    So I just upgraded to the droid 2 (to be specific the r2d2) this past weekend and have already been having wifi problems. For a time, I would connect to my wifi network for a few minutes and then the phone would begin scanning again, disconnect from the network and reconnect. I would stay connected for shorter and shorter periods of time and now cannot connect at all. Any solutions?

    With my Droid 2 I can connect to my WiFi, atleast it says that I am, but I can't use anything that uses the internet nor can I browse files on my computer. It shows up and says it's WEP encrypted but when I select it it won't let me enter the WEP keys, it just askes for a password just like you would logging into windows... So I believe that a Droid 2 can't connect to WEP encrypted WiFi. I'm thinking about trying WPA or WPA2 to see if those work sometime tomorrow.

    My Droid 2 didn't like WEP at all. I changed the security on my router to WPA2 and it has stayed connected ever since.

    Had same problem with D2G, used my Network Magic program to add a device, and it took the phone. Phone hasn't disconnected from it yet. I tried everything posted everywhere, nothing seemed to work until I tried that. I have a Dlink router. Might be worth trying.

    I have a Linksys router but it doesn't run Linksys firmware, mine runs a custom DD-WRT firmware which gives me way more options like I can change my WiFi range to 10 feet or 400 feet.


    WPA2 Pre-Shared Key useing WPA algorithms in TKIP mode with max users at 1 on G WiFi works PURFECTLY.
    I can now use my phone as a remote for my computer and browse the web on WiFi.

    I put the WEP key in the password. Works for me on Droid X.

    Maybe I did WEP wrong... I don't know. The Droid 2 WiFi settings are nothing like my old Omnia i900. On the Omnia I had to enter the WEP keys and the password and now on the Droid 2 it just askes for A password.
