Wifi Drop Trouble On Motorola Droid

I am trying to develop a streaming application and i am testing it on multiple devices. But i am seeing some problems on motorola droid with regards to wifi connection. The wifi connection drops occasionally and comes back in 30 seconds to 1 minute on the droid. Sometimes while in the middle of streaming i get network connection errors even though i am standing very next to the wifi router. I am not finding this problem with any other devices. Has anyone found any similar issues with the droid? Any idea what can be done in my program to fix this?

Drop Spots On Google Map In Droid App / What To Fix Them

I'm developing an android application where i want to pin out certain spots/addresses on a google map. I have managed to add point to a mapview using overlayitem and a drawable. That works great.

But i have installed an application where the pins/spots are added asynchronously, and it looks like they are dropped from the top of the screen on to the map. Looks really nice.

I think i can manage to code the async functionality using threads, but i have no idea how to implement the "falling" feature. Does anyone have a clue?

Motorola Droid X - Setting That Will Prevent Wifi From Turning Off Every Time Phone Sleeps

I asked this on the motorola forum as well and am hoping someone somewhere can help. Am i missing a setting that will prevent wifi from turning off every time the phone sleeps? The only setting i can find asks when to let it sleep and i have it set at never but every time i pick up the phone wifi has dropped the connection and it takes several minutes to reconnect. With my droid that never happened, once connected it stayed that way until i turned it off. 3g is terrible in my house so i miss stuff while wifi is "sleeping".

I only have a few days left to return this phone and these small, nagging issues keep turning up making me really consider returning it. I can't find another phone to replace it yet. I really wish i hadn't sold my droid. I hate to return to my razr until something good comes out.

How To Drop Appwidget To Home Screen

I checked out the "simplewikitionary", the demo project mentioned in the blog "http://android-developers. home-screen-widgets-and.html". I tried to start the application in the emulator. The application was installed successfully on the emulator, but i could not see the wiki- widget on the home screen. I added also some logging code in the "wordwidget::onupdate()", however, the code seems never to be called. Does the emulator delivered in sdk 1. 5 support the appwidgets framework? Or i did forget to do some configuration?

Advent Vega - Removing Drop Down Tabs On Left From Basic Screen

Just received my advent vega - am experienced windows user (since 3. 0) but new to android. Managed to get vega setup (mostly. ) But when i turn it on now i get the basic screen but with two drop down tabs on the left (top and bottom) that i can't get rid of. Each disappears when pressed but immediately reappears when touch removed. The screen will not accept any other inputs so what i have now is effectively a brick with a blue screen (but the clock works). Any info on how to get passed this impasse would be appreciated.

Random Reboots - Significant Battery Drop Within Seconds - Samsung Galaxy S2

In the past two months or so (i've had the phone for seven) the phone just randomly turns off (maybe 1-2 times per week) and when i reboot it, the battery has dropped sharply (from anywhere between 10 and 70%) within the space of minutes being off. It's legitimate battery loss as well - it takes the same time to recharge the battery back to where it was. Other than when that happens the battery performs well and i get quite good battery life. This happened before and after i got ics so that can be ruled out, and otherwise i think it makes more sense for the problem to be hardware related.

Usually the battery doesn't drop that significantly but today it dropped an insane amount, from about 85% to 20%. Any ideas what could be the problem/possible fix? I would post a screenshot but there are limitations on new users.

Wifi Error Message On Motorola Triumph

So i just got the motorola triumph 3 days ago, and i love everything about it except for one issue. I get intermittent ability to enable wifi. It works sometimes, but not others. Restarting the phone does not help one bit. I've installed clockworkmod recovery, and i've wiped both cache and dalvik, but to no avail (it still starts and stops when it wants to). One thing i noticed was that locking the screen seems to turn wifi off and switch to 3g.

As a side note, i have googled the crap out of this issue. I haven't been able to find anything on it, so i figure i can ask you all here for help. I can sudo (haven't dropped symlinks to make it "true root" yet), but if i need to tweak with the /system partition, i need the proper mount command (haven't found that either). A million thanks to anyone who can help! Right now i want to keep this as stock as possible while removing the bloatware and fixing the wifi if possible. Perhaps cm7 when every issue is squelched, but for now stock.

Edit: i forgot to mention that when i try to enable wifi, it sits there waiting for the radio itself to turn on, and then dropping to the message "error". Not issues connecting to a network (that's always worked just fine).

Got A Htc G1 And Just Want To Be Able To Use Wifi

When i turn the phone on it gives me the typical "welcome to t-mobile g1". Below it in small font, "touch the android to begin. " Well, i do that, i hit skip cause everything is common sense. But now it ask me to activate my gmail, i do but i don't technically have internet, i would love to use the wifi but, when i hit menu it tells me wireless options and it gives me the following:

Data roaming (that's a no, no for me. )
Use only 2g networks.
Network operators
Access point names.

Below each one, as in every time i click on network operators and access points it says something about t- mobile. You see i don't want to be using edge or anything like that i just want to be able to use my wifi, so any help?

Monitoring The Wifi On Device

I need suggestion on handling few wifi scenarios in my application. Suppose my application is running and device is kept idle for a while and it has gone into sleep mode. In the sleep mode the wifi is automatically turned off. Now again when the device is brought back from the sleep mode it takes some time to turn on the wifi state.

Now if during this time app background service is making http request, how we handle that scenario?


Suppose if wifi is not available, device is trying to connect to the gprs/3g and if during this period if user/background service is making the http request, how we handle it in the code?
