    I know some people have had issues with wifi cutting out after they upgraded to jellybean, well I may have found a fix.

    Go to system settings

    Click on wifi to the far left to get to the wifi screen

    Hit the menu button and hit advanced

    Uncheck the box that says avoid poor connections.

    The problem usually happens when you have low wifi signal, so it disconnects and then reconnects because it is right on the edge of good signal and poor signal. It has fixed my issues and hopefully it will work for you also.

    After JB update, lost WIFI. It just says connecting.... never connects. Have tried several different WIFI sites to no avail.
    Any more ideas? I wiped cache, did factory reset. Nothing helps.

    Well if you can't connect to it in the first place, then this fix has nothing to do with your issue.

    Try unplugging your router for 30 secs, make sure your password is entered right.

    Also what encryption are you using and how old is the router.

    Tried resetting the modem/router (ACTIONTEC GT724WG on TDS), unplugged, etc. Modem is only 2 years old.
    Using WPA/WPA2. I went to the Verizon store and it connected no problems. Still won't connect at home or work.

    Might have too many devices on your router, most only support five on wireless at a time. (That's why I have two routers @ my house...lol)
