The new smartphones are equipped with many functions, you can use them for anything thanks to a thousand apps and a thousand accessories but, often, a very small problem can freeze you completely. Among the most common is certainly that of Wi-Fi connectivity.
If your phone also can't connect to Wi-Fi or, even worse, doesn't even detect networks, today we're going to show you a number of possible solutions that will help you troubleshoot Wi-Fi problems on your devices.
If the cell phone you are trying to connect to the network is an Apple device, here you will find the solution; if it is an Android device, scroll to the next paragraph.
One of the very first things to try is definitely to reset the network settings on your iPhone. So many times this easily solved the iPhone not connecting to Wi-Fi issue.
To proceed, all you have to do is go to Settings> General> Reset> Reset Network Settings
At this point you will be prompted for the password of your iPhone, enter it to proceed with the reset.
One of the causes for this problem may be an old firmware version. If you have not yet updated to the latest version of iOS, you should proceed to try to solve.
What you have to do is go to Settings> General> Update Software
Sometimes it is necessary to deactivate the wi-fi network in question and try to reconnect.
Click on Settings> Wi-Fi Network
Then go to the icon (i) for network details> Forget this Network
Now try to reconnect to the same network.
If you can't see the network or your Wi-Fi connection keeps dropping, try accessing your phone's notification area and search for the Wi-Fi icon Touch to turn it off, wait a few seconds and then turn it back on.
Wait a few seconds for the phone to search for available Wi-Fi connections and see if the problem is resolved. This simple trick can be effective regardless of the model of Android phone you own and is often the solution to many problems with your smartphone.
If you've tried restarting your network but it didn't do much good, maybe it could be a battery settings issue.
The power saving mode is designed to help the battery consume less energy and last longer, and the Wi-Fi network has a lot of weight, as we have already told you in our guide on why your mobile phone battery lasts so short. Since Wi-Fi is known to drain battery, for some devices, turning on power saving mode causes Wi-Fi to disconnect. So make sure that the power saving mode is turned off. You can access the power saving mode from the Settings menu of your Android phone.
Another trick to try to fix Wi-Fi problem when you can't connect to a network, is to reset. I recommend, before deleting all the networks, make sure you have the Password and the details to reconnect at hand.
At this point go to Settings> Connection> Wi-Fi
Tap the name of your network and then "Delete Network". Now reconnect.
As we said at the beginning, new smartphones have more and more functions and operating systems that are constantly updated. If your Android phone is not updated to the latest version, you may have problems with apps but also connecting to networks, due to a bug in the software.
To update go to Settings > About device > Check for updates or Download updates manually.
