Re: xperia u wifi problems

Thanks for the tip lanka007, but I already have nothing under "/data". Not even subfolders "../misc/dhcp".

@ others - So, I have the same problem and it started after I updated to Android 4.0.

Re: xperia u wifi problems

That explains it then. No, I have not rooted my phone and I'm not going to, because I do not wish to loose warranty.

I called to Sony service and they told me it just not going to work anyway (that is their opinion) and only way would be to "slow down" the router. According to them the warning of losing some features when updating concerns also wifi that will work "slower" on Android 4.0. But I do not have control on routers around public places, which pretty much means it is not an option for me.

Now I probably will bring my phone to local warranty service and ask them to downgrade my phone back to Android 2.3. After all, there are not that many new fancy features on Android 4.0 what I would miss anyway.

@lanka007 - But I have to admit how little interest the Sony service seem to give on this issue, especially if and when your solution actually fixes the whole issue so easily. They also said there are millions of phones sold, and therefore few cases reported on forum does not prove anything. Not very good service from Sony, I must say.
