  • The log shows you should have received a Warning as the channel you are using is experiencing Co-channel interference, this takes place when two access points within a network are on the same channel , causing interference that weakens the signal and thus provides problems to the end-user experience on the network
    • You need to review the 2nd bullet item in my initial response and select a different channel (you’re currently on 42)
  • What is the status of the Sprint network at home? # of bars and if you turn off WiFi in Settings can you make a call

Thank you for your prompt response. If I understand correctly the channel selection will require access to the router for programming. The last time our isp replaced the router the password to the router was changed. I’m sure that I can request that information from the isp tech support. I will chase that when I get the opportunity. As for Sprint network at this location, there is none. Not possible to place or receive calls except on Wifi. I generally use a landline here at home and when at other locations that I am connected to WiFi I receive calls normally. Please close this topic as I’m fairly certain that you are correct about the channel selection. I appreciate your help.



ok, that coincides with what the diagnostics show for telco connection, (Sprint-CDMA)
With the advent of combining T-Mobile/Sprint facilities there have been reliable reports of users connecting to both. So a couple of things you may want to explore:

  1. Turn off Cellular connection (Go into Airplane Mode, then in the Android settings on your phone turn on the WiFi
    • Note: the status indicator will not reflect the connection to your WiFi due to Android code limitations
  2. Post back your Zipcode, and the community can check to see if change over to GSM/T-Mobile would possibly benefit you.
  3. What is the router make/model (this is usually on a sticker on the back-bottom of router) then if you let us know the ISP perhaps one of us could check to see if you could access/update your router.

Hello Jben,

  1. I always have the phone in airplane mode while at home with the WiFi
    turned on to preserve battery life.

  2. The zip code here is 59844. Up until now when updating our phones we
    have had to request CDMA sim cards since the only nearby tower is CDMA
    only. A new tower has been installed approximately 7 miles away but I
    cannot detect even the slightest improvement in signal strength and i
    can find no one who knows anything about it. I do not know if GSM or
    CDMA or if it has even been activated yet. I would like to get the
    answer to this last since I have been considering upgrading phones and
    obviously need the correct sim card.

  3. The router is a Comtrend, model NexusLink 3240 with the ISP

I did switch my phone over do a different option of available WiFi links
such as you see when connecting to WiFi sources looking at your phone
and was able to call my cell using the landline.

Sorry I struckout trying to locate any cell towers near Heron, MT and you would probably have better luck with the ISP in getting your router channel changed.
You are currently on 42, and you could use the info provided in the Tools section at the end of Router Tweaks - Keep WiFi 1st - a Community Guide to predetermine what your other neighbors might be using, and select a clean channel and have the ISP change to that.
