Default [Q] Wifi issue with CM11

Hi everyone, I'm new on XDA
I currently have a ville (S4) with the latest snapshot of CM11 (M6) and I'm experiencing some issues with wifi signal:

When i connect to my router wifi works flawlessly, but after some hours it drops and seems like it can't reach any signal, neither from other router (my neighbours). If i reboot it, than it starts to work again.
This happens on any CM I've tried (10.1, 10.2, 11 various) and also on Pacman Rom but not with stock or sense based ROMs.

Is there anyone who has ever had this kind of issue or better a solution? Any help would be very appreciated

HBoot: 2.15
TWRP 2.7
ROM: CM11 (M6)
Radio: 1.20 (the one that comes with 2.16 package seen on MaximusHD install package)
SuperCID

PS: Sorry for my bad English, I'm italian...

I've experienced the same thing and it seems to be a common problem on this device outside of stock,
wifi will be working fine but then randomly drop all of a sudden and won't show any networks until you restart the phone. It will do it again after a little while from the restart. I came across a solution to this after trying so many different things, give it a shot.

Let me know if it works for you and/or if you need help.

Good luck

You might first want to try flashing a different radio, I've had nothing but bad luck with 1.20 on both sense and cm... random boot loops, gsm signal drops, etc...

Give this a read,


RADIO 1.35a.32.45.27, WCNSS, ADSP

Q. Why is this radio recommended?

A. This radio has been proved better then the 1.20 radio by some of the users of One S and enables HSPA in 4.3 Sense based Roms like liberty.

Thank you very muck! I've just falshed the 1.35a radio and all what comes with that and now it seems to have no issue at all [emoji2] I'll keep testing for some days and I'll post here my results.

Hello,

I am quite new here and don't have permission to post in development section, but this topic seems to fit.

I am running CM11 nightlies with good success (very few reboots) since February. With all nightlies since June 14, WiFi cannot be activated anymore.

Some other users seem to have the same problem, some don't. I usually do "dirty" flashes with CM Update, but clean flashes don't help.

I can't find information about greater WiFi changes in log files. Any ideas?

Greetings from Germany

Matthias

Found the answer. Had to reflash boot.img because my One S is S-On. Now WiFi works as usual.

Ok, after more than 20 days, I can say that the new radio (1.35a) posted by @nSavage works better with WiFi on my One S.
Again, thank you very much! [emoji2]
