Re: WIFI issues on z5 premium.

If you don't have the WPS Push button on your router then you have to add WPS Client in your router settings. I will take you through how I configured my phone on my NETGEAR SUPER HUB 2. I am sure you will always find a way of doing it on your specific router.

N.B Settings are done on the router itself not the wireless signal booster.

 

1.Take a look at the sticker, which has the technical information about your router, on the bottom of the Super Hub 2 and locate the web address under To access the settings page

 

2.Open a Web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer) and enter the address – it should be http://192.168.0.1


Note: If you have enabled Modem Mode on your new Super Hub you will need to use 192.168.100.1 instead.

 

3.When prompted, enter the password shown on the sticker.

Note: You may also be prompted to enter the WPS password

Once you’ve accessed the page there are three types of settings you can change:

  • Wireless Network Settings – allows you to change your wireless security settings, to disable broadcasting your wireless network name, and even to disable wireless altogether.
  • Super Hub Settings – allows you to change the password for accessing this page.
  • Device Connection Status – allows you to view details on the Super Hub's current status, along with details about any devices that are connected to the Super Hub.

In addition, there’s a link for Advanced Settings at the bottom of the screen

 

4. Select Advanced Settings link and opt to Add a WPS Client ,a blank pin box will appear

5. From your Sony Experia Z5  phone, go into Settings and choose Wireless & Networks

6.Select three dots on the top right corner 

7. From the dropdown menu choose Advanced

8. Choose WPS PIN Entry

9. Enter the WPS PIN generated into the box in step four

10. Wait for the configuration to be completed and then log off

 

NB Each time a configuration is done a different  random WPS PIN is generated

Re: WIFI issues on z5 premium.

Hi, there is also this thread "Wifi doesn't connect while phone is in sleep", where a solution is posted for not automaticly connecting to known WiFi points. My solution I found on XDA Developers at this page, comment #12. It solved my problem where my Z5c on Marshmallow wouldn't connect to known WiFi spots. It might as well solve your problem. In short:

Settings -> Developer Options -> "Use Legacy DHCP Client" and Reboot.

 

Many thanks to adendum.

Re: WIFI issues on z5 premium.

Just bought Z5 premium this evening. Had wifi problem. Started off with wifi connected but no Internet. Switched wifi connection and got connected after a while. But very slow. Like minutes for 2mb.

After reading this forum, did 2 things and seemed ok now.
1. Settings, wifi, ..., advanced, keep wifi on during sleep,
Changed it to never, exit, come in again and changed it to always.

2. Settings, wifi, ..., advanced, network notification
Turn it off

Will see how it goes.
My Android OS is 6

My Xperia Z5 Premium (wifi problem)

I'm having a wifi problem with my Sony Xperia Z5 Premium. At  home, I have a fast speed wifi internet connection. It works fine with my pc and other devices but not with my Xperia Z5 Premium. My Xperia Z5 Premium only can access the fast speed internet within 5 minutes, after 5 minutes the speed will go to the slowest speed and everytime I tried to browse, the connection time out. I experimented this while no device were connected to the wifi. Sony please fix this issue.

Re: WIFI issues on z5 premium.

Hello Sony are you there lots of customers with expensive devices with the same issues that you wouldn't find on a 40quid tablet from aliexpress, I sent my phone to get repaired and it came back 2weeks later with a recept saying issue resolved "happy days"... Nope nothing is resolved
