Lumia 950 Wifi connection issues

MY Lumia 950 will not keep or reacquire Wifi signals. It will randomly drop the wifi connection and I have to reboot the phone in order for it to reacquire.  If I try to just manually connect to the wifi it will just continue to search and not find anything. Once I reboot the phone it will connect with no problem.  Also, when I return from being away from the wifi signal it will not usually reconnect.  I need to reboot the device.  I am chewing through my data plan because the phone is not finding and connecting to wifi regularly.  I have had to reboot already once this morning in order to stay connected to wifi.

I would really like a solution.  I have rebooted my router, but also have noticed it not finding wifi when I have been elsewhere.


That sounds promising for you users of the L950 series! Good luck!

Unfortunately, it took less than 5 hours on my L650 after installing the .318 update until my WiFi connection got lost again, and I had to restart the phone. Definitely no improvement of the situation!

Please keep us informed!

My only tip is disable N network and let access point to work with b/g protocol. Work for me to keep connection stable .but with the low throughput issue.
