My Nokia 8 is only 1 month old. I found the WiFi connection always breaks down. It has to be turned off and turn on again in order to make it work.
Hi, I also have this wifi issue using oreo 8.1 firmware, wifi frustratingly drops in and out with no obvious fix. Also find bluetooth very selective as to when it chooses to work and with what appliances. This phone could be great, but poor software optimisation is letting it down in a big way ( at least I'm hoping its software). Am i also the only one who thinks the music processing on this phone is of a low quality? Even with headphones I don't find the sound output to be very full. I also use a letv leeco elite 3 pro phone which cost a quarter of what this phone did, and I have to say I find it way more reliable and superior in many departments. Maybe Nokia would be good enough to reply to some of these issues. As unfortunately I for one will be looking for a refund if they are not resolved soon, as phone has too many serious niggles to make it useable day to day. Am I the only one who feels this strongly???
I have another issue... My Nokia 8 always after few weeks without any issue just cannot connect to any wifi and if it connects... the connection is extremely slow and it drops. Restart solves this.
I have found a solution for the wifi problem on my Nokia 8. First of all, the problem I had was that while browising internet pages or with any ecommerce app or internet radio streaming suddenly and silently the internet connection would simply stall and pages would not load anymore until I switched wifi off and back on or waited for some 20s or more and then reload the pages. This would repeat every ten minutes on average. Extremely annoying and pushing me almost to go and ask for a refund. Please note that in the very same environment and at the very same time a bunch of other devices would work with no issue at all: iPad mini 2, iPhone 6, Chromecast 2, Huawei P8 Lite 2017, Huawei P10 Lite, Xiaomi mi A1, three different Asus laptops from 2012, 2015 and 2017, and even the original Samsung chromebook from 2012.
Here I have a Fritzbox 3272 ADSL2 router which acts as my primary wifi access point then I have a switch and two additional access points by TP-Link, one in the basement and one in the upper level. All are 802.11b/g/n.
I changed the settings of the Fritzbox from 802.11b/g/n to 802.11b/g and now it works great, I can stream internet radio for one hour or more with no disconnection at all.
I have not changed the secondary TP-Link access points, they are still in 802.11b/g/n mode and when my Nokia 8 switches to them then I have the wifi stall problems.
So clearly it is related to 802.11n and there must be some software timer either in Oreo 8 or in the wifi chipset that every 10min or so tries to upgrade the link to 150Mbps but fails.
I can change all my home routers and disable "n" but what about when I am at work, at a public conference or anywhere else?
no, I can't. I can choose only as follows. No access to the guard interval.
I'm curious, did you try turn off Wi-Fi calling (if available)?
(Settings > Network & Internet > Mobile network > Advanced)
No, this option is not available
Thanks, I may have a different issue, for Telenor DK to sort out(?)
There's no connectivity issues when Wi-Fi calling is disabled on my Nokia 8.
For reference, the router at home is an old D-Link 635 (2.4GHz) mixed mode n/g/b with short GI enabled. The phone works reliably on this and two other stored Wi-Fi networks (unknown configuration).
