    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.
    if its the one in your pic, then its a cheap router. dual band would help your cause. if the netgear something or other router is the wnr2000 then you could try the latest firmware: WNR2000v4 Firmware Version 1.0.0.50

    Oh it's a cheap router, that's no secret. I'll try updated firmware.

    Just adding in here since its been a few weeks since the last update. I used to have issues with my Icon always going to limited connectivity, but since the last update, I have not had a single issue! Everything is working better than ever and I am super happy and hope everybody else is too! :)

    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 have the same issue where it is as if my wifi isn't refreshing the network list. Instead of rebooting, select one of the random networks. Then I enter random characters for the password. When the password fails, I find that my network list has refreshed. Frustrating, but better than rebooting.

    Chiming in to say that my WiFi has been awful since February and I have replaced the phone thrice. I am currently sitting not 30 feet away from my router in the same room and it has been fluctuating between 0-3 "bars" on the WiFi indicator. The Wireless G USB stick in my PC is getting a very good 5 bar connection.

    Assume these are 8.1 issues sure hope they get resolved with cyan update a little embarrassing for this "flagship" phone. I will have to try the random character fail work around. Started wondering if all the WiFi issues are an attempt to increase data consumption when WiFi isn't able to reconnect.

    Unfortunately, I have had these problems on 8.0.

    Checking in to say that reverting to 8.0 has made a noticeable positive difference.

    The only issue I have is signal strength with 5ghz networks. 2.4ghz are super strong, but slow. My 5hgz networks get full speed but tend to have 1 or 2 bars at all times and drop out often.

    Two words: Developer Preview. No one on Verizon is running official Cyan/8.1. Allowing everyone to run the DP and not controlling the release of the official package has bitten Microsoft in the ***.

    Do you mean bitten Verizon in the ***? I think it makes them look worse than MS. I expect in most peoples eyes MS is finally listening and responding to community feedback by creating the program.

    My WiFi experience with denim is greatly improved. It was beyond poor running DP on black.

    I got results similar to indistinguishable. Even though my Icon showed a weaker wireless signal than my laptop, it showed higher download (27 vs. 13 Mbps) and upload (13 vs. 12 Mpbs) speeds. Maybe the issue is with the signal indicator rather actual performance.

    The WiFi reception on my Icon improved significantly with Denim.
