Although it is not very common, the truth is that some Huawei and Honor models have been reporting a number of problems related to the WiFi connection. It does not connect, it disconnects continuously or it does not detect any network. While the probability that the problem is related to mobile phone hardware is quite high, we can carry out a number of methods to fix the terminal's WiFi. Let's look at some of the most functional solutions to solve WiFi problems in Huawei, Honor and EMUI in general.
Forget the network if the problem comes from a single WiFi network
In case the problem occurred with a single WiFi network, the most effective solution to solve the possible errors with the network goes through remove it completely from the phone and add it again.
Simply press and hold the network in question and select immediately followed by the Forget network option. Then we will add it again to connect to the Internet.
Always choose the 2.4 GHz network
It is well known that 5 GHz WiFi networks are more limited in scope than 2.4 GHz networks. Although they are generally more stable, it is recommended to avoid future problems. always use the 2.4 GHz network.
If the network in question continues to generate some problem, we can jump between the 2.4 GHz network and the 5 GHz network to detect the error with greater precision.
Use a fixed IP address
The IP address is the identifier that our router assigns to all devices connected to the Internet. This assignment is done automatically. The solution to possible problems with WiFi goes through manually assign a fixed IP to the phone.
Within WiFi in Settings we will click on the network to which we are connected and then on Modify Network. In IP Settings we will select static IP: a set of fields will automatically be displayed that we will have to fill in. We leave you with the data to enter.
- IP Address: 192.168.1.X (where X goes any number between 1 and 255)
- Gateway: 192.168.1.1
- ID 1: 220.127.116.11
- ID 2: 18.104.22.168
When selecting the IP address we will have to make sure that no other device connected to the network makes use of the IP we choose. Thus, we will have to select the address is that they start from 10 or even 20 in the last set of numbers.
Reset the network settings if none of the above works
The last method we can use before resetting the phone completely is to reset the network settings. In Settings / System / Reset we can find the aforementioned option, as we can see in the screenshot below.
Once the settings have been restored we will have to add all the WiFi networks that we have previously saved.
Or format the phone as the last option
The last option we can use is neither more nor less than formatting the phone in order to eliminate any possible error within EMUI. Within the System Settings section we will go to Reset and finally on Reset phone.
We must bear in mind that this process will eliminate all the phone data, so we recommend making a backup on an external device previously to avoid losing sensitive data. After performing the reset we can check through the Settings application if there is a new update to help us solve WiFi problems.
