Help with Wifi and 4G?
I just recently got a Connect 4G/LTE (MetroPCS) and it is a great phone, except for the fact that I cannot stay on Wifi. No matter what I do, the phone will connect to Wifi successfully, work for anywhere from 1-3 minutes and drop Wifi, usually to attempt to pick-up 4G. I have NEVER seen it show me on 3G, I am not sure if it is supposed to or not. I have done the best I can on my own, and I do not know where to go from here. I do not wish to root my phone, but I can if possible.
I have tried using tools to tweak settings, I have upgraded firmware on my router, I have tried WSA-PSK (AES) only security on my router, I have set the sleep policy to "never". I have also reset my modem and router several times. I am not sure if a static IP will work in my situation either.
I am pretty experienced with computers, just new to Android, and have worked a small amount with flashing tools (although never successfully).
If anyone can give me any advice, please. The default Metro EasyWifi is still installed, I am not sure if I can anything about it.
Here is some of the OS info for extra use:
Model Number: LG-MS840
Android Version: 2.3.6
