    I recently purchased a new router, about three months ago Linksys 6900. Yesterday I was waiting on Gmail and it never came but when I turned off my cell phone Wifi at home and used 4G it came right in.

    My yahoo, aol and Verizon e-mails work fine over WiFi and all my home computers that use e-mail are also fine, including gmail over Wifi, just not Gmail via cellphone.

    I was hoping someone might have an idea why and how I might be able to fix it.

    Thanks

    Do you have stuff that might selectively block certain programs (firewall, permission manager etc)

    Maybe try clearing data on gmail app?
