    Nothing too technical here (thats why i didnt post in the 1418 finding & fixes thread), I've loaded the 10.3.0.1418 FW and while setting things up i did the stupid ''Drop it on the floor'' thing lol, I got wifi range issues now but i cant tell if its related to the 1418 fw or the stupid drop.
    It's not a Major issue, i dont get random connection drops, only range is affected, I own a big *** house and now there's some areas inhouse where wifi signal is lost, where i never had issues before.

    Anyone else got weak wifi on 1418 ?
    I'm on a Q5 BTW
    Thanks

    The Q5 is my 'trash' phone (I use it at work since its built pretty tought, but got a Q10 as primary with a cloned sim), i dont use the Q5 at home usually unless my Q10 battery's dead, so i dont plan buying accessories for the Q5.
    I'm testing the water here if others got the same issues because if its the case i wont load 1418 on my Q10 lol
    Anyway, it might be because of the drop, if so, ill wait till the Classic comes out, then ill use the Q10 a my ''trash'' phone hehehehe

    How do you like the Passport in general btw ? other than the wonderful screen ? Does it feel tough ?
    I really love the phone but the shape seems so thin and fragile , even at home I'm welding stuff, do mechanics and such so paper phones wont last here loll, let me know

    I can say, on my Z10-STL100-2 on 10.3.0.1418 I do have a weaker 5Ghz band signal however 2.4Ghz is fine. No drops, WIFI is speedy it's just weird seeing one or two grey bars on the WIFI signal.

    If you have a big assed house and your using 5Ghz the range is not great and ideally needs to be in the vicinity of the router but 2.4Ghz should be fine.

    It's unlikely to be because of the drop, if that was the case we would all be returning our phones claiming shoddy hardware lol.

    I'm already on 2.4ghz band, signal drop happens where i usualy had low signal, but still, had signal loll, i might blame it on the drop.
    this poor Q5 went throught a lot of heavy crashes and survived, last drop was very light so i'm surprised about the failure, but still, possible.
    I ''myself'' had a few big crashes on motorcycles and got out of em' without any major injuries, but the most ''light crash'' i've ever had got me feeling like a 90 years old man when it rains lol
    That poor Q5 and i must be soulmates hahaha

    I got wifi problems too on 1418. First few hours it works fine, after that my connection goes from like 100% to 2% (still connected sometimes but no wifi speed). Going back to 1154 and hope that it's fixed with loading 1154.

    Is this related to the wifi issue reported in another thread in another CB forum where wifi loses connection and fails to acquire an IP, work around is to turn off data services...then wifi comes up fine.

    Probably not if that is the fix. I tried everything, even turning off data services. By the way, the phone still says I have a connection, just with 0 strength bars and sometimes it just says I'm on 3g, even though I'm connected to wifi.

    Yeah I did, even tried radio 1131. Didn't fix my problem. But some others say their wifi is good, so you can try. I loaded OS 1154 because of the wifi. 1154 is exactly the same for me but with working wifi.

    That would probably be the best choice if you have wifi problems.

    Same thing here. Before the update my Passport was better than my Z30 as far as sensitivity is concerned (it worked pretty well in 5GHz). Now is the opposite. Clearly, there is a bug in the new software version.

    On .1418 on my Z30 I get the bug where the saved wifi networks turn Enable Connections off. Then they refuse to save when I turn them back on.

    Try a SIC wipe, then use the autoloader. There could be corrupt settings left behind.
