Default WiFi constantly connects & disconnects with WPA2 security

When my router is set to WPA the Droidx connects and stays connected. But when I change to WPA2 it keeps connecting and disconnecting every few seconds. This leaves me with a choice of less security for my entire network, or no wifi for the Droidx. I have seen this problem mentioned on the Motorola support page, but I have not heard of any resolution. Does anyone have a fix for this? I am using the new Froyo 2.2 OTA update.

Same here , I have to use WPA-PSK (TKIP) or it keeps turning off and on. Hope we can get some help.

Also I only had this problem recently happen (maybe starting this month sometime)

I've had this happen to me exactly once - turned WIFI off and then back on and it hasn't happened since. Give it a shot.

I think I remember reading that turning on, "Settings > Wireless & networks > Wi-Fi settings > Menu > Advanced > Enable Auto IP" can sometimes help WiFi connection issues. I think its mention was intended more for those using Wireless-N, but it shouldn't hurt to enable it if it isn't already.

I have tried everything!!! I just read in the Motorola support forums that they became aware of this shortly before the 2.2 release and will have a fix in their next ota update (whenever that may be. That means that everyone should be having this problem. I know the people complaining on the Motorola site, have Netgear routers, and so do I, so it is possible that it only affects people with Netgear routers.

Interesting.. I've got a Netgear router and just had it happen again. Did what Paycer suggested and it's fixed... for now.

I tried it on mine, it appeared to work momentarily, and then went right back to connect and disconnect.

Thumbs down

Hi All,

I got my brand new Droid X three weeks ago with 2.1 installed. It's been working 100% fine for the last three weeks until today when I received the 2.2 OTA update. The phone is stock, not rooted.

When I got home, all hell broke loose with WiFi. My Linksys router and the Droid X were connecting without ONE drop all month until tonight when I got home and started tinkering with 2.2 to see what's changed. Unfortunately, the WiFi connection connects, authenticates, gets an IP, drops, scans, connects, authenticates, etc. over and over and over. It's maddening!

So I have been working just fine all this time and 2.2 hits and BAM! Nothing but pain. I also have WPA2 for security and all my other devices are connecting just fine. Droid X is the only problem child at the moment and the only thing that's changed in the last 10 hours or so.

redgtconv mentioned this was noted at the Motorola forums so I'll look there next (if you can tell me where to look, I'd appreciate the pointer). If anyone has a fix please let us know!

Thanks,

Kevin

Found a single setting on my router that I changed to get the Droid X to connect. I'm not entirely happy with the change but it works so I guess I'll go with it for now and see how it works out.

I had my router set on 2.4GHz mode to be Mixed (B/G/N). Changing it to N-only did nothing. Changing it to G-Only finally allowed the phone to connect. It's been connected since last night and I was able to successfully download all my apps again (since I tried a hard reset yesterday morning) and it's been connected all day so far.

Let us know if this works for you. It's odd that it did when it was working fine for three weeks on the same router/phone under 2.1. Must be a change in 2.2 though it should still be able to connect to a mixed B/G/N router in my opinion.

Good luck!

Kevin

Same exact thing happened to me as soon as I received 2.2. I am using a Netgear WNDR3700 router. I'm not willing to drop down to G only though as I have many other N clients on my home network. This is unacceptable, and I hope a fix or workaround is released or discovered soon.

Just registered to say thanks for this. My wifi was bouncing along on it's own. Forcing this setting to enable Auto IP seems to have stabilized it as it's not bounced since. Thanks, somegeek

I have had major issues with wifi connecting and disconnecting as well. After many days and hours, I believe I have found the issue. For some odd reason when I changed the 2.4ghz Wireless mode from 'up to 300Mbs' to the '54Mbs' legacy mode all was fixed and there are no more issues. I tried to run the router in 130Mbs and still had problems, but changing it to 54 definately was the cure. Hope this helps some people.

Mine will connect ONLY to my 300mbps Dlink router. The damn Fios router I need to use with the Fios DVR manager will NOT work with my X. It worked for a while, then i had to SBF and now its shot :P
Every other computer in the house connects to it almost instantly.

Problem, phone will connect and then disconnect, this will happen all the time. Changes to WPA2 to WAP and so on did not help at all.

Wifi Router: Thomson TG789vn.
Phone Samsung S5570, Android 2.3.4. Same phone model with android 2.1 dot not work also.

Router Wifi settings : Configuration

Interface Enabled: Yes

Power Reduction Enabled: No

Physical Address: 08:76:ff:96:d5:e2

Network Name (SSID): Vandra Bussijaam

Interface Type: 802.11b/g/n

Actual Speed [Mbps]: 54

Band: 2.4GHz

Channel Selection: Auto

Region: Europe

Channel: 1

Allow multicast from Broadband Network: No

WMM: Disabled

Security

Broadcast Network Name: Yes

Allow New Devices: New stations are allowed (automatically)

Security Mode: WPA-PSK

WPA-PSK Preshared Key: XXXXXXXXX

WPA-PSK Encryption: AES

WPA-PSK Version: WPA2

NB; also tested it with Android 2.3 phones like Samsung Galagy II and meny others. Local IPS informed me that this on known problem. I belive that android phones do not work correctly with Wifi G and N...

Any ideas?

This worked for me, but each set-up is different. I installed a free app called KeepWiFi, which forces the phone to maintain the connection.

No harm in trying it.

I'm surprised more people don't notice this. I bet it's a problem with every DX.

Don't only go down to WPA, but also make sure you are set to TKIP, not AES and it should not disconnect anymore.

I have home and work set to that and no problems. Forgot I even had this issue until yesterday when I was on a WPA2 router and I constantly got disconnected.

