Gang, I was have the intermittent wi-fi issue on my Chuwi Hi12 and it was driving me bananas. Nothing I did would fix it, and I had resigned myself to resetting the wifi whenever I needed it to work. Then, this summer, I was traveling and noticed that one hotel's wifi was not dropping! Hmmm. Dug around some more and it turns out that being a security-minded fellow, I was using a security protocol that was too intensive for the poor Hi12. |
- On my main router I was running WPA2 Personal (PSK) + AES under Shibby Tomato.
- I daisychained a second router on a new subnet, and enabled WPA Personal (PSK) + TKIP
Result: no dropping! WPA + TKIP isn't as secure, but at least the Hi12 can handle it.
I will crosspost this to a couple threads as it does seem to be the solution. Sadly my version of Android on this device still won't keep wifi active in sleep mode, but at least now the connection is not dropping every 5 minutes.
