    When I flick my Wifi widget switch, it takes a long time to find my home wifi network. It will find locked neighbor networks, and then say scanning, for up to 10 minutes before it finally brings up my home super strong signal network and finally joins it. What's the deal with this? Anyone else having similar issues? It makes using Wifi basicly useless, because by the time it actually is useable, I could have done everything I wanted to do using the slower 3G speeds.

    You and the neighbor may be using the same channel. Go into your router settings and change the WiFi channel. Like if it's on "7", set it it on 9 or 11, etc.

    Make sure your neighbors network name isn't a saved profile in your phone too.
