    I've been having wifi issues, not just with Sapphire, with all froyo roms. Main (and only) problem being not able to connect to a network.

    I don't know how I missed this, but in Advanced in wifi settings, it says MAC address: Unavailable. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Do you have WiFi enabled? There's been some chatter on the net that with Froyo you need to enable WiFi first before you can see the MAC Address at SETTINGS > ABOUT PHONE > STATUS.

    I've just confirmed that if you turn off WiFi then do a power off reboot, the MAC address is "UNAVAILABLE" until you enable WiFi. A minor system quirk. :wink:
