Nexus 7 internet connection drops frequently
I bought Nexus 7 (2012 Wi-Fi only model) a couple of weeks back. I had the option to update the OS to 4.3 and I did so soon after. Haven't rooted the device.
I have been experiencing issue with Nexus connecting to my broadband internet connection. Connection keeps dropping every now and then. I get the "connection timed out" error message. The wifi indicator at the top remains in blue color and sometimes goes to grey. I'm guessing the black symbol over the blue wifi signal indicator represents the data transfer. That symbol keeps toggling.
The Wi-Fi signal strength is strong and I'm pretty sure that's not the issue. My other devices, dell laptop and iPod Touch work fine with the same connection. I tried Internet sharing on my phone which has a 3G connection and connected my Nexus to that wifi hotspot, and it works fine! The problem is when I connect to my broadband connection.
I have done my part of searching on this topic and have tried some things like, the Wifi Fixer app, meddling with the modem settings like with the IP address, DNS; nothing helped.
Any suggestion/help would be appreciated.
