Default Wifi chip going out?

I am on S3Rx 3.0 and have never had problems. Today, I noticed my WiFi keeps connecting and disconnecting randomly. All the other devices in the house are fine. Could this signal a problem with my chip? Any insight is appreciated.

I'm curious about this as well. This week, my wifi dropped out seemingly permanently. When I try to enable Wifi, it just sits. When I go back to settings it's always off. Rebooting doesn't help. I tried safe mode, I tried reflashing. I'll probably try a new ROM today just to see if a fresh start helps, but I was wondering if people were experiencing hardware issues with the chip. It looks like my bluetooth still works, though.

Which kernel are you using and are you using any xposed modules? It would be a really good idea to post this exact statement in the S3Rx thread, you will likely get more help.

I'm using stock kernel. Xposed modules are: all notifications expanded, boot manager, bump unlimiter, disable full battery alert, disable critical battery shutdown, greenify. Only reason I didn't post in the thread is because I don't feel its ROM related. I've been running the ROM with no problems for close to a month and this started yesterday without me making any changes.
