    Dropping WIFI

    On my droid razr maxx I cannot keep my wifi connection for a distance longer than about 8 feet. I have had my phone replaced twice by Verizon, I actually bough a new router and have troubleshooted through Netgear. Is anyone else have this same issue and if so what did you do it fix it. My mac book and wireless printer both work great.

    I have been having some awful luck.( Actually 4th phone not maintaining wifi connection) I am about 15 feet away from my router with zero connection on my phone but perfect connection on my laptop.

    Make sure the setting on the router is not on auto.

    The router is about 8 days old, I had an older one about 6 years old and thought that may have been the issue. I have set the channel to 11 (from auto) and have turned to the mode up to 300. I also tried to disable the wireless security and have tried it at every type.

    I am not a mathematician but I have to believe 4 phones having the same problem out of the box is astronomically improbable.

    There has to be another factor in play. Four phones isn't incredibly bad luck, it's an external factor not yet addressed.

    It may also be your modem or your internet service provider. Unplug your modem for 30 seconds to reset it. From your PC, how strong is the signal? Depending on how much you use your PC, it may actually lose connection then reconnect without you being aware. I had the same problem. Actually bought a Wi-Fi bridge. Thought it was the phone, then thought it was problem with where I was located in the house. When the bridge didn't help, I contacted my ISP only to find out my modem went bad.

    Thinking about the house, we have a home security system system in the house which connects through a cell phone signal and that half of the house seems to have the issues on the phone. I am going to try to move the router and modem and see if that fixes the issue and if not I will get a bridge. Thanks guys

    You're not alone. Other people with Maxx's are having the same issue. See https://forums.motorola.com/posts/cc...top=120#615620 and https://forums.motorola.com/posts/2d...stop=15#615623

    It's not your router, it's the phone. I was using wifi no problem yesterday, 6/14/12, before I updated my software version last night from .173 to .181 because my gf's Maxx could not access the wifi.

    Hopefully by posting enough we'll get enough attention from Motorola and they'll fix it. Otherwise, try the workaround in the second link. It worked okay for me, but it's still much slower than the 4g LTE and the speed I was browsing yesterday on my same wifi (same everything in fact, save software vesion).
