As the title says, no FB over wifi. It works just fine over 3G. Computer on same network has no problem reaching FB. Rebooted phone and router. No recent changes to either. Anyone else?

The FB app for Android is just horrible. It has always been painfully slow. Just absolute junk.

So I figured out it's just my home wifi where Facebook no longer works. I recently updated my routers firmware. Anyone know what ports Facebook needs so I can open them up?

Just checked my FB app. It is working over wifi and 4G. not sure why your app is not working. have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app? Are you running an after market launcher? If so perhaps there it's a conflict.

conspiracy theory.. ?? lol

so... yea.. facebook is painfully slow at times... and ok at other times.. i have the maxx and my wife and sister got a rezound... they all work the same way.. so.. when we do try to go on facebook and when its slow.. we try to use desktop.. being that the case.. i was wondering is that something facebook actually wants?? facebook wants us to use the computer to go on it?

Its a fact and is presented as a risk .. that facebook users are depends more on smartphones to go on facebook.. and thats an area where facebok hasnt started making any revenue... since there is no ads..

So My theory is

Facebook app slow->frustrated(still addicted)-->computer access to facebook--> Ads->$$$$$$

Someone is smart @facebook.. lol



OR
Its is just slow

mine works fine. For the most part anyway. Every now and then ill have problems though. I blame the app. It has always been really bad, although they are getting very close to making it good!

And just like that it started working again today, even before the FB update.

I'm having the same issue with my RAZR MAXX. I have a combination of DLink 655 with DLink and Belkin access points. Never had and issue with my DX until I upgraded to the RM. I have no problem accessing the Facebook app with the 4G connection and no issue with any other site with the browser but if I try to access Facebook with the app or via m.facebook.com I get a timeout connection error lost connection. Very frustrating and no excuse.
I've tried changing channels with the APs and also change grom WPA only to WPA and WPA2 auto and still the same thing. If I check my DL speed with Speed Test, on WIFI I get consistently a pink of about 21ms, a DL spead of about 28,000 kbps and an upload speed of about 2100 kbps but no connection with FB app or even the FB mobile website. This is crazy.

Mine stopped working again. It's the Android FB app. It absolutely sucks. I have an Asus gaming router and have no problem getting all other data over Wifi, including Google+. No solution until FB UNF***S their app.

I can't even get to FB on my phone browser over WIFI anymore. That makes me think it's something on their server side. All other websites and apps work fine. I've started using Facebook less and Google+ more. Maybe if enough people get driven away from FB they will fix their crap?
