    Hi Gang.

    Okay what started out as a slight annoyance is quickly turning into a right pain in the ass.

    For some reason, over the last week or so I'm finding that I have to restart my WiFi connection to connect to the net.

    The web pages just wont load, but as soon as I restart it, they load fine. This goes the same for the Market.

    As far as I know NOTHING has changed on my phone as far as WiFi goes, and my Rom has worked just fine till this issue started.

    Anyone any idea what COULD be causing it?

    Thanks in advance

    Andy.

    How odd.. One (where I work) requires me to turn wifi off then on again before I can connect, its one that I connect to everyday, and is remembered as well.
    All the others I find, my phone connects with no problems, its just this one.

    Do you have any problems with other WiFi spots?

    Yeah. I have two permanantly remembered, and I have to restart WiFi for both. Never had this issue a few weeks ago.

    You're right. It is odd.

    Its not my WiFi but an unprotected one at the place I work, all others I visit are fine so you could well be right, in that theres interference on this particular one.

    I had the same problem. I downloaded WiFi Manager found that there was another router near me on the same channel. Changed channels and have not had any problems since.
