    OnePlus 6 has a wifi bug where when the phone sleeps so does the wifi connection. Have to off/on wifi toggle to get wifi working again even after waking the ohone.
    Very annoying.


    Anybody else experienced it?
    Factory loaded firmware nothing else

    Try this then:

    Go to Settings--->Backup and Reset--->Network Settings Reset--->Reset Settings

    Tell me if it solves your problem

    I'm also having this issue. My wifi setting is set to sleep the wifi unless charging.

    Resetting Network settings doesn't fix it.

    It usually takes up to 5-10 minutes before the Wifi successfully turns back on and connects

    My unit won't even allow the WiFi to come on... The toggle refuses to go to the On position, nevermind keeping WiFi on during sleep. And the System UI occasionally just hangs when I try to turn on the WiFi. I can't possibly expect to reset the phone every time I come home, where there's WiFi -- and that's assuming that it fixes the refusal to turn on WiFi -- right?

    Have you experienced the same on different Wi-Fi networks?

    I use an email app (Aquamail) that polls various mail servers at user defined intervals. All was fine with OP5 but it now reports connection failures when I wake the phone. A manual refresh succeeds which implies that the WiFi is sleeping despite being set not to.

    Does anyone know why WiFi calling doesn't work? Is it an issue with the phone or my carrier (MetroPCS)? It's on via the sim settings, but I can't receive or send calls or texts when I'm on WiFi without a mobile data connection.
