I am literally sitting just 1 feet away from mt wifi router and on my moto G the wifi connectivity icon show 2/4 ticks that represent connectivity strength. I move into the next room and the connection drops. My phone is not rooted and its a month old. This has been happening since the past 2 days, it was working fine before. Thanks for help.

hmm
This may be happening due to low frequency of wifi router you must check ur router's setting for the frequency rate..
Are u using any special cover or anything on your phone this may reduce the signal strength ..

You may check your phone in another wi-fi signal. If your phone works well, then the problem is in your wi-fi device.

I tried it with 3 different routers and the connection is lost at a distance of 4 mts without any obstacles in between. Also got my hands on a friend's moto g and his wifi works as expected. So i guess the problem is with my wifi itself.
