    Since switching from the S3 to the Note 3 I have noticed when connected to WiFi in many areas I get a message saying the connection is unstable and it disconnects. Even when the signal says very strong. It's done it everywhere that I used to connect except for home.
    Why is this happening and how can I make it stop?

    This. You can do it by going to wifi, advanced, and unchecking the boxes.

    Really, I don't think it's the note 3, but Android 4.3...my new nexus would do the same things when it was updated to 4.3, especially when using public wifi..4.3 also has some touchscreen issues like you have to touch things several times or you would hit one thing and it picked another....they fixed it with a small update....Sometimes having the latest software isn't always the greatest

    I disabled the AT&T WiFi app and installed the WiFi connection app suggested. No change. I will try the boxes in the advanced settings and see if that does the trick.
