    You know I had the same issue. Router working fine, laptop doing great. Phone would lose wifi connection.

    Last week my router just dumped on me. I bought a new router and now the phone is keeping it's connection. I can't say for certain that it was the router, but it sure looks that way.

    I had this problem as well. What I did was I reset the router security key type. Changed it to wpa then back to wpa2. Has worked fine eve since.

    I have read tons of postings on this forum and others about wifi dropping. I have this problem as well. My question is why is almost everyone blaming everything other than the phone itself? Every other wifi device I have works perfectly with my router set up the way it is. Why should I be messing with router settings? It must be a phone setting or a hardware problem with the phone. I will keep looking for an answer.

    good point

    Please keep me posted. I also think its the phone itself. So far this is the only thing I have problems with. Other than that its a great phone. Hopefully the new update will fix this.

    That could very well be a possibility. We just point to the router as the problem because it's the easiest to fix.

    If it is a hardware problem with your phone, exchanging it can be a real pain. You take an even bigger risk by getting a CLNR and might end up going through the whole problem over again.

    Because I've experienced the same problem you have an solved it by figuring out my router settings that saved me a lot of time and headache at a verizon store. Just tryin to give you the easiest possible solution for now and then you work your way from there.

    Well, I took a look at all my wireless devices and did some spec checking. I've wanted to upgrade the security on my network but had an old device that would only work with WEP. That device is now gone, so this morning I changed my security to WPA2. All my devices work on the WPA2.
    I will post again in a week or so or if the wifi drops again on the phone.

    I had two laptops, an iPaq handheld, a Tivo and a wireless HP all in one printer on my old router setup. None of them ever had a problem. But I did change my router setting from WEP security to WPA2. Now everything including my Droid 2 works fine.
    Not sure if just any change to the router setting will fix it. You might want to try just rebooting the router by unplugging it before you mess with settings.
