    Default Nexus 7 WiFi stability issue

    Hi everyone,
    I received my Nexus 7 in mail yesterday and I've had problem KEEPING a steady WiFi connection. My laptop is keeping connection but the Nexus 7 drops connection at same place, pretty close to the router, every few minutes and then re-connects after about a minute of hanging.
    Anyone else having issues keeping a WiFi connection?

    Other than that tablet works perfectly. No screen leaks like other reported.

    Hi, all.

    New here. Having MAJOR bogus issues connecting.

    Has not connected once to WiFi.

    Was planning on installing new router tomorrow anyways. We'll see if that is the fix.

    Also, in the meantime, I found a little more techno forum addressing the same issues:



    Hope this is not against forum rules (posting another forum's URL. But the developers forum seem to think it my be a hardware issue or bug in the Jelly Bean.

    Have a good evening.

    I had the exact same issue the first night I had the 7. At first I thought it was my wifi, but tested other devices and none had the problem. I started a continuous ping on the nexus and found that every couple of minutes, the ping would drop. The nexus was still connected to the network, but traffic stopped.

    To make a long story short (too late), I did a full wipe and restored the nexus back to factory. The problem went away completely. It's been about 5 days and have not had a single recurrence of the issue.

    Sent from my Nexus 7 using Android Central Forums

    I seem to be having this issue as well. I'll try the factory reset and see if that works.

    My Nexus 7 connects fine at home, but at work with the WPA2 Enterprise using TLS it's a no go. I've found a few other links indicating this is a Jellybean issue. I don't think anybody has been able to connect using Jellybean without rooting their device. Supposedly there is a fix that can be applied, but you have to have root to apply it. There are bug reports logged with Google, also I've called Google's support line and they said they would look into it. Hopefully this will be fixed in a patch soon. Very disappointing to not be able to connect at work.

    When I power on my Nexus 7 (not wake from sleep) it takes almost a minute before it connects to my wifi. Also get a very weak signal if I go upstairs.

    And it's this weak wifi signal that triggers the screen flicker.

    Do not have this problem with my Transformer TF-101 , iPad 3 or PlayBook.

    guys, this device looks weird to me. it appears they haven't tested the most important part of a tablet, the Wifi.
    its so unstable. check this link .

    I am suffering from same issue but only when I hold it top left in portrait mode.
    See the pic and I also pasted the ping results. man it is timing out.
