Default WiFi sometimes not working and requires reboot

I just updated to Android 4.4 on my Nexus 4 yesterday. I have been having problem with the WIFI. Sometimes, the wifi won't turn on unless I reboot the phone. I wonder what might be wrong with it. thanks

Getting exactly the same thing. Battery widget reborn turns off my WiFi at sleep hours so I turn on my screen in the morning to sometimes find WiFi will not turn on. It's permanently stuck on "turning on WiFi..." in the WiFi settings page.

Clean factory image install too.

How old is your router and is it 2.4Ghz or 5Ghtz? Go to Wifi and select the settings (3 dots) and then choose either 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz, don't leave it at auto. I had similar problem and solved it by selected the frequency that my router supports at 2.4GHz

My router is 2.4GHz but didn't think it mattered? The WiFi module on the phone won't start sometimes since flashing 4.4, and therefore doesn't see the 8 or so WiFi networks around me.
