Android 5 Lollipop update.

If you are using a Nexus machine of any kind, and you get a prompt to update to this new version of Android, DON'T, at least not until this has been fixed. You'll probably end up with a bricked wi-fi like mine has if you do!!

Re: Android 5 Lollipop update.

Temporary workround...  select any wifi channels other than 12 or 13.
@ dvorak & godsell, are you using other channels?

Re: Android 5 Lollipop update.

It's apparently affecting some machines and not others. Not sure Google understand why just yet, hence the delay in issuing another update.
