    I'm having an odd issue w/Pete's BB 7.9...

    I am able connect via WiFi to home network just fine - connects quickly and I get a proper IP.

    However, nothing will connect - email, browser, marketplace, etc...

    Everything works fine from my laptop on the same wireless network. Never had any issue w/any guest laptops at my home on the network. I don't have mac address filtering or any other settings like that...am using wpa.

    Any ideas? Never seen this happen before...previously I've used my phone on wifi from home it worked, but that's been quite a while, can't remember when/which ROM.

    Again - I connect fine to my wireless network, get an IP, but when I try to access anything from my phone it acts like I'm not connected. Go back to 3G and all is fine. Tried going back and forth between wifi and 3g, and it behaves the same way each time...appreciate any help.

    <EDIT>

    Now it's working...weird. Didn't change any setting. I was trying another ROM (that wouldn't even boot for me - Chevy has a new 2.1 w/working auto-brightness, mute, keyboard lock) and after flashing back to 7.9 now wifi is working.

    I hate it when stuff fixes itself and I don't know why...oh well, glass half-full and all that.

    Red I am having this same issue and I have updated radio, rom's all kinds of crazy things and still no luck what so ever getting on any wireless networks. I have to put in static IP's all the time to get them to work.

    Still cannot connect to my WIFI (Belkin N) with any 2.2 ROM (tried every combination of ROM / Kernel / Security settings you can imagine). This is with 3 different Droid phones (gave my Droid "throw against the wall therapy" and was able to get a free replacement). All the 2.1 ROMs run fine. From the research I have conducted this seems to be a problems specific to certain routers and Froyo. I guess it will be 2.1 until I spring for a Droid X or I switch routers (or both).

    @ Redflea, just out of curiosity, why are you running BB 7.9?
