scanning" off as well as Wifi Calling disabled (not that relevant). Anyway, once this happens, I have about 2 seconds to turn off wifi or else the phone will reboot. It's a "soft" restart though, meaning it shows the Samsung and T-Mobile logo then is back on again within 5-10 seconds and fully "booted" within 30 seconds. This will keep happening until I turn off wifi.

It's not just any wifi connection that will cause the issue. I think it has to be an "open" connection that uses a portal for authentication (think universities, hotels, airports, etc). Recently, I clicked on one of the notifications (connect ot null) and saw a Cisco portal. I am not sure if it's isolated to Cisco AP's...

Motorola Atrix 4G :: Constant Reboots - WiFi Drivers Not Functioning Properly

Apr 16, 2012

As an update, I got my phone to quite boot looping by wiping system, cache, and data. I then reinstalled 2.3.6 via computer. This has fixed everything except my wifi. I unistalled logcat and then found highlighted in red that my wifi drivers were not functioning correctly. This does annoy me but I can still use my phone!

Galaxy S6 :: SM-G920F Freezes And Constant Reboots Out Of The Blue

Jul 30, 2015

Currently I have G920FXXU2BOFJ Baseband and it constantly crashes, even without doing anything. The crashes/reboots are completely random and very annoying. I have tried to update the firmware to a latest version from France (which had some updates for Android 5.1.1, file name G920FXXU2BOG8_G920FOXA2BOG8_XEF) but the problem persists.

Trying to revert the firmware to the original I made a mess so I'm currently using Smart Switch as I write to recover the phone from the dead. I thought it was a hardware problem, but I can leave the phone in Download Mode for as long as I want without issues (not very useful as a smartphone that way though ) However, even in the Wipe Data/Cache mode it still freezes.

Nokia :: Lumia 820 Constant Freezing And Reboots

Dec 30, 2012

As above on o2 had it almost a month now, had a few freezes in the first week but were few and far between. In the last week or 2 though they have been getting progressively more and more and now in the last couple of days have also been joined by random reboots.

I haven't been able to trace them to any installed app as they happen completely randomly, it also seems to be independent of any connectivity setting. o2 will exchange the phone for me but I can't make it crash to prove to them its faulty, if indeed it is.. Have looked on the site but can't find anyone with similar problems or any indication of what it may be.

Galaxy S6 :: Constant WiFi Connect / Disconnect - NOT Smart Network Switch

Oct 17, 2015

So just in the last few days my phone has started having some issues. I got a Powerbot wireless charger(PB1020) about the same time I got my phone at release. It's worked fine , and still does as far as I know. But know, after my phone is fully charged, when I remove it from the charger it's pretty warm(this is a new development, not really had it get very warn on the wireless charger before) and then it begins to connect and disconnect from the wifi repeatedly. I'm talking like every second it switches. I keep seeing people saying to turn off Smart Network Switch, but I did that the second day I had my phone, and it's still off, so obviously its something else.

Motorola Droid Turbo :: Started Freezing And Constant Reboots

However, within this past week the phone has started freezing... I'll be using it and then suddenly the screen freezes and sits there and reboots itself. It does this a few times a day....

BlackBerry :: How To Connect By WIFI To A Captive Portal

Mar 6, 2012

We have developed a WIFI marketing unit which stores locallised content on a linux PC and serves it by WIFI.Basically, you connect to the unit by WIFI and surf the information, and there is no internet as such so you cant go onto Google or anything. The unit has a 3G connection simply for us to update content and download usage stats.It works fine with Android and Iphone etc, but seems to struggle with Blackberry's. We can use a WIFI key if needed but would prefer not to.Does anyone know the best way to do this, do we need a WIFI key and if so, is it WEP, WPA, WPA2 etc etc.Or can we remove the WIFI key completely.From what I've seen, it appears that the blackberry favours the mobile connection over WIFI to get to the web, whereas, if I turn off mobile connection, it then connects fiune through the WIFI and shows the content

IPhone :: Why 4S IOS 5.1 Won't Connect To University's Wifi With A Captive Portal

Mar 13, 2012

My iPhone 4s won't connect to our university wifi. The IT dept recently included a captive portal whenever we connect to the network. After choosing which network to connect (my university's wifi network) the phone shows up a sliding page (or browser?) named "Log In" shows up a blue button that says "cancel" and it connects to (as said in the text above it) then redirects to the network's gateway for captive portal ( in my case) then nothing happens, it just shows a blank white screen. What do I do to fix this? It's becoming very annoying especially when i want to check my facebook or email.

