This Feb update really messed up my wifi. I've already reset all network settings, but still I can only connect to my 5ghz. It's always showing "Check password and try again" for 2.4ghz. My laptop and other phones don't have issue connecting to both.
Mine no problem on both 2.4 and 5 GHz wireless, be it home, customer or corporate wireless.

anyway, anyone facing persistent gmail syncing notification the past 2 days or so?

mine has been going on a few hours at a time and i can't seem to swipe it away. comes and goes as it likes

so far not noticing battery drain, so it's just a visual irritation.

found others suffering from the same problem too:
https://forums.androidcentral.com/go...y-syncing.html
in case anyone else is encountering this, managed to pinpoint the root cause of the problem to Exchange. the persistent gmail syncing notification will only appear if you have an Exchange account being synced to ur Gmail app (eg. Hotmail, Outlook, MSN).

notification disappeared once i removed the account. so i'm now using both the Outlook app and Gmail app for emails while waiting for an update to resolve the issue. on the other hand, the Outlook app looks pretty damn good to me! would have never downloaded it if not for this

CrowdyNews is the social media widget that appears right at the bottom of every thread, and also at the page where you reply to a post.

Can you help to see if DNS66 blocks CrowdyNews pls?
Okay it doesn't block that social media widget thing. Didn't realise that's considered an ad? But it's at the bottom of the page so it's not exactly very intrusive.

Haha of course password is correct. Anyway, might try to factory reset since long weekend ahead. New Year, New Format.
All the best. Hopefully if no issues after factory reset means could be u have one or more bogus apps causing the issue. If u do manage to resolve it or pinpoint which app is the one causing this maybe can update here too for awareness

It's not really an ad strictly speaking but some adblockers can block such stuff too. I was using AdGuard previously, and just using it in it's default state, it could block the CrowdyNews social media widget on HWZ. But now it doesn't do so anymore, unless I manually add one of those publicly available filters called Fanboy Annoyances. But this one too potent. Causes issues with loading Channel Newsasia website. So I'm living with the social media widget for now. Not very intrusive, but still nonetheless an eyesore, and which causes extra data to be consumed to load that social media widget.

You will have to use another launcher. Try Nova?

Hi there, anyone with issues attaching files on Gmail?

Once I try to attach files, it will show files keep stopping.

I believe it's due to the files app but don't think we can use other 3rd party app (correct me if I'm wrong)

Format fixed my issue with connectong to 2.4ghz. Installed all my previous apps and wifi still working. So maybe just a bad update.

Using activesg? Delete the app.

I confirm there is a problem with 2.4G. It keeps disconnecting when I'm at the farthest room. Usually, connection is stable.

How is your WIFI after reset?

Edit: Surprisingly, the 5G is strong. I can connect to 5G at the farthest room and achieve at least 100 Mbps speed. My farthest room is 3 walls away from the router.
