While receiving the latest Android software update is always great news, sometimes it comes with some issues. Reports are pointing out that after installing Android 7.0 Nougat on Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P devices a few problems appear. The issues are centered on the Wi-Fi connection. The devices start randomly losing Wi-Fi connection and Wi-Fi networks.

These issues shouldn’t come as any surprise since there are a bunch of Nexus 5X and 6P users who have reported that this problem occurred while they were running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow as well. Nonetheless, today we’re going to present readers with a couple of solutions that can help them fix these annoying issues.

Reset Network

In case the device stops recognizing Wi-Fi networks, the best solution is always to reboot the network. This can be done by accessing the Settings panel and performing a “Backup & Reset”. After that, select to perform a “Network settings reset” and “Reset Settings” as well. This way all of the Nexus 5X or 6P’s network settings will be wiped clean, so they need to be set once again.

Wi-Fi Turned On

This might sound obvious, but this is the best method in order to keep a strong Wi-Fi network connection. What’s even better is that there’s a way of doing this buy enabling an option from the Settings panel. While in the Settings panel browse over to the “Wi-Fi” option and tap on the “gear” icon on the right corner. From the “gear” menu enable “Keep Wi-Fi during sleep” and tap on the pop-up that appears. All that’s left now is to reboot the Nexus device and check if its able to automatically establish a strong network connection.
