    Hello forumers, I need a fix for this problem.
    So there was electricity lines maintenance in my district of the city (I live in Vilnius, capital city of Lithuania), and that caused micro electrical voltage changes, which killed my old D-Link router. I was on a broadband internet at the time, but I decided to change to optic fiber cable, because 300KB/s was definitely too low for my taste. I also bought a Linksys EA6300 (http://www.linksys.com/en-eu/products/routers/ea6300) router. It worked much better than the last one, however I ran into a problem since then. My phone (LG L5 II) finds the Wi-Fi signal no problem, but when I try to load something, like YouTube for instance, it just keeps on loading, and after about 30 secs it just shows Network Error, please try again. If I restart the phone, it works just fine, but when I turn off the screen, my Wi-Fi automatically shuts off. When I turn it backs on, it reconnects instantly, but it starts loading for eternities again. I also have a tablet (Samsung Tab 4 10.1) and it works perfectly. Same for my computer – I use a LAN cable, it works perfectly as well.

    well since anything else connects just fine, you should contact the router manufacturer and see if there may be a known issue with any devices, like your phone. Also check to make sure the router is running the latest firmware.
