Second Batch Fairphone - Updated to Cherry 1.6.
I rebooted many times, removed battery an SIM, tried everything out I read at the relevant forum threads (including emptying the google play store cache, but after a certain time it’s always the same: The WIFI bar turns from blue to grey and shows uploading arrows but it’s not possible to use the internet based apps. Could anyone help me please? It’s really annoying!
Maybe a useful information: After OS updating I sometimes recieved the message (in German): Google Play Store wurde beendet…?!
I already did the WLAN setup after ‘Forget’ before. But now again: No change.
Sometimes it suddenly worked - but I can’t see on which fact it depends. And suddenly, it breaked down again.
And all the time it shows: ON and CONNECTED.
Is it possible that it has something to do with the WPA2 Key?
@Lidwien: Thanks to your advice. I have to go now but I’ll try it later.
At the moment, it works. But 2 minutes ago it didn’t. And it will break down again I fear…
I’ll let you know!
Thanks to you and stojmas for now.
I also experience this problem with the O2 Box 6431. I think the problem is with the DHCP client (dhcpd) on the Fairphone. My girlfriend does not have this problem, using another Android 4.0 based smartphone and the same router, of course (-; Someone else at computerhilfen.de supports that it’s a problem specific to Fairphone.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t solve it completely, but I’ve got a quite good workaround:
Change the DHCPv4 lease duration to the highest value (2 weeks), so this issue should occur quite less.
The static IP solution should solve it as well. Then you’ll also need to register the IP you’ve used in the router, so it will be reserved for only this device.
