Google Nexus 5 :: WiFi Not Working On Phone

Nov 21, 2014

So for about a week and a half, my Nexus 5 would not allow me to turn on my WiFi. When it first started, if I tried to turn on WiFi then my phone would just shut down and start back up like nothing happened. If I had the WiFi on already, then it would randomly reboot until I turned WiFi off. I searched threads and found nothing that wouldn't void my warranty (I got it in March).

After a couple days, rather than randomly turning off, my Nexus chose to just never let me control the WiFi ever again. I attached a photo to the post that shows what it looks like when I go into my WiFi settings. I no longer have any control over whether my WiFi is on or off, although it has been stuck on the "Turning On WiFi" phase for well over 2 days. Also, all these reboots are hard reboots as in, it doesn't warn me, the screen just goes black and starts back up. Heres what I have tried to solve this issue:

- Reboot
- Format Cache
- Startup in Safe Mode
- Uninstall some Apps
- Contact Google
- Factory Reset
- Updating all my Apps
- Installing Android 5.0*

* This leads me to my second issue, if my screen turns its self off or I press the power button on the side of my Nexus to get the screen to turn off, then my phone just hard reboots. What's even worse is that if I leave it on in my pocket and it randomly restarts due to it automatically dimming/turning off the screen, then, until I hold down the power button to normal power off, my phone will be stuck in a reboot loop. My screen dims, then turns off, then it just reboots and it does this again and again and again. This issue only started happening AFTER the Android L or Android 5.0 (whatever you prefer to call it) update.

All while this is happening, my Bluetooth refuses to turn on, almost like my WiFi, but with my Bluetooth, if I slide the circle to one side to turn it on, it just randomly snaps back into the "Off" position. I contacted Google before Android 5 came out, so the dim screen/power button problem I listed in the paragraph above was not happening.

Now this whole time, with the exception of Android 5.0, as long as I didn't have WiFi on or I didn't have control over the WiFi on/off setting, my phone was fairly stable and I was able to get some stuff down, again, with the exception of the Android 5.0 update.

Google Nexus 5 :: WiFi Not Working

Oct 24, 2015

So about a week ago my WiFi just wouldn't work anymore. When I try to turn it on, it stays stuck at "Turning WiFi on". I think I've tried almost anything to make it work again. I've reflashed the factory image 3 time (Android 6.0), I've tried downgrading to Lollipop 5.1.1 but it still wouldn't work. I took it to a GSM Service and they said that there is no hardware problem.

Google Nexus 5 :: Slow WiFi On Phone

Nov 6, 2013

After being connected to WiFi for a while the wifi speeds drop to less than a quarter of their normal speeds, e.g. at home 6 Mbps drops to 1.4 Mbps. It is the same at work connecting to an enterprise level AP (although speed drop is 30 Mbps to about 5 so less of a problem).

I know it is device related as other devices tested at the same time are at the right speed.

Toggling WiFi off then on again returns everything to normal speed.

It's like it reverts to power saving mode. Didn't have this problem with my 4 or current N7.

Google Nexus 5 :: Why Does WiFi Turn Off When Get A Phone Call

Jun 30, 2014

Is it just me or does WiFi turn off when you get an incoming phone call? When I am at home, I am hooked up to wifi. When I get a call on my N5, I can see the wifi disconnect, it connects to LTE, then the phone rings. When I hang up, WiFi will reconnect.

Google Nexus 5 :: Why Does WiFi Drop / Often Freeze On Phone

Jan 4, 2015

I have a Nexus 5 (USA Google Play Store version) and have had issues with WiFi dropping out for a while now. The WiFi on the phone often freezes. What I mean by freezing is webpage might stop loading half way through or a video might stop streaming and just freezes. To get the WiFi to work again I have to turn WiFi off and then back on again. I have reset the phone and have tried another nexus 5, and still have the same issue. All of the other devices that I have (several computers, tablets, iPhones, an s4, etc) work fine. I have 3 Fritz! box routers that all have the same SSID, password, etc. I am using Verizon Fios.

Google Nexus 5 :: Phone Never Connects To Public WiFi

Sep 30, 2014

Is there a switch or something I need to do to have it connect to public wifi accounts? When we were in hotels with free wifi my phone wouldn't connect. It would find the wifi of the hotel to connect to, I would press connect, and then it would take me to a supposed webpage to "log in" for free but that webpage would NEVER load! And I would wait, and wait to no avail.

Google Nexus 5 :: Can't Connect Phone To Home WiFi?

