Google's Android 4.2.x Nexus device owners have been suffering from the Wi-Fi issue on their gadgets for awhile now and interestingly, Google has not come up with a fix.

Google addressed Wi-Fi connectivity in its forum as "Issue 40065." The thread was first started on Nov. 20, 2012 and the number of Nexus device owners complaining about the Wi-Fi issue is increasing.

On Feb. 1, 2013, the 'Issue 40065' thread was closed without any resolution being given. Some users have reported that the connection drops in the middle of browsing and others noted issues when streaming audio with the display off.

The closed thread does give some inputs from Google, but does not indicate when the problem will be resolved.

"Thanks to folks who provided details. Some issues have been identified: Scan failures with certain, routers, Channel selection for non US regulatory domain, ARP filtering. Other interop issues continue to be investigated. For new folks reporting issues, please include router model/firmware version alongside the symptoms to help with repro. Not clear when fixes will go out at this point — some will go earlier than others," noted Google.

The popularity of Nexus 4 has been growing rapidly and Google and LG have finally been able to bring the production up in order to meet the strong demand for the smartphone. Additionally, the ASUS-made Nexus 7 is also one of the most popular tablets in its category and a large number of Nexus 7's are running on Android 4.2.x.

It remains to be seen how swiftly Google is able to fix the problem without affecting the loyalty of its customers.
