I need to develop an application which scans the wifi access points and also gives their signal strength.I wrote the code for scanning the access points but I dont know what packages to use for measuring the displaying strength.Can anyone please tell me how to display the signal strength, also give me the code for that.
I am very new to android. Need help from Android Developers. Can anyone PLEASE help me how to find current WiFi signal strength in android. I'm trying very hard to get android to display the signal strength. Also, i would like to know if this works on emulator. If possible please provide sample code. I found out the following link but I am unable to write a simple program to display signal strength on emulator/phone. http://developer.android.com/reference/android/net/wifi/WifiInfo.html.
I am using the Galaxy grand I9082 Duos. I have a simple problem in WIFI signal strength, on this device signal strength showing very weak for a distance of 3 to 4 meets away from the wifi router in the next room. But Laptop shows good strength at same point. If I take my mobile close to router shows very good strength.
I am facing a problem with the wifi. I initially connected the iPad in my office on the upper flower where Internet is through wifi router and the Internet worked perfect. But on my lower floor I have an access point installed to get better signal strength. My android phones wifi , my laptops wifi etc work nicely through this access point and get nice signal strength but when I took my iPad on the lower floor it is not workingthrough the access point . The Internet just stops. When I saw in the dhcp settings of iPad wifi I can see it's not able to get right ip address and also not able to retrieve the router address. When I turn off the access points the Internet works again withthe direct signal from the main upper floor router even if the signal strength is low. What shula I do to use the wifi through the access point? I never faced this problem with my android phone or a windows laptop. They configure on their own and I can use Internet both through router directly and access point also.
In one of my application I need to display all the Wifi and bluetooth devices which are paired to my mobile and it's Signal Strengths .Wifi side it is ok for me to display signal strength(RSSI).But i got a problem at Bluetooth side.I searched for the method which is suitable for this task,i found one method that is intent.getShortExtra(BluetoothDevice.EXTRA_RSSI, Short.MIN_VALUE); It is displaying only the new device RSSI which is not paired to my mobile.Is there any idea for getting all bluetooth devices RSSI.Plz give me idea or source code ?
Phone: Rooted Samsung Moment.So I'm literally 6 feet away through one wall from a WiFi hotspot where I work. The campus is set up so that there is an unprotected WiFi access that is used for downloading configuration software. The other signal is protected and can be accessed using a common login. The configuration software is not needed if you know how to setup WiFi. Here's the problem: the unprotected signal is the only one that the Moment will acknowledge, which is useless because it doesn't provide any internet access. The protected signal does not show up.Except when I use WiFi Analyzer when I can see both signals (which bounce around between 45 dBm and 60 dBm). I've tried to add the internet WiFi signal manually (WPA2) which is supposed to be a trick that works, but that's a no-go.Why can I see the signal on WiFi Analyzer, it be the same signal strength as the other signal, yet I can't see nor add it in the Android WiFi Settings? It's bugging the hell out of me.
I am building an application reading the signal strength of each available WiFi access point. I've written code like: wifi = (WifiManager) getSystemService(Context.WIFI_SERVICE); // Get WiFi status WifiInfo info = wifi.getConnectionInfo(); textStatus.append(" WiFi Status: " + info.toString()); // List available networks List<WifiConfiguration> configs = wifi.getConfiguredNetworks(); However, I have two problems: In debugging, configs only contains one connection. However, I can see that there are several APs available in the system's wifi setting. i.e. configs is an incomplete list. I don't know how to get the signal strength in Wifi Configuration. I am using HTC Hero and Android 1.5.
I just updated latest OS on my iPhone 3GS and now WiFi struggles to work correctly unless I disable Bluetooth. Even when I am near the WiFi access point. Never had issue before. Never had problems with signal strength or locking on to know WiFi access points before. Only just have issue after the last OS update. Info: iPhone 3GS, iOS 5.1.1
I installed Wireshark 1.2.7 on my Lenovo X61 tablet PC running Ubuntu 10.04 lucid during the quest for a decent signal strength meter for available wifi access points. What is a good software or hardware method to TEST WiFi strength & power?But I can't get Wireshark to do the simplest thing, which is to "Capture Interfaces".
I'm trying to get web access from my E61 via wi-fi. I have successfuly created an access point for the wi-fi, and that has worked ok, shows me it's connected and a good signal strength. But whenever I try to access the web, it always connects via one of the GPRS access points. How do I tell it to use the WiFi access point?
