WiFi Does Not Turn On

After an automatic update was installed (5.0.2), WiFi won't turn on anymore. If I try to turn it on, it just says turning on but it won't open. The WiFi Address, MAC Address and Bluetooth Address in Settings only shows "Unavailable".

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Oh Its Difficult You Need To Downgrade Your Device So You Can Use Wifi Again. I Hope It Works

Downgrading your device is not necessary. Sony released the update to the phone after they tested it. Do think Sony would have upgraded the device if wifi didn't work?


It not always help. Sometimes it is hardware issue so software solution wont help.
