Checking router and Wi-Fi settings
First, check your router and settings. While this is rare, it can also be a connection problem. You can restart the router and your phone to see if the problem persists or not. You can also try to connect your device to another Wi-Fi network with your phone. If you have no problem, the problem may be with the settings of the previous router.
You can delete the Wi-Fi network settings and restore them:
- First, access the list of all applications.
- Go to Settings and look for Network and Internet – Wi-Fi.
- Find your network there
- Click on "Forget the network".
- Restart your device
- Select 'Network & Internet' and go to 'Wi-Fi'.
- Turn on 'Wi-Fi'.
- Search for the available network and establish the connection.
Sometimes we can connect to the network but there is still no internet service.
You can try this:
- You can unplug the modem.
- Wait a few seconds (30 sec or more).
- Again, plug in the modem by connecting the AC adapter.
- Let the modem start completely. This can take a maximum of 5 minutes.
- Then try again to use the Wi-Fi.
Check the telephone network
- First, go to the Settings option.
- Then go to System> Advanced '.
- Look for the "Reset" options and click on it. There should be a reset option for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and mobile.
- After clicking on the Reset option, use a PIN, a template or a password.
- Then continue the task by selecting Reset settings.
Safe mode – check if Wi-Fi is working
Sometimes, after downloading or installing a new app, the connection problem between the Wi-Fi network and the phone may arise. Thus, if the phone starts in safe mode, only the pre-installed applications will be run. So if the Wi-Fi connection shows no problem, it means that a recently downloaded application creates a problem. So, look for the recently installed application and uninstall it.
- First, press and hold the power button.
- After that, hold down the dye button.
- You can see Safe Mode on the screen (at the bottom of it)
It is not enough to start the phone in safe mode. You should monitor the application that may be causing the problem and it is best to check for the latest version installed. Once you have uninstalled the problematic application, restart the phone in normal mode.
Go through a factory reset
The final step in troubleshooting is to perform a factory reset. But before you do that, be sure to back up all of your files and data. This is because the factory reset deletes all files stored on the phone (those stored on the SD card will not be deleted). It also defines the default phone settings.
- Hold the power button to turn off the device.
- Then hold the power button and the volume down button again for a few seconds.
- After a few seconds, Quick Start Mode appears on the screen.
- Release the two buttons.
- You will get a recovery mode option. Select it.
- An image with Android Robot will appear.
- Then press the power button and the volume up button. Hold it.
- You will get an option 'Erase data / factory reset'. Select it.
- Click on 'Yes'.
- Then complete the action by clicking Restart the system now.
