yes this has happened to me also a few times, but for me I just plug in Ethernet cable for a bit then unplug cable and wifi kicks right in and I'm good to go till the next time....dill

Thumbs down
I have daily wifi drops... 50% of the time going to Settings/Networking and doing a rescan fixes it - 50% I must reboot the FTV. I have an ASUS AC68U with Merlin firmware and the signal strength is always "very good". I've tried both 2.4 & 5.0 GHz.

anyone have a fix for this?

I have had my Amazon Fire TV since last Christmas and no issues until this last update was done. Now Wifi as well as Ethernet connections will drop and at first I thought it was Comcast and each time I logged into my account on my Samsung and ran the connection test, it was always fine, so I would retry FTV and it worked again. So I figured must have been a hickup. Well now it is doing it all the time so I am thinking it is the Fire TV unit. The light on front will blink Amber when the drops happen.

I recently got a fire stick. It has lost the WiFi connection twice, at which time the video I am watching is frozen to a blank screen with the circular "in progress" icon showing. I found that disconnecting and reconnecting the usb power plug into the fire stick gets it rebooted with the WiFi connection 're established. This seems to be a problem many fire s tick users encounter.
