Angry [WIFI FIX UPDATED] Nexus 4 Wireless solution/fix!

Hello!
Do you have problems during streaming Youtube videos?
Do you notice a very slow connection with your Nexus 4?
Do you notice that your other clients (like notebook, other smarthones, pc, etc etc) are connecting very well with the same router's settings?
Good, the problems are not inside the router's settings. The real issue is neither into the Nexus 4's Qualcomm WiFi adapter.
The issue is only in a configuration file named WCNSS_qcom_cfg.ini.

You have only to flash the zip file through recovery.
If you don't notice the difference, if this zip file is not helping you, please write here and you can always flash the stock/default settings.
Let me know the result! With my settings I solved my issues!
Regards,

kalo86

Yea, changes you made would be nice.
Does this also (finally) fix the inglorious "no Push Notification while screen is off"-Bug?

People I made a simple thing: I extracted the WCNSS_qcom_cfg.ini from an official LG Optimus G Rom (a device which shares the same hardware of our Nexus 4) and this file seems to work fine.
I did not test if this workaround fixes the missing notifications bug when the screen is off.

Battery life will drop like a rock with this. It won't let your phone sleep while you're on WiFi. Actually knew of this before but the battery life... Stopped using this when Prima Drivers were released but this is a GREAT workaround if you don't want the ARP issues caused by Prima Drivers. Another option is to set your router's beacon scanning to 10ms or less
Performance above all.

Maybe I was not so clear.
I did NOT edited

from "gEnableBmps=1"
to "gEnableBmps=0"

but I simply adopted another ini file which is going very good and the battery life is the same like the stock ini file.

You should then remove that part from the Original Post. It confuses people. Not here to attack your thread or anything. I just misunderstood stuff

Yes, I'm sorry, I just removed that part because may confuse people.
Anyway I am getting the same performance of my notebook connected at the same wifi network.
Now I can watch videos without problems

Sadly,fell into a bootloop spiral after flashing this..
I hope it's my fault ( my phone's configuration fault)
Can someone else give feedback?
Thanks anyway!!

EDIT: Tried this a second time and all went well.
I'll send feedback later on.
Thank you!
