  1. Lol factory reset, brand new router. All other devices in house work fine. LG G4 is awful. Many ppl online have the same complaint. None of these tips help. I bought a new phone and have no problems. Moral of the story? G4 are lemons and this list is nonsense if you know the slightest bit about using wifi.

  2. Item number 4 in your list worked perfectly. The Wi-Fi analyzer app worked quite well by rating channels by their level of usage in my area. I logged into my router, changed the channel selection from “Auto” to a channel with the best rating from the app, and the effect was instantly better. Thank you!!
