    i dont even have a rom installed and i get this problem too, but at least it works more than before the update.
    before it, it would turn on, connect just long enough to say it was connected then go to "turning off" and stay that way until i rebooted

    mine does this as well, it will connect for a short time then it shows as connected but fails to provide any online access with both 3G and wifi showing. It also get stuck disabling wifi and requires me to reboot as well. Anyone else encounter this or a similar problem?

    It seemed to start when I upgraded to Bugless Beast v1.1 from v1.0 and ran the scripts:
    blockads
    free100mb
    rmcorpcal
    rmmms
    rmim
    rmmp3

    A temporary fix seemed to work for a day or so with the "fixperm" command, I have already tried to reinstall BB and repair permissions with ROM Manager with no luck.

    I too have an issue with wifi, but not as stated above.

    If I leave wifi on and the phone goes to sleep, it will not reconnect when I wake the phone up. I have to disable and re-enable it to connect. This is not a huge issue for me as I don't use wifi all that much anyways.

    Just throwing my 2 cents worth

    Mine the 3G works great its just wifi. It connects no problem after about 5 minutes I have to reset it. I never had a problem untill I went to bb. I was runing jrummy and had no problems. I was thinking maybe my wieless network was craping out.

    I had this problem on stock. If you go to Motorola Forums you'll see this problem is widespread big time. Has to do with the bad quality of the WiFi device in the droid. This has nothing to do with a rom.

    As McGuire stated it is a Droid issue, not a ROM issue.

    Not sure if you noticed but you can change the wifi sleep policy via the settings or spare parts. I leave mine on "never." Should solve some of your problems with wifi disconnecting. That is a native setting, not something I changed.

    More specifically, I think it may be an issue with the way the Droid handles reconnection from sleep with a WPA-protected network. The reason I mention this is that I always had issues with my stock Droid and using CM when connected to my home network or my two work networks, both using WPA2. However, this weekend I was at my brother's house who lives out in BFE and he has a completely unprotected network. I connected to the network once and never had a problem when resuming from sleep. I forgot I even had the wifi on since it just picked right up when I woke up the phone and started browsing. I thought, "Man, I can barely get a voice signal, but 3G is flying!", then I saw the wifi icon.

    Go figure...

    I think I will try this out. I can barely get WiFi beyond my front door (lets just hope neighbors don't put a sniffer next to fence) so I will set my wireless router to unsecured. Will report back.
