Fix Regional Wi-Fi Problems On Android 4.0 ICS With WiFix [How To]


wifixApparently the Ice Cream Sandwich craze in the Android world has come with its own shares of small and minor issues. However, Wi-Fi connectivity, is not something minor and the lack of it can put a lot of eager ICS users in a spin. There are reports of people in certain countries having problems with Wi-Fi when they have their SIM cards inserted in their devices – not like that’s an option – and it doesn’t matter what make or model the device is. Luckily XDA-Developers forum member fardjad has recently released a solution that fixes this issue for a lot of people facing this issue.

So how do you fix it? Simple, the developer has compiled an app just for this purpose.

Once installed, the application will change the country code as and when needed by itself. Or you can also invoke it manually by dialing *#94349# and pressing the call button. You can easily check for updates and install them via WiFix Manager.

Please note that at times when you reboot your phone while Wi-Fi was enabled, you may come back to find that you have no internet access. Simply disable and re-enable Wi-Fi or manually invoke the app again.
