Mystery Wi-Fi issue still affecting Nexus models running Android 4.2.x

0. phoneArena 09 Feb 2013, 17:10 posted on

At the Google Code website, a long thread, now closed, details problems with a mystery Wi-Fi problem called issue 40065 which started in November and the last post was dated February 1st; apparently, the issue causes Wi-Fi to just cut out and stop working despite showing normal signal strength and there is no connection and no syncing...

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

Improbable. Nexus devices tend to not have software issues like this.

Yes, because your device hasn't experienced it that means there is no problem, of course.

Come on. There was a whole 4 months between 4.1 and 4.2, there were bound to be some problems, this being one of them. 4.2.2 or 4.2.3 should fix all the bugs, and all Nexus owners will be happy.

there IS a wifi issue in new nexus devices but if you or anyone else is suffering from the issue, just install wifi manager and use it as your wifi toggle tool... and the problem is resolved

The iPhone doesn't have WiFi anymore haha. Apple's revolutionary iOS 6.1 update pretty much disabled it and only let users browse over celular data.

Don't try to deflect the issue at hand away by bashing apple. The nexus is a great device, but not perfect. Issues affect these devices...it's part of tech.

The mention of using a Airport device is bashing apple. Great Logic!

My Nexus 4 hasn't had any Wi-Fi issues, but my Nexus 7 has all kinds of problems. I often get a "can not connect to proxy server" error in Chrome, which is fixed after turning off Wi-Fi for a bit. Thing is, I've had this problem for a few weeks (while running on 4.1.2).

Had the same problem with Google Chrome on my GS3 running stock 4.1.1. I un-rooted, installed Google Chrome beta, and now it seems to work perfectly.

Funny how this story uses every excuse under the sun to make the issue look small but their earlier article about problems in the Windows Phone store gets blown out of all proportion. Meanwhile, idiots like michal fisher and joshua topolsky wonder why we get so frustrated. There's a difference between highlighting a products flaws and spewing out vitriolic fanboy garbage to disparage a competing platform, which is 'something that happens regularly at the verge and pocketnow. I suggest WP users boycott those sites altogether; I know I have.

Don't pay attention at him, nor he has something, nor he will own something, he is just a troll. One day he says that he loves Apple, other day says that he hates Apple, in one comment he says that he will buy Sony Xperia Z and after few minutes in other comment he claims that he will buy Nokia Lumia 920 and so on and on...
