1. Restarted modem and router, same result.

3. Forget wifi network, and reconnect, same result.
4. Almost give up with frustration.
5. Turn off phone and turn it back on, then finally the speed back to normal.
So at least on my phone, i think i need to restart my phone every other day to prevent the drop on wifi speed, but still need to see if it happens again in the next few days.
I stumbled upon something today. Disable "WiFi optimization" (WiFi->Advanced). Some say it'll stop Android from "pinging" the router every couple of seconds. I disabled it a couple of hours ago, but my WiFi issue creeps up on me, so i'll have to wait and see if it solves my problem. Also, i read that disabling the "n" (in b/g/n) (local speed over 54Mbps) helps too. I haven't disabled that yet, but i still find it funny that my 4 year old laptop isn't having any issues with WiFi. I was on 4.4.2 (GPe ROM) earlier today and it was still the same, so it can't be software, and i refuse to believe that it's a hardware issue (since turning WiFi off and on speeds it up again), so it has to be my router or some crappy Android WiFi drivers.
I can of course set it to turn WiFi off when i turn the screen off, and that'll "refresh" the connection every time i use it, but then i'll have to wait a couple of seconds for it to connect every time i turn the screen on
I ain't got time for dat!
