Roku express repeated wifi failure

I bought several Roku express units and all worked fine when set up and all saw all the wifi signals in my house and nearby, but after a few weeks several only saw a very week local signal and then WHEN rebooted saw no wifi at ALL. Going to return the defective ones but I have now replaced 4 and it keeps happening.Oddly I still have two that have not failed.

Any idea why this keeps happening? Seems to happen in the same two locations in my house. I stress that once they fail moving them or putting them in place of a working express and rebooting does not solve the problem . they can be 10 ft from a wifi source and they either won't see it or any other wifi or it will show just one bar.

Looks like a manufacturing or programming defect