Jan 18, 2014

First and foremost I'm a new Android user coming from the iPhone and I absolutely love everything about it. My one problem isn't Android; however, it's been this N5 wifi connection issue. I cannot connect to my home wifi whatsoever.

I do have unlimited data with my plan but still, the use of WiFi is obviously important. Has Google stated they are working on a fix for this?

I'm at the point of possibly returning my N5 for a different phone as much as I love everything else with this phone.

Google Nexus 6 :: Why Won't Phone Stay Connected To WiFi

Oct 11, 2015

For the past few weeks, my phone has been struggling to stay connected to my home WiFi. I feel like it might be a problem with the WiFi itself, since my phone remains connected to other WiFi sources. The network shows up on my phone, but just shows its status as "Saved" and won't connect.

I have a Nexus 6, Verizon, on 5.1.1, build LMY48M. It is not rooted, and I don't have any battery saver apps or firewall apps on my phone.

My WiFi at home is Comcast WiFi, a 2.4 GHz signal, with G and N supported protocols, with WPAWPA2-TKIP/AES security. The firewall security is set to low. I have a modem/router combination (the one you lease from Comcast).

I have tried most things described on the internet; forgetting the network on my phone and reconnecting, resetting the wireless modem, updating the modem, switching WiFi on and off, the same with airplane mode, changing my wireless on the phone from automatic to 2.4Ghz and 5GHz, and nothing has worked. If I turn the phone off and then back on, it will reconnect to the WiFi, but will only stay connected for a few hours, at which point it won't connect.

I've had to turn my cellular data off completely because my phone is devouring my mobile data.

Google Nexus 5 :: Phone Wifi Only Connects When Screen Is On

Dec 29, 2015

I have this problem for some time now (at least since the marshmallow update). If I move my Nexus 5 to a different place, far from the current Wi-Fi AP, it does not connect to the nearest saved AP, it only does that if I wake up the screen.

The Wi-Fi works properly when the screen is off, I still get the notifications and all, I just have to stay connected to the same AP. I have tried everything to find what is the problem, but I can't find it.

I did a factory reset, it was working again, but when I did the first time Google account login, it started again, even on safe mode.

I thought I corrected it by doing another reset and not recovering my account , but when installing some apps it started again.

Every time I think I found the app that causes the problem and uninstall it, the Wi-Fi problem eventually returns
and I don't know what to do more.

What I have found out is that even uninstalling the app I think is the culprit, the Wi-Fi only works again properly if I reboot the phone, so maybe I have not found the app, and the Wi-Fi only works properly because I rebooted the phone?

The apps I have on my phone are the same I have in my Nexus 7 (2013), and with all those apps, the Wi-Fi works properly on the Nexus 7.

Is there anyway to know if is the phones fault, or some app (that makes the Wi-Fi not work properly on the Nexus 5,but not in the Nexus 7)?

Google Nexus 5 :: How To Get Phone To Automatically Reconnect To Home WiFi

Sep 5, 2015

I normally have my Nexus 5 phone WiFi connected to my home network and have Data turned off.

If I move out of range of my network obviously the phone's WiFi connection drops.

When I return to within range of my home network my phone doesn't automatically reconnect to my home network. I have to press the power button on the phone to wake up the screen and within a couple of seconds the phone connects to my home network.

When I first got the phone I never had this issue. The phone would reconnect to my home network even though the screen hadn't been woken up.

When I got the phone it was on an older version of Android .. before Android version 5.

I have run the phone in Safe Mode and the automatic reconnect still doesn't occur.

So on Lollipop 5.1.1 should the reconnect to WiFi be automatic ?

Google Nexus 5 :: Phone Reboots When Locked - Can't Turn On WiFi And Bluetooth

Aug 14, 2015

I have the following issues:

-(When i lock my phone or when it locks itself it reboots) fixed
-I can't turn on wifi and bluetooth
-(Can't copy files to phone) fixed

I tried this [URL] .... but in the step [URL].....

I don't get any problems. I did the second command but it also didn't solve the issue that I can't copy files. I tried resetting to factory settings twice, didn't do anything. I tried putting it in the refrigerator but didn't do anything.

99% sure it's hardware issue, gonna RMA the phone.

Google Nexus 5 :: Phone Stopped Working All Of The Sudden

Dec 1, 2015

Yesterday around midnight my phone suddenly stopped working. I wasn't using it, it was just sitting on my desk and had been for at least half an hour.

When I boot it, it stays stuck on the boot animation.

