Re: Ongoing wifi issues even after update to 47.1.a.12.119

Dear folks,

i can confirm, that the WLAN issues depends on the enviroment and the signal strenght. At some places with WLAN it´s working and at others not... You can try doing a software repair with Xperia Companion software. I recogniced differences doing an incremental OTA update or reflushing the whole firmware, with same patch level.

I´m on April 1. firmware at this time... If May update is getting available, i will repair the phone to this new version. Hopefully something will change to better..

 

Best regards

Just installed the .145 update and wifi is still broken.

I'm in contact with my local store for full refund for my device.

Too bad. I quite liked the Compact series, but I guess I have to look elsewhere now :/

Same as before. April update installed, WIFI disconnecting and not reconnecting at least once a day, only reboot helps. But I'm not sure I can get a full refund because of this, so guess I'm stuck with this problem. What I don't get is why only some people have these issuies and others (majority?) don't.

bought the XZ1 compact in Oct17 and remembered having wifi issue (requiring reboot to connect successfully back to home wifi).  

 

after subsequent update this problem has gone - just letting you know my experience.  Now updating to .119 version.

I'm rocking the .145 version and in my case wi-fi connection is mainained properly without disconnects but internet doesn't work, so it's even worse as I don't know what's going on most of the time. Reconnecting fixes the issue for a few minutes.

Tested on multiple APs:

  • TP-Link Archer C50 : disconnects and reconnects really fast
  • TP-Link AV600: works just fine for a few minutes, and then started disconnecting, some APs started disappearing from the list of available APs, then started reappearing, then got stable again for a few minutes, and repeated the whole thing
  • DLink DIR803: working just fine for a few hours
  • DLink DIR615 with DDWRT: worked just fine for a few minutes, but didn't tested long enough

Re: Ongoing wifi issues even after update to 47.1.a.12.119

Just bought a new XZ1 compact (updated to 47.1.a.16.20), wifi keeps disconnecting 2-3times/day.

Often even when wifi is showing connection, I still cannot access to network.. phone is almost unusable.

 

Upgraded from X compact (which I never had any problems with) and was excited for XZ1 Wifi-Call capability since my apartment has very bad signal. Now cannot use it.

 

Is there some fix coming for this??
