    i did, but then rebooted my phone and reconnected to the wifi, and it was fine after. if its still a problem though, i wonder if changing a certain setting would stop the issue, but then the battery would be used faster, so maybe not an option.

    settings >> wifi >> menu >> advanced >> wi-fi optimisation (uncheck it)

    Yeah I've had the same issue, Moto G on Vodafone UK. Since the update the phone is constantly dropping signal and says not connected, its really pissing me off. I'm clearing the cache now and... it seems to be working, yeah man. Thanks OP for starting the thread, still moto should be ashamed.

    of course it shouldn't be necessary, but when it does lose connection (which isn't that often), I just disable WiFi for 2 seconds and then enable it again.

    I have a question.
    I have the same problem, my MOTO G is connected with my wi-fi network but sometimes i get this error:

    Chrome say "you are offline"
    "Clear wipe cache partition" will invalidate the official warranty on MOTO G ??

    Same here.

    I bought the Moto G 8Gb 2 weeks ago and i'm very satisfied, however the wifi keeps dropping. It says the signal is excellent but no connection at all. As blackveils mentioned above, if i disable and enable the wifi, it works perfectly. But after 2-30 minutes stops, no internet (with full wifi signal) and i need to reconnect, turning off and on again. Very annoying. Can't even watch a video. I tried clearing cache partition, factory reset, all the "Advanced Wi-Fi" settings, and even safe mod. None of them worked. I have the updated, 4.4.4 version too. I haven't modified anything.

    ......u see? it shows it's connected. I don't understand what's the problem, maybe the 4.4.4. My older smartphone has STABLE wifi connection with my hotspot. Sorry for any grammar or spelling mistake, i'm not a native english speaker. Thx for any help in advance

    it is mysterious, i used to only lose connection once or twice a day, now its frequent. i wonder what changed. and i did originally clear system cache.
