Re: Wifi Signal dropping on XA1

Hi Guzzy,

 

Sure I've reset the phone, almost one hour later it is still fine. One note is that push notifications aren't coming through on my Fitbit dispite it remaining paired and updating on request, but no push notifications might be down to the fitbit app needing an update aswell.

 

I'll post again tomorrow and let you all know how it's going for me.

 

I'm doing everything that normally cuts the WiFi off when the Bluetooth is on and it's surviving so far..

Re: Wifi Signal dropping on XA1

24 hrs later.. No issues with the Bluetooth and WiFi.. 

 

Couple of resets, but not due to the WiFi Bluetooth connections - they sprung back in to action as soon as the device rebooted. 

 

Used on 4 different WiFi connections, 5ghz and 2.4 without issue. 

 

Looks like the orieo 8 update has solved this issue at long last!..  🤞🏽 . ... For now.. Who knows what the future holds. 🔮 

 

Device: xa1 duel sim (G3112) 

Location: UK 

Network: 3 (three)

Xperia XA1 wi fi drops every now and then after Oreo update

 Hello!

 

After update to Oreo my XA1 sometimes drops saved WiFi networks every now and then. Even if I go to WiFi settings and force it to connect via menu it still cannot connect. It connects smoothly after restart but only for an hour or so. Very annoying. 

 

I have tried Safe mode, but couldn't work much due to unavailability of third party apps and I have also tried different wifi networks but the problem persisits. 

 

This has been an issue only after Oreo update, Any idea?

Re: Xperia XA1 wi fi drops every now and then after Oreo update

If you are connected to multiple WiFi signals in range, I would suggest forgetting one of them so that it will select the only WiFi connection. I have noticed this happening on my own handset and forgetting one of the networks caused it to stop dropping connections. This is probably due to the system switching networks because one network is stronger and it fluctuates.
