It just stops working for no apparent reason and the signal indicator fluctuates wildly. Amazingly the LTE signal is very strong and reliable, guess I'll be relying on that over wifi which just seems wrong.

If I sit in front of my router it works great but if I move a little out of the way it just doesn't work. This sucks, because otherwise I'm loving the phone.

I was curious about this too. Are you on AT&T or Rogers? I know many are reporting issues with Wireless N routers.

Supposedly it will be fixed in a firmware update.

Same here, my connection randomly drops. I just turn wifi off and on and it comes back on.

What kind of routers are you guys using? I read its doing this with N routers and not B or G routers.

I have a netgear, couple years old. Not sure what type though.

In the WiFi settings, under the menu, "WiFi Network Bands", select "2.4 GHz only". That improved the wifi quality significantly for me.

I can confirm that switching to "2.4 GHZ only" improved the stability for myself as well. This will have to do until HTC releases a fix.

Been using mine for about 2 hours and no WiFi issues yet. Router is an apple time capsule.

Funny literally 5 seconds after I sent that message my WiFi died and then my phone spontaneously rebooted. Wonderful.
