    Well, that's good. I prefer things to work properly. Maybe I'm Sheldon Cooperish about it.
    Oh, it bothers me. Just not enough to tip the scale enough to give up quiet hours and notification center.

    Honestly, I think it mainly has to do with 5GHz. I have my home network SSID's segregated 2.4 and 5.0 GHz and my Icon (with May Verizon firmware update and 8.1DP) is MUCH better on 2.4 than 5. If I manually connect to the 5 network it drops connectivity easily, but it sticks on the 2.4 GHz network like glue.

    Before I upgraded to the 8.1 DP, I could stay on that same 5GHz network much further away and speeds were much better.

    I'm guessing the drivers on DP are not optimized for this hardware and Cyan will take care of it.

    Might be more than one cause of the problems, of course.

    My experience with wifi, I can say on 5Ghz network using AC standard works with no issues. But if you router hasn't ac and u have setup on N, so network speed is down twice or three times less. So I haven't saved screenshots but with AC download speed is ~66Mb/s (same on computer download speed) but N = 32Mb/s.
    Router what I have Asus RT-AC68U (Tomato firmware).

    I have an n router at home and it is so awful: connectivity, speed, etc. was in a hotel recently and it was incredible. maybe I should go buy an ac router?

    My Icon has been working great on 5GHz with my Apple AirPort Express router.

    I run three Apple Express in extension mode and a new Apple TimeCapsule to cover my house and patio. My Icon has real trouble handing off to the strongest signal, will hang on to a very weak one until I cycle WiFi off/on. Eventually sometimes it will switch.

    Man, I'm sick of the sucky wifi. My Icon with 8.1 has to be restarted if I want to connect to wifi. After re-starting, it will find and connect to previous wifi's. After a while, I can look at the wifi settings and either it sees the known connection and won't connect, or it won't even see the known and long-established hotspot. This is at work, home, or other places I frequent. Lucky I have unlimited data and good cellular, and hopefully, cyan will fix it.

    I do not have any trouble with my Icon. Obviously, something exists though...it seems to be a plaguing issue.

    Yes. I am running the DP, but I did get the 12400 before they pulled it.

    just set up a 5gz ac router at home and wifi performance is much better on my icon than with my n router.

    it was a refurbed Linksys, $60 on amazon.

    Better speed? Better range?

    I bought this router and set it up last night. Went from almost no connectivity on my Icon at home to full strength in the same spot. I got tired of waiting for VZW to release Cyan but going back to 8.0 in the meantime just wasn't an attractive option.

    My WiFi is actually worse since the recent update. I show more bars, but the signal isn't noticeably better.

    What's more frustrating, though, is every few days it will just stop looking for new networks. It will freeze and show a few networks I'm not familiar with but must be near at some point because it's always one of the same two groups. If I turn the WiFi off and then back on it will immediately show these same networks. They aren't ones I'm near at the time. Usually turning on and turning off solves my issues (like when it kept refusing to connect to my home network after being on another network elsewhere), but this doesn't. Only rebooting the phone will.

    I've had that issue where it stops recognizing networks as well, but only a couple of times. I've been at the mall, say, and when I come home it still only shows the networks that were available at the mall. Only a reboot fixes it.

    I get that every now and then too, even with the latest firmware from Verizon.

    I still think that the problem of the icon and the 928 is the English language or operator, I had a 928 and worked perfect here in Colombia with my operator now I have a icon and also works perfect. battery after 12 hours of use 71% wi-fi always on four counts of mail, facebook, twitwer, whatsapp, wi-fi is behaves well, no reboots and works here in Colombia in LTE, with 63Megas discharge and 7Megas charge, the only thing is that when working on LTE is shown as if it had no network connected, but navigating perfect ...

    Right, exactly. Every couple of days it will stop connecting to known wifi networks and only a reboot will fix it. I didn't really notice any difference with the 8.1 update 1, still doing the same thing. Come on Microsoft.

    Yeah same thing for me too all of a sudden I'll notice my Wi-Fi is off and my home network I connect to every day does not show up... My neighbors don't either. A reboot is the only thing to fix it

    I'm curious if anyone has a similar situation to me and knows what the problem is. I get home before my wife does and my 928 will be connected to wifi and working just fine. As soon as she pulls in the driveway with her Icon, the router apparently goes haywire and no one has wifi (phones, tablets, computers). Sometimes the phones will detect the router but not connect. Sometimes the phones will connect to the router but say no internet access. Once everything is rebooted, all is well on all devices...until she leaves and comes back with the Icon and then we repeat the whole thing. It's very frustrating, especially when streaming because if I don't catch that it's streaming via cellular I go through a lot of data.

    Netgear something or other. Looks like this. One thing I do know is that maybe 6 months ago setting up something with DirecTV, I pushed the WPS button on the bottom without knowing what it is. Ever since then I've had problems with everything. Just more recently seems to be extra screwy with the Icon.
