    Completely disabled Smart Actions and my issue persisted after 10 minutes or so. The Wi-Fi Analyzer was consistent and never seemed to show a "drop" in dBm. Wi-Fi just went White (Gray) and never fully dropped as it does at times but it fails to work. This is worse then a Wi-Fi drop that completely goes away because at least the drop attempts to come back. This gray issue is basically telling me it's connected but receiving no data even though it has a great signal. To be clear - I've experienced both the Gray Wi-Fi and No-WiFi before with this phone on other setups.

    And again, this has been 3 different devices with multiple router set ups. No other devices, including a HTC Thunderbolt, RAZR Maxx, Xyboard, Xoom, Sony Vaio Laptop, HP Laptop, etc. have connection issues.

    Wow that sucks. I was really hoping that would solve it for you. Really makes no sense why all other devices are fine and the phone isn't.
    I'm afraid I'm out of suggestions based off my experiences.

    This is probably useless information but: My RAZR HD Maxx works "perfectly". I have the box clicked for "Avoid poor connections" and use a Netgear WNDR3700 router at home but the phone also performs well with any routers I have encountered.

    So my obvious suggestion, which I don't think has been posted in this thread yet is: Have you downloaded an app which is causing this problem?

    I considered this before so I did a factory reset and didn't recover settings. No luck.

    I'm afraid I'm either stuck or I need to convince Verizon for a comparable device not made by lg. I need great battery though so not many fit this mold.

    this will be no help for your current problem but if your gonna pay full retail your way better off going to best buy and getting your phones. there black tie protection works out to the same price as asurion or close to it . with your current situtation you would be elligible for your money back after the third replacement phone with best buy . plus reward zone members get 45 or 60 days to exchange phones . i got done dirty by verizon one to many times with there refurb bullshiite and now i wouldnt think of buying from them direct.

    My Wi-Fi disconnected when sitting in the same room as the router. Then it came back as gray and turned blue. Would not though so I had to turn it off.

    I know this is irrelevant to the issue at hand but this new router is simply amazing. Look at that Ping!

    Forget it, Verizon is sending me a Galaxy Note II. I should have it tomorrow. I got lucky though since its still an Iconic device.

    Amazing. No random disconnects or issues with the internet not loading. my RAZR HD Maxx had the issue constantly and the Note II had it a little bit.

    Thanks for the update on the Droid MAXX. My GF and I still have our Droid Razr MAXX HD phones and we also experience the WiFi problems you described. I have unlimited data so it's not as much an issue for me. But it bugs the crap out of her since she has a tiered data plan.

    I am adding lines to my account in November and will be forced to do a tiered plan. So I am considering getting the Droid MAXX. I am hoping that phone doesn't have WiFi connection issues.

    It won't. I've tested it extensively and have yet to experience a disconnect. The RAZR HD was losing connection or even keeping connection but wouldn't load constantly. I could be right next to the router with strong signal and I'd experience issues.

    I've been using the Droid Maxx for close to a month now and I can say with 100% certainty that I have not experienced one drop.
