[Q]nexus 5 cant find wifi

Hey guys!
So I have a problem with my nexus 5.
Lately it seems as if it does not find "new" wifi connections... It connects to the one it already has saved.
If I click scan no wifi networks appear even though there are many(my pc and other phones get good signal)
I also get the notification saying "There are networks available" but when i touch it no networks appear...
Any ideas?
Cheers!

EDIT: I just tried adding the SSID and it connected fine and works great.... So the problem is the actual scanning...

You say that it happens "lately". So it worked previously? Anything change right before the problem arose? What is your phone's configuration, i.e., ROM, kernel, Xposed, runtime, etc. Have you rebooted the router? (I know, your other devices see all networks, but, what works for one may not for another)

I would suggest that the router you are connecting to is set to not broadcast the SId - simple (but not too effective) security measure.

Same problem here! I got my N5 yesterday and wifi was perfectly connecting to my router. The I unlocked the bootloader and root by using WugFresh's Nexus Root Toolkit and phone is not detecting anymore my wifi network. Phone wifi works since I see the others wifi around but not mine!
I did the following but problem still present:
- powered off the router
- changed SSID on router setup
- removed security on router setup
- add manually the wifi into Nexus 5

I have no clue on what I can do more....pls help!

EDIT: solved: I noticed my router was set on specific channels for wifi, then I modified to AUTO

If i remember correctly, Nexus 5 version 4.4 had issues connecting to WIFI channel greater than 10.
I had this issue also.

Reflash with your current kernel
