Why my internet cut off randomly?

I use Redmi Note 8 Pro as a modem for my computer and when it worked, it is fast with average ping but very often, it got cut off i.e my wifi says NO INTERNET CONNECTION even if i use it as a modem via cable, its still cut off but on the phone itself it is not.

 

It is very annoying because i got cut off randomly in games.

 

Any idea what causing it?

Is there a reason you can't simply connect the computer to your home wifi network without the phone?

Try changing the channel

You are using a wireless connection, right?

OK. Make sure the power saving is turned off on the phone.

How strong is the LTE connection?

Try moving the phone closer to a window.

I have another question: What make/model is the phone? And how old is it?

My S7 Edge did the same thing: random dumps. It turns out that the battery is on the way out.

Not bad for a phone that was bought new in 2014.

It doesn't really fix it, signal is not the problem because even tho its full, it still cuts off randomly

You mentioned that you've tethered the connection via cable as well, yet still have connection issues?

There's not a whole lot you can do if you're limited to the data from your cell network.

 

Have a look on redflagdeals for internet packages on the cheap.

You can sometimes catch some great deals on there.

Not sure if the phone has its own diagnostics, but a battery check would be a good idea, even if you plug a chager into it, it will probably dump.

Yes, and no i don't have any limitations on my data plan and nor did i turn on the metered connection feature, so idk what's going on.

Everything checks out well...that's why i am so confused.

@Ya_Mi

  1. Which version of Android are you running on the RedMi Note 8 Pro?
  2. Which wireless band are you broadcasting the hotspot on (2.4GHz or 5GHz)?
  3. If you have ‘Developer Options’ available, do you have “Wi-Fi scan throttling” activated? What about “Tethering hardware acceleration”?

Some suggestions:

  1. Turn off ‘Nearby device scanning’, NFC and Bluetooth.
  2. Run a wireless survey using WiFi Analyzer (free on the MS Store) and post the channel analysis (‘Analyze’ tab) of the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands.

Your phone supports wireless-AC (WiFi 5). Why can't you use that instead? The 5GHz spectrum in your area is rather empty.

 

Btw, that wireless survey is just for 5GHz. Need to see 2.4GHz.

My PC does not support WiFi 5.

 

It is the 2.4GHz i showed you

You have to click the 2.4GHz button at the bottom of the graph to change to the next band. Then you’ll see the channel analysis for 2.4GHz.

It doesn’t necessarily have to support WiFi 5; even WiFi 4 with 802.11n had support for utilizing the 5GHz band. The channel analysis you posted above for 5GHz was suggesting that channel 183 (a 5GHz channel) was the best channel to use. See the star rating? Not sure how it could say that without you having a 5GHz antenna. What is your exact make/model of wireless adapter on the PC?

I have changed the WiFi band on the smartphone to 5GHz and my PC doesn't detect the hotspot at all

@Ya_Mi

 

OK, your 2.4GHz analysis is good, so I suppose you can stick with that.

 

Have you determined the exact make/model of your wireless adapter? Check to see if there is any updated drivers for it.


And what is your experience using USB tethering?

 

Test with ‘WiFi scan throttling’ turned off. I don’t expect this to make much of a difference since it really applies to apps running on the phone itself.

Hmmm... That sounds like the issue might be with the phone or the connection to the cellular network itself.

 

With regards to the former, if disabling ‘WiFi scan throttling’ doesn’t help, I’m not sure there’s much else you can do.

 

How far are you from the nearest cell tower?

So i disabled wifi scan throttling and the problem still persist.

 

Around 5KM
