    AT&T pulled it for the S4. There's some chatter that there may be a "fix" coming to Verizon also.

    Oh good. I'm almost regretting getting my S4 last week at this point. I like the phone, but the issues with Wi-Fi are killing me. Not just missing connectivity, but when connectivity is lost, it doesn't like to unlock via PIN. It'll think about it, and maybe 10 seconds later accept the PIN. Any link to this Verizon 'chatter'? I just checked VZW's website, the 4.3 update PDF is still there.

    Here's Samsung Galaxy S4 Android 4.3 Update Issues where I saw a reference to Verizon today, plus I've seen a few other posts in the past week or two indicating some kind of fix may be coming from Samsung.

    Here's the latest bit of hearsay: a Verizon customer reports hearing from a Verizon rep who had spoken with Samsung that the patch may be out mid-December: . Don't know if that's just for WiFi issues, or is more general.

    Here is an update from me. I read in some other posts that you should factory reset your device after an over the air update. I was thinking, that has to be a PITA. (So correct!) So, with all the wifi error messages and sluggishness, I did the factory reset. You will never get back the time it takes to get your device back to what it was before the reset, but it works. No more wifi error messages and the device is back to snappy with no lag. If you have the patience and time...do it. Back up everything on your device, and don't forget favorites and notes!

    I tried a factory reset as well, but it didn't improve things. Wi-fi still disconnects randomly, and usually says 'obtaining IP address' or 'authentication failed' in the wi-fi settings area. Disabling and re-enabling fixes it every time.

    Same for me (minus the factory reset). Turning wifi off, then on fixes it, but this started with the 4.3 update.

    I have the same issue on my HTC one after OTA 4.3 update. Factory reset hasn't fixed the issue. Only turning wifi off and back on fixes it.

    Been struggling to stay connected while at a hotel. Other devices connect just fine. Even tried setting the hotel as one of "my places via WiFi" in advanced settings. Constantly getting "internet unstable" messages and connections won't work.

    I've tried everything from updating my router, to changing router settings, to changing wifi settings on my phone. Short of doing a factory reset, I'm out of ideas. Nothing seems to work (although changing my router settings seemed to fix it for like a week, but perhaps that was just an anomaly and coincidental).

    Anyway, here's the issue I have, that I seem to share with many people:

    1 )The Wi-Fi will say its connected, but it won't work. Even though it says its connected, I cannot update news feeds or surf the web or do anything needing the internet. Usually I just wait for around 20 or 30 seconds and it will reconnect saying "Connected to Wi-FI network ______" and then it works fine for another 10 minutes before doing it again.


    2) When I unlock my phone/wake it up, it sometimes says the "Connected to Wi-Fi network ______".


    It is extremely frustrating, because I use Google Now voice commands for a lot of things, and none of them work when this happens. It's also slightly embarrassing to be showing off my phone, and ask google now to do a fancy command, only to have it sit there for a while doing nothing while it tries to load.

    It did this when it had Android 4.2.2 as well, although not as frequently as 4.3 (unless I'm just noticing it more). I'm almost to the point where I'm going to disable wifi all the time and just use LTE

    Here's a screen shot of the Google Now annoyance:

    Having serious problems with my home wifi lately too. Now I get the question mark over the wifi icon at the top of my homescreen all the time. Even when I'm standing right next to my verizon router. It will show the Strong connection and then " saved, secured " But no connection...it will just start scanning again...... Now my data usage is going way up!!!!!

    Just curious, how many of you all are running that Verizon anti-virus SW that comes bundled with phone but needs to be activated called 'VZ Protect'? It's made by McAfee. Just on a whim, I turned off the 'Action Scan' called 'Message sent/received'. And turned off the 'Site Advisor' at the bottom. I don't think it's 100% fixed, but it seems better. Anyone else want to give it a try to verify? I've had it off for a couple hours.

    I never even knew that app existed. I went into the applicaton manager to turn off the app, but it was hard to find.

    It is listed as 'Verizon Support & Protect'

    Others may not want to turn off this app, but for those that do, I thought this might save you some searching.

    in settings click on wifi then click on the lower left corner of your phone - and choose advanced then auto network switch, mine is turned off and my galaxy note will not stay connected to my wifi for more then a few minutes, some days are better then others. I troubleshooted, and the issue is the phone, not sure if its software or hardware. I have reset the phone, same results, keeps disconnecting. This is a deal breaker for me

    Just got a Note 3 from ATT. I like the phone a lot except for the Wifi. It connects okay at home but not when I'm out and about, whether in a restaurant or at a mall. It may say 'connected' but it won't download the webpage. One thing I noticed is that the the WiFi signal indicator at the top of the screen loses bars (weak signal) but other phones around such the Iphone 5 of BB Z10 connect to the web with no problem. .

    For anyone having problems with your 3G/4G/Data overriding or preventing your WiFi from connecting, give this a shot:

    1. Settings/More/ApplicationManager
    2. Select the AT+T Navigator App
    3. Select TURN OFF
    4. Restart your phone
    5. See if that corrects the problem.

    Hmmm seeing as this is the VERIZON forum board and AT+T Navigator is...well AT&T, I'm not sure that applies.

    Uh... Sorry... I meant to suggest that you check if there is a similar Verizon Navigator App creating a similar problem
