    Do you have to go into settings and get it to connect?
    This happened to me in Jelly Bean but not KitKat.

    You have to insert your password too? Never heard of that problem before...

    I have similar problem that has just started over the last few days.

    WiFi is connected - I leave home and come back later and I then have to manually connect to WiFi again.

    I have some spare mobiles and tested them all and the the Nexus is the only one with the problem.

    Makes use wifi connection is remembered. Also, consider a reboot of the router and see if that resolves the problem.

    I am getting similar issues. Leave the house and Wi fi shuts off and return and it won't see the network, in fact Wi-Fi won't turn on at all.

    I had to reboot the phone to get it to work on Wi-Fi

    I have the same issue. Eventually my Nexus 7 connects if I wait long enough. If I try to connect manually, I have to re-enter my password. This is very frustrating and annoying and defeats the convienence of having a Nexus 7 when I can grab my laptop and lug it downstairs to look up something. I'm hoping Google sends an update or someone finds a fix.

    i think i've got it worked out, try this:

    turn off wifi
    go to wifi advanced settings
    change wifi frequency to 5 ghz
    turn wifi on
    change back to auto
    connect to your router.

    worked for me

    I have had this happen to me a few times. I leave my home wifi area and re-enter and wifi won't auto connect. I have to toggle wifi on/off and then it will connect. Weird.

    I have had the same problem after updating to 4.4.2 and now I can not access my work wifi even though the signal is very strong.

    I have the Galaxy note 3, how do I change the wifi frequency on it as there doesn't seem to that option in wifi advanced settings

    On my Galaxy note 3, after update to 4.4.2, wifi passwords do not remember. I have a wifi network at home and at work. Now I always must manual input passwords when come to work or home. I try to reboot mobile and even reset it to factory, but same problem appears.

    This happened when I got my new HTC One/Verizon at Christmas. I could hook up to my neighbor's wifi (and not too well) but not mine. A day or so after activation, I got an upgrade and after that everything worked. Hoping for something like that again. You would think a new operating system would take care of something like this.

    Chatted with Verizon's online help. (very good and quick by the way)
    Sent me a new modem in 2 days. Had (Westell), now (DLink) It set up all by itself (wow) Still no WiFi luck
    Chatted again because I forgot how to go into the setup for settings, User Name, Password, etc.
    There is a very long generic network and password printed on the modem tag. But underneath the modem is the logon information (dah!) for getting into the setup http://192.168.1.1
    Changed my wireless network name but decided to keep the secure, long password as suggested.
    Anyway the main point is this: Your password for using the HTC One should only use UPPERCASE LETTERS (with numbers is ok)
    WiFi now works great. AND after a day, the battery life seems to be back to normal. Not sure why??? Happy!

    Hi, I had the same problem with S3

    I downloaded "https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.kman.WifiManager" and it did work fine.

    Give it a try.

    Cheers,

    Since January I have the Nexus 5. Before I had an BB 9300. The device works fine, my only issue is the Wifi. The BB was more stable. Last week travelling in NYC and tried various hotspots through the city. The rest of the family uses Iphone 4S, 5 en 5S and all had much better connectivity.

    I am using the Wifi Roaming Fix (from the Playstore).

    Tried the Flightmode but this seems another problem. It does connect but much slower than other devices.

    I hope for a software fix
