The Most Common Reasons For The Nexus 6P Wifi Problems Includes The Following:

Airplane Mode

This could be the probable reason for your smartphone witnessing WiFi issues as when the phone is in the airplane mode, the surrounding WiFi connection would not be visible on the mobile phone. Therefore, you must ensure that the airplane mode is not on when you wish to use the WiFi connection.


Error Message

If your phone displays the error message like “Authentication failed” while you were trying to connect to a particular WiFi network, there could be a problem with the password of the WiFi network you are trying to connect to. Any particular network would try to authenticate or validate the password entered by you for using the WiFi connection. If the password matches, then the connection gets established, otherwise, the error message “authentication failed” pops up. Hence, you must firstly check the password of the WiFi connection that you wish to use. Another trick that you can try is to manually turn off the WiFi and the mobile data of your Nexus 6P phone and then turning on the airplane mode. With the airplane mode still active, you should switch on the WiFi connection and then should try to connect to the network. You should then switch off the airplane mode.


Inability to Find the Network

There could be situations that the WiFi connections are not visible on the Nexus 6P. If your smartphone is not able to locate the WiFi connections, then you must ensure that the WiFi connection is working normally. If there are several connections on the WiFi already, the users can try disconnecting some of them and then connecting the Nexus 6P. Some wireless routers have certain limits on the usage of the WiFi connection, hence, it must be ensured that the limit is not exceeded.


Connected, But no Internet

This would not reflect the WiFi connectivity and would disable the Internet connection when the power is low on the smartphone. Hence, you must make the necessary connections.


The WiFi Timer