I'm writing an android application that collects cell signal strengths.I am having trouble getting the "current" cell signal strength, but I don't have any problem getting the "neighboring" cell signal strengths.To get the current cell signal strength, I created a PhoneStateListener and implemented the onSignalStrengthChanged callback.It works, but not very well.It seems like the signal strength hardly ever changes, and resolution jumps to only a few numbers.I would accept the answer that the resolution of the signal strength hardware is coarse, but when I use the TelephonyManager's getNeighboringCellInfo() method, it works much better.The signal strength readings from neighboring cells change frequently, and they have much better resolution.So, how can I get the current cell signal strength in the same way that I am getting the neighboring cell strengths?It seems odd to me that the functionality of the neighboring cells is better than the current cell.
Today I uploaded the firmware through Sony PC Companion to Android Version 4.0.4 build 4.1.B.0.587. After that my wireless connectivity that was working fine, stopped working. My Wifi is secured and before I give the password, it says the signal strength is Excellent. After that, it says Signal strength is Poor and tries to keep connecting.
Three problmes 1) Weaker signal strength 2) Ipad doesn't connect to wifi after wake up 2) apple.com takes forever to load.
Find an application to show me the strength of the incoming wifi signal in my Macpro. Info:MacBookPro, Mac OS X (10.7.3)
I'm trying to write a program that can read the signal strength of a bluetooth device linked to my android 2.0 handset. Doesnt seem like android exposes anyway to get the RSSI unless it is during discovery. Is there any other way to get the signal strength of the device after the device has been detected? I read of a way to do it using NDK to access the underlying BlueZ API, but I dont know how to use that. Any help would be appreciated.
I know that it's possible to determine the data connection type (WIFI/or cellular) through Android, but is it possible to determine the cellular connection type and strength? I have an app that downloads some images and I have found that on GPRS or on 3G with weak signal that this download process slows up the app unacceptably. What I want to do is say that if you have either WIFI or a strong and fast data connection then download; otherwise display a default placeholder image.
What is the deal with all the themes for the 8320 when it comes to switching on WiFi/UMA mode? There are only a few themes that I've found so far that I like but none of them show the signal strength bar when the phone is switched to WiFi/UMA, it's very annoying! If I select a theme that comes with the phone, it works! When are people going to update their themes to work correctly with WiFi/UMA phones so that we can see our signal bar strength?
I'm using 9.10 on a laptop that has Win7 in another partition. Within Win7 I get strong full bars for the wifi signal strength. On the same laptop in the same location, I get only 2 bars (low) wifi signal strength when I'm in Ubuntu 9.10. I'm using the wifi transceiver built into my Acer Aspire 5732Z laptop.
Is there any class or method for getting cdma signal strength I got for gsm but not for cdma in android??
When I am at home my signal service isn't great so I usually switch to WiFi. I'll get the "WiFi Networks Available" toolbar notice, select my home network, but then nothing happens, and it doesn't connect. When my home network is listed under the WiFi setting menu, the radio signal Icon says it has solid signal strength, but still, after I hit "Connect" nothing happens. Thus, I get stuck using 3G when WiFi capabilities were one of my main attractions to the phone :S. Again, the WiFi was fully functional (Outlook Exchange included) until recently.
1. For example; when working in a multiple-AP (access point) environment, the phone will confuse itself about which AP to use and will remain linked to a more distant, and thus comparatively weaker, AP when one, or more, with a many times stronger signal is available. (See image below at right; WiFi fan icon shows weaker connection while much stronger one is available.)2. Also; it seems that the ICS WiFi system can even confuse itself about which AP it is actually using. ee the photo attached below at left where the settings reports that it has excellent signal strength from an AP that is a few feet away. Note that the WiFi fan icon in the notification bar is showing the signal strength of a more distant AP. There are times when this situation can be reversed; where the fan shows strong but the settings shows weak.
I bought the device few days ago and on very same day updated to Android ver. 3.2. I use internet over my home Wifi and have a Netgear - WGR614 router. The browsing speed is very very slow and most sites dont open.The signal strength shown in xoom is - (-105 dBm 3 asu).Is this a issue with Android 3.2 update or my home wifi is weak? Would i be able to reset the tab to the original version?
My galaxy R connecting to my college wifi showing full signal strength but no data transfer my browser dosent work neither market... All my college mates having samsung android mobiles are facing same problem to name sgs2 , galaxy ace ,pop...all are having the same problem..but all apple divices are able to connect to wifi ??? Browser (app store was still not working) was working when we installed "wifi aid" app but its no longer in market, tried all wifi fixing apps....
I have noticed that my wifi signal strength is crap. I can be in the same room about 4 ft away from my router and my signal strength is 2 bars on my wifi. Also on my 3g coverage I am at 1-2 bars max. When I 1st got my phone never had this problem. Any ideas?
