Wi-Fi Fixes For Google Nexus

For users who need to deal with a cumbersome Wi-Fi connection, resetting the network often works. Users can make the necessary changes in the Settings panel by performing "Backup & Reset." This will wipe out the network settings and users need to input the details again.

Another hack that works is to keep the Wi-Fi on even when the device is on sleep mode. This process can be done automatically by choosing "Keep Wi-Fi During Sleep" from the "Wi-Fi" option in the Settings menu. Users need to reboot the device to see if the device can automatically establish a Wi-Fi connection.

There is no denying that Android Nougat has major flaws. Fortunately, software updates continue to improve the Android OS for Google Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X.
