    Hi, Hopefully someone out there has seen this before and can help. I've searched the forum and googled without success! I've got an unbranded Desire running 2.2. Occasionally (maybe twice a week) it will go into a cycle where WiFi disables itself when connected. Once fully disabled, it enables itself again. Once it has found my home network, it obtains the IP address. At the point of connection it then disables wifi and starts the process again. Normally, it works fine. Connected, stable, just as you'd expect. Once it starts on this loop I restart the phone and it works absolutely fine. This has happened on another WiFi network other than the home network. I've got the power control widget, and since this started I've now got WiFi manager installed as well. I run locale with a scenario that turns WiFi on when I'm at home using the location power saving add-on, however this WiFi problem has occured with both locale enabled and disabled. Any thoughts on what it might be? Cheers, Rich

    What version of 2.2 do you have? The 2.10.405.8 RUU is known to have wifi issues, is the wifi actually disabling or is it just disconnecting? My Motorola was having trouble staying connected to wifi and after installing wifi manager and viewing the radar I found out my router was being interfered by another nearby router on the same channel so I changed channels and it was working much better since then.

    I'm on 2.10.405.2, no updates are available. WiFi is actually turning off (WiFi manager says enabling/disabling WiFi, and the power control shows the Wifi icon shading out, going off completely, shading in, lighting fully then shading out again). Rich

    Yeah you could be victim of that 2.10.405.2 wifi problem. You could try the 2.29.405.2 that came out not long ago, if you can backup whatever you have.

    Shipped ROMs

    Cheers, sorry for the slow reply. I'm not rooted so will stick with the stock ROM and see if any updates come my way.

    I've installed WiFi fixer from the market, not quite sure how it works but seems to notice when something's up, restarts WiFi which seems to fix it more often than not. I'm happy enough with this.
