Ways to fix Nexus 6 Wi-Fi issues


Solution No.1: Turn Wi-Fi off and back on

When users see this solution they usually think this won’t work because it’s too simple, or because they already tried that. Try again. Turn of Wi-Fi, wait for a couple of seconds and turn it back on. Some people did this three or four times, and all of a sudden they were able to establish the connection.


Solution No.2: Restart your Nexus 6

It may be a good idea to turn off your device and turn it back on. Sometimes your smartphone just need a little refreshment after which it starts to work normal. So, tap on the Power button and when the menu appears, click Restart. Try to connect to a Wi-Fi network again.


Solution No.3: Restart your router

Same as your smartphone needs a refreshment, sometimes  your router may need the same. Unplug it and leave it off for at least 30 seconds. Then, plug it back in and see if the Wi-Fi is working.


Solution No.4: Forget the network and add it again

The next thing you may try is also pretty simple. Go to Wi-Fi settings, find your network, tap and hold it and then tap Forget. Once you are done, create a new connection and hopefully everything will work just fine.


Solution No.6: Change the frequency

This may solve the problem for you. Go to Wi-Fi and tap on three dots to open the settings menu. Tap on Wi-Fi frequency band and you will see several options there, so change the current frequency to see if that will make any difference.


Solution No.7: Update the router firmware

If the router firmware is not up to date, that may be the reason why you are experiencing this problem. If you still have the manual that came with your router, see how you can update the firmware. The other option is to look for the router model and visit the manufacturers website to see if there is an update available.


Solution No.8: Make sure the software on your Nexus 6 is up to date

You know that keeping your device up to date is one of the most important things if you want to avoid the issues and get the most out of your smartphone. A new version brings enhancements and it also fixes the known bugs and glitches. Usually, some new features are introduced as well. To see if there is an update available, go to Settings > About phone > System updates and then tap Check for update. If there is no update available you will see a message saying “Your system is up to date”. If there is a new version, tap Install and follow the on-screen steps.
