Default Bad wifi

Keep getting wifi connection disabled because connection is slow, yet it says signal strength is excellent and I'm getting 29mbps down on speed test .

the wifi issues on this phone are unreal! my phone constantly looses the wifi connection. but the kicker is it doesn't tell me it just stops and there is no connection so im not getting any messages and I don't know until I look at the phone.

and then it occasionally literally refuses to turn on the wifi radio, its only happened twice... it says turning on wifi and stays like that. I was curious so I didn't touch the phone and reset the router.. the phone then turns on the wifi radio and attempts to connect to the network of course it gets stuck obtaining the ip address (another issue)

I restart the wifi on the phone and it connects no problem. very strange issues that ruin an other wise perfect phone
