Sony Xperia SP is a smart phone launched by Sony mobile company in 2013. Though it is a very nice phone but one of the most common problems faced by its users is that when you try to connect Wi-Fi with this phone it gets disconnected.

Not every user is facing this issue but there are many customers who have reported this error. Here are some useful steps that can be followed in order to solve this Wi-Fi problem.

Sometimes the smart phone is not able to scan the network automatically

There are many times when the smart phone is not able to scan the Wi-Fi network automatically. This normally happens if the network with which you are trying to connect is an Ad-hoc network and most of the Android based smart phones are not configured to work with these Ad-Hoc networks.

The second reason is that the Wi-Fi with which you are trying to connect is hidden in nature. All these problems can be easily solved. You need to find a suitable fix patch for this problem over the internet and get it installed on your smart phone. But always make sure that the important data and wpa_supplicant file is backed up properly.

The second problem that is hidden network problem can be easily solved by searching for Wi-Fi networks manually. When you are going to connect with this newly found network you will be prompted for a username and password. Enter the correct information and you will get connected with that Wi-Fi network.

This is also one of the most common problems faced by Sony Xperia SP users and that is related to frequent Wi-Fi disconnection problem. In order to solve this issue you need to tap the option called as Keep Wi-Fi ON during sleep mode. This will definitely rectify this frequent disconnection problem and you will be able to use internet in a smooth and easy manner.

Check with the router and DNS settings

Sometimes there is a problem with the router and you need to make sure that you check its settings. Router’s settings can be easily checked through its instructions manual. There are normally three types of issues that are faced with the router. The first one is router’s inability to transmit signals, the second one is the IP address being punched incorrectly and the third one is the issue due to wrong DNS settings.

All these three issues can be solved by consulting the router’s user manual and if you are not able to understand these settings then you can call on the router company’s customer care and get the settings done. There are complete chances that the problem will be solved.

Hence after reading all of the above mentioned points you can very well judge that Wi-Fi issues with Sony Xperia SP can be easily solved. All you need is little concentration and careful consideration of few important points.

As Sony Xperia Z is already in demand in the market but there are some people who cannot afford it and for those people, Sony has introduced the Sony Xperia SP with a budget slightly narrow as compared to the Sony Xperia Z.Analyzing the phone physically, we can say that this phone is good in looks. You may find this as little on the chunky side but the metal edging of the phone gives it a different look. They have also provided the pulsating notification light on the bottom. Some people don’t find it comfortable but for me, this is the best way to get notified of your messages and calls. Some phones vibrates as the notification for this but that is disturbing, if you actually see.

Sony Xperia SP

This phone has got the silver edging and clear plastic strip which is there at the bottom and at the back, it has got a white plastic panel. Front side of the phone is white bezel and there is subtle Sony branding which makes the phone look smarter. When you remove the back plastic panel then this may look cheaper to you but when it is attached, it makes the phone more attractive. There is the clear perspex bar on the bottom of the phone and you can set the customizable color for every notification that you want and it will notify you accordingly. This phone is 130mm long, 67mm wide and is 10mm thick which makes it 155g in weight. This in a heavy phone and if you are looking for a light weight phone this is not the choice for you.
