N1 is slow to connect to WiFi

    Since getting the N1 it has always felt slow in connecting to WiFi. I recently got an iPad and it is much faster in connecting, which makes the N1 seem even slower now.

    Mine usually takes about 8 seconds and sometimes up to 30 seconds. The iPad connects in 2 seconds.

    How long does your N1 take to connect to WiFi?

    I was in a hotel lobby which had free wireless. I could easily connect with my Thinkpad laptop. But not at all with the Nexus One. I was less than happy. Do not know why.

    No matter what access point it usually doesn't take more then 5 seconds to connect.
    I'd be a bit happier if it were instant (for some apps I ave to wait a few seconds when waking up the phone). But 5 seconds is good enough.
    I think I read about a mod for better reception on the wifi adapter that some people also reported faster connect speeds on xda but I can't locate the topic anymore (such a cluster**** over there :p)

    Takes no more than 5 seconds for me. Even if it took 10 seconds I don't think I would complain.

    Most of the time when I turn off the phone and then turn it on later, the wifi is not working. So waiting for wifi has become a nuisance since I do it every time I turn on the phone.

    The wifi connection gets severed and the adapter disabled when sleeping to conserve power.

    This has not been my experience. The Wi-Fi may got to sleep, but I seldom have to reconnect when I wake the phone. I've had the phone in my pocket for about an hour, and I just woke it up and Wi-Fi was still connected and receiving data right away.

    My N1 takes 5-10 seconds to connect to Wi-Fi when needed.

    Ever since froyo my N1 has been having a lot of wifi issues. I have set my N1 next to an original droid running 2.2 and while the droid is connected my N1 doesn't even see the network (this is my home network). Even next to my laptop, which I run wireless, the laptop is connected and some days the N1 sees the network, others it doesn't, even when it does connect it will often drop the network after a while of not using it. Quite annoying.

    there really seams to be a problem with the wifi connection.
    If you turn on wifi, and enter and exit the AP list it is a lot faster to connect.
