    Oh yea! My work Wifi requires strong auth with a corp userid and password. It works fine on my other wifi devices I use. So it's not the Wifi itself.

    I have the same issue - this link may have a hint: http://www.galaxys4forums.net/forum/13-galaxy-s4-faq-guides/775-if-you-having-wifi-problems.html

    Issue could be due to WEP encryption on the router - Can someone here try switching to "WPA/WPA2 or equivalent" and confirm it goes away.

    My D-Link router (with DD-WRT v25-sp2) is already set to WPA2 Personal and I'm getting the problem.