Until yesterday it was running a custom built version of CM12.1 (from this thread: [URL] ...

With a ElementalX-N5-4.09 kernel.

I tried:

Reflashing the ROM
Wiping and Reflashing the ROM
Wiping and Reflashing the ROM, without ElementalX
Wiping and Flashing an older version
Wiping and formating of user data too + Reflashing
complete reset by doing fastboot oem lock/unlock
flashing of the factory image of Android 6

Each time the result is the same. When the phone was still running cyanogen I had adb while it was booting (that's no longer the case) and I saw nothing striking ... it would have one (pc) screen worth of log (logcat) and then nothing it would just stop. I couldn't spot anything in kernel logs either (dmesg/last_kmsg).

The recovery is working fine ... I was able to start an ssh server and use it... it's just android that won't boot.

Google Nexus 5 :: Display Stopped Working - Phone Is Rooted

Dec 17, 2015

Recently my Nexus 5 stopped working. I get no display, But I can assume the phone is on because when I connect it, the holder on my computer opens up.

I assume there is something wrong with the connection. sometimes i can play with the daughterboard and the backlight lights up. but there is still no display.

The problem is that the phone is in PTP instead of MPT.

I don't care about the phone much as the pictures on it, because they are the last picture I have of a family member that recently passed away in an accident.

Even though the phone is rooted. when I load up Nexus toolkit, the phone is listed as unauthorized and I don't know how to pull any files off of it.

Google Nexus 5 :: Phone Auto Rotate Stopped Working Overnight

Sep 29, 2015

I just recently fixed this same issue with my Nexus 7, but this is a whole different beast. I used Check My Android to check my accelerometers, and they are functioning just fine. I cleared my cache and then cleared/reformatted the partition. Then I did a factory reset because I was losing my mind. It's still not working. I went into the display settings to turn on the auto rotate manually and it will rotate with that screen up but not on my home screen or in any other app.

Google Nexus 5 :: Phone Doesn't Ask For Google Credentials After Many Unlock Attempts

Aug 22, 2015

I'm sure many of you have heard that when you enter an incorrect pattern/PIN/password, eventually the phone asks for Google account credentials to unlock it. My Nexus 5 on 5.1.0 does not do this. Does yours? If my lock screen is set to PIN, I can enter as many incorrect attempts as I want, it never asks and never stops me. If I have a pattern set it will let me enter 10 incorrect attempts after which it simply stops me from trying for 30s, but it never asks for Google account credentials.

Google Nexus 5 :: Phone Stuck Resetting At Google Logo

Jul 20, 2014

So this morning I woke up to my phone on a boot loop on the Google Logo. I have no custom roms or mods on it other than I am running ART. I suspect it could be battery related as it will only seem to do this on the charger but when I don't have it plugged in it won't even start up. When it's plugged in it won't even seem to want to stay "off", it boots up to the google logo on its own. If I hold down the volume rocker I can get into the bootloader but it resets before I can select anything and boots right back into the google logo.

Google Nexus 6 :: LTE Turns Off When WiFi Is On?

Oct 10, 2015

their N6 on Sprint where Sprint service essentially turns off whenever Wi-Fi is on. This is the only way I've been able to describe my issues with the N6. Whenever I am at home, I am usually on Wi-Fi because it works more reliably than LTE. So whenever someone calls me, the call goes straight to voicemail. I only receive a missed call notification if someone leaves a voicemail. I've been able to test this out with family members where I turn on Wi-Fi, they call me, and the call goes straight to VM. Then, I turn off Wi-Fi, they call me again, and I get the call.

Keeping LTE on all the time (and Wi-Fi off) would not be an issue but for the fact that Sprint's service notoriously sucks inside any building made of concrete (even in Manhattan). I'm not ready to switch providers because I've been grandfathered into a no-throttle unlimited everything plan where I essentially can use 5GB of data each month and pay a reasonable price. I moved to NYC recently and before lived in the D.C. area, where I lived in a house adjacent to a tower. There, I didn't mind keeping Wi-Fi off because I always had great LTE.

This is quite frustrating and it appears to be documented to some effect on Sprint's website (without a fix, of course). Sprint has now reset my network, PRL, and profile; and the only other option appears to be replacing the phone through my insurance. I'm hesitant, though, because I preordered a 6P.

I've been playing with it today, turning Wi-Fi on and off, and no matter what, the Wi-Fi usage time matches my phone on time. It seems according to the battery meter my Wi-Fi is always on.