I'm currently writing on some piece of code in android 2.1 that is supposed to measure the signal strength of the gsm signals. what i need is some kind of list with some kind of network IDs matching the corresponding signal strengths.
So after connecting to my wifi, (which I have been able to do forever) it gives me the wifi signal strength up in the top left corner, signal strength is good, but internet does nothing. Info: iPhone 3GS, iOS 5.1
My E90 has a VERY weak WiFi signal, and in places I regularly use a 9500 and my laptop with no problem, my E90 simply will not work e.g. from first floor to ground floor. If I move closer to the Wireless router, then it is fine on both Email and Web.So it seems purely that the strength on E90 is far weaker than 9500. Is there any way to alter signal strength in the various WiFi settings?Or is this yet another shortcoming of E90 over 9500?
I have a Samsung Galaxy S, running Froyo. I have an issue with WiFi handover, so I am posting here (in addition to the SGS section) in case this is an Android issue rather than an SGS-specific issue. I have two WiFi Access Points (APs) at home, both using the same SSID, but on different channels. I expected the SGS to automatically move (handover) from one AP to another based on signal strengths that vary depending on where I am. However, this does not happen. It stays on the AP that it is connected to, even when moving to very poor signal levels. I need to manually trigger this (e.g by disconnecting from the AP). Any configuration or Android app. By the way, I also tried configuring the APs with different SSIDs, but this didn't work either.
So the set up is as follows, my mba my ipad, in a wifi network with so and so signal, the ipad, has less signal strength showing, but that's not the important thing, the important thing is that every other day or so, maybe more frequently, I have to re-enter the wifi password. Is this a bug? Where the heck does it store the pass?It's a times like these I am missing keychain access.
I am trying to figure out how to get the current signal strength of the Android 2.1 device. So far I can only find access to the SignalStrength object if I am listening for a change. I don't want to have to wait for the strength to change in order to see what the strength is.
I have just set up a Canon Pixma MP620 to work wirelessly over wifi on my network. The printer works fine when it is right next to the router (a Netgear). However, when I move the printer to another room away from the router, the signal strength goes to nothing/unstable and I cannot print wirelessly. My MacBook retains full wifi signal strength in this same room so the router coverage would appear to be okay. Is there anyone using this printer over wifi where the printer is in a different room to the access point/router? Is there something wrong with my printer?
Signal strength does NOT seem to be the issue with our Wifi-3G model, but it DOES disconnect. Signal (WiFi)is almost always 5 bars, in and around the house. Since the pad was just received Friday afternoon we have only played around with it for a day or two. Not sure if the disconnects occur after playing games (not using WiFi) then when going back to say, checking the weather (using WiFi) it has problems connecting. Could software be disabling this WiFi to save battery life?
I am trying to write a very simple Android application that checks the signal strength of the current cell. So far, I have only found something called getNeighboringCellInfo(), but I'm not really sure if that includes the current cell.How do I get the CURRENT cell signal strength in Android?Does getNeighborCellInfo() get the current cell? It doesn't seem like it based on the results that I have been able to get with it.
I'm writing an app to monitor detailed radio data coming off the phone that I'm sending back to my own server that is collecting this information from a number of different devices. The purpose is to analyze the data from all devices, and generate a kind of "real-time network coverage" pattern. The data I'm looking for is "Eb/No". From what I understand this is interchangeable with the term "Ec/Io". My first approach lead me to the new Signal Strength (http://developer.android.com/reference/ android/telephony/SignalStrength.html) support in Android 2.1. This is great, however you can only get Ec/Io values for "CDMA" and "EVDO" networks. My problem is that I'm on ATT, where I'm "WCDMA". I was hoping Android would give me the "CDMA" values from Signal Strength changes (since "WCDMA" is somewhat similiar to "CDMA"), however the update has the gsm flag set to true, and it's giving me values for the gsm signal strength and gsm bit error rate instead. For example, in my PhoneStateListener: CODE:....................
I have some doubs about the Signal strength icon display as below: 1) Is it possible to change the signal strength icon? 2) Which is the API/method dealing with the icon updation in the status bar , based on the signal strength values received by the phone from the network?
I got this phone yesterday, and everything's been working great except for wifi.I have wifi at home, and the phone is able to connect to it (obtain an ip address, show signal strength, etc.), but internet is not available.i cannot browse or use the market application because it's not really connected to the internet.I only have this problem at home, however. Wifi on my x10 works great everywhere else.My brother's phone and both of our laptops are able to access wifi at home, so I'm thinking it's a settings problem on my phone?
