Iphone XS - Random dropouts and invalid password for Wifi
My iphone XS seems to randomly drop the VM wifi signal about 3 or 4 times a day with a box saying "invalid password" on it. I then rekey in the (same) password and it's OK again ... until the next time it drops which is getting annoying.
Have done Forget network and then later Reset Network Settings in IOS but still the same problem. There are other users in the house with Iphone 8 and a Samsung S8 who do not experience this problem.
However I have never had this problem on the Wifi at work (BT) so don't think it is the phone.
Re: Iphone XS - Random dropouts and invalid password for Wifi
Try this first. Do a pinhole reset to factory settings. Push the pin in to its stop point and hold for a "timed" 40 seconds do NOT restart the router after that. See if that sorts it. If not do this. After the reset go into the Hub3 settings and in "smart wifi" disable the "channel optimisation" and rename the 2.4 & 5 GHz network ssid's (just change to xxxxx2 & xxxxx5) with a password you like, save settings and restart Hub. Over wifi you can then select the individual network that you want to connect your device to. Mi iPhones connect much better to the 5GHz one - you may lose seamless roaming - if thats a problem you can always do the pinhole reset again.