Solution: Can't find the link but this worked for me to solve this problem. Change the channel that your router is broadcasting on. If three are too many networks in the same bandwidth Android seems to have trouble. You can use the free app wifi analyzer to see where the free bandwidth (channels) are. Hope this helps!

No, that didn't work for me. I'm convinced this is a problem with the device. I haven't had any issues on wpa/tkip in months.

Thank you for this! I tried the free app, it installs instantly and I'm holding onto the wifi connection for longer than any other time! I highly recommend KeepWifi

This workaround may help. Find a router which doesn't keep disconnecting and connectto it. Open the remembered router which keeps disconnecting to modify the settings. Turn off DHCP. Set the IP address to something random between 192.168.10.10 and 192.168.10.199. I used 192.168.10.167. Save the settings. Now try connecting again to the problem router. It should stay connected.

The reason why the system keeps kicking the device off the network is due ip address conflict. Assigning the ip address manually resolves the issue, at least for me.

Guys,

Just to let you know I fixed this by setting 'New stations are allowed (automatically)' on my Thompson router

Obviously, make sure you've got encryption set before you enable this.

Default Motorola Electrify/Photon

I had this same problem. My router's WAN port died and I bought a new dual-band. Everything else would connect just fine except for my Moto Electrify. Wife's Samsung Galaxy Mesmerize, Wii & two laptops had no problem. But my phone would go through the "scanning", "connecting", "disconnected" cycle constantly.

I tried everything. I deleted all connections, tried KeepWifi, and finally did a factory reset on my phone. Still the same problem. I finally found a mention about mixed mode on the router. Logged in to the router and told it to only use 802.11n. Moto connects just fine.

Since I don't have any old devices on a/b/g I think my problem is solved.

Thanks to Lex, my DroidX is on wifi again! It was dropping the signal about once per minute and would say "scanning... connecting... connected... disconnected..." over and over. Switching from AES to TKIP did it!

Tried a lot of other fixes, Thanx Lex!

Default Try Broadcasting SSID

I know this thread is dated but wanted to post the solution I discovered yesterday. I have a Droid RAZR Maxx that replaced an original DROID. The original DROID had no problems staying connected to my home Wifi (Linksys router with WPA2 enabled). The RAZR Maxx had problems with signal loss.

I downloaded Wifi Analyzer from Google Play (Android App store) and found that every couple seconds (like clockwork) the signal would drop to 0 but the router phone was still connected to the router. After some research and trial/error I turned on SSID Broadcast (formerly I was not broadcasting the SSID) and that fixed the issue. The signal now stays strong.

Good luck.

I know this is an old thread but I just discovered I am having the same problem. Scanning...connecting....disconnecting. I didn't realize that my wifi was not connecting because I have a widget that is supposed to indicate whether things are on or off... and the wifi shows green even when it's not connected. I guess it is always on and scanning but doesn't actually connect. So, I really don't know how long this has been going on for, although I know it was definitely working when I first set up my phone.

My wireless router is Netgear. I have a DroidX, Froyo, recently rooted. I have not flashed a custom ROM.

I've been trying to follow some of the recent suggestions in this thread, but admit I have a hard time understanding some of them. I tried setting the IP manually... that didn't make any difference. There were some suggestions that I think referred to messing with the router but I don't know. Like, broadcasting SSID -- where is that done?

I got the router several years ago and set it up on a different computer from the one I have now. I thought I was reasonably technically savvy but configuring the router was the most technically challenging thing I'd ever had to deal with. After a number of conversations with nice representatives with very thick accents, I finally got it going. That computer crashed completely several months ago, and when I got my new computer I didn't have any of the programs, including my Netgear configuration. So now I have no idea how to go back and mess with anything. All I know is that I can hook my computers into the wifi, but apparently not my phone.

I have the Netgear disk. Should I reinstall the software?

Thank you for this suggestion! I downloaded it yesterday and it seems to have done the trick!

It's so simple, too. For anybody else who wants to try it, turn off your wi-fi first, then open the app and select Enable. Then turn your wi-fi back on and let it connect.

I've had similar problems with my Samsung galaxy android, I've been trying to connect to my WiFi but it doesn't let me through it just disconnects me and asks me to enter the password again, then it says something like: "Disconnected, secured with WPA,WPA2 etc" I've been trying to figure out the problem but had no luck. :/

From what I've learned from the other posters here, try updating the firmware on your router, and if it's a newer dual bandwidth, try broadcasting in only one bandwidth at a time and see if it helps.

Default Droid X Wifi Drops WPA2 Possible Fix for root users

Droid X running 4.5.621 Rooted
This fixed my Wifi drops but may drain the battery faster on Wifi.

Using Root Explorer browse to /System/etc/wifi
Edit the 4 ini files tiwlan*.ini

Change the 3 lines in each file.
Note: They look like copies but each file is slighly different

AutoPowerModeDozeMode = 2

AutoPowerModeActiveTh = 8

AutoPowerModeDozeTh = 4

Some people may edit these files on a PC and copy them back to the phone. Do not use Notepad, Workpad, etc because they will destroy the formatting. Use Editpad Lite or Notepad++ (Not the regular Notepad).

Also verify that Settings/Wireless & Networks/Wifi settings then tap menu/Advanced/Wifi Sleep Policy and set to never.

ok well try this, i was trying to use the password from my Belkin router, with my phone (htc one V) and i was going about this all wrong. turns out when i clicked on the wifi connection ( and i mean your wifi connection) and scrolled down to show advanced settings and turned on WPS and set it to PIN from access point, from there i took the PIN from the bottom of my router and it worked, i was very happy i got it to work.
Hopefuly this works out for you peoples
