SOURCE: I have Samsung Galaxy 5 GT-15503. Android 2.1.

Wi-fi has been known to eat up the battery life on ALL devices it's on.
That's just the way it functions.
If you really want to save battery on your phone, disable wireless, bluetooth and 4G connections you may have, dim the screen to it's lowest setting and change the display timeout to a very low time.

My old zte after I factory reset it it wont let me connect to a network

Here are 4 solutions for your reference.
1. Restart your ZTE and reconnect Wi-fi on it
2. Forget the Wi-fi you are connecting
It is probable that there are something wrong with the Wi-fi which your phone is currently connected to. For example, the password of the network is changed but you are still using the old one. In this case, you can wipe the Wi-fi on your phone and then re-add it manually. The details are as below:
3. Check out the router
As we mentioned above, router plays an important role in mobile phone Wi-fi connection. So it is essential for you to check the running status of the router. If you have no idea whether it works well or not, you can try to restart the router or even reset your router to fix the issue. After that, you can reconnect your device to Wi-fi to see you can hook up to Wi-fi this time.
4. Reset Network Settings on ZTE
Another possibility of Wi-fi connection failure might be Wi-fi caches. It seems that Wi-fi does not create any caches on the device but this thought is wrong. Wi-fi networks produce cached data as well, especially when you connect a bunch of wireless networks on your phone. Hence, you are advised to reset the network settings on your phone to clear these caches.

Can I hot spot this phone to a wi fi

Hi Shelagh, If you're trying to connect to your home Wi-Fi The password is on the back of the modem, Write it down then go into your phone/tablet settings and tap "CONNECTIONS", Then tap on Wi-Fi and make sure it's switched on(should be a button there), Once switched on it should start scanning automatically for networks, but if not then there's a scan button there somewhere. When it finds the modem just tap on it and a small window opens for the password, Type in the pass word tap ok and you're connected... Bellow is a link to a short youtube video explaining pretty much the same thing I said..... I hope this helps..., CHEERS..

My wifi stop working,i dont know why???

Solutions to Common Android WI-Fi ProblemsFriends of mine who use an Android come over to me usually with problems related to their devices' Wi-Fi connectivity. Moreover, it's not a single isolated issue. There are all kinds of them they bring up. I usually fix their problem after few troubleshoots but today while I was fixing a problem on my device, I realized that it could happen to any one - even to my readers on Guiding Tech. Hence we are going to discuss four of the most common Android Wi-Fi problems and see the probable causes and solutions to them.
Android Cannot Scan a Wi-Fi Network Reason
There may be two reasons as to why your Android cannot scan a network automatically. The first reason may be that the network you are trying to connect to could be Ad-Hoc in nature. As most of the Android phones are not configured to work on Ad-Hoc networks but on access points, they don't scan them.
The second reason may be that the Wi-Fi network you are trying to connect to might be hidden for security reasons.
Solution
By default, Android does not support Ad-Hoc Wi-Fi network but many developers patch the wpa_supplicant file on Android in order for them to work. If you do a quick Google search you will be able to find if there's a fix available for your device but the fix can only be performed on a rooted phone. Furthermore, don't forget to back up your original wpa_supplicant file if at all your phones goes into foreclose or boot loops.
ad55c1b5-6c69-4c6f-bbc4-42d71b214047.png
If the problem is with the hidden network, you can try to add the network manually. In Android Wi-Fi settings open menu and tap to add a network manually. You must enter the correct SSID and authentication type and password in order to connect to the network. If both the credentials are correct, the Android phone will be able to connect to the network.
Wi-Fi Keeps Disconnecting Frequently Reason
The most obvious reason for the problem may be with the Wi-Fi Sleep Policy which disconnects your Wi-Fi every time your Android goes to sleep to save your battery's juice.
Solution
To manage Wi-Fi Sleep Policy, open Advance Wi-Fi settings on Android and tap the option Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep. Here, check the option Always to enjoy an uninterrupted connectivity, but you will have to compensate it with your battery life.
75ca1d6c-6a65-4f45-a239-1e913ecb07bc.png
If you are using any third-party app to save your battery, check if it's controlling your Wi-Fi and other radio services and configure accordingly.
Obtaining IP Address Infinite Loop Reason
I don't know the exact reason behind this, but it might be a bug in Android. I have seen many people getting this problem, and it gets kind of annoying when the problem does not gets fixed even after restarting the device.
Solution
First of all, you must restart your Wi-Fi router and see if that helps. Many people say that resetting the phone to factory state works but that's not an appropriate solution. Wi-Fi Fixer is an amazing Android app that can help you here. The app resets your Wi-Fi system files (same as when you reinstall the Wi-Fi drivers in Windows, or you disable and enable the Wi-Fi adapter) and services and helps you to connect to the network and obtain the IP address.

    wifi-fixer.png If you know the range of IP address the router is broadcasting, you may configure your Android to use static IP address while connecting to the network.
    Can't Connect to Internet using Wi-Fi Reasons
    There may be several reasons as to why you are not able to connect to the internet even when you are connected to the Wi-Fi. The reasons may be:
    • The router is not broadcasting internet services.
    • The IP address or the gateway is wrong.
    • Problem with the DNS settings.
    Solutions
    You may use another device to check if the router is actually broadcasting internet. Also you can configure the IP address, the gateway and DNS manually to connect as their might be problems with DHCP.
    Conclusion These are pretty much most of the Android problems one might encounter on his device and the probable solution one can try to fix the problem. I don't guarantee that you will fix the problem but it's a good start nonetheless. And most of the solutions should work actually.


Thanks .
