Dear XDA members.
I purchased my D820 Nexus 5 a couple of days ago, connected to my home router to set things up but then I noticed something, the device is connected to the router in every single room in the house with at least a fair-strength connection but I actually don't have Internet access unless I'm about 6-10 ft away from the router which is a bother.

Things I tried:
-Restarted router
-Connected to router using other devices
-Edited router settings flipping between 802.11 b/g/n bands
-Changed security type and encryption
-Used a static IP connection instead of a DHCP
-Installed two different roms to test the connection (CM11, Mahdi)
-Installed Wifi analyzer,apk to check surrounding traffic (to avoid wireless interference) and then changed router channel to a suitable one.

I have searched loads of websites and haven't found any working solutions, I'm so desperate for help.
Sorry for writing a long thread and thanks in advance.

Frogi.

In your phone's advanced WiFi settings there is the option to choose between 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz try those. If that doesn't work trying flipping the mobile data switch off and see if that helps.
