Hi every place I connect to with wifi I never get a stable connection the wifi connects when sat close or next to the hub and as soon as I go away about 1 metre I lose the connection or it is very poor . Could this be a issue with the modem on the phone or is there a menu to get it boosted in any way . I'm on 4.2.2. Rooted Mdc Mf9


Also I would like to know that if I use the temporary unroot on superuser and then update the ota system update on the phone will this work ? To get the latest update .

Sorry everyone is not responding to you immediately. They must have forgotten that they're here to answer your questions.
You say you're on MDC with MF 9. I'm just guessing MDC is your baseband NM9 night is the ROM.
Are you by chance on a different carrier?
If you really want the latest your best bet is Odin NAE tar.
Or at least update the modem to nae. Check the development section for the firmware for that.

hi thanks for the reply i am currently in the uk not in the states and my provider is EE and the phone is unlocked to accept ant sim and rooted, baseband is MDC and the rom I believe is MF9, as in my previous post its the wifi issues that are causing the problem here and also constant drop out of signal so would you recommend that i move over to NAE also will i lose root ??

If you just update the Modem/Firmware you won't lose root but I can't say for sure if you'll have carrier issues.
Have you tried updating your PRL?

Preferred Roaming List.

Settings>System Updates>Update PRL

But really, you might need to spend a lot more time reading through the threads to get a handle on how your phone works and what and how to do things. [like the above mentioned updating modem/firmwares]. OR you'll likely kill your device in one way or another.