I believe there is a bug in the signal strength indication on the Fascinate, the one that shows the signal strength in -dBm. You can see the signal strength of the cell signal on the Menu, Settings, About, Status screen. Or you can place a widget on your Home screen. There are several widgets available, I'm using Mobile Signal Widget.I have a network extender, which basically creates a cell tower right in your home. With my Motorola Droid, I used to get signal strengths down to about -50 something and 60's in indicated signal strength. I can hold both of our Fascinates right next to the network extender's antenna and they will read no better than -86 dBm. So far I've seen signal strengths from -86 dBm to -106 dBm (terrible).I believe there is a bug in the software (Baseband) on the Fascinate. Previously, I thought the hardware (antenna/radio) wasn't very good, but now it may be software related. Has anyone seen a signal strength stronger than -86 dBm on the Fascinate?
Is there a testing app on the app store for wifi signal strength, or something in the jb community?Has anyone returned an ipad due to poor signal strength, and if so, how can you make a case for it? How can you show it's bellow threshold.I've been pretty disappointed with the ipads wifi component. I have an ipad 2, I ve had friends over with ipads, and I 've had another ipad 3 (which i ve returned due to screen issues) in my sitting room, where my circa 2006 imac is. In all of them the signal was much lower than that of the imac, and you could tell from the no of concentric arcs appearing in the wifi signal icon. But is there a way to test if an ipad has particularly problematic wifi reception? (I want to preempt suggestions about dsl speed tests which don't actually test the wifi link itself)
If I walk away from the router (Apple Airport Extreme) with the iPod, the signal strength gradually goes from max (3 "bars") to min (just a dot) in about 75 ft. If I walk back towards the router, the signal strength indicator gradually comes back up to 3 bars. With the iPad, if I do the same thing, the signal goes from max to min suddenly, not gradually, and it does that at less than half the distance of the iPod. After just a short while at min, it then drops the Wifi signal entirely. Also, with the iPad, with the signal strength indicator at min, if I walk back towards the router, it never comes back up to max, but stays at min. The router doesn't need new firmware. I also played with the display brightness setting (as suggested by Apple), but of course (is it April 1st???), that didn't make any difference.

Purchased a new iPad 32G WiFi only back a couple of months ago. Never had a problem with the wifi and in fact it seemed to have good signal coverage compared to my other wireless devices. In my home my wireless G coverage is very good and all my devices (laptops, iPhones, desktops) connect to to the router with "excellent" signal strength. It was no surpriset that my iPad showed "excellent" signal strength to my router as well. Each time I powered on my iPad at home the wireless signal was already connected with full signal bars before I was even able to log in to my ipad. A couple of days ago I noticed that when I booted my iPad and logged on, the wireless was not connecting. In fact it took about a mintue to connect and when it did it was only showing 1 signal bar. While using it I noticed that it kept dropping the signal then it would come back with only one signal bar. I immediately rebooted my router and checked my other wireless devices and all were still showing "excellent" signal strenght to the router
I am using ralink WiFi driver in android, I am able to connect to the access-point using the Wireless Settings provided in the Android, But once I connect to the network and restart the WiFi. I have to reconnect manually by providing the authentication key. WiFi Manager is not remembering the last access point used. I am using the Settings application provided by the android.
I work on a remote site and live in a Donga (A portable bedroom) These Donga's have thick walls and i can barely get our camps wifi, let alone any Phone signal. I have noticed that my mobile phone can get a medium wireless signal strength if i place it on the window cill and it got me wondering if it could be possible to use my android phone as a wifi repeater so that i could use the internet on my laptop inside my Donga. Long story short, is it at all possible to have my Android phone connected to a wifi network, and then my laptop tethering with the android phone but using wifi data and not cellular?
i'm beginning to think that in 2.2, if you have a lower signal strength (such as i do in my house), it can't tell your location anymore. in my house, wiht 2.1, it always told me my town. now, with 2.2, it says, fro the most part with a lower signal, "current location." however, when i turn wifi on, it'll tell me my town right away, leading me to believe that since my wifi signal is great in my house, it's giving me the correct location.
I'm just looking for some input re: the ability of the ipad to pick up wifi vs iPhone 4 and 3GS. My iPhone 4 has a great signal strength throughout the house, however both my 3GS and iPad only get a very weak signal and no signal at all in some parts of the house. Is it normal that the iphone 4 is so much better at picking up wifi, or is there a problem with my 3GS & iPad? Has anyone else experienced this? Thanks for your comments
I have added my home WiFi connection and I am able to select it. When I try to access the internet it looks like it is using the WiFi connection but then it switches to 3G. I am basing this on the fact that on the upper left corner I first see the Wi-Fi signal, which is full strength, but then the symbol changes to 3G. Am I understanding this correctly and if so, why isn't the connection staying on the WiFi connection.
