Was it this you turned off? I've had it off since the beginning. I used to get the wifi unstable notification right out the box. But I shut this off. Go to settings, click wifi, hit menu key next to home button, advance, turn things off until you get it to stop. I also turned off auto switching. Which I think that's the problem if you ask me. Because it would pop up then auto switch off wifi because it was unstable. It will still switch back and forth when you leave house but it just won't switch because it thinks it's bad.

How did you change the background behind the settings menu and how did you get that 4G icon? Thanks

I'm on galaxymans theme. It's pretty nice. Keyboard and all. Here's the link.

Edit: By the way, I flashed it over stock note 3 touchwiz.

I turned on this dumb app from at&t about 2 months ago and the stupid unstable wifi has never returned! The app actually works okay..... I haven't noticed any unusual battery drain. I have it set to my spots only. Hope this helps!

So I turned off that app even after I updated to 4.4.2. I am still having the issue. Anyone ever find a fix for this? It's pretty annoying.

I bought a new router. Haven't had that problem since.

Yeah, that may be my problem. It doesn't happen with any other devices though but maybe they just don't play well.

I have that problem with the newest Comcast modem, the D-Link media router, at work and 2 AT&T hotspots and 2 public wifis in the neighbourhood. I think it's the phone. It's been brought up in the AT&T forums and some people suggested replacing it from AT&T after all measures failed.
I just learned to live with it
