Okay so I'm a total noob at rooting and such, I decided it was time to give it a shot since the D1 won't be seeing any future official android updates...
Anyway I followed the instructions here Root Droid 1 - regardless of OS version - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum and got root access. Then I downloaded LFYv1.7 and put it on the root of my SD card and renamed it, rebooted my phone into recovery mode and factory reset/cache wipe and installed the update.
Now my Wi-Fi won't connect - It can scan and find networks but when I tell it to connect to mine, it goes into this little 'connecting -> disconnected -> connecting -> disconnected' loop until Wi-Fi simply turns itself off and then back on again.
I read somewhere that drivers for Wi-Fi are included in the kernel files, which to my understanding are installed in the same way ROMs are installed. I downloaded the 1000slv kernel and installed it the same way I installed the ROM and that didn't seem to fix the problem. I'm about to install the 900slv kernel and see what happens.
Anybody else have the same problem? If so, did you fix it and how?

*I don't know if it matters, but I was running the official 2.2 frg22b before I did any of this.
