  20. Hello, thanks for the advice.
    Since yesterday I’ve been having an annoying problem with POCO X3’s wifi, it can connect to other routers but has stopped recognizing mine, it’s “connected” but says “no internet”. My other devices have internet from that same router.
    First time it was fixed by turning the wifi off and on again.
    Second time I selected ‘forget network’ and re-entered password.
    Third time I restarted the phone
    Now I’ve reset wifi, mobile networks, and Bluetooth, and the only thing it managed to do was forgetting how to use a sim card.
    Updates seem to be updated.
    Router seems to be working fine, although yesterday this tablet and my laptop had the same issue once.

  21. Please can you help?
    I have just bought a Poco x3 pro but can’t connect to my WiFi. It says “couldn’t connect try again”. I know my password is correct. I have tried your suggestions but still no good. Please can you help?
    Thank you

    • I am sorry for not being able to help you 🙁
