    I am curious how many Droid users are able to utilize the Wi-Fi capability of their phone.

    I rarely use it bacause I get good 3G reception in most places. And, the times I have tried to use it havent been very successful. The first time I really tried to use my WiFi network here at home, I couldnt get on.

    Then I turned off and restarted the router and managed to get on my network. the next time I tried I couldnt get on. I havent really messed with it since.

    One of the very few places I dont get 3G reception, unfortunately, is at my work. There is a dead spot right at my work.

    I am wanting to be able to use the wireless network at work, but need to make sure the phone is working properly before I talk to the guy at work who handles the IT stuff. Dont want to bug him and then have a problem and not know if it is the Droid or the network at the office.

    I use wifi constantly at home. I don't have very good cell service at my house. I am so happy that the Droid has wifi.

    I'm in the same boat as you. I use almost stricktly 3g due to the fact that I get a good signal at the house. I have gotten wifi to work, however, it randomly stops working and I have to change my router security settings to get it to work again. I would rather not go through the hassle so I just leave it on 3g all the time.

    My Wifi connection to the three passworded networks (and 2 unpassworded networks) have all been very easy and seamless...hmm.

    Same here. A lot of places have unsecured wifi connections just waiting to be used by anyone and everyone.

    It automatically turns on at home, and I use it at school, some of the buildings on campus are older and cellphones rarely get decent reception in most of the lecture halls.

    WiFi at home (WPA) works fine. I just hardly ever turn it on as I'm not downloading anything large enough to warrant it.

    WiFi at work I haven't bothered with as they block a lot of sites such as Facebook. Again, I won't be downloading anything large enough to make it worth the miniscule time required to toggle WiFi on & off.

    The Speedtest app shows 1,589/819 on 3G & 2,398/1,007 on WiFi at home. Netbook WiFi download is 8,000+, so there's a bottleneck in the Droid.

    Seems kind of unfair to put it that way since quite a few network cards are close to the size of our phones.
