Default [Q] WiFi unstable stock rom; CM11 possible cure?

My AT&T S4's wifi connection has become basically useless. Both at home and at work it frequently drops out and says the connection is unstable. At home, this happens when I'm in the same room as the router. These symptoms started happening after the OTA updates, but seem to have gotten continually worse. I've tried the usual settings changes to no avail.

Is there any reason to believe that putting a custom rom on my S4 will solve the wifi stability issue? If so, I'd happily give it a shot before I completely give up and get a new phone. And, I've had the hardest time trying to figure which guide to use to install a custom rom. I have a US AT&T SGH i337 that is running 4.4.2, and the Baseband version is I337UCUFNC1, Kernal version 3.4.0-1125940. I rooted my s4 using towelroot.

Thanks for the help, hoping I can fix my S4 and keep it...

If it were me I'd flash the nb1 tar file and see if I had the same Wi-Fi issue. You might have a hardware issue. If everything worked then I'd take the ota to nc1. If you have a problem now it's probably the modem image.

Use the rootable nb1 tar file, it's rootable with towelroot.

Flashing the tar in Odin will wipe your device so make sure you backup first.
