    I can't help because I'm having the same issue

    Switched from SS4.9 yesterday and love the ROM, but can't stay connected to my home WIFI.

    Finally got connected after adding my phone to my router, but then again last night it stopped working. It says I'm connected, but I don't have any internet access.

    And my wife's phone isn't having any issues, so I know it isn't the router.

    Thanks for any help out there!

    depending on your phone model, it very well could be the kernel

    I'd say make a backup and give it a go. The kernel would DEF affect it though.

    Chevy's ulv1.1GHz is the kernel i was using when I first started to have my WiFi problems with UD 2.4. I tried reinistalling UD and no luck, then installed the LFY slv1.1GHz kernel with the same results. I'm thinking a full wipe is in order for me because the whole uncheck and then recheck wifi doesn't do a thing.

    Edit: Literally just looked at my phone, and it's connected to WiFi after two days of not being able to connect at all... wtffffffffffffffff x.x

    Edit 2: Something's funky... I rebooted the phone as a test to see if WiFi would still work and it refused to connect. I unchecked and rechecked WiFi and now it's working. I have it hooked up to the charger and it's set not to disconnect from WiFi when plugged in, so im curious as to if it will be able to regain the connection when unplugged. I'm scared to try now that it's currently working, lol.

    Do you think it's strange that both our WiFi connections started working at the same time? Mine hadn't been working the past two days after working forever before that. Now it seems to be working again... so weird!

    What is going on with this? That's really strange that a few of us having WiFi problems would all of a sudden have our WiFi working again... how is that possible? (If it is at all related and not just a coincidence)

    Some kernels and or roms will try to automatically switch to 3g if your wi-did is weak or non existent. Personally I think they work against each other. Just for kicks, try to hang near a good wi-fi connection for a while and see what happens

    I'm wondering if you have weak signals to your routers where you are

    I was thinking that too, but i then experimented at work and at home by holding my phone literally a foot away from the wireless router and tried to connect to the WiFi, only to have the same exact problem.
