So I dropped my perfectly stock Thunderbolt (unrooted... never got around to doing it again after an HTC warrantee replacement) and the screen went and shattered (I'm sure it's because the extended battery weights a ton). I used it for about 1.5 months without any problem other than having spider-glass. Replaced the screen, though I had to re-do it because it wasn't lined up the first time... and now the screen works perfectly.
The issue is my WIFI doesn't work. It'll seem to connect when I first turn on the phone. It'll pick up my Router and run for anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour, but then it'll give me the dreaded wifi "Error" and won't let me get into my wifi options. Everything is grayed out except for the button that turns the wifi on/off. It'll say "turning on" for a few minutes, then gray everything out again ans say "Error" again.
I did a full factory restore (didn't have anything to lose that I couldn't back up in 20 seconds), which didn't help. I got irritated, rooted, tried several different roms along with clearing the Dalvik cache (still don't know exactly what it does, but beside the point), and now I'm resigned to the thought that i may have bumped the wrong hardware when replacing the screen.
So, the question is, does anyone know what hardware deals with the WIFI connections? If i can understand where the possibly affected area is, I might be able to move, shift, sodder, superglue, swear at, or replace in hopes of getting WIFI back. I'm also open to any ideas that might be software related, but I seriously doubt that now...
Thanks in advance. I don't contribute (with much shame) but I do read these boards with great interest and my wife probably thinks I'm looking at porn with how much time I spend here at 3am.
