You will need to remove the battery from your phone for ten min and then place it back in and restart. If you still lose connection then I would recommend that you reset your phone to factory specs becasue you have picked up a bug that is messing with your wifi

My android phone was working great for the iinternet but the last week it keeps losing connection what is the problem


You case may vary with the type of the connection you are using, sometimes when you are connected to a weak signal internet connection it will disconnects automatically. Or maybe the device itself is malfunctioning.

Wifi connection always seems to be unstable. Even if I'm standing beside router or anywhere else signed in to wifi. Even if connection says it's very strong. it keeps dropping out and I have to keep...


Did you get a custom ROM on the device? It looks that you have improper modem software installed. If not then please check with your carrier if there any upgrades available and install them. But, before doing that I'd highly recommend do a backup of all your personal data and then perform factory reset with the cash cleaning (internal and Dalvik).

Why does my moto G from US Cellular get poor signal now that I switch my plan from the $50 plan to the $60 plan



Cellular Signal Boosters / Repeaters

Your cellular carrier can provide you with a "signal booster" device that can repeat and boost a cellular signal you already get in your house. For example, if you consistently have one bar of coverage but no more at home, a booster can take that one bar and turn it into more bars. If you have one or two bars of coverage near a window but no coverage elsewhere in your home, a booster near that window can capture the signal and boost it, providing a strong signal throughout the rest of your home.
Some carriers offer such devices very inexpensively - $50 or maybe even free - especially if you're in an area where they know they know they have poor coverage. T-Mobile now offers such boosters for only a $25 deposit, which you can get back just by returning the booster to them.
Contact your carrier - or look at their website - to see just what they'll offer you and for how much.



Femtocells / Microcells

A femtocell - or "microcell" - is a small, low-power cellular base station that connects to the cellular network via your broadband Internet connection. Essentially, it's a small cellular signal tower that will provide a signal in and near your home, connecting to the larger mobile network over your Internet connection. This makes it ideal for situations where you don't even have a signal bar of coverage you can boost at home. The only "catch" is that your Internet connection must have a high enough download speed. Different carriers require different minimum speeds, but you should be fine as long as you have a solid broadband connection.
Ask your cellular carrier if they offer this sort of product and find out how much it will cost you. As with boosters and repeaters, a femtocell may be available at a steep discount from your carrier in areas they know they have poor cellular service.
You can also buy them easily on Amazon or almost any decent tech store - for instance the one pictured below works for AT&T and supports LTE (though it is a bit pricey), or you can get one that supports Verizon, T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint, Cricket, and many others, but you won't get LTE support. Of course, since you likely have Wi-Fi in your house, LTE isn't really a big deal and the 3G will work just fine for calls and texts.
Editor's Note: For the official How-To Geek office we got a Samsung microcell device directly through Verizon, which wasn't cheap, and doesn't work all that well. And since it only works for Verizon, any of the people who come by who use other carriers have zero signal, which is really annoying. If we could do it over again, we'd have started with this zBoost microcell that supports virtually every cell provider and has many different models and options to choose from depending on the size of the house. They even have an optional antenna you can install on your roof to give cell coverage everywhere around your house. It's the best choice, and cheaper than most carriers will offer you.



Wi-Fi Calling and SMS


Wi-Fi calling is a feature you might remember from some years ago, but it's coming back with a vengeance. At the moment, in the US, only T-Mobile offers Wi-Fi calling for both Android phones and the iPhone. Sprint only offers Wi-Fi calling for select Android phones. AT&T and Verizon have announced plans to activate Wi-Fi calling in 2015.
Essentially, WI-Fi calling allows your smartphone to receive and place calls and communicate via text messages over a Wi-Fi network. Your home probably has Wi-Fi, so Wi-FI calling will let you use your existing wireless router instead of needing a new, specialized device. You can just improve your Wi-Fi signal strength, and all your devices will benefit!
Wi-Fi calling works transparently. When your phone is on Wi-Fi and has a poor cellular signal, it will connect to the Wi-Fi network and your phone calls and text will be sent and arrive over the Wi-Fi network. When you leave the Wi-Fi network, your phones and calls will be sent over the cellular network as usual. This is all designed to hand-off automatically, so you could start a phone call on your Wi-Fi network and your phone would automatically hand off to the cellular network as you walk out the door, with no interruptions.



WI-FI calling will also work on other WI-Fi networks, so it's helpful if you ever end up in another place where you have a poor cellular signal but have Wi-Fi. To use this, you'll need to ensure your phone has Wi-Fi calling support and that it's enabled. Android phones from T-Mobile and Sprint will often include this feature, so look up how to enable it on your specific model of Android phone.
The iPhone 6 has built-in Wi-Fi calling, although it currently only functions on T-Mobile. AT&T and Verizon plan to support it in 2015. To enable this feature on an iPhone, open the Settings screen, tap Phone, tap Wi-Fi Calling, and activate it.

WI-Fi calling seems to be the future goal the industry - T-Mobile, especially - is pushing towards. With Wi-Fi calling integrated into your phone, you don't need to buy a specialized device. Your home Wi-Fi router works. And, when you go somewhere else where you have a poor signal, all they need is a Wi-Fi network and you'll be able to get a phone calls and SMS messages through it.

IPhone Wi-Fi only works when it's really close to my home's router...


Home routers don't broadcast the wifi that far. Most places that have super strong signals also have what they call a wireless extender. That's an extra piece that broadcasts the signal even further.

That's the main problem though. Home wifi isn't that strong.

YouTube Flash player constantly buffers even if un-nessesary


The best way is to have a DSL or cable connection..You can also use a wireless signal (with a very strong signal)...It buffers when it is downloading the video and the slower your internet connection, the more buffering it will do...also try closing all the other windows except the youtube window and always keep your memory clean using the internet options "delete browsing history"
