Footmouth Note 10.1 keeps dropping wifi

My Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 keeps dropping wifi at home. I have a Talk talk router. Some say change to a static ip address. Can you do that with the Note 10.1. Any other ideas?

I've had my Note 10.1 a week and am getting frustrated with the same problem. I'm using a Billion 770, 'N' enabled, with a second AP also in the house. I've checked signal strength, available bandwidth, also moved channels. Still does it sometimes, but not always. Can't beleive a static IP will make any difference.


I have an iphone, BB and two laptops in the house, they don't do it.

I too have this issue. Both my note 10.1 and note 2 seem to have poor wifi reception. It's a good thing I have excellent LTE coverage for my phone. In my case it is not dropping the connection. It just freezes every now and then.

Hmmmm...thankfully, I have not had this problem. It doesn't seem like you should have to use a third party app to maintain wifi signal in your home. But, whatever works, I guess.
