    Tried everything; XOOM wifi won't stay on disconnects when in sleep mode.

    I'm going crazy. XOOM wifi won't stay on disconnects when in sleep mode.

    I have ICS 4.0.4

    I have a siemens se567 router, tried 3 different channels.

    I adjusted advanced wifi policy to "never" turn off. I've played with power settings to ensure wifi constantly powered.

    No matter what wifi dies when the screen goes black. I even turned off the screen lock.

    It's a pain when downloading apps since it cuts off when screen sleeps and streaming radio as you can imagine.

    oh and I even tried wifi specific widgets to "stay on" and they also fail.

    Any tips/ solutions???

    thanks

    Welcome to the forum. Glad you decided to join us. If you have the Xoom plugged in got to menu>settings>developer options>Stay awake. Or menu>settings>display>sleep>set it to 30 minutes.

    i think i had this problem when i first got my xoom. i dont know what i did, probably a couple of resets (both the device and the router) and it has been working fine ever since. yeah, i think you may need to just reset the router. my fiance has an acer iconia and her connection kept coming and going. while mines was fine. i reset the router again, and she hasnt had the problem since.

    I have the same issue, it disconnects each night and resets the screen display timer to 15 seconds, does it each night despite me setting them to never turn off wifi and 30 minutes for the screen. Tried everything and I am still on Honeycomb.

    Don't use DHCP with the Xoom. Pick an IP address and set the Xoom to always use it on your WiFi. The option is under advanced (top right dot menu). You can even select the IP it is currently using.

    Try reciting the alphabet backwards out loud at exactly noon. Worked for me.

    :-)

    J/K - seriously though, if wifi on the Xoom is turning off when going to sleep, try this:

    Power cycle the Xoom

    Go to wifi settings, click on the menu button top right, tap advanced.
    Set keep wifi on during sleep to 'always'.
    Tap the back button until you get back to the home screen.
    Power cycle the Xoom.
    Test.

    If those steps did not work, can you confirm you are on a stock rom unmodified?

    You can also re-flash the rom and try again.

    If that fails as well, I would suggest that warrants a call to Motorola tech support.

    I had no issues in HC with downloads or Tunein Pro. In fact, it dings all day/night when emails come in when the screen is off and I am on ICS as well.

    Post back the results.
