I have problems staying connected to my WIFI network with the Z10. The Z10 right away detects my local WIFI network and connects. There is a strong signal showing in the top right corner of the screen. Launching the browser, I can load one or two pages then it stops and after a while I get a message that I am not connected to the internet.
The only way to get a connection back is to turn off and on the WIFI signal in the Z10.
Then again I have a connection, the browser loads one or two pages then stops again,no connection. Same error message. I have been through that vicious circle about 10 time now.
To try to solve the problem I changed the WIFI connection from Auto IP (DHCP) to a manual fixed IP, same results, the Z10 connects then disconnects even tough it still shows a strong connection signal in the screen and shows "connected" when pulling down the menu from the top of the screen and also in settings.
This is NOT a local network problem as I have and iPad (WIFI) , PC (direct connection to the router) and desktop Mac (WIFI) all staying connected perfectly.
To finish, the Z10 is running the original OS 10.0.9.2372. It has not been updated yet
Any Ideas on how to fix it?

I have had this problem with tablets and phones. When I had this problem I noticed that there were other WiFi networks nearby that had very strong signals. For some reason the phone was trying to switch over and access the other networks.
On the Z10, I don't see the feature for the WiFi to only show and work with saved connections. The tablet has that feature.
A fix may be to try setting up your WiFi source (router) to a different format. For example if it is in automatic change it to manual and try g or b type. You can also see if there is the option to change the channel group. I realize this starts to become complicated for the average person to start experimenting with.
If the WiFi source is set to a different standard, you may have to re-register the phone to your new WiFi spec if it does nto find it on its own.

I'm facing the same problem. The phone connects to the wifi network, is connected to internet for first few seconds and then it breaks. It doesnt download anything after that. It I turn off the Wifi from my phone and switch it on, it's same thing again. I'm using the same internet network on my computer and facing no problems there, so the wifi is working fine. My software release is 10.0.10.58 and it's showing no updates available yet.
If anyone finds a solution please do share, this is a very annoying error and needs an update asap..