I'm developing an application to read signal strength of 3G, GSM, Wifi. Is there any classes that provides us with the RSSI of 3G signal and GSM signal? The WifiManager Class provides the RSSI for wifi, but I can't find any for 3G and GSM. If there is no classes provided, is it difficult to start from scratch?
Firstly, I have set the default numbers for voice calls, SMS, email etc for all of my contacts. Yet every time I send a message or make a call I get prompted to choose the number. The default number settings are not being used. When I check the contacts the default number settings are all correct and haven't been lost. Secondly, I am now on my second E75 handset as the first one suffered from extremely low signal strength. This one is the same. I am currently waiting for a new SIM to see if there is any improvement. Where my previous Nokia N82 and N79 both had a signal strength of about 25% - 75%, the E75 spends most of its showing 'No network coverage'. I am on Vodafone in the UK and apparently they don't use USIM cards on their 3G network, just SIM cards. Does anyone know if this would make a difference? In areas of good reception the phone works fine with full 3G/3.5G etc. Lastly, there seems to be some inconsistencies when applications access the Internet. I have set up access points for GPRS, WAP, and wifi. I have also set up the 'Destinations' with the order in which I want the access points to be used. This works great for the web application which happily connects via my wifi if in range or via GPRS if not. However the email application seems to insist on using specific access points NOT the destinations. This is really annoying as it checks email using GPRS even though I am within range of my wifi network. To change the access point to use wifi means changing both the incoming and outgoing access points for every email account and then changing them all back to GPRS again when I leave my home/office! What is the point of having the great idea of using 'Destinations' if some applications don't use them?
My Blackberry Pearl 9100 sometimes encounters a problem when try to connect internet over WiFi. The Data services was switched on and APN settings were unchecked. It shows the complete signal strength of my WiFi signal but unable to browse. It hits an error message 'Unable to fconnect to the server'. The google talk app works when BIS was connected. But, over WiFI it doesnt work.
I see the Wifi Signal Strength icon on the top bar, but where's the label that shows the signal strength percentage? Is there a way to re-enable the label or did Canonical deemed it to be unnecessary?
I am initiating the design of an application that would require an Android phone to connect to another Android phone via Ad-Hoc networking with or w/o security. I would like to know if Android supports ad-hoc networking. I would also like to know what is the average range of the wifi signal from an Android handset point-to-point with no obstructions. I cannot find any information about this on the web.
I am searching for a app that will automatically switch my WiFi signal from one signal that is weak or getting weak to another signal that is stronger. Example I am at work and I will be connected to a hot spot on one side of the building, I go over to the other side of the building and the signal strength is weak and there is a new hot spot next to me that is extremely strong but the phone stays connected to the weak signal until I go and switch it manually to the new hot spot.
I have a cable modem at home setup with a Linksys router that has wifi enabled on it.� It is setup on the main floor of my house, for the sake of this example say the network name is currently set as Nathan.� � My wife uses wifi on a laptop on the main floor.� The problem is on the second floor in my bedroom, the signal drops in and out and I like to use my ipad there. � To solve the problem I've run a network cable to the bedroom and bought this dlink access point: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001P817YO/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00� My plan was to set this access point with the same wifi network name as the main router on the main floor (Nathan) with the hope that the iPad will automatically move to the device with the strongest signal so when I'm upstairs it would be on the upstairs access point and when downstairs the downstairs one.� Will this work?� I have the original iPad� Or is there a better way to solve this? Oh, I should add that I've tried wifi boosters and different antennas, none of them worked, my house must be made out of lead or something, so I decided the only way to know I can solve it is with an access point in the same room.�
So I synced my IPad to my Itunes, I entered my wireless WIFI information, the signal strength shows up at max strength, but the IPAD says no internet connection is found, and webpages nor the App store will load, what am I doing wrong?

HP Pavilion 15-n097sa Windows 8.1 64 bit I have had this laptop for a few months now but have never really had to use WiFi - now I need WiFi I find the laptop will not connect to my router, it also displays no WiFi networks. I have opened Device Manager/Network Adapters and the wireless adapter is apparently up to date and working correctly. The adapter is a Realtek RTL8188EE 802.11b/g/n Wi Fi Adapter. The laptop is just a few paces away from the router so should easily receive the signal, my Android shows the router signal strength at 100% with a speed of 150Mbps. Why the laptop will not connect to WiFi ....
