Wi-fi distance issues

Ive recently been experiencing distance issues when connecting to wi-fi, meaning I have to be within 10-15 ft. for it to connect and work. When I fist got the phone at Christmas time the Wi-fi worked all over our two story house, but not anymore...


I didnt start having this issue till about 2 months ago, but now its just getting frustrating. At first I thought it was our router, going bad yet every other wifi device worked fine, but I replaced the router anyway...and im still having the problem. Recently I wiped my phone clean thinking it could be a bad app i downloaded but that didnt help either. Now im out of ideas, this happen to anybody else?


Im thinking of downgrading the OS and see if that makes a difference, Ill update this if it helps.

Re: Wi-fi distance issues

Downgrading or upgrading your OS is never a bad idea when all else fails.
