    Default Why does GNex keep losing wifi connection?!?!

    When I am connected to wifi, it disconnects when the phone sits idle for a while. It does it at home as well as work (wireless-G at home, N at work...different setups on routers at both places...)

    Does anyone know why this happens, and how to fix it? IT"S PISSING ME OFF!!!

    Mine doesn't do that.

    Maybe it's an app messing with you?????

    Yeah it's been doing it for a while and I'd hate to have to delete all 75+ apps and reinstall them back 1 at a time to see if that's the problem, and then which app is causing it. But i might have to....

    I don't know if you are rooted or not but there is an app called SwitchMe that you could try. It let's you have multiple users on one phone. You could create a profile and use it to test your phone without a certain app without actually having to uninstall them all.

    Does it disconnect after the screen turns off?

    Not rooted....

    will have to look into that app, but I've got so many apps it could take forever to try them one at a time...
