    I have 2 stock Fascinates in our home and the wifi was horrible on them (but ok on other wifi devices like laptop) after ota 2.2 until I changed the wifi output of our dLink router from sending out a mixed wifi b-g-n signal to a solid wifi g signal only.

    That was ok by us since all other devices we have are only wifi g anyway.

    Both Fascinates now rock on wifi.

    I think the Fascinates' wifi worked ok on wifi outside or home (eg Starbucks) both before and after the dLink signal switch so I think the root problem was the mixed b-g-n router output.

    Good luck!
