    I use Lynksys E1000 wirelesses N router on channel 1 as most people seem to use channel 6, must be the default and causes interference and connection problems.

    Try channel 11. I use a belkin on 10 but I'm surrounded by a mess of networks. Figure that's gotta be the problem. If you have interference in your area, try using protected mode.
    Edit: lower frequency=longer range. High frequency=short range. Higher frequency cannot travel well through dense matter, and it dies off sooner. But, the data can transfer faster at higher quality if broadcast over higher frequency. That's why its hard to understand someone with a deep voice but easier to hear them through a wall. At least in my theory anyways. Correct me if I'm mistaken.
    Still looking for a better reason to post from anything other than the OG

    Sure enough, re-rooting worked. I unrooted, and WiFi worked. Re-rooted the phone and now WiFi works again

    Thank you kmagameguy.
