xperia z1 wifi issue

Re: xperia z1 wifi issue

I just dumped the Note2 to get myself a Z1. The Note2 gave me too much issues that I gave up after 6 months of usage after switching from Iphone 4S.

 

Less than a week old, I would say I am very impressed with the phone in almost every aspect and I am glad that I did not get the iphone 5S instead.

 

Until I decided to connect to my home wifi, my very first negative experience starts.

The message says LIMITED CONNECTIVITY but every single laptops, smartphones (including my Note2), ipads, etc have no issues at all.

I have read through the above replies and tried almost everything that I could think of, it finally got connected but LIMITED CONNECTIVITY is what I get. 

What could be my problem?

Wifi is very weak. I've tried everything said in this forum and a few others. Channel of my router is OK. Even low end devices pick up wifi much better than Z1. Update also didn't help.

Re: xperia z1 wifi issue

2 issues:

Wifi not connecting

Phone gets 'blazing hot' while surfing on Wifi

 

Any suggestions? Battery also seems to suffer because of this... so does the camera, when it is 'hot'

The issue i mentioned was only related to channel 12-14. If you can't connect on channel 11 there's some other problem.

Have you tried the suggestions here: http://talk.sonymobile.com/t5/FAQ/Wi-Fi-problems/m-p/348104?


Your phone is Wi-Fi® certified, so if the router isn’t, the devices may not communicate properly.

 

Have been trying to find the wifi cert for the Z1 from the wifi alliance website  and i cannot find any entry for it ?

Re: xperia z1 wifi issue

The 257 release very very slightly improved things but still beyond poor.
