Wifi Problems after Cyanogenmod 7.1
Posted 14 December 2011 - 01:27 AM
umm i am not that good with technical terms. i updated just five minutes ago from cyanogenmod 7.0.8 to 7.1.0 i didnt see any difference. i turned on the wifi like usual and opened my browser. i googled the new features. it wouldnt load. i looked at the status bar and the wifi icon had 3 bars but they were gray instead of green like usual when connected. i checked settings and it said connected. i turned wifi off and on. i hit forget network and retyped the password. i am rebooting now. i changed the channels. i tried everything. what else can i do? i use it daily for school and work. i need the wifi to work. if it wont work then please tell me how to uninstall 7.1 and go back to 7.0.8. i backed the rom up before i updated so i can do that right? please help. thanx so much.
sorry if i used to many emotes. i like emotes. haha hope u dont take it as emote spam.

It's been posted many times, but in the terminal type:
rm -rf /data/misc/wifi && reboot
This will reset your wifi connections, so you'll have to input your WPA or WEP password again, but it will get the wifi working for a while.

I am able to connect at home.
At home, I use WEP encryption.
Work uses WPA/WPA2 PSK encryption.
Does anyone know if the Alpha 3.5 has been built to handle WPA/WPA2 PSK encryption?
Can anyone here confirm that they are able to connect through WPA/WPA2 PSK encryption?

Here's a more reliable and easier fix to changing your router channel, since you can't change the channel on every router you may try to use. I've posted it all over the forum, so I apologize if you're seeing it for the umpteenth time:
I was not having the wifi troubles that two other touchpad owners I know were having. I installed Android on both of their devices, but couldn't figure out what to do to fix it and it was making me insane. Finally, we reset all our routers to a channel below 5 and found that they all connected to wifi well, HOWEVER, I found a better solution. I don't know if anyone has noticed this, but this must be a setting I fiddled with on my TP, that the other two TP owners had not fiddled with.
Go into Wifi Settings, then click the Menu button at the bottom left (the three bars)... click Advanced then click Regulatory Domain. In my touchpad, I had clicked on the 11 Channel option. On the two touchpads that could not regularly connect to wifi, neither had a selection made whatsoever under "Regulatory Domain." After clicking "11 Channels," all three touchpads can connect to wifi with no issues AT ALL, no matter the channel.
I almost can't believe this hasn't been posted in other forums yet, because it seems to be the key and much easier than setting every router you want to connect to, to a different channel.
Please let me know if this works.

But I was having the same problem - I found a fix that worked for me, and figured if anyone else was still having problems that this might help you to.
I found that I was only having this problem when near my work computer and my laptop at home - So I thought what do these two computers have in common; considering ones a Mac and the Other is a Dell.
They both have Bluetooth adapters and are setup to automatically scan and are discoverable. Characteristics of this problem would be Disconnected - Scanning - Connecting - Disconnected Loop when near the Bluetooth Device and perfect connect when you walk away.
So try and either unplug it if it's a dongle or turn it off it's built in. If this works, then mess with your Bluetooth settings till you can have the two live in harmony.
As I don't care for Bluetooth on my Dell Laptop considering I don't use it, So unplugging my Dongle is as far as I'm going to go.
Best of luck & Hope this works!

Happened to me after last system update.
Found a very simple fix:
wifi-settings->option key for advanced setting-> set regulatory domain to 11 channels.
For some reason none of the 3 options was selected, probably why it kept on freezing when connecting.
