    I have read a zillion threads about the Droid wi-fi issues. I have tried several things with no luck. I thought I'd start my own thread and see if anyone has had this particular problem.

    My equipment:

    Droid which I got the last week of Feb 2010. Firmware 2.0.1

    Sprint (yeah, I know...it's free from work) Cradlepoint PHS300

    My Problem(s):

    My Droid sees it just once every so often. As soon as I press connect, it goes back to 'Not in range, remembered' Even right next to it.

    The router is wide open, broadcasting SSID. I also tried putting a WPA password on it.

    I then tried another 3G router (an older WRT54G3G) and the same thing happened. It 'sees' the network for just a few minutes and then goes back to 'Not in range, remembered) If you try to connect, it just goes back to not in range.

    I tried an open network at my local coffee shop and it doesn't even see it.

    I love this phone, but the wi-fi is just a non starter!

    Any ideas?

    Yeah, sounds like your WiFi is not working correctly - on your DROID.

    Get an exchange pronto.
