    10.3.2.x has improved slightly but is still bad.

    Guys cut some slack to Conite!! Not that he is involved in OS development. If he never faced any problem with WiFi then many many others haven't either. The gripe is against Blackberry developers so your ire should be directed at them. I have raised the issue on BB support forums and Blackberry India do not offer any log submission for investigation.
    For the record I am not happy with WiFi and Radio reception since 10.3.2 either, on my 2339 leak it was so bad that I had side-load radio 859 to have a battery that lasted me a whole day plus. Earlier on I was happy camper with nearly 2 days worth battery life on my Passport.
    Running earlier 10.2.1xx I was using an old Dlink Wifi router with single 3db omni directional antenna and never had a problem with Wifi even on 3rd floor of my concrete walled house. Around that time I became a leak fiend, loaded latest leak and in quest for a better signal signal and also changed my WIFi to a TP Link 5db double antenna. Now I struggle with WiFi even on second floor with settings fixed at 2.4 Mhz for a constant signal. -40db strength is something I get only in the 10 feet radius of line of sight from the WiFi.
    Blackberry have obviously screwed up something big time with radio files since 10.3.2xx
    Out of curiosity are you able to try the newer leaks on your old router

    Yes that was my hunch too, how can an old 3db single antenna beat a newer 5db double antenna (if it wasn't OS muddle up to start with) I was able to do that only with Passport 10.3.02.0798 release and found the same weak WiFi and radio reception using android app WiFi Analyser from Amazon. I consistently got poor WiFi reception and I had no way to go back to pre 10.3.2.500 versions to compare the difference If my old WiFi router perform better with older release.
    By way of judgement I am still on the fence with the relativity, apart from noticing consistently poor WiFi and radio on 10.3.2xxx

    I have had same wi-fi issues since updating to 10.3. I have never had such terrible wi-fi connection just a few rooms away from router.

    Changing the lease time on my router is what fixed my wifi problem with my Z. Haven't been disconnected since.
