I've been having issues connecting to my wifi. It will connect, then after a few seconds drop signal, then reconnect, etc... all in a more or less non stop action.

The SSID is not broadcast, it's an N only 5ghz signal, and I have MAC filtering (permit only) enabled.

My girlfriend's M7 connects without issue.

I don't know if it's the phone, my router, or Sprint Connection optimizer? This is extremely frustrating, any help would be appreciated.

Turn off Sprint Connection Optimizer and also Settings/WiFi/Menu/Advanced/ uncheck Wi-Fi optimization.

Looks like it was the Wi-Fi Optimization. After unchecking that, the connection stabilized.

Thank you!
