    Just got off the phone with AT&T. There is an issue with the jelly bean update that causes your wifi to turn itself off after about 2 minutes into a new connection. When I called about 2:00 pm pst, they told me they were just beginning to get calls about this. The only way to resolve the issue is to do a hard system re-boot. Make sure you back up your music and photos prior. This does take care of the problem.

    Wow. It almost sounds like the original Note and GPS. Some had it really bad where they needed to have their Notes replaced. This happened to a small percentage of users, but out of that small group there were severe cases. It looks like the update might have exposed some hardware/software compatibility issue that was not present on the device before. All it took was a software update to expose the flaw. Unfortunately no one will know until this thing rears its ugly head through it.

    My wifi works great at home, but now won't connect at work. Updated on Thursday and everything was fine until Sunday. Just did a factory reset last week and do not really want to do another. :mad:

    FYI, I am not sure if this would be a similar issue, but with iPads/iPhones at my last job, we switched over to some new WAPs that supported wifi-N and it was causing the connections to drop a lot on the devices. We had two brands of WAPs and both were doing the same. So after talking to multiple vendors which has seen this, we turned off N and only used the other frequencies. And once we did that, no more issues from any device and we had solid fast connections.

    I have a R6300 (the newest Netgear router) and don't have any issues on N.
