I have a rooted Nexus5 which aint running any custom rom. I have noticed that my wifi drops . the icon shows active on the status bar but there is no data transfer.
i thought it could be one of the xposed modules which might be interfering so i unrooted my phone and put it back to stock. The wifi signals were fine for a day or so and i am now facing the same problem again.

I downloaded the Wifi Analyser app from the play store to check if there is any interference from other routers in the vicinity. I have changed the channels multiple times but to no avail. At the same time my laptop & desktop connects fine to the router.

I am currently running stock 4.4.2 build # KOT49H

Try an app called "Root- Push Notifications Fixer". There are two versions one that requires a rooted device and one that does not I use the rooted one and off hand cannot remember the difference. Below is the playstore link:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ushfixer&hl=en

This app resolved a WiFi issue I was having. I originally blamed my router/device but it was neither. I use it on both my Nexus 5 and 10. Read the app description for the issue it addresses.

Good luck.

I had something similar on my Nexus 5. The wifi speed would drop dramatically at random and it looked like web pages had stopped loading. My connection is 25Mb but the N5 would drop to 1-2Mb. I'd then have to turn wifi off and on to get the speed back up.

After searching around for the same issue a few people suggested turning off mobile data while using wifi. After doing this the speed has never dropped. I've since set up a Tasker profile to turn mobile data off when connected to wifi and back on when wifi is out of range/off.

Might be worth a try.

Me, I've tried everything and nothing helped at all. App Wi-Fi Analyzer tells me no signal. Tried a few kernels also. Waiting for rc of cyanogenmod to see if anything will change.

guys , looks like i have finally sorted the problem. I called my ISP and he suggested that it could be a looping issue with the router. He advised a hard reset which i have done now. i can now connect to wifi with my phones