IPhone :: Cannot Auto-Login To Captive Portal WiFi On IOS 5.1.1

May 8, 2012

My office uses a captive portal wifi system for non-work devices. On iOS 5.1, the OS would detect this and would pop up a browser window after connecting to the network for me to enter my login information. In addition, in the detailed wifi settings for the network, I would see two switches for enabling auto-join (connecting to the network) and auto-login (popping up the browser window).

After updating to iOS 5.1.1, on both my iPhone 4S and iPad (3rd gen) it no longer recognizes our network as a captive portal network. The extra settings are gone from the wifi settings, and the only way for me to join the network is to attempt to open a website in Safari and be redirected. Someone with access to a captive portal network can confirm whether or not this issue occurs for them in 5.1.1?

Xperia Pro/Neo/V/L :: Constant Wifi Dropping When Connected To 802.1x EAP

Nov 13, 2011

My Xperia Pro is running stock ICS 4.1.B.0.587.

It's hard to get a connection with a 802.1x EAP wifi. Even if I managed to get connected, the wifi is very unstable and will disconnect now and then!

I have tried reinstall by using update service and PC companion but the problem still exist. Is it a software or hardware issue?

IPhone :: Constant WiFi Traffic Whilst Charging

Mar 19, 2012

I noticed this evening that my broadband connection was running very slowly, and realised that a wireless device was sending constant WiFi traffic.

I traced this back to my iPhone 4S and through experimentation have diagnosed it as follows: When the iPhone is connected to a mains charger and idle, it generates constant WiFi traffic.If I wake the iPhone it immediately stops sending WiFi traffic - until it goes back to sleep and idles again.Also if I unplug the iPhone from the mains it immediately stops sending WiFi traffic.The iPhone *never* does this when it is disconnected from the mains - only when it is charging. What is going on here? Does the iPhone do something over WiFi when charging and idle? Or is my handset likely to be faulty (I bought it from the Apple store in London about a week ago)?

BB Bold 9700 :: Battery Life Went Down To Drain - Do Not Have WIFI Or Bluetooth On And Have Constant Good 3G Reception

Apr 20, 2010

I know there are multiple threads out there discussing this and I looked at most of them but this is different. My 9700 has gotten great battery life since day one, but this weekend I went out to the desert and didn't use my phone much because I only had EDGE but it was dropping in and out constantly, I had a full charge on Thursday morning and when I got home Saturday afternoon I had 20% which is pretty damn good I'm not complaining about that. When I got home I charged it fully and then on the middle of the day on Sunday my batter was almost dead. Same thing Monday and same thing today. I fully charged it yesterday afternoon and this morning it was at 25% and I hardly used my phone yesterday. SOMETHING has happened to my battery life, I'm running 5.0.0593 which hasn't ever gotten me fantastic battery life but its been okay but now its just shot.

I haven't changed anything on my BB for this to happen so I'm posting here for ideas of what could be causing this, I've looked at programs running closed everything I can and do not have WIFI or bluetooth on and Have constant good 3G reception.

Galaxy S6 :: Constant Reboot When Auto Connecting

Aug 3, 2015

The phone constantly resets when trying to connect to unknown networks that require a password. It took me ages to figure out what was causing it and it's a real pain. You could just be walking down the street and it'll try to connect to a WiFi network that will kick off this constant resetting. You have about a second to turn WiFi off, before the process starts again.

I mention EE as they have their own software variant that enables WiFi calling in the UK, not sure if that's relevant?

Huawei Nexus 6P :: Phone Not Showing Nearby Places With Location Services On

Dec 23, 2015

Currently the phone has location services on in battery saver mode with location history off. After updating to 6.0.1 or some new version of the phone app I have been unable to search for nearby places in app. The toggles for it have been turned on and off multiple times, turned the phone on and off, played with turning location settings on in different modes with the location history on and off in each scenario. Haven't tried clearing the cache and I don't find it to be a big enough problem to warrant a factory reset.

Samsung Galaxy S II :: Setting Ringtone Volume At Constant Level?

On the Galaxy S2 even though the ringtone volume is set to max, initially it starts off quietly and gradually increases in volume. Is there any way of changing this to ring at a constant level instead of starting quietly and gradually getting louder - the number of calls I've missed because of it.

