since i updated my switch to latest firmware 5.0.1 i'm facing serious wifi problems! right now i'm playing nba playgrounds online alot but after the update it became nearly impossible. during gameplay i have frame dropouts and it seems that i have syncing problems. my opponents players suddenly stop to run or shoot and just stand idle.
After that nba playgrounds completely crashes. after restarting the game a notice pops ups which informs you that you just lost about 73 rp points or more because you disconnected too much from the internet. happened to me very often the last few days and i already lost a huge amount of rp points. my progress just vanished. nba playgrounds became unplayable. i checked my internet connection and upgraded to a completely new router (just to get sure) and everything's fine on that side. so my only guess is that it must have something to do with the latest update.
does someone else has the same problem?

Honestly, I've had no problems with my internet connection since the 5.0.1 update. I'm assuming this is something other people are dealing with as well. This'll probably warrant a 5.0.2 update with more stability fixes like this.

No, if so other would've said so. I think this is isolated to your network-mine upgraded and had no issue with wifi. And since you talking about only one game is sounds more like the issue is on the site since it was online that would preclude it is a NS problem. So unless other games you have are online and doing the same thing it comes do to their server issue not a NS issue.

well i have other games on my switch but nba playgrounds is the only game i play online and i'm playing it almost on a daily basis for the last three months. 2 kinds of connection problems happened so far: "connection lost" - i assume this happens when the other player just shuts down the whole game because he doesn't want to lose. the 2nd one is the one i described in my opening post. this problem is freakin' killing me. i don't dare to play the game anymore. lost so many points because of that and it takes a lot of hours to regain this amount of points. i called my internet provider to check if there's something wrong with my internet connection and had my router replaced (but just to wipe out one more cause). my internet connection is totally fine. shouldn't have made the update to 5.0.1. bummer.

I've had problems with Splatoon 2 since the update. Nearly every match I've played I've been dropped, to the point of where they locked me out from even playing..
Splatoon is usually not great when playing online but it's never been this bad.

so i at least i'm not completely alone with my problem as it seems. i bought an ethernet adapter from hori and so far that seems to work but a wired connection is not a permanent solution for me. hope that there is going to be fix with the next update.

So it looks like no one here even contact Nintendo Support did they? Also no two problems are the same nor related since no one on here can be there see what is happening. So if your not willing to contact Nintendo support if it is a hardware issue then this will not get any where fast.
