anyone knows why sometimes all of a sudden out of the blue all my iOS devices (iOS 8) will connect to the router but have no internet access

(it connects to wifi, but uses 3G. router sees the device.)

nothing will fix it short of factory reset router

Have you checked for a proxy or a static ip/dns etc in the wrong range on the device?

Are you using custom DNS entries? HG659 drops them on a reboot so iOS and some other devices fail to DNS look up. Only solution I have found is to re-enter DNS after a reboot.

My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

I used the Huawei to assign ONE static ip to my HTPC. should I not do that and set it on the device instead

I am on spark so I entered spark DNS, the internet would work even with default Voda DNS so I don't see why that could be an issue, and the all of a sudden had no rebooting involved

I think the Huawei is allergic to the iphones (not the otherway round, I'm pretty sure the issue is on the router side)

what setting do you choose for

WAN-side address allocation mode (normal / passthrough)
DNS mode: Manually configure the DNS server for LAN devices or CPE acts as the DNS proxy 

I think i'll get rid of this thing

I tweaked the above settings - seems to be reconnected. thanks for suggesting a DNS allocation related issue

- although my prediction is something else might pop up ... watch this space!

only had this for 2 days!

joker97: all my laptops connect fine?


When routers start to fail, its often not 100% failure, but little things, things you might not even notice. For example bandwidth control starts playing up, port forwards fail, wifi drops, etc etc.

Having 'something' still working is probably the norm.

edit: Who is your ISP? I only ask because i've had problems with a Spark connection recently which was 'fixed' by manually entering the ISP DNS Settings in the router. Not sure if its the ISP or router, but suspect the later.

There was a similar issue with the hg630, where Apple devices disconnected and needed a manual input to rejoin the network. Switching off 'auto login' setting for the wifi connection in iOS helped in that instance.

I had the same problem last week. After trying a few things I clicked on 'Renew Lease' in the wifi settings on the iPad and everything has been fine since then.

I had the issue non-stop, wifi connected but no internet available on multiple different wifi devices...... went back and forth with V/fone multiple times and got nowhere, they even sent another unit but same issue. In the end I turned off the built in Wifi and bought a Unifi.

I just think its a dodgy firmware but getting V/fone to acknowledge that is a no go zone. Someone on GZ did mention that they upgraded the firmware using Sparks version and that seemed to work fine......
