Default WiFi Error

Hello
I periodically have been receiving an error when attempting to simply turn on wi-fi. When I attempt to check the turn on wi-fi box it does not search any available connections, just tries to turn on and simply states "error". This is pretty cryptic and gives no indication of what the problem might be. Subsequently, All of a sudden the wi-fi will start working again. It has become frustrating.

Anyone experienced this and have any solution to the issue? (apologies if this has been posted already)

Thanks in advance

I do get an error like that if I try to use the browser or an internet enabled app too quickly after turning Wifi on, before it's had a chance to be given an IP address. It could be that you have an app that is polling very often and the attempt disrupts the Wifi handshake with your DHCP device.
