Wi-Fi Keep Alive




    No more breaking downloads or switching to slow & expensive GPRS/3G.Keep WiFi on even if phone sleeps.

    1. WiFi off if screen off (White widget)
    2. WiFi on if screen off (Green Widget)
    3. WiFi on if screen off & charging (Amber Widget)

    Delete existing widgets and re-add them to show new icons

    The app does _not_:
    - Turn on your wi-fi automatically. It just keeps it enabled if you have turned it on yourself through any other automatic or manual means.
    - do special things to manage turning off wi-fi. There haven't been any reports of wi-fi not turning off when specified so that is left to Android built-in policies

    Explanation for permissions requested:
    Modify Global Settings: To modify wi-fi policy settings

    View WiFi State: To check current wifi state

    Change WiFi State: For a work around that needs to reset your wifi connection on some devices

    Prevent phone from sleeping: Some devices need a partial or full wake lock in order to keep the wifi running

    Full Internet Access: This is again for a workaround that requires pinging your gateway or another address. Without requesting this permission, the pinging fails. The app DOES NOT use the internet for accessing anything else and DOES NOT send or receive any data to/from the internet.

    Receive Boot event: Used to keep the application working across phone reboots if needed.

    Purchased a refurbished phone from eBay to use while personal phone is at the manufacturers. Great phone so I definitely didn't want to have to send it back, but kept getting kicked off of WiFi. This app worked! I checked work around 1 and 2. You have to tweak to your phones needs. Thanks Dev! Phone is working great now! Much appreciated!! I've been on WiFi for hours now without interruptions!

    Have lots of problems w/disconnect, might be router firmware, causing download timeouts every 5-30 min and I would have to bounce wifi. Made a few changes to that and installed this using workarounds 3 and 4, the timeouts all but stopped, have gone 13 hours now. Did notice a pause, then this kicked my connection quickly enough to prevent a timeout.
