    All of a sudden (after 2 weeks) my wifi shuts off all by itself whenever the screne shuts off. To turn it back on I have to go to settings and turn it back on. When I look at the WIFI widget it indicates it IS on, but it is not.

    Did you change any settings just prior to this happening?

    Dan Droid from anther forum send me the following and he was right on target:

    "Press the Menu button and go to Settings -> Wireless & networks -> Wi-fi Settings
    - Once there, press the menu button again and select "Advanced"
    - Select "Wi-fi sleep policy" and make sure "When screen turns off" is NOT selected. If it is, change it to one of the other ones."

    I never knew that there was an "advanced settings option". It was set to shutdown wifi when the screen shut off. WFI had worked fine for 2 weeks and then today this started and I have no idea why. But, changing the setting definitely solved the problem.

    All's well that ends well !!
