    This may be present on the original HTC Desire, I'm not sure, but I'm running the insertcoin DHD rom. I have been getting poor performance out of my Wifi (I let my phone download the United Kingdom map from locations overnight and it was still going after 8 hours even though I have a 50mbit connection!)

    I decided to look around the Wifi options and I found something in the "Advanced" menu of the WiFi settings that says "Best Wi-Fi performance" and ticked it. My WiFi is now really fast again.

    Just wanted to share this in case anybody else is getting poor performance from their WiFi!

    I have never seen such an option. Not in my stock 2.2 or in my Cyanogen 2.3.

    My bet is that it's ROM specific for your insertcoin ROM.

    It could be a Desire HD option rather than ROM-specific.

    You mean Sense 2.0?

    Could be, I'd have to check that with my Desire Z buddy. I'll let you know tomorrow.

    Um the Mini doesn't run Android, nor does it run Sense 2.0

    It doesn't matter, it came out at the same time as the Desire HD and the Desire Z, and it has the same feature.

    There's a suggestion in this Desire HD thread to enable the option in the last post by Quartermass.

    I tried this sneaky feature on my Desire running InsertCoin, it didn't make any difference for me.
