network connectivity issue - requires daily reboot
I recharge my phone overnight, and generally use fingerprint to unlock.
But, every morning the initial unlock requires PIN; the unlock screen shows the message
PIN is required when you restart your device
If I check the system 'up time', it doesn't appear to have rebooted during the night.
Does anyone else get this?
I could live with having to enter PIN once a day, but the main issue is that after unlocking, most apps fail to connect to the internet (with varying results; some just crash, others handle it better and display a "can't connect" message).
It seems like google apps (eg chrome, maps) are the only ones that can connect to the internet (perhaps because they are somehow 'system apps'??)
If I try to `ping google.com` in a virtual terminal emulator, I get the message "Destination port unreachable".
It doesn't seem to be specific to wifi or mobile data:
- If I turn wifi off and leave mobile data on, pinging google.com returns "unknown host". If I instead ping by IP address instead of DNS name then I again get "Destination port unreachable".
- If I turn mobile data off and leave wifi on, then attempting to ping google.com again gives "Destination port unreachable".
If both wifi and mobile data are turned off, then attempting to ping gives 'network is unreachable' (as you'd expect).
As far as I can tell, the only way to rectify this situation is to reboot the phone; after that everything works normally.
I've only had the phone a few weeks, and I'm pretty sure it wasn't always doing this and only started about a week ago (tho I could be wrong). I'm on version 188.8.131.52 but I don't know when it updated to that (I previously had it set to 'automatically update', but have since changed that to manual).
Does anyone else have this issue, or suggestions how to troubleshoot further?
