    I have a G1 that says "unable to start wifi" Some say it's a hardware problem. I found a proposed software fix:

    su
    (allow the request when asked)
    chmod 777 /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf

    Dumb Question:

    ? I am on Tmobile prepaid which allows no internet.
    If I get wifi to work, can I then use the internet via wifi?

    Yes, wifi works fine for internet with TMO prepaid. That's how I do it.

    If it were my phone I'd probably try a factory reset to see if it helped.
