Re: Intermittent wifi problems on Xoom 2 ME

I'm also experiencing this issue. My Wifi shows as connected on My Xoom2 but it just idles. I get webpage not found errors on the browser.Motocast stops streaming, games stop updating (sdcard content ) when bought.


I have 2 laptops (1 wireless N and 1 Wireless G ) and 3 phones ( 2 Nokia N8's and a Huawei Blaze android phone all on wireless N ) in my household and they all connect via the WI-Fi without any issues. Only my Xoom2 ME has this issue.


I sometimes use my Xoom2 to play music through my EDrum Kit, streaming music via motocast and due to this fault I spend more time messing about trying to get the Xoom2 connected than I do drumming!!

But my tablet thinks it is up-to-date on 0.218.3...  Smiley Sad

Re: Intermittent wifi problems on Xoom 2 ME

My Wi-Fi problem is almost the same as everyone elses. The Xoom has no problem linking to my Netgear DGN1000. But it keeps rescanning for the network every few seconds. It's connected, scanning, connected, scanning. So it's never connected long enough to actually do anything over wi-fi. A pretty basic requirement for a wi-fi only Tablet. I've updated the Netgear firmware and am now just another frustrated wi-filess Xoom owner. The work-arounds all seem to be based on switching the Netgear off, somthing I do every night anyway. 


 Does anyone have any more ideas before I ask Motorola to take it back?


It did connect once long enough to get an update. Its Android 3.2.


 


Help

Re: Intermittent wifi problems on Xoom 2 ME

Everyone, Heads Up!


 


Experiencing data drop-outs where it looks like the X2 is uploading only?


 


You could spend forever resetting the wi-fi when it drops...


 


Or you could push it down to 2.4Ghz in Advanced options.


 


Saved my X2 from going through a wall.


 


hit Thanks if I helped
