I updated my Verizon Pre 3 to 2.2.4 OTA the other day (actually, it more or less updated itself).
Everything seems ok (the same, actually), except my WiFi reception is screwy. I will get 1-2 bars in the same locations that I had a full signal (both in my house and at my office) and in the same locations that my Touchpad and my fiancee's iPhone are getting a full signal. At one bar of WiFi signal, the connection eventually gets very slow, and it is as if it degrades over time. As a result, it seems like it is an actual reception issue post update, rather than a change in how it is calculating the signal strength.
Nothing else has changed with the network setups in either location.
Anyone else seeing this? Any ideas on a fix?
I'd prefer not to go through the hassle of doctoring the phone, since the restoration process is typically a pain for me. I fear that will be necessary, but hope not.
Thanks in advance.
