Wifi issues - suggested solution?

3 posts in this topic

Posted

Alot of you might have this problem.

If you are using a WiFi network with a DHCP server, the tab has issues with connecting to the network once its previously assigned IP is assigned to some other device. The tab keeps on waiting for just THAT specific IP to get free.

One obvious solution is to use static IP's. But I don't want to do that.

Second solution (?) is to factory reset the tab again and again whenever this problem occurs. (which really isn't a solution)

So I had an idea, why not manually release the IP address of the TAB. The only problem is, I don't know how to do it.

netcfg and ifconfig aren't much help from the terminal.

Anyone has any ideas?

Thanks.

You could either reserve an address for your Tab in the DHCP config on your router, or reduce the DHCP lease time so that your Tab doesn't try and use the same address.
