    After my phone updated to jelly bean 4.3 I get lots of internet is unstable messages. On WiFi. I can run a speed test and my numbers are way off.
    I can do the same speed test with my Windows tablet and my hp laptop and my speed numbers are normal about 15 mbps. My phone shows 3to 4 mbps. Anyone seen this

    Hiya jeep!
    I would assume you are not rooted? Or were you rooted and took the OTA to 4.3?

    Interesting...because I have had the same exact thing happened. I was rooted. Then I took (not on purpose) the 4.3 update. I am now back to being rooted but I am still getting the internet unstable notifications.

    I'm not rooted, and I get this once in a while, but my connection is fine during the message so I'm not sure why it happens. Especially when I'm a few feet from my router.

    4.3
    settings
    wifi
    advanced
    auto network switch

    toggle the check box, may need to restart in between

    no more disconnects in favour of phone data connection

    Enjoy!

    I am afraid that this is something that has cropped up since JB 4.3 and hasn't happened to me before.

    I had this also intermittently with various scenarios, i.e. stock ROM, stock kernel, custom ROM, stock kernel, custom ROM, custom kernel, all scenarios for two Samsung devices a Note 2 and an S3.

    Currently I don't seem to have this problem, but previously the setting referred to above was always unchecked!

    i have gotten the same notification too since i updated last week to 4.3 and it's very frustrating since i'm just 20 feet from my router! lol i followed the above steps mentioned by oldnick and un-checked the auto networks box and restarted my phone...will see how this works. also i was told my router, which is 2 years old, may need to be updated as well so i'll check that once i get home.

    highjakker...your router has nothing to do with it....I promise the above few posters and me are not stealing your internet and getting the same "unstable alert" :)
