    Hey guys, the Motorola X is my first Droid phone, but so far I have not been able to download apps on the X via wifi. It seems that they stall on the download screen, but as soon as i switch over to 3g by turning off wifi the downloads start almost instantly. Is there any thing that I am doing wrong? I am starting to believe that there's some sort of program conflict preventing the phone from downloading while on wifi. Any tips tricks or other ideas I can try?

    Nope, didn't change anything. Just to further clarify, apps will download without issue over 3G, but when i have wifi turned on (or when in airplane mode with wifi turned on) I can do everything except download an app. Seems strange.

    Also tried doing a force stop on the marketplace app, then clearing the cache, re-attempting download.... nothing.

    No, you can try doing what Abe21599 suggested but that didn't work for me.

    I've seen a lot of DX wifi issues and its a known problem with Motorola. Maybe check out Motorola's forums to see if they have any fixes.
