I have a Nokia E73 and up until 3 days ago everything worked fine. Now, when I use my Wifi calling the person on the other side of the call cuts in and out. All my other devices connected to Wifi work fine. I have restored my phone to factory settings twice and restarted my router and modem twice. When I take off Wifi calling I can hear them just fine. The problem is I get very poor reception in my home if not on Wifi.
If anyone has an idea how to fix this please let me know.
Have you tried using wifi calling on a different wifi network?
I haven't been able to. But I'll try the next time I'm on a different network.
Great this way we can make sure the problem isn't the network
Finally tried two other Wifi networks and my phone works perfectly on those. It must be mine. I just don't know how to go about fixing it. Like I said it worked great until about a month ago.
Does anyone use Connectify.me? It turns any Windows 7 PC into a hotspot. But for some reason while other pcs and even my T-Mobile Galaxy S 4G has no problem connecting to it and downloading emails, apps, browse etc. the WiFi calling will not register. I can go to the same Wifi that Connectify is connected to and it works fine.
Most likely because the PC hotspot is not issuing an IP address to your phone which can be routed from the Internet. As a result, the wifi calling server on TM's network cannot recognize your phone.
Thanks. I would accept that except I get the same Hotspot to allow me to browse the web, connect to my server based email etc. And of couse I can make and receieve calls just not WiFi calls.
I mean the same hotspot allows me to do all those other WiFi actions from my T-Mobile Galaxy S 4G,
What version of Connectify.me are you using: Lite or Pro? The pro version adds a repeater function which extends your home router network, and that should work.
The lite version is operating a different DHCP server from your router and it is using a different IP range than the one defined from you home router. In my case, the base DHCP address assigned from my home router is xxx.xxx.0.10, while Connectify.me assigns from xxx.xxx.210.1.
While there is some bridging obviously required to allow the other services to work, I think there will be some other issues (perhaps port related), which prevent the TM server from recognizing your device as a legitimate wifi calling client.
Other than extending your WLAN range, I'm curious why you would use this rather than simply connecting directly to your wifi access point?
First off thanks so much for trying to help.
I'm using the lite version and this happens even when I am just next to PC and I can get full signal on the phone showing the WiFi strength.
The reason? I travel extensively and I have a laptop, an iPad etc and when you pay for internet in a hotel for example it only lets 1 MAC address be used for each paid user. I had previously traveled with a small router which I gave up bringing and then had this problem.
Thanks again and sorry this got posted to Nokia and not Samsung
That's a good idea, I don't travel so much for business these days, so hadn't thought of that use. Maybe it would be worth the $29 for the pro version, but i can't guarantee any greater success... though on paper it looks viable using the repeater functionality.
Unfortunately i am running a custom ROM and have a problem reloading the wifi calling app, so I've not been able to see if there is a way to get it working with connectify.me lite.
Connectify support now says it is not supported. That's too bad.
Is that even with the Pro version?
Right now that feature is not supported. However, I will put this on the list of items for consideration into upcoming releases.
