Are there plans to release an update to fix the Lollipop WiFi notifications bug?

Are there any plans to release a new update that fixes the well known WiFi notifications bug in the LG G3 Lollipop (Android 5.0.1) update? I understand that it could take some time, but it would be very helpful to know if I can expect something at all. Thanks for any information you can provide.

I am sure that it is coming but try what I did. It has been successful for me for over a week.

Got to Settings---Wi-Fi---select the menu (3 dots at top right of the screen)---Advanced---Keep Wi-Fi on when screen is off and switch that to No.

Thanks, that's an inventive workaround. However, I don't share your optimism that an update is coming (at least not for many months). 😞 Verizon Wireless Customer Support hasn't even mentioned that they are working on it. Very disappointing. I understand they don't have a fix, but it seems they are reluctant to committing to fixing this issue.

5.1 should address wifi connection for those folks with wifi connection problems. Check out the end of the article.

It says nothing about LG or did I miss that?

No it didn't. The article is about Google having sent out the 5.1 update.

Now the ball is in the OEM's court.

An update "should" be released in about 1-3 weeks by Verizon to hopefully correct a Wifi issue.  I think this fix could also correct the notification problem as well.  LG does not plan on releasing 5.1 for a while and I am not even sure 5.1.1 is even on their radar.  This will be a minor patch, but I am unaware if it will include any other potential fixes.

I hope you're right. How did you come by this information? From Verizon or LG? Just curious as I haven't been able to get Verizon Wireless Customer Support (or any official Verizon channel) to admit there is an issue let alone commit to providing a fix.

Short story - I had a Verizon developer contact me and he provided the information after they could not correct my Wifi issues.  I am not holding my breath on this but at least it is a small glimmer of hope.

Had the same problem. Started happening right after the lollipop update. Here is how I fixed the problem...go to settings...mobile networks...system select and change from global to lte/cdma.
