When I installed beta1 my home wifi became patchy at same time. I assumed it was router and my internet provider switched it for a new one. My iPhone and iPad are both on ios7 but numerous other devices in the house on ios6 belonging to the family. They are constantly having issues while I'm on wifi. My wifi at work also showing similar disconnecting and regularly needs a reset. Also happens at a friends house, lately saying he only has wifi problems when I'm around. I was about to buy an AirPort Extreme but don't want to spend 200 bucks if issue sorted with gm release. Anyone else having similar problem or are problems I'm having even possible

Is it possible? Yes

I was having odd wifi/ internet issues for a while that happened out of the blue, eventually my wifi camera would disconnect randomly everyday, then it died. Solid wifi/internet ever since, so yes a device with issues can cause your entire network to have problems.

Have you tried a clean install of ios7 on each device? Have you tried downgrading to ios6 and see if the network issues persist?

You answered your own question. Your home, work, and friend's wifi didn't all become unstable at once on their own. Save your money and wait for GM or roll back to iOS 6.