I'm writing an android application that collects cell signal strengths. I am having trouble getting the "current" cell signal strength, but I don't have any problem getting the "neighboring" cell signal strengths. To get the current cell signal strength, I created a PhoneStateListener and implemented the onSignalStrengthChanged callback. It works, but not very well. It seems like the signal strength hardly ever changes, and resolution jumps to only a few numbers. I would accept the answer that the resolution of the signal strength hardware is coarse, but when I use the TelephonyManager's getNeighboringCellInfo() method, it works much better. The signal strength readings from neighboring cells change frequently, and they have much better resolution.So, how can I get the current cell signal strength in the same way that I am getting the neighboring cell strengths? It seems odd to me that the functionality of the neighboring cells is better than the current cell. Am I missing something here?I would also like to directly call a method from the telephony manager to get current cell strength, as opposed to a listener, if possible. If anyone knows how, please let me know.
I have two WiFi access points in my house, due to thick walls. When I turn on my phone it searches and connects to the first access point it finds, which is not necessarily the one with the strongest signal. e.g. I have one access point on channel 10 (lounge) and another on channel 1 (bedroom). When I'm in the lounge it always connects to the A/P in the bedroom, unless I actively "forget" that network, even though the signal strength of the one in the bedroom is VERY weak. Is there a way to force it to pick the strongest A/P?
I need to test a few Motorola Razor v3xx phones for signal strength. Reading the bars will not be good enough.My BlackBerry Curve has a "Status" menu that shows current signal strength in dBm ("Signal: -85 dBm").I cannot find how to access a similar menu or similar data on my v3xx. Anyone familiar with a feature like this on the v3xx?
The typical method to obtain signal strength has been to extend the PhoneStateListener class and override the onSignalStrengthsChanged method. Anytime the signal strength changes the system will call this method passing in the new ASU. Since this method is now deprecated as of Android 2.0, how are we suppose to go about obtaining the signal strength? I tried using the method above on Droid (CDMA) and the ASU passed in is always -1. There are also no details in the SDK as to why this was removed or what we are supposed to do now. http://developer.android.com/reference/android/telephony/PhoneStateLi...
Is there any way to retrieve the current cellular Signal Strength (RSSI) on Android 1.5? I know there's a way to listen for signal strength updates through the TelephonyManager, but this seems to only give a "state," not a numeric value. Is using the RSSI field on a neighboring cell fairly accurate? I'm guessing not, but I'm running out of ideas.
On my Wifi like many, I tend to get varying signal strength. I wonder if the black bar would possibly imrpove Wifi signal reception along with the 3G?
I am virtually unable to get a wifi signal in my house on my droid x unless I am a few feet away from my router. None of my other wifi devices in my house are having this issue. When I check my wireless settings on my dx it says the signal strength is poor. I'm running rooted GB 4.5.602. Does the baseband have to do anything with this (BP_C_01.09.13P)?
I have just got hold of a Tattoo on the Vodafone network and i am finding that at times the signal strength is very poor. I am finding that in places i used my previous phone and had a good signal that the signal is dropping out or there is no signal at all. This is very frustrating as whats the point in having a decent phone and not being able to use it? Normally the Vodafone network signal is very good.
I have to create an app that allows other devices to connect to my android terminal via wifi, without access point, so my device should become an access point to host their connections. i don't have to share the internet connection with them, just have to make them connect directly to me, then they send a UDP packet, and I have to read it, so on my device will have to be an UDP server after the connection creation. how to manage wifi? any step to follow? my android version is 4.0.3
I have a Studio 15 with Dell Wireless 1510N Mini-card. I noticed that the signal strength of this card is quite bad. I have another Studio with a Intel Wi-Fi Link 5100 and the signal strength is very good. I did some testing by putting two laptops on the same spot. The Intel card has a signal strength of 94% while the Dell card has only 60%. Is it because the Dell card is faulty or something?
I have a Dell Precision M4400 with the 1510 wireless card. I have a question regarding my wifi card. My school's wifi only shows up as one access point in the connection manager, but if I scan for wireless signals it shows several channels. The problem I am having is it seems quite random, depending on the signal strength I am guessing, my laptop connects to one of the B channels instead of the G ones. If I go to the Driver Properties in the Device Manager, I can force it to choose A first, but not G instead B. Does anyone know a workaround to make it choose G first instead of B/G? Also, I hate installing any Dell software that is not necessary, specially the Dell Wifi connection software since it's 300+ MB install, but does anyone who does use it know if it would allow me to specify G over B?
