 After updating my Nokia 6.1, I have found an issue with wifi connectivity range has been dropped. only after updating I found such issue. my wifi router is on the first floor. Before the update, I can receive wifi signal normally but it is hard now.

    I have very similar issues. Wifi range has significantly reduced and data download rate has gone down significantly too. Any help in this regard please?

    I'm also experiencing the same issue. The range of WiFi has been reduced.
  • I also have the same problem. After updating the phone with the May security patch.

    Strange, I had 47% signal-strength. After the update still 47% (same location in the house). TA-1053 on 5Ghz 

  •  Mine is TA-1089 ... I think it is due to the bugs in the latest update better go to service center.

  • I do not have an issue with the range. However, my WiFi goes to sleep mode when the screen is off. Because of this, I do not receive any notifications about emails, facebook,etc. Does anybody have this issue?

    I am also facing the same issue. I am having TA-1089. After the May 2018 update the Wi-Fi range has dropped drastically. 

    The Android Security Bulletin for May 2018 ( shows the WLAN component receiving many vulnerability fixes. I guess some of the fixes might have caused the issue. 

    Hope this is resolved soon.

    Go and meet service centre they will safely flash your device ... Its better option rather than you yourself doing such process
  • Same issues do something I think wring decision taking this mobile
  • There Is nothing wrong with mobile ... Problem is with android one updates
  • Nokia people do something regarding this patch pls release the patch soon. We are facing lot of isdurs
  • Then it has to be thoroughly check before releasing. We have to suffer after buying product also?
  • I think we should mail for android one. They were the people who are giving updates to us.
  • Same here. Before the update, the WiFi reception was good. Had no problems. But the update just messed up the WiFi connectivity. I can't connect to the WiFi even if I'm in the room next to the router. I don't think it's a hardware issue because this happened after the update, and others seem to have this problem too. Webpages don't load even if the WiFi is connected.
  • I merged this thread with this one >here< due to similar topic
