Notsure Android TV Box 4.0 ARM Cortex A9 WiFi unstable

the title description is Android TV Box 4.0 ARM Cortex A9 WiFi HD 1080P HDMI Internet TV Box DDR II 512M 2GB+3D+Flash 10.1
I bought this product which arrived today. It looks like the android tv atv108 from visson ( same box, external appearance...etc)
When I plugged in, it picked up straight away my wifi but cannot maintain the connection, it keep cycling through:
getting IP addresses
connect (briefly)
saved status
When I click on the network to connect, nothing happens and remain in "saved" status.
Although my home network works well with my dasktop, laptop, tablet Galaxy Tab, android phones...I did tried on
different channel ( Auto-> 11 -> 1) no improvement.
I tried several disconnect, no change...
I even reset to original manufacturer .. no change

Is there an issue with poor range from the wifi hardware in the TV box? ( my Wifi router is in the next room)?
I have also an issue that it would not detect the freshly formatted SD card (FAT32).
the TV Box details ( from settings) are:
Model: MBX ICS VS-2
Android version: 4.0.3
Kernel version: 3.0
Build Nb: ICS-MBX.20120225

Development device ID: LB31-2VYA-TEAK-U

Any tips or advice available or shall I simply return to vendor (it is a guaranteed shipment)?

Thanks in advance

You might have a defective unit. Mine works good, Flash works, Google Movies work, and I'm even playing emulated games on a usb game pad.

Well, in between time, the vendor has provide me with a new firmware (4 23 3.0 firmware) and it works!
so now the details are:
model: MBX ICS VS-2 --> MBX.VISSON 2.0 Board
Android version: 4.0.3 (Unchanged)
Kernel version: 3.0 -->3.02
Build number: ICS-MBX.20120225 -->ICS-MBX.20120422

Now I just have to learn how to get the best out of it!
for example, is it possible to change the mouse cursor colour?

I am having similar issues with the updated Kernel version: 3.0 -->3.02
Build number: ICS-MBX.20120225 -->ICS-MBX.20120422

I cannot get Netflix to stream as the wifi is too slow and a little unstable.

Do you still have the contact details from the vendor where you got your update?

I bought my box from TomTop on eBay, and they are a little slow to get back to me.

Read this before upgrading:

1. Download firmware from link: Download 4-23 4.0firmware.rar from Sendspace.com - send big files the easy way
2. You will get a rar file.
3. Open rar file you will get below 7 files.
1. Put these 7 files(donít open zip file) in root your SD card, then follow below upgrading method
(1)Use a paperclip inserts to press the reset key which is at back side of the Android TV Box and hold it.
(2).Power on the Android TV Box (connect the AD adapter with device), wait for two Leds flash 3 times then release reset key.
(3). System will automatically upgrade.( Make sure power is not interrupted during the upgrading process.
(4).After process bar goes to end (Be patient, this will take several minutes),there will be some error messages on your screen, donít worry, this info. is correct. Because every device only has one unique mac address, so the upgrading cannot change it.
(5)Power off your device. And repeat (1) to (4)
(6) After process bar goes to end,there will be same message showing on your screen again.
(7) Just restart your device. You have already got the new firmware.(Check the software verison in setting-> about media player. You will see it)


Note: Do not skip step 5! Because of modifications to system files (bootloader), you have to repeat installation twice.

You mean you started upgrade procedure within Android by selecting Upgrade application and now you cannot repeat upgrade procedure?

Not a problem... Unplug your device from power, use paperclip and press reset button on back side and keep it pressed. Power on device (plug in the power cord) and wait for 2 front leds to blink 3 times. After that release reset button. 10 secs or something after that upgrade should start.

For everyone else, power off doesn't mean to push power button on your remote, it means to unplug your device from power
