    Wifi suddenly stopped working

    Yesterday, after owning my Bionic more than a month, the wifi stopped working. Connected, ip address, but no throughput. I updated to 5.7.893, but that didn't change anything. If I forget then re-add the AP everything works for about 60 seconds, but you can watch the connection degrade very quickly. All of my other wifi devices work flawlessly, including my original Droid (with CM 7) and my Asus Transformer. I tried resetting the router (factory reset) anyway, but no luck.

    I ran a shell session to poke around to see if I could narrow it down to DNS or something else, and I couldn't really find anything. Look at this output from a ping of my router, and notice that there are missing packets all over the place:

    shell@cdma_targa:/$ ping -c 20
    ping -c 20
    PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=62.3 ms
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=12.6 ms

    64 bytes from icmp_seq=15 ttl=64 time=390 ms
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=17 ttl=64 time=281 ms
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=20 ttl=64 time=446 ms
    --- ping statistics ---

    rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 12.695/194.143/446.868/152.498 ms
    And then this output pinging another computer on my network:
    shell@cdma_targa:/$ ping
    PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
    From icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable

    64 bytes from icmp_seq=24 ttl=128 time=136 ms
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=31 ttl=128 time=469 ms
    Then this output from an nslookup that takes 11seconds to return for Google...
    shell@cdma_targa:/$ time nslookup www.google.com
    time nslookup www.google.com

    I had this same problem with my original Droid until I installed Cyanogenmod. Is this just an ongoing issue with Android? I have seen lots of people talking about variations of the same issue with different phones, especially when I was trying to resolve this on my old Droid.

    I have had my bionic for about a month also and I have not had any issues with 3g / 4g / wifi/ the real only issue u have is camera lag and if it doesn't get fixed with the next upgrade coming by the end of the year then I will pass the problem onto my dad and use his upgrade to get a razr.
