    It's a Bionic. Mine has the same issues, while my daughter's laptop and Iphone hums along on the home wifi.

    It may be Motorola. Neither my OG Droid or Bionic can connect to my wifi at home, even with permissions turned way down. It might connect for a minute, but even then the data speed is very slow (like 1 Mbps).

    Oh, and it's a Motorola modem so you'd think it would be easier.

    Motorola devices are weird with WiFi.

    Here are a few suggestions that I did that helped:

    1.) My OG DROID had an issue with my router. A lot like what aaf709 described. Only way for me to fix it was factory reset the router. For whatever reason that fixed it. I also took the time to update the routers firmware.
    2.) When my Dad and Moms X and Pro got GB, they stopped getting WiFi. Find out GingerBlur doesn't like the security set to AES. Had to be TKIP, or AES & TKIP.

    Maybe one of those can help.

    Only had my bionic 3 days and today my wifi stopped working...well, sort of. My bionic would show that it was connected with good signal strength, but i couldnt get on the internet at all.

    Well,
    After 3 VZW tech support calls and a factory reset, warranty Bionic is being sent out to me.
