xperia u wifi problems

ok so my xperia u got updated to the new ics on monday (build number 6.1.1.b.1.10 android version 4.0.4) and now i cannot access my home wifi

however i can access others. it just seems to be the one where i done the update over.

when i connect to the wifi it is ok until i go into google play store or even just connecting to anything that needs the a stong connection

it then shuts the wifi down which then has a knock on effect to the laptop that is connected through the homehub.

the phone was working fine until this update. i thought it was a great phone until this but now thinking i should have stayed with htc!!!!

has anyone else had this problem with ics update and do you know of any plans to fix it!

any information would be great

Re: xperia u wifi problems

HI i have exactly the same problem, wifi works 100% for a maxumium of 2 mins, then dies. And make the whole network shutdown i also have a homehub 3. however i restart the hub and the computers work fine. but it doesnt solve the phone. if you right click on the wifi icon on your pc and trobleshoot sometimes windows manages to fix the network by "reopening the defult gateway". before the ics upgrade it work perfectly.

Re: xperia u wifi problems

I read that doing a factory reset in settings or repair the phone via pc conpanian or sony update service can fix the problem, however it will delte all personal data

Re: xperia u wifi problems

Its a wifi router settings problem. Change the authenticaltion type of the router between WEP and WEP2 and it should work with one of em.

Re: xperia u wifi problems

I have never faced the problem before but changing the authentication type of the router should be easy and info available in the router website/google.
