I understand that paying $10 for an LGL34C from Tracfone means I have a pretty crappy phone, but I still have no explanation for why this is happening.
That's the problem here - it's not that it drops the connection (which it sometimes does, because the wifi is crappy), it's that my phone very frequently disconnects me by turning the wifi off completely (and then I have to enable it again and select "Target Wi-Fi" every. time. I don't know how it can remember my home wifi but not my work wifi!). And I mean frequently as in "within ten seconds of enabling it." I've watched the icon go back to "off" a few seconds after I enabled it again. Some days I seem to spend half of my breaks enabling the wifi again.
I just want to know why it's doing this and how I can get it to stop. I've tried "keep wifi on" apps, but they're designed for keeping wifi on during sleep (which is not my issue - the wifi stays on during sleep at home).
