    Hi all, Moto Droid 2 is able to connect to wifi at my school without a problem. It also connects to my home wifi without any problem when my laptop is also connected to the network. Once I put the laptop to sleep or shut it off completely, Droid wifi does not work. It's a netgear router, not sure what model. Does anyone have any suggestions about how to fix this?
