    I was having issues with wi-if too, so much so that I wouldn't get emails. Web pages would not load at times, and images wouldn't come through. I just disabled IPv6 and I test sent an email to myself from another device. Came through instantly.

    However, this is an issue with the phone and how it connects. I can't have everyone and every place I go that I use wi-if disable IPv6.
    Yeah ... that's the part that's going to suck. But from what I understand Comcast/XFinity and Cablevision don't activate the IPv6 on commercial modems - so unless we're in someone's house that hasn't disabled IPv6, I doubt this will be an issue for us as I didn't have problems at Starbucks, the office, Dr.'s Office, and Barnes & Noble.

    .... and at a friends house, we can look like Stars when we disable their IPv6 and all their devices speed up ;- )

    I'm having the same issue with my LG V10. The internet signal from my router is just Good compared to all the other devices in my house including 4 different smartphones who have the signal Very Strong from it. The download speed data is half and the upload data nonexistent. My carrier signal is weak in the house hence I'm relying on Wi-Fi to upload pictures attached to a text and so on. It takes forever to upload a picture. I have Charter and pay big money for top speed. My previous phone was a Note 3 smoking. Me think it's a little unprofessional from LG to release a phone a with such problems. Internet connectivity and speed is what most buyers look at. Why should I have to wait for a firmware update that might reach me 9 months from now.... from my carrier? Why am I dealing with these problems after I paid full price for the phone? This is highly frustrating. What if is not a firmware problem and is a hardware one, like the Wi-Fi antenna inside the phone or who knows. I was super happy with my Note 3 until LG V10 got in the way, and the blame is on me because I bought it. I would like some answers from LG.

    I disabled IPv6 on my router, reseted phone and router, removed battery, SIM card, removed all the applications....you name it. No luck, same non-existent upload speed and half of download speed versus what I pay for. Yeah, I like the camera on it. Awesome.

    I blame the design of this phone. It appears to have single band antennas and the backplate functions as an antenna as well.

    Despite having multiple antennas they aren't up to snuff and walking 20 feet from my router causes a 40db change in signal. Absolutely ridiculous.

    I've been thinking of going back to factory settings since the whole wifi problem wasn't really a problem until the marshmallow update. BUT - if you go back to factory settings, how do you get the Marshmallow update back (if you want it - which I'm not so sure of).

    Would really appreciate it if you could tell me how I would get Marshmallow back.

    Thanks.

    I agree. But my experience with Android phones, covering at least 5 years, is that they're often buggy in some major way and the owner has to "live with it". If this $600 purchase were for something else, there would either be a class action suit or replacements made available. I love and respect the freedom with Android but I'm getting tired. I want to do other things with my life.
