Title:

My phone is the only device that has a bad wifi connection

Text:

My iPhone 6's wifi connection was working perfectly fine until about 2 months ago. Now, 5 feet is about the maximum distance i can be from my router in order to get a connection on this device. Every other device  (iphone 4, ipad, tablets, laptops) has a good connection throughout the house. Another thing I should probably note is that my phone has a great connection to other spots such as public wifi and personal hotspots. And also that my phone has not had a SIM card for the past 7 or so months.

This is what I have tried:

-resetting router

-Factory reset on phone

-Reset Network settings on phone

-Disabling bluetooth on phone

-Disabling "wifi networking" under phone settings-->privacy-->location services-->wifi networking

-Switching dns to ( 8.8.8.8 ) , ( 8.8.4.4) , and ( 8.8.8.8,8.8.4.4 )

-Renewing Lease  through phone 

-Switching Channels through router settings

iPhone 6