First I want to acheive battery status and signal strength instantly. For Battery Status, we can use SystemProperties.get ("status.battery.level_raw") to get current battery level. This class is not in SDK reference, but we can see this function is used in BatteryService and other fields. I use it successfully But for Signal Strength, I only find the way to use onSignalStrengthChange(int asu) which only gives us an "asu", new version seems to support onSignalStrengthsChange(....). But now, is there better ways for exact signal strength?
I have noticed that my iPad 3 shows weak signal strength as compared to ipad 2. In other words, iPad 2 shows much better signal strength in same area in which iPad 3 shows weak signal strength.What is problem with my iPad and how to solve this issue?
im using a 32 gigs iPhone 5s.and im coming across quit a few network issues.my service provider is the best in the market(air tel).when my phone showing full signal strength it does not activate 3g data.and when ever i on my data all the signal strength will disappear and show no service,till that i used to have full signal strength. Info: iPhone 5s, iOS 7.1.2
my wireless router is upstairs. my iPad has trouble with a weak signal downstairs (my PS3 is fine, but has a much bigger box for receiver/ antenna, i guess) 1. what is an easy/ economical/ effective way to extend/ improve my current home network wireless range/ signal? 2. what is a good iPad app for quantitatively measuring/ reporting WiFi signal strength, throughput, etc.? Information: Mac OS X (10.4.2)
I am using WiFi tether on my myTouch 3g. Randomly my computer will just disconnect from the WiFi even with 99% signal strength. It doesn't do this with any other WiFi connections just the one from my phone. About the phone, its the original myTouch 3g, running Cyanogen 5.0.7-DS-test5. I tried to do some searching online about this problem but couldn't find any thing for recent versions of WiFi Tether.
I am developing an application on the android platform. The app performs continues WiFi scan and sends information about the list of visible access points to server. However, I need to remove all the Ad Hoc points. The android.net.wifi.ScanResult api does not seem to have any information on "mode" of the network. Is there anyway I can distinguish a given point is Ad Hoc or Master?
When i connect to the internet, ovi store, google maps.anything that requires a connect on my nokia 5800 using my wi-fi it only stays connected for about 30-60 seconds then it says connection lost, it makes using wifi at home just impossible. There is nothing wrong with my internet as i conect to my modem with my ps3, psp and laptop and never ever lose signal. The signal strength on the nokia 5800 is over 80% and am never more then 10 feet away from modem but still constanly loses signal.
My iPad seems to have trouble maintaining a strong connection to my Cisco Valet M10 wifi. I'll be standing right next to it and only receive 1 bar of signal strength on my iPad. I have restarted all devices multiple times but the best that happens is the ipad shows full signal strength for a stort time before reducing to a single bar. I have seen the "official" suggestion by apple (narrowing the band to one type: N, make sure the firmware is up to date, etc). None of that seems to be an issue. My assumption is its my assumption that it is a specific issue between my iPad and M10 comes from: - All other wireless devices connected to my M10 pick up full signal and connectivity - My iPad picks up a full strength signal/fast connection from many other hotspots
I want to write an application that it can record we have been accessed wifi hotspot's location, and display in map. But I have a problem that how do I get wifi hotspot's location. And I think it can use wifi signal to get wifi hotspot's location, but it can may not accuracy at once time. And if it have no solution, I could may do that record own location gps when access wifi hotspot at the first time.
I upgraded to the second 2.1 leak for the eris and my usually always shows that I have one or two bars of signal strength but when I go to about phone it shows that i have -89db signal strength, is that good and is there just something wong with the bar signal indicator or is that a bad signal and if so how can I increase my signal? I already tried using the *228 number thing to update my prl but that didn't help. Before the leak i would have three or for bars
I have extended my wifi network and have a main router and second access point. They have the same ssid and wPA key so the clients connection can roam seamlessly. I want my mobile devices to pick up on the strongest access point and lock its connection onto that.The objective is to connect to the strong access point upstairs when I am present up there. My android phone and laptop lock onto this access point no problem and there are utilities / apps on each device to confirm this showing the AP mac addresses, etc. Also, if needed, I can use a client app to manually switch the connected AP easily. However, my ipad2 seems to hang on to the downstairs AP with the weak signal and I have no way of telling or confirming this as I can't find any tools to show the connected AP, let alone have any control over the connected AP. iOS 5. Ipad2. 64gb. Wifi. 3G
I currently have a Droid Eris phone - but I'm thinking of switching carriers and won't be able to use the Eris on the new carrier. What I'm wondering is - could the Eris still be used with WiFi only, without any cell service?For example - with no cell service and only access to WiFi access points - could I... - access gmail or surf the web - access the Android Marketplace for new apps or updates Basically I'm wondering if the Eris could be used by my son as a sort of Android based iPod Touch.
