Fix WiFi drops out with nexus 7 sleep mode
I have went to the advanced wifi settings on my nexus 7 and setted it "Always On" to keep the wifi connected during sleep. But when I stream videos, download and update apps over Google Play with sleep mode, the WiFi constantly drops out and looses connection like mad multiple times per minute. It seems to be an issues of Jelly Bean OS.
After installed the WIFI High Performance Widget on nexus 7, the WiFi connection works normally and stays connected throughout the night, without any issues. This little app potentially solve the sporadic/unreliable connectivity problems.
WIFI High Performance Widget also has other features, such as speed up download transfer rate, lowering latency, and ensure wifi is running put into higher PM state.
