    I have several remembered Wifi SSIDs on my Droid, including my home Wifi and one for the local library, which are at least 4 miles apart. I just discovered that my Droid is indicating I am connected to the public library Wifi (as shown in my settings screen), when I'm actually connected to my home Wifi. Just to make sure before posting this, I used Network Discovery to confirm that the devices visible to my Droid were the devices on my home Wifi.

    Other than the incorrect SSID display, the connection seems fine. Has anyone ever seen something like this before?

    How strange..... Have you treid scanning with something like Wifi Analyzer (on the market) what does that show up? other than that turning wifi off and back on might clear it up?
