If you’re having problem with viewing Profile pictures on Facebook Android Messenger and Facebook official app over Wi-Fi, try this.
I have seen many people facing this issue, It works well if you’re on Mobile Data. My Friend’s new Wi-FI also started acted like this. So I tried tweaking the settings and finally found the issue.
- First Connect to your Wi-Fi Connection.
- Open Your WiFi Settings
Settings > WiFi > Long press on the Connection name > Modify Network
- Select Advanced Settings
- Change “IP Settings” from DHCP to “Static”
- Change the DNS to 18.104.22.168 and DNS2 to 22.214.171.124.
This is the main step. Change the DNS to 126.96.36.199 In most cases, when you delete the default DNS, these numbers are automatically filled
- Select “Save” That’s all! Go to your Facebook app and verify that it’s working. If you’re still facing this problem or any question about the above instruction. You can ask them in the comments.
P.S: If you’re below Android version 4.0 (ICS) changing the DNS option is a little different, I skipped it because majority of the Android phones are now 4.0+. You can Also change the DNS of your Router to 188.8.131.52 to fix this issue. Refer the user manual of your Router to know how to change it.
