What do I do if Wi-Fi is not working or is disconnecting on my Pantech P9090 Discover?

When the Wi-Fi signal is not optimal, the device may periodically disconnect from the Wi-Fi access point. This is controlled by the Wi-Fi Signal Filter settings.

OS 4.X (Ice Cream Sandwich): Settings>Wi-Fi.  In the bottom right hand corner of the display, press “Menu” icon (3 small boxes) and select Advanced.  Select Wi-Fi Signal filter and choose “Poor” signal.

OS 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean): Settings>Wi-Fi.  In the bottom right hand corner of the display, press “Menu” icon (3 small boxes) and select Advanced.  Avoid poor connections should not be checked.

 

When you are not able to re-connect to a Wi-Fi hotspot, restart the connection process. Turn Wi-Fi OFF and then back ON to re-connect.

Go to Settings>Wi-Fi.  Press and hold on/off slider bar to off position. Then press and hold on/off slider bar to on position.
