    So far I have issues with the 5 GHz band only. It looses connection suddenly and the list of networks in range is very short then. What is strange, is that the 1520 on build 10586, which always worked on 5 GHz, also looses the connection at the same time, while the Surface Pro 3 is still connected. Maybe this is due to the MIMO capabilities of my Asus AC-87U?

    So far I am having no issues using an Asus RT-AC68U running the latest firmware (3.0.0.4.378_9313). I've had an SP1, SP2, and SP3 and IMHO the Marvell WiFI/BT adapters they use are hideous and don't play well in the sandbox with others. You might want to try moving your SP3 to 2.4GHz. The Marvell adapters - again IMHO from personal experience - can't walk and chew gum at the same time so you might try turning off it's BT. I think you'll be amazed at much better is does. My setup is perhaps different from most in that I own no G or B devices nor does anybody that might use my network. Thus I have 2.4GHz set up as 40MHz N only and 5GHz set up as N/AC mixed with 20/40/80MHz. Having not to support B is a wonderful thing, at least for my RT-AC68U

    I might turn off the other devices for testing, but lol, I will definitely not set the SP3 to 2.4 GHz because that is what I bought the AC-87U for. But as there is MIMO, I could imagine that the mobiles are put on a different stream than the SP3, and therefore it still works while the mobiles are blocked. The 1520 and SP3 never had any problems. I also do not run any B or G devices.

    However, I have an even bigger problem with the XL right now as it crashes during calls if the Band 2 is paired.

    I am having Wifi issues as well, the 950XL completely kills off my network and I would have to restart my router in order to get my WiFi back. I'm using a TP-Link C7 Archer.

    I have this same phone and router and am seeing the exact same issue. I have had to reboot my router a dozen times since Friday.

    I am finding that keeping my 950XL connected to the 5ghz reduces the number of times I have to restart my router. But sometimes, the 950XL just doesn't see the 5ghz network and I would have to restart the phone or router. Give that a shot in the meantime.

    My Lumia 950 XL connects just fine at home. I have a very old Belkin router there. I'm having problems connecting to my wifi at work however.
    It does detect if I type in an incorrect password, but is unable to actually connect. I'm getting this message when I try to connect to either the 24GHz or the 5GHz.

    Can't connect Your phone can't connect to the Wi-Fi network <Network SSID>

    Of course my ancient Lumia 900 that I finally replaced last weekend (running Windows 7) had no problems..

    Same issue as you guys. No problems connecting and staying connected to my 2.4Ghz band. Connecting to my 5Ghz band is unstable and randomly loses connection to it with no ability to locate or connect to any 5Ghz connection afterwards. My only solution has been to reboot the device. Sometimes it will stay actually stay connected for the day but then other OS bugs will force me to reboot only start the vicious wifi circle issues over again for me.

    Side note: My laptops, tablets and Lumia 1520 have no issues connecting and staying connected to my 5Ghz band.

    I guess my wife's XL has the same problem here. Since it's not my phone, so I have limited time with it...but on Monday I changed to 5 GHz..then the next day I was trying to check the phone out and it could see my router at all but all other devices were connecting fine. Today I got a complaint that the phone could not connect to wifi at home or at work...so it used up all 4G data for the month...so now my wife has to use slow connection for the rest of the month.

    I have had no issues with either 5ghz or 2.4. I am using an Amped Wireless Athena router. Here is my latest speedtest on 5ghz:

    Linksys E4200 v1: Tomato 1.28.0000 MIPSR2-3.0-132 K26 USB Mega-VPN
    works fine with 1520,xbox one's etc

    I can connect to 5ghz but it says no internet connection
    I can connect to 2.4ghz stable and perfect internet

    I tried all sorts of config/band/channel etc but nothing helps
    guess I wait for insider build next week with all appendage's crossed :)

    UPDATE!
    It seems it does not like Wireless Network Mode "N"
    I forced the router to "A" only and now 5Ghz internet works but...
    its slower then using 2.4ghz - 23Mbit for 5ghz and 29Mbit for 2.4ghtz - :(

    To clarify - in my home I have two AP's. Both broadcast two networks that run N only, one network at 2.4Ghz and one network at 5Ghz. Both AP's broadcast both frequencies and for each of the two frequencies I broadcast the same SSID on both AP's (different SSID for each frequency but the SSID for each frequency is the same on each AP). Same security configuration and password as well between the AP's. My phone connects to one AP in my home just fine but not to the other. I'll have to dig further into their settings to see where they differ.

    There's possibly something else afoot here. I'm having continuous problems with my WiFi (Asus AC-56u on Merlin 378.56_2) and Lumia 640. I've been having it cut out occasionally, to the point of it being very, very annoying. Each time I'll have to restart the router.

    Man, this in conjunction with another Windows 10 thing, my desktop, which has been having a "One or more network protocols are missing on this computer" problem. Didn't restore my computer actually, ended up getting registry keys for WinSock from my laptop and adding them to the registry on my desktop. So far so good.

    I'm trying to figure out what triggers each of these, but it might take some time. I'll post if I figure out anything. Assuming that this is the same problem, that is.

    I have an AU stock (Optus) Lumia 950xl. WiFi was perfect. I did a factory reset, and after the reset, i couldn't even sign into my MS account because none of the WiFis would connect. Other phones and laptops connect perfectly. It can't connect to either of 2x routers, both of which have 5 and 2.4Ghz signals. So it can't connect to any of the 4 signals.

    Trying another factory reset to see if it fixes it.

    I have a generic AU 950 XL from Harvey Norman. I don't recall any WiFi issues until I did a hard reset to solve the "not downloading updates" issue. Let me know how you go with another hard reset. I'm going to look at disabling non-AC bands from my AP when I'm home. I have two SSIDs, one for performance and one for all the plebs.
