Hi there, i can detect wifi networks on my phone and laptop but i don’t in vim on android.
It is very strange because when i just turned it on it got one or two spots and i had the sad idea of connecting my alfa adapter to the usb.
Since then it only gets my phone hotspot because it’s next to it.
Somebody got a clue?
After it i think i just will flash ubuntu to install the alfa wifi adapter or luckily it’s just plug and play.
Btw i just got my vim today, proud to be part of the community.
Thanks for the reply.
It seems ok, i can upload a pic soon but i think ther is no problem with it because it detects a very near one. It just can’t catch so good as my phone and my laptop built in adapters. Now i have a “bigger” problem cause i tryed to press the buttons at startup and now it’s black and doesn’t boot at all.
I’m a lame user but i hope someone got a clue. I’m willing to make a dual boot or multi with ubuntu but android was fine until now.
Because the Vim uses an IPEX type antenna connector, adding an external antenna is an easy project.
Also, when you get the Vim back on its feet, you can try this change and see if it helps.
From Android go to Settings/More Settings/About TV box and click Build number 4-5 times and it will enable Developer Options.
Back out to Settings/More Settings/ and click Developer Options. Scroll down to the Networking section. Turn on “Use legacy DHCP client”. See if that helps.
