    I have the RT-N66U with Shibby's firmware and it's wonderful. I have no wi-fi issues at home.

    I just did a test between my Icon and my coworkers' Iphone 4S and we got comparable speeds on WiFi.

    I have a Razer Blade gaming laptop which has some optimization software built-in, with cellular data off on my Icon, using Speedtest.net, my Icon averaged 30% LESS on the download side and 10% LESS on the upload side. I have AT&T U-Verse, with an AT&T provided wireless router.

    This is very disappointing, any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Signal strength meters across three devices being different doesn't mean much. Maybe find an app that shows you the actual signal level and compare those.
    is there an app that does this? I couldn't find one.

    None that I'm aware of. That's part of what makes it so bogus. Three bars on a Nokia is not the same as 3 bars on another Nokia, not to mention an iPhone, Samsung, etc. The significance of the bars is different across devices.

    My Icon regularly registers only one or two bars of WiFi even when my iPhone and Surface are showing excellent signal. It still "works" (confirmed by making sure "use cell data if WiFi is weak" was off) but it's kinda troublesome.

    I'm having this same issue. Low bars and signal strength on my icon. I can have my 928 right next to it and its full bars. I'm hoping Cyan will fix this.

    Yep. Excellent performance. My Icon was getting consistent 20Mbps+ download speeds, whereas my Surface Pro was getting around 10Mbps on the exact same network and frequency band (5.8GHz).

    Mine is horrible. My Internet speed is 150/75 and my router is either 2.4 Ghz or 5Ghz. It slow on both and drops the single. The router is two feet away.

    Icon
    18.80 Mbps / 5.31 Mbps on 5Ghz. 30 ms to Server
    2.89 Mbps / 5.25 Mbps on 2.4 Ghz. 41 ms to Server

    My MiiX 8.1 update tablet.
    14.53 Mbps / 22.11 Mbps on 2.4 Ghz 22 ms to Server
    28.62 Mbps / 52.27 Mbps on 5 Ghz 17 ms to Server

    My computer to same server

    Mine seems to be getting worse and worse. I had to change the SSID on my 2.4 and 5 Ghz connections and stay on the 2.4 because the 5 wont work at all on my icon. My laptop, roku, 360 all work fine on the 5.0 connection.

    I often have to turn my WiFi off and use Data when laying in bed. I never had to do that with my 928.

    The performance of my WiFi is fast as all hell... but occasionally I have to toggle it on and off to get it to work and it gets quite frustrating. Has to be done probably 3 times a day

    Mines close to 7 times a day, or almost everytime i unlock it!

    its fast if im close to the router... seems like my LTE doesnt get the same quality my 928 did either. I'm pretty close to contacting Nokia about it.

    I just bought an Icon and the WiFi range is terrible in comparison to my Lumia 720.

    Did you install 8.1? I didn't have issues with 8.0, but it's horrible on 8.1.

    Yep, it turns out the poor WiFi reception is an issue with 8.1. It's fine in 8.0.

    I've noticed WiFi cutting out on wp8.1. I wonder if a hard reset would fix it?

    I had hard reset my Icon immediately after updating to 8.1, but I restored from my 8.0 backup, if that means anything. A clean install without restoring might be different.
