    Default WiFi Choking


    This is a general Android question I guess. I am using an LG G2 on ATT and running Android 4.2.2. However, I have noticed this problem before with other Android phones. It just seems worse now. When I am home or anywhere that I am connected to a WiFi network, I constantly see an "up" arrow in my WiFi connection status in the notification bar. I am assuming that things like my email program, etc. upload for push and other things. The problem is that my WiFi seems to be choking and when I go to use the mobile browser, it may take forever to get to a page because the mobile phone WiFi is choking up. It makes downloading things from the Play store difficult, downloading web pages and other things difficult. Is there a way to do something about this choking? BTW, I this is not a problem with the home network although I'm sure it could be better. From what I can tell this is happening based on resources/apps competing on the phone.

    Welcome to Android Central! Does this behavior persist even after a full reboot (i.e., powering the phone completely down, then powering up again)?

    Yes it does.

    And if I understand correctly, this happens no matter what wi-fi network you're connected to, whether it be at home or in public? If it's only at home, it's still worth rebooting your router, because a device can still have a poor connection despite good connections with other devices or computers in the household.

    Yes, it does happen at places other than home. I notice it there more because I do more stuff on WiFi there these days, but I have noticed it in other places.

    By chance do you have your photos set to always upload to the cloud when on wifi?

    How new is the phone? If it's pretty new, I'd ask AT&T about the problem and see if they can replace the phone, since I would wonder about some hardware problem. If they won't replace it, then it might be time to talk to LG. You could try a factory data reset first.

    It's pretty new. I'll follow your advice and talk to AT&T and LG.

    Patruns I think I may. I will change that.