I've managed to replace my signal strength bars by a negative number. However, I don't know how to get back to the signal strength bars. After reading an article, "Bugs & Fixes: iPhone 3GS signal strength oddities" in MacWorld I went into Field Test mode on my iPhone. Here is what I did: WARNING: Once you replace your signal strength bars you may not be able to get them back. The "more accurate numerical indicator" is much more accurate but not quite as easy to see. You've been warned. Quoting from the article by Ted Landau of Macworld: "Finally, at least for AT&T phones, you can get a more accurate numerical indicator of the iPhone�s current signal strength by manually dialing *3001#12345#* followed by a tap of the Call button." I did this from an original 8G iPhone. However when I got my new 3GS 32G iPhone and restored from my Mac the new "more accurate numerical indicator" feature loaded along with my data.
I currently have the following network configuration:- Broadband Cable Modem (in my den) - Router (in my den) - Computer (in my den) - Wireless Access Point (family room)My broadband cable modem is connected to my router via ethernet cable. I also have an Ethernet cable running from the back of my router directly into my PC. My current setup is in my den (I will explain). In my family room (which is away from the den) I have my television and several other wireless devices (Roku box, etc). My signal strength is low in my family room due to many walls between my den and family room. I therefore installed a Wireless Access Point in my family room by running an Ethernet cable into my basement and connecting the router in the den to the Wireless Access Point in my family room. Now here is my question: I set the SSID (or network name) of the Access Point so that it is the same as my current network name (that way I see the AP on the network). Now here is where I need to understand how a wireless Access Point works. If I have a laptop or other wireless device in my family room and search for a wireless signal, am I connecting to my router (that has a weaker wireless signal than the AP) or to my Access Point (stronger because my Access Point is a foot away from my wireless devices) since they both have the same network name? And if I connect at that strong signal and walk into another room where the signal is weaker, does my laptop automatically connect to the wireless router? How do I tell if both my router an wireless Access Point are using the same SSID or network name. I guess what I'm trying to ask is where am I getting my wireless signal from, the Access Point or the Router or both (assume I am in wireless mode).
I want to reach out to others here before I take my Moment back to Best Buy to exchange it for another Moment. My signal strength fluctuates wildly just sitting in the same spot. With the Hero I got a constant 5 of 6 bars, but the Moment will vary between 0 and 5 of 6 bars. But it's more complicated than that. It seems that whenever the EVDO data kicks in, it causes the signal strength to drop to 0 or 1 bar. Once the data is idle, the EVDO indicator turns grey and then changes from EV(^v) to EV(D). At that point the single strength will return to 3 or 4 bars. At times, though not as consistently or often, the EVDO connection will fall back to 1xRTT and will switch between them every few minutes. This will occur even when the signal strength bars are in the 3 to 4 range. So, the my questions are... Does the signal strength apply to the data signal or just the voice signal? Is there any legitimate reason for the signal strength to vary wildly like I've described, even when sitting in the same recliner where the Hero had a constant 5 bar connection and data service that never wavered? Is anyone else having signal strength and/or data service issues? Should I exchange the Moment for another Moment or will I likely experience the same issue?
So at first I thought that the Razr had a weak WiFi reception. So I decided to install a WiFi access point in my office, basically on my desk. I connected the Razr to it but yet, it still occasionally shows a low signal or drops the connection completely then reconnects, works for a bit then drops it again. I'm at a point where I had to turn WiFi off on my phone because it was draining my battery so fast from flipping between the Cellular network and WiFi network way to often. I also have a Glaxy Tab 7.0 Plus connected to the same access point and it never drops a connection and it shows 100% strong on the signal.
I recently connected my iPad to a wifi network with weak signal strength. Now my emails get stuck in my outbox instead of being sent. I can turn off wifi and use 3g, but then I have to remember to turn it back on when I leave. How do I stop the iPad from auto-connecting to the faulty wifi?
Can someone do a comparison of WiFi signal strengths between a Wifi-only and 3G-enabled iPad? Does the plastic 3G window help with the WiFi reception?
Is it generally possible to have Wifi Tethering turned on (creating a Hotspot) and at the same time scanning for Wifi devices? I want several devices just discover (NOT connect) each other and log the signal strength. To do that all devices must be discoverable over Wifi and at the same time discover others. I would just need that for some specific use case..
If Wifi drops or I turn it off, the remaining icons go white, and then if you go to settings, about phone, status, the phone states UMTS and then switches to HSPA, and it states on network "Connecting, or Disconnected" A power Cycle will sometimes help. If I turn wifi back on, I have a Blue wifi, white H+, and a Blue Network Signal strength.
