    I have WiFi in my house but it is at the other end of it. Mind you its not a big house. As we all have become well aware android WiFi antenna aren't exactly powerful or durable. My of evo is so bad I have to put it next to the router. Is there a way to increase performance or speed?

    I thought I remembered you saying your phone was your only internet? Isnt that what the rooting trouble was all about?

    Anyway, a weak wifi signal isn't going to be solved by any sort of app or anything like that. There is an advanced setting you can use for "best wifi performance"--but its gonna kill your battery.

    I would check your router for issues. You shouldn't have to place the phone next to the router for it to get a signal. Even on the OG Evo. Make sure the router and phone are on compatible bands.

    I would start there.

    I had dropped the og several times. Its the phone. I have had exact results with every router. How do I make my WiFi best?

    I wasn't expecting an app to do this. Maybe a flash able or some sort of file edit to unlock the governer.

    Have you tried Wifi Analzer to see if you are having channel or naming conflicts? It's free, give it a shot.
