    I don't know if I'm in the right forum to ask this, but for some reason all the images on Instagram won't load at all over my wifi connection. On the carrier data, they loaded just fine. I've tried uninstalling the app, clearing the cache. Nothing seems to work. Do you guys have any suggestions?

    Just did it. Now it's working. I feel dumb for not doing that in the first place. Thank you!

    I am having this problem as well. The image attempts to load but fails. I have reinstalled instagram and tried from different locations using wifi and 4G.

    I figured out why mine wasn't loading correctly. The mobile data was still on so I turned it off and once I did that it worked perfectly.

    I had this same problem on my Galaxy S5. For me, it turned out to be the SIM card. I wasn't using the card that came with the phone when I ordered it, because I couldn't get it to work. I didn't realize that you had to call and activate it. So, I stuck the card from my old phone into my new phone, since it looked the same to me. But, it turned out that the technology in the newer card is much more updated. So, after activating the newer card, the phone works fine now. Hope that helps! Even if you are using the card that came with the phone, it could be that you have a problem with it. Good luck!

    Yep, I had the same problem and tried doing this. Worked like a charm so far. Re installing photo grid now to see if that is without issue as well.

    Thank you, you just helped with weeks of headscratching and turning on/off wifi just to upload to IG.

    edit: photogrid used for instagram still is doing the same thing. i just dont get it. help.

    SOLUTION for me:

    Change phone IP config from DHCP to Reserved
    -log into router config from browser (192.168.0.1)
    -View Connected Devices
    -Find your phone and click Edit
    -Change Configuration to Reserved

    Struggled with this problem for months.
    -Phones with issue: S5, Note4, and 5X
    -ISP: Time Warner
    -Router/Modem: Time Warner provided

    It's really annoying to have that problem. It's probably because of an IP conflict or something. I'm not sure. I was able to FIX it by doing this:

    - Install a VPN/proxy management application like Hotspot Shield.
    - Let that app to assign a new IP to your device. (In Hotspot Shield, Turn Protection ON)
    - Enjoy !
    - Instagram will still load Images and Videos even when the VPN/proxy management app is closed, that is, the IP is reverted.
    P.S.: I don't know much about IP, VPN, Proxy, etc. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Hi, i've been having this same issue for a long time and finally found a fix.

    If you have access to the router you're connected over on Wifi, change its DNS to Google DNS (8.8.8.8 & 8.8.4.4) instead of ISP's. Make sure you change it on the router, not just on the phone.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers!

    This fix worked for me..thank you. I've been chasing the problem for two days now. Sposting phone and tablet (same account) extremely slow but only on home wifi. My regular phone was just fine and the Sposting devices worked fine everywhere else other than home. I was about to try running them through my VPN and if that didn't work then wipe them. This 2 minute fix saved me a lot of time. Thanks again , If you're a drinker I owe you a beer or bourbon haha or rye . Alright gotta go..there's ****posting to do
