    Shad0w325 I did what you said and it worked. Thank you. If I delete that file off my SDcard or use my droid without the sdcard inserted, will the wifi fix still work? Or does the sdcard have to be inserted for the fix to work since the file is on the sdcard?

    The commands you typed copied the file off the sdcard and into /system. You no longer need the file to be on the card or the card to be in the droid.
    Cool CM Tricks
    custom_backup_list.txt - make a list of files in /system that will survive a nightly install (ringtones, notifications, system apps, wallpapers, whatever)
    in Terminal Emulator, set this as your shell command: "/system/xbin/su -c /system/xbin/bash". You get all the features of bash, root access, and you can still use the initial command field for whatever you want (default is adding /data/local/bin to your path)

    I believe part of the confusion here is where ppl are thinking sdcard is root when /sdcard is in actuality a directory in root.

    Don't believe me? Open up Astro which brings you to /sdcard and hit the up button. You will then see a whole new world. Including /system which is where the fun begins.

    1. In preparation, make sure you have Root Explorer installed on your Droid (it costs a couple of bucks, but it’s worth it).

    2. Download the tiwlan_drv.ko file from the tasmanian_droid forum at Alldroid to the root of your SD card.

    3. Open Root Explorer, scroll down to system, then lib, then all the way down to modules. Tap the white button at the top so that it says “Mount R/O.”

    4. Long press on the file tiwlan_drv.ko file, select “Rename” and add the extension .bak to the file.

    5. Go back to the main directory and scroll down to sdcard and find the WiFi fix file you downloaded there, then long press and select “Move”. If you’ve done it correctly, you’ll see a “Paste” button at the bottom as you navigate through the directories back to modules.

    6. In modules, click “Paste,” then long press on the file and select “Permissions”. For “User,” check the boxes for Read and Write (but NOT Execute); for “Group” and “Others,” check only Read, then tap “OK”.

    7. The details under the file name should show “rw-r--r--” (which is what 644 means) and should be identical to those for the file you renamed with the .bak extension.

    That’s it, your WiFi should be up and running!
    I don't quite get this, am I suppose to have the file tiwlan_drv.ko in the module file when I get to 3? Can anybody help pls?

    You shouldn't follow these directions at all - they are out of date. Instead, just download a kernel packaged in an update.zip file. It will include the module and install itself for you
