    Does anyone know what DCM Provider does?

    My Note for with Lollipop is suffering badly from battery drain (19%) recent charge from this app.

    I have tried restarting the phone to no avail.

    Not sure what exactly it is, but I found a youtube video that had me go to my settings.

    Settings - Apps - All - DCMprovider - Force Close then Clear Data

    Then it should work for you!

    It's hard to find anything about it, but from what I can gather, it has to do with wi-fi. I found this little nugget in a firmware FAQ from Actiontec, which makes Screenbeam, a wireless display:

    (Q) What is DCM?
    (A) DCM stands for Different Channel Mode. DCM is a function of the wireless network adapter and its driver. It enables the system's wireless adapter to simultaneously operate multiple connections on different wireless channels, and supports applications such as Wi-Fi infrastructure and Wi-Fi Direct.

    However, this doesn't mean that I know for sure why DCM Provider is causing problems. I'd suggest a cache partition wipe to start with, which won't erase any personal data: https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-28932
