    Replaced my M9 with a 10 and couldn't be happier but I have one strange problem.

    The SiriusXM app I listen to at work via Wifi will not play for more then a minute or two. I get constant network error messages.

    The strange thing is spotify and Youtube work fine (no interruptions). I know about the 10's WiFi issues but I would have expected any app that uses Wifi to have trouble if it was a hardware problem not just the SiruisXM app.

    Any advice on how to debug would be most appreciated.

    I installed a WiFi signal strength app on the 10 and my old M9....will measure the signal on each when I'm at work to see if their is a big difference.

    Wanted to force 2.4G Wifi but that option no longer exists on the 10 (verizon version)

    I think you can use an app called "WiFi Manager" that does just that.

    Thanks for the reply. Downloaded that app. still didn't see a way to force 2.4G.
    However the power/signal strenght was exactly the same as my M9. So now I'm thinking its something with the router at work. Maybe somehow it throttles back on new devices. I'm going to bring in two more old phone tomarrow and see if they behave the same as the 10.

    If I was really cleaver I would change the 10's MAC address to the M9's and see if I'm able to stream uninterrupted. But that is way beyond my ablity.

    Well, if you have access to 5GHZ and 2.4GHZ networks with your HTC 10, go to your WiFi and select "Forget network" on the 5GHZ. That's a way to force and default connection to another WiFi network.

    Tried 4 phones at work today. All running the same version of Sirius XM app and connected to Wifi at work.
    New HTC 10 - Wont stream.
    Previous HTC One M9 - Works fine.. can stream all day.
    Older HTC One M7 - Wont stream.
    Barrowed Galaxy S4 - Won't stream.

    Looks like I was lucky with my old M9.
    Its like any new device is not allowed to stream. I didn't think it was possible for a wireless router to limit some devices and not others. I tried spoofing the M9's MAC address on the M7 but it wouldn't authenticate. I give up.
