Default WiFi Autoconnect

Hey everyone

I move around a lot and currently don't have a data plan (just WiFi) so I wanted to know if there's an app that autoconnects to WiFi when in range 'cause the default sony app disconnects a lot and doesn't connect automatically.

Hi, I have my XP10 Mini Pro since one week and I connected it to my router at home. Everytime I come home it automatically connects to my router.

The phone will automatically detect networks when in range. It will only auto connect when either it's an unencrypted network or you have already provided the passkey previously. As you say you move around a lot, I doubt if you will have the passkey for each of the networks in range hence the reason for not connecting.

I do move around a lot, perhaps I phrased my problem wrong, the thing is my WiFi will disconnect every time the screen is locked (and before you ask my WiFi sleep policy is set to never), what's most unsettling is that after it disconnects it says that the network is not in range even though I'm less than a meter away from my router at home.

How long does it say you are not in range for? If the network has disconnected, the phone and router will need to re-establish a connection and the phone will need to request a new ip address? It is not unusual for this to take upto 30 seconds or so.

The Xperia X10 Mini is exactly what it says on the tin - a "mini" version of the original S.E X10. We first come across this bitesize handset when pictures leaked back in January 2010, at the time it was codenamed "Robyn" but wh... Read More
