  1. Model Name: ASUS Zenfone 9
  2. Firmware Version: WW_32.2030.2030.26
  3. Rooted or not: Non-Rooted
  4. Frequency of Occurrence: Daily.



I have multiple WiFi networks at home, one from the main Router, and another from an extender.

I am used to my old phone, were it would automatically switch network when the extender's network get significantly stronger.

For some reason the Zenfone 9 will not switch no matter the bad connection from the current network, or how strong the closest is.

Does anyone know how to solve it?


  • I have similar issue where my WiFi is working well and suddenly nothing loads but I still have full bars and I check my iPhone 6 it has less bars but everything is loading quick wherears in the zenfone nothing loads so annoying. Z9 has very inconsistent WiFi connectivity.

  • Hey @MatunS,

    Have you enabled the Network preferences? (Settings>Network & Internet>Internet>Network Preferences>Turn on WiFi automatically) Or enabled the dual-band? (WiFi Settings>Network & Internet>Internet>Dual-band Wi-Fi)

  • Hi @Mansi_ASUS ,

    I do not enable "Turn on WiFi automatically", because it is location based, while this issue is inside the same house, at 2 edges of the house (not a big one, but did work on POCO X3 NFC).

    Also, dual band will not solve it since it is on the same frequency bands.

  • Yup, the same happens to me very frequently, it takes couple or seconds before it starts to load something, then it loads fine, just the delay
