HTC U11 Keeps Disconnecting From Wi-Fi Network

Problem: I’m having a problem with connecting to my wifi at home.  I have rebooted the router and wiped cache from my phone .  Thing is, all of my other wifi devices work without a problem (smart TV, laptop).  My phone will connect to the internet for about a second, before it disconnects. It does not do this anywhere else.  I will connect, and stay connected, everywhere else (sister’s house, stores, work, etc). The thing that is confusing everyone is that my router works with all my other electronics and the phone connects everywhere else.  I’m not positive I have the Nougat version, but when I look in settings it says the version is 7.1.

Solution: The first thing that you will need to do in this case is to try forgetting the Wi-Fi network from the phone then connect to the network again. In most cases this will fix the problem.

  • Tap the Apps icon from the Home screen.
  • Tap Settings.
  • Tap Wi-Fi.
  • Then touch and hold the wireless network that you want to remove.
  • Tap Forget network.
  • Reboot your phone.
  • Go back to Apps-> Settings-> Wi-Fi menu.
  • Then tap the Wi-Fi switch to enable Wi-Fi, if necessary.
  • Tap the Menu icon.
  • Then select Scan from the given options.
  • Wait for your device to complete scanning for available Wi-Fi networks in range.
  • Select the wireless network that you want to connect to.
  • If prompted, enter the network password.
  • Then tap Connect.

In case this does not fix the problem then you should also try resetting the network settings of your phone.

  • Swipe up from the Home screen then tap Settings.
  • Tap Backup & reset.
  • Tap Network settings reset.
  • Tap Reset settings twice to confirm reset.
  • When the reset is complete, your device will restart. After the restart, enable Wi-Fi then set up your Wi-Fi network to connect to on the phone.

If the issue still persists then proceed with the additional troubleshooting steps listed below.

  • Check if the issue occurs in Safe Mode. If it doesn’t then there might be an app you downloaded that is causing the problem. Find out what app this is and uninstall it.
  • Backup your phone data then do a factory reset.

HTC U11 LTE Signal Keeps Dropping

Problem: Hello I have a unlocked HTC U11. I am using it on metro pcs and am having problems with my 4g lte. For some reason my 4g lte keeps dropping every 2 mins or less and showing a E with 2 white arrows. Sometimes 1 white arrow. Is there anyway you can help me with this. It’s very aggravating. I always have to restart my phone and even when the 4g lte is there it’s very slow

Solution: The first thing that you will need to do in this case is to make sure that your phone  s using the correct APN settings.
