Since I got my 7390 from Snap! I thought I'd post this here. It's technically a networking issue but maybe someone can point me in the right direction.

 

I have a Pixel C tablet, non-rooted, running the most recent (May) Android update. I also have a Fritzbox 7390 running the 6.30 firmware. VDSL connection, but that's not relevant to the situation other than I don't want to reset the unit too often and kill my sync rate.

 

The issue is that after resetting the Fritzbox, sometimes the Pixel C can't reach other devices on my home network. This will last until another reset, at which time it may work again (usually does). The Fritzbox itself is always reachable, but neither my home server nor my htpc are accessible over IPv4.

 

I have not specifically configured IPv6, and as I said, IPv4 works when it works. When it's not working (now, for instance) it appears that all local traffic is getting dropped at the router; attempts at connecting to remote desktop, Kodi, etc. just time out. The tablet is getting a valid DHCP lease within the IP range I've configured. Internet connectivity works just fine.

 

Thoughts?

I'm not familiar with a a pixel C but what channel is the router set to? If on auto maybe it sometimes goes to a channel the pixel can't see. Try setting the fritz to a specific channel?

Or try setting the pixel c to a static IP?

No settings have been changed from the last known working configuration. Static IP has no effect. As I said, the tablet is getting a valid dhcp lease. According to the list of connected devices, there are no conflicting IP addresses assigned either.

It's like if I reset it, it works, but if I reset it again, it doesn't.

Does it make a difference if you are connecting on 2.4 or 5 GHz? I read a post the Pixel has problems with some 5 GHz channels.

I recall having tried that awhile back, but I'll give it another shot. I do believe it prefers the 5ghz channel. But it doesn't make sense that the fritz.box webui would be accessible. I have a gut feeling that packets are getting dropped post-WAP.

I found these trouble shooting steps, they're specifically for slow wifi on the Pixel C but have a lot of things you could try that might help:
