Mystery Wi-Fi issue still affecting Nexus models running Android 4.2.x

Channel selection for non US regulatory domain and ARP filtering. Google said it was still investigating, and that fixes would go out although it was not known when this would happen.
If the problem is happening to your Google Nexus 4 or Google Nexus 7, you can try the fix from XDA. Or, you can continue to wait for the solution from Google. The Mountain View based company has never brought the issue public, but as long as they take care of the problem like they say they will, should it matter?

Improbable. Nexus devices tend to not have software issues like this.

Yeah, I haven't experienced any of this on my Nexus 7.

Yes, because your device hasn't experienced it that means there is no problem, of course. Come on. There was a whole 4 months between 4.1 and 4.2, there were bound to be some problems, this being one of them. 4.2.2 or 4.2.3 should fix all the bugs, and all Nexus owners will be happy.

Can you say that with a straight face? I didn't think so.

Don't try to deflect the issue at hand away by bashing apple. The nexus is a great device, but not perfect. Issues affect these devices...it's part of tech.

My Nexus 4 hasn't had any Wi-Fi issues, but my Nexus 7 has all kinds of problems. I often get a "can not connect to proxy server" error in Chrome, which is fixed after turning off Wi-Fi for a bit. Thing is, I've had this problem for a few weeks (while running on 4.1.2).

Funny how this story uses every excuse under the sun to make the issue look small but their earlier article about problems in the Windows Phone store gets blown out of all proportion. Meanwhile, idiots like michal fisher and joshua topolsky wonder why we get so frustrated. There's a difference between highlighting a products flaws and spewing out vitriolic fanboy garbage to disparage a competing platform, which is 'something that happens regularly at the verge and pocketnow. I suggest WP users boycott those sites altogether; I know I have.

Don't pay attention at him, nor he has something, nor he will own something, he is just a troll. One day he says that he loves Apple, other day says that he hates Apple, in one comment he says that he will buy Sony Xperia Z and after few minutes in other comment he claims that he will buy Nokia Lumia 920 and so on and on...
