Nexus 5 Owners Are Running Into Problems With Android L

The latest version of Google’s operating system has an issue connecting to Wi-Fi networks following the Android 5.0 (Lollipop) update

We had all been waiting for this moment ever since the Android L came out on the Nexus phones. It isn’t unusual for the new software to run with errors and this is why we were probably glad that it didn’t make it to other phones too early. A software rollout isn’t complete unless there are some bugs and the Android L is not exception here, particularly on Nexus 5. And it is not an ordinary issue which this latest OS by Google is facing; users are mostly facing problems when it comes to connecting to the Wi-Fi networks after the Android 5.0 (Lollipop) update if they have somehow managed to install it properly.

It has been nearly a month since the developers have been badgering Google about this issue which prevents the Android L devices from connecting to the internet. One complaint from a developer even says that the Nexus 5 can save the password but then it fails to actually connect as reported by Business Insider. And it is not just the Nexus 5 which is facing this problem but also the Nexus 7 and 9 tablets.

So the issue basically originates from the latest version of the Android L for the Nexus 5 and Google appears to have no fix for this at the moment. This is a major problem particularly for the users who have to rely on Wi-Fi and it must be pretty hard for the Nexus 5 users since is the second Wi-Fi issue to affect the Nexus 5 following the release of Android L. The first issue came when the battery drained however that problem has been taken care of now. In addition to this, the bug also cancels the installation of Android L on the Nexus 5 as well as a number of other devices.
