    Hello,

    I appologize to all admins / moderators if there was a thread about this already but I looked and was not able to find it.

    I over clocked my droid to 800, 900, and 1.1 mhzs and had the same issue each time "Wifi can not connect". I have read through all of the posts on several forums and it recommended "refreshing the WIFI Kernal with an app called Droidpro or something. This app apparently is a few dollars in the market and I wanted to know if anyone knows if this works, or if there is an alternative, and more importantly...FREE solution?

    Patient: "Doctor, it hurts when I do this!"

    Doctor: "Don't do that."

    I know...

    Well I have restored from Nandroid back-up so my Wifi works, I was just wondering if anyone has found a solution so I can over clock with no issues.

    This was fixed...found it in a post

    No WIFI (you will unfortunately need adb shell to fix)
    -download tiwlan_drv.ko from same location as the kernel
    -place tiwlan file on /sdcard
    -boot into recovery
    -run these commands from PC through ADB shell
    adb shell
    mount /system
    mount /sdcard
    cp /system/lib/modules/tiwlan_drv.ko tiwlan_drv.ko.bak
    cat /sdcard/tiwlan_drv.ko > /system/lib/modules/tiwlan_drv.ko
    chmod 644 /system/lib/modules/tiwlan_drv.ko
    reboot
