    Wifi was working fine yesterday. Now I'm out of range standing next to the router.

    Was there an update pushed yesterday?

    Does it keep working for any length of time? Every time I reset mine I am good for 2 mins or so.

    My wifi speedtest using the Speedtest.net app:
    Download: 14434 kbps
    Upload: 1124 kbps
    Ping: 75 ms

    And on 3G:
    Download: 1782 kbps
    Upload: 908 kbps
    Ping: 217 ms

    I wonder how much better a Droid 1 would perform...

    I hear the DroidX uses a Texas Instruments wifi chipset. My router uses a Broadcom chipset.
    I'm not having any serious wifi issue, but maybe matching chipset manufacturer reduces problems?

    I've been testing it for the last 15 minutes and it has been working for me. My speed as also increased to normal. I'm also using WPA2 with AES and wireless N. I've tried all the router fixes and this is the only thing that has worked for me. I turned airplane mode off and it immediately dropped from 13mbps down to .92 in the exact same position.

    Droid X Apex 1.4 wifi does not connect

    Hello,

    I searched around looking for answers and did not find what I was looking for, so I thought I would post to the thread.

    I rooted my Droid X and flashed ApeX 1.4 without problems and recently started setup of WiFi for doing email and files sync'ing.

    Using ad-hoc mode without encyption, I can connect to my laptop successfully and obtain an ip address. However, I cannot use the connection to browse to a local address for set.

    I wondered what would be good diagnostic steps to take. I have tried to browse to a local page with and without my firewall had no effect.
