    Is there any way of resolving this ? It constantly says "Turning on WiFi".
    I checked Advanced settings and it says MAC Address unavailable and IP Address unavailable.

    :angry:


    Thanks
    Joe

    This is simple, but did you try a reboot?

    I rebooted several times. Did a battery pull. I was rooted when it started, so I went back to stock and still have the same problem.
    VZW sent me a new refurb Gnex and now that 4g keeps dropping on that one, but Id prefer to have my orig Gnex, thats why I'm hoping for a fix.

    Have you tried "Forgetting" whatever network you're trying to connect to?

    I can't get that far. My device is showing no MAC address, so all of my settings are grayed out. It has nothing to do with wifi settings.

    And you went back to stock and factory reset?

    I had a replacement nexus come in and the 4G kept dropping on it. You'd think they'd have gotten this resolved only 9 months after release, but evidently not. Unless the refurbs we're getting are all the crap phones that people returned back in March.
