[Solved] Google Play Accessible Using Mobile Data, Fails Over WiFi

Posted on 26 Apr, 2015 in android

Accessing Google Play Store from Android phones and getting the error message "connection timed out" - this is a very common issue for Android users. There are TONS of threads out there regarding this problem.

It had been one month since I couldn't access Google Play Store using my wireless router. My connection is good to go. Surprisingly I could log into Google Play using mobile data connection. Weird, right?

Each time I opened Play Store app, I got this error code after the loading animation spinning for several times. Even I tried to install apps from Play Store Web, but I got this error in my phone statusbar.

Update for Gmail could not be downloaded due to an error 921

Then I found that it was an issue with MTU of my ISP. So I shell'ed into my droid and fired up this command.

adb shell
ifconfig wlan0 mtu 1400 up

After pressing "Retry", Google Play Store was alive in my phone. Viola!
