    All of a sudden (after 2 weeks) my wifi shuts off all by itself whenever my screen goes to sleep. To restart I have to go to the wifi settings and turn it back on.

    I can't find anything that I have changed.

    Try this:

    - Press the Menu button and go to Settings -> Wireless & networks -> Wi-fi Settings
    - Once there, press the menu button again and select "Advanced"
    - Select "Wi-fi sleep policy" and make sure "When screen turns off" is NOT selected. If it is, change it to one of the other ones.

    Dan,

    Thanks so much. I never have seen that screne before, but the wrong selection was activated. I changed it and all is well.

    Thanks Dan for posting that tip. Hopefully sometime soon a complete user guide/tutorial is available. Seems I spend a lot of time going through forum posts learning tips and tricks. Or if there is a guide available somewhere a link would be appreciated.

    Just got my Eris today and so far it's a nice little unit.

    Even after changing the wifi sleep to never it still was off this morning (phone was on all night) and I had to manually reconnect. Not really a big deal but it'd be nice if never meant never.

    wi fi issue

    I too have set my wifi to never turn off but I may wake up and try to use it and it wont respond. I have to reboot the phone which I shouldnt have to do. When I leave my house it does not always reconnect either. Any one else having these problems or have any suggestions?

    yes, When I leave my house I can't get it to reconnect when I return. EVen a reboot doesn't fx the problem.

    Hey, does anyone know if there is an app that displays your Wifi signal strength *in the notification bar*? I don't want to have to open up an app to find out what my signal strength is. I'd like to see it right away in almost real time status.

    Thanks.
