    My iPhone was not able to connect to other wifi network(starbucks and other free network) which is why I was thankful when this actually fixed my wifi problem. Since I tried changing my router setting my wifi connect in my house is alot more strong without having any issues or whatsoever connecting with other wifi networks since. Even after resetting my new router I wasn’t able to get a stable internet connect.

    So I updated my iPhone 6 to run iOS 10 Beta. The Home wifi signal drops really bad where I was getting slow and painful speed on download. Also I Need to stay within 5ft of my router or my wifi signal will just drop right off. My other iDevice such as iPad is not running on iOS 10, so it’s not experiencing any wifi issues.

    So before i did this update to iOS 10, I was able to get perfect wifi signal speed standing all the way outside from the house. Unfortunately I don’t know what to do and might have to revert to my older iOS 9.3.3 to fix this problem.
