Why doesn't my wifi automatically connect?
dmma

I have a dual band router that I use to acess the Internet when at home. Only one of the two signals will connect and stay connected. Neither will connect automatically.

I've tried various things including: turning the WFI botton on, checking airplane mode, checking 'manage network' (shows 'forget' & 'manage'), restarting and reseting the phone.

I'm not sure what I'm missing. I am fairly new to all this, so any advice, (even if I've already tried it), would be greatly appreciated.

dmma,

Staying connected to WiFi can be crucial. When it comes to connection, it's all about compatibility. Here's a link to assist with connecting: http://spr.ly/65838acjL What happens?

I've tried various solutions. The problem still exists. Occasionally it will automatically connect, but not always which causes me to use my data. Ugh!

Rebooting didn't work. I also tried reseting my phone. Still not connecting unless I connect it manually.

Hi,

I have tried deleting the Wi-Fi and reconnecting. I also tried resetting the phone, but no luck there either. No one else in the family seems to be having this problem, just me.

When was the last time that you cleared the cache partition?

When you restart the phone hold  Volume up-Power-Home

then use the volume button to go down til clear cache partition is

highlighted. Then use the power key then the volume down to say yes then

the power button again. Now just hit the power button where it says reboot the phone

after the cache has been cleared. It will not change any of your phone settings.

It just gets rid of a lot of old files that are on the phone