Lumia 1020 :: Reboots Caused By WiFi And Bluetooth

Jan 20, 2014

I have a Nokia 1020. It has worked very well for me until recently when I bought an Qed UPlay bluetooth receiver for my stereo.Previously I had bluetooth disabled always on my 1020 but now I have it on the most of the time.What I've noticed is that my phone is restarting constantly. It seems to be connected to when I have bluetooth and wifi enabled. Or at least when I have bluetooth enabled.The phone can restart a couple of times a hour. Since yesterday evening I have had 6 restarts. That I know about...

The bluetooth settings window also hangs, I can't do anything, can't connect/disconnect from the Qed and I can't disable bluetooth. When I try a progress bar is showing that it is working but it never changes to disabled.Also, when this is happening I also can't disable wifi, the same issue with progressbar.

The wifi status bar also sometimes is in the "connecting to a wifi"-animation. It can be in this mode in hours, and of course, doesn't connect to any wifi allthough I have two which are available.I usually have to restart my phone to be able to disable/enable bluetooth/wifi.I had this issue before GDR3 and Nokia Black. And still have it after updating to Nokia Black.

Motorola Droid Razr HD :: Reboots When WiFi Is Lost

Jan 11, 2013

I had the Razr Maxx HD for a couple of months without any problems. After updating to JB, I now have a consistent problem with the phone freezing and then rebooting whenever I move out of one of my Wi-Fi APN connections. For example, while at home and connected to my home Wi-Fi, the phone is fine. As soon as I walk outside and leave my Wi-Fi coverage area, the phone will freeze. A few minutes later it will reboot on its own. Same thing at work. When I enter one of my "remembered" Wi-Fi APN coverage areas, the phone will connect OK and work OK through Wi-Fi, but as soon as I leave the area, it freezes. If I disable W-Fi, no more problems.

An exception to this is that recently I stayed several days at a hotel and connected to the hotel's Wi-Fi, and had no problems whatsoever when I left the hotel on numerous occassions.

Samsung Galaxy S II :: Constant Force Closes And Loss Of Stored Data?

Oct 20, 2012

I've had my phone since April and has recently started to experience a lot of problems with the handset. I'm best mentioning that my technical know-how is very limited in terms of phones, but I've accepted the fact I'm going to have to run a factory reset on my phone. So the problems I'm experiencing:- All of a sudden, apps start crashing one after the other. So much so that I can't even turn the phone off properly and just have to hold the power button down until it goes off itself.- Sometimes it just freezes, and when it does, it rapidly drains the battery.- Other times it just randomly decides to turn itself off (this has happened during the night resulting in me sleeping in for work because my alarm has failed to go off!)- When apps have crashed and I've had to turn it on and off again, all information stored (ie. texts, photos, Twitter feed) after the 16th October is gone!I've even went on Kies Air to start transferring photos, videos, etc. to my laptop, but even that keeps crashing, meaning it constantly disconnects from the laptop. I cleared out a lot of old apps I don't use anymore, but they reappear when I turn it back on, resetting back to pre-16th October like I mentioned.

Lumia 1320 :: WiFi And Bluetooth Shutting Off And Random Phone Reboots

Mar 18, 2015

I have a 1320 that I got brand new back on Black Friday from Cricket. The problem is after it has been on for a while, the wireless and/or bluetooth or both shutoff. When I bring the status bar down, the wireless icon and/or the bluetooth icon will be cleared out and not active. If I try to turn it back on, nothing happens, the icons stay black. I reboot and usually that fixes it but not always. Sometimes I have to reboot it a couple of times.

Also my phone sometimes reboots when I'm using the GPS to track my bike rides when the phone is in my bag. I know that because when I get to the end of my ride and check the app, Cyclometer, it stays "it has been shut off, do you want to resume" or something to that effect and then I resume it and a portion of my ride is missing from when it apparently has rebooted. I also have had it reboot on me in the middle of something that doesn't happen often.

My phone is on 8.1 and has no more pending updates. this is eating up my data plan because I normally use wireless at home. I also can't use my bluetooth speaker while riding because if I connect my bluetooth speaker to my phone, the bluetooth will shut off after about 15-25 minutes of use. It first starts to become somewhat intermittent for couple of minutes then bluetooth shuts off altogether.
