Thumbs up Solved: Samsung Note 2 Wifi problem "Unstable WiFi connection"

Problem:
Since Android 4.3 update, on Version Samsung Note 2 I continued to get WiFi connection error "Unstable WiFi connection". Also, WiFi internet speed was noticebly low.

I cleared dilvik cache, rebooted, disconnected and reconfigured WiFi - none of which helped. In fact, the problem is not with the phone or operating system. The problem was in my the WiFi network channel. My Motorola router had automatically used channel 1 which was also used by another 4 networks in the the neighborhood.

Solution:
Install WiFi Analyzer on your phone. Find out a channel with the least interference.
Reconfigure your WiFi network to use that channel. I have had no WiFi errors since then.

Good luck.

Looks like just me and one other in the area on "my" channel now..... VERY noticible improvement !!

Use your router settings. Some are Web bases depending on your provider. My unit is a "2wire". I did a Google search on how to change "2wire router settings"......how to and link popped right up. I then changed the channel with my computer....it was pretty easy.
