Wifi not working on Stable Mod
Posted 17 April 2011 - 02:19 AM
Whatever is the real cause, the system appears as if the wifi was just turned off, or there literally are no networks (definitely neither of which is the case). Or simply that the wifi card can't be accessed.
I know the wifi works, because I tried an older bootable uSD card, and it works when I remove the uSD card and boot into Nook.
What I've tried:
- toggled the wifi on/off
- reinstalled RC4, didn't work, reinstalled Stable version
Without wifi, the tablet is next to useless.
Anybody got any ideas?

This implies that the driver is doing something to the wifi hardware.
I can't even ping the router from a terminal on the nook.
Even stranger, if I reboot my ROUTER it will start working again. For a while. Then it will stop. The obvious conclusion here is that it's a router issue. The problem is, no other devices (and the family has quite a few computers, phones, video games, etc) are having an issue connecting to my router. My nook didn't have this issue at all until I upgraded. It's very odd.

In trying to find a solution I went back to CyanogenMod-7.0.0-encore I cannot say if this will work for other versions as I have not tried it.
First you need to know the IP range your router assigns. This can be found in your router setup page, usually under DNS settings. Default ranges may be something like 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.1.100
You also need to know the address of your router, usually the IP you enter to get to the router settings.
1. Once you know the IP range your router assigns, on your nook goto SETTINGS - WIRELESS AND NETWORKS - WIFI SETTINGS
2. Tap the menu button and select ADVANCED
3. tick STATIC IP
4. Enter a IP address within the range your router assigns (use a higher one to avoid conflicts)
5. Enter the GATEWAY - use your routers IP address on your network
6. Enter NETMASK - usually 255.255.255.0
7. Enter DNS1 - use your routers IP address again.
That worked for me.
To use a hotspot other than your home router, you'll probably need to change these settings to untick static IP.

I know there is a lot of solutions but this is what solved it for me.
First off I used the tether on my phone to see if it had the same issue but lo and behold it worked fine. So I had a look at my router settings and did some messing around.
I was using WPA2-TKIP as my form of encryption and my password size was around 30 chars. I changed this to WPA2-AES with the same password and it worked perfect.
I also changed the my router to use G instead of B-G but I'm not sure if this was a problem.
I hope this works for some of you.

Edit: I rebooted my router and forgot all networks on my NC. It seems to be working for now. Also, I told WIFI to never sleep in the advanced wifi settings. Hopefully my problem goes away.

Also, I recovered to stock, and wifi works fine.
