Hi kennarionwong,

Thanks for your post.

Sometimes the signal indicator on mobile devices can fluciatate even though I can be right next to the router, it happens on my device but my internet speed remains unaffected as in the closer I am to the router the better the speed.

Is you internet speed and browsing slow? or are you getting good speeds but just the indicator on the phone shows a weak signal?

Regards

hi mr. moderator

 

the connection of my phone is intermittent and sometimes i cannot detect the SSID of the router even the router is near me? do you think the router has the problem? how come other devices can detect and connect to the router properly?

It is classic Nokia problem since the date of introduction of wifi in Nokia phone. This is one of problem tt let Nokia down. Why did Nokia people think about real improvement all these years?

I have the same problem. I did everything. Update and reinstall updated OS. Nothing worked. Tried many different wifi but satill week signal and disconnect automatically. It actually started after my n8 fell down. I think only solution is to replace wifi antenna. That's what I am goanna do. No other solution in my eyes. Its hardware problem not software glitch.

And I already order my wifi antenna from eBay and goanna replace it my self.

My N-8 Wifi has also been ruined at the nokia care. I wanted to replace the battery. The one they put  was  a bad one. It became very hot. Later i got the battery exchanged but wifi hardware doesn't detect any networks  now. I think i need to repair the motherboard.
