My new toy is an LG G2 32 Gb edition with a KitKat custom rom on it. It had some problems connecting with my home WiFi network powered by a Linksys WAG120N. It was saying “network saved, protected” but never making a connection. With another router (I have a bunch of them) was connecting quickly with no problem. With the main one…nada!
So, after some inquiring here and there on the net I found the solution. It looks like that KitKat needs to have connection on a stable single type of network – make it b,g or n type. It accepts only one type of network and not the mixed setting on your router.
Android Gingerbread had problems connecting to networks using WPA/WPA2 encryption protection. KitKat lookg like it has problems connecting to mixed networks. I saw that this problem is also on Galaxy Note 3.
Solution: go to your router’s administration page (normally you must type in an internet browser the gateway numbers 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.254) then go to Wireless settings page and where is written NETWORK MODE choose the “…only” mode not mixed.
Be advised that there are differences between b, g and n mode and the most important difference is that the “n mode” gives a wider range of WiFi signal and greater speed so if you’re using your router to stream movies and photos to your TV using DLNA or other streaming methods, the “n only” network is suitable for you.
If you don’t use any streaming and you are freaking out for security and privacy you can use the “b only” or “g only” mode using a WPA2 encrypted password.

I’m using this app on Android just to cheer up my days, to have fun and surprisingly to learn some facts that I don’t know about.
At a first glance might be childish but…you’ll have fun.
And even if you don’t have an android device you still get to have fun by logging on to http://www.Memedroid.com.
Go and have fun.
I must replace my already old and sluggish LG Optimus 3D with another phone.
While Windows is yet not widely used and sustainable I must go for another Android.
So my question is: from here till May, which phone I can get within 350 euros that has the specs in title: a quad core phone with 2Gb of RAM and not bigger than 4.7 inches.
Till now I’m considering LG Optimus G, Huawei Ascend P6, Oppo Find.These at least I can find them in Italy.
Thanks for your replies.
