Hello,

 

anyone else have this problem on 2.1.0.1032?

 

Don't think a restart helps

Yeah, same issue here. Have removed profile, restarted and recreated. Sometimes it works for a few minutes or hours?? Nothing else has changed other than the OS upgrade and prior WIFI was working great.

Cheers

Hi, different routers drop out different times. Roaming service at university drops out frequently but randomly so now for example today I haven't had any problems. At home also drops out but much less frequently and allows me to video chat with people.

I disabled WMM on my router and restarted and so far so good as today I had no luck until making that chnage?

You might want to change the channel the router uses to be in the range 3-9.  You could also try restricting the protocols used to just b/g. These were the suggestions I got from the support desk. Good luck. The playbook seems very sensitive to router configuration.
