All of these connection issues sound like router problems. Which routers are you guys all using?
I'm running a Netgear WNDR3700 and I never lose wifi with my X. I am running WPA2 with AES/TKIP mix.
I have netgear 2200 or something like that and I have tried all sorts of settings. Finally, I gave up and put my router back to AES + TPIK (WPA/WPA2) at 165 mbps which was what I had it on from the start.....
then all of a sudden my phone's wifi started working w/o issue!
BUT I couldn't help myself, and I updated to 2.2..... then it stopped working again. I have messed with all of the router settings, right now I'm on TPIK (which on the net seems to be the consensus fix and not AES) and it works some days and not some other days.
maybe it is the router, bc after I switched from TPIK + AES to just TPIK my computer has not worked as well, internet cutting in and out.....
but I ALWAYS blame the router, so maybe it's the phone this time.....
i give up, and will just run on 3G and check internet once a week or so to see if "something" has fixed itself...
Give that a try. If it helps, that's great. If not... we can brainstorm some more.
Thanks...I'll give it a try. I don't know what it was doing, so I guess I wasn't using it!
Hey, if it REALLY works, then maybe I can change my encryption back to TKIP + AES and fix whatever was going on with my computer.
A boy can dream!
I had a Moto Droid. It worked perfect on my WiFi.
I have a Droid X. It drops and reconnects on my WiFi all the time.
Nothing changed on my WiFi.
I think it's another Droid X glitch.
Another thing to try is under Advanced Wireless settings, change the Wi-Fi sleep policy to "Never" and see if it helps.
That is what I did when I setup my phone to connect to my router and I am not losing any connections at all.
It's definitely not fixed on 2.2. I've been running 2.2 since Saturday and I still can't get a consistent wifi connection. It'll connect on an N and 2 G routers with either TKIP or AES but after a few minutes it stops working. It still shows it's connected, there just isn't any data coming through. My touchdown exchange server tells me it can't connect and I get either VERY slow or no speed on speedtest.
