How I fixed the WiFi on my HTC Sensation 4G
23 September, 2012 § 19 Comments
For the past eight or so months I haven’t been able to use WiFi on my HTC Sensation 4G. Every time I try to turn on WiFi I get an error.
I’ve tried all sorts of things to fix this. I upgraded my phone from Gingerbread to Ice Cream Sandwich. I rooted my phone and installed the WiFix Manager app. I read through countless forum posts from other people suffering from the same issues. It seemed like nothing would fix this.
A couple weeks ago I found a work around that continues to work (mostly).
While traveling in Europe, I had my phone on airplane mode so I wouldn’t use my data plan overseas. This was the key for finding the workaround.
To get WiFi to work on my HTC Sensation 4G:
- Put the phone into airplane mode.
- Restart the phone.
- Turn on WiFi.
- Connect to the WiFi network.
- Turn off airplane mode.
Occasionally the WiFi will cut out and lose its signal. I can fix this by turning the WiFi off and then back on without going through airplane mode.
This now works pretty well, but there are intermittent kernel crashes from the poorly-written WiFi drivers.
I hope this helps others who are in a similar position as myself.
