Gamil over wifi not connecting

    Desire 2.2.

    Last few days seem to be having a problem with anything that requires my Gmail account over home wifi.

    Home wifi setup has two access points; one Thompson and one Netgear. I can access both with my laptop without trouble. Wifi scanning, from laptop and Desire, shows that these are the most powerful signals on their respective channels.

    On Desire if I use the stock internet browser I get connected but if I try the stock BBC news app or stock weather app or Gmail or precaching Google maps there is a problem in that hardly anything works or if it does very slowly.

    I have used wifi settings to "forget" both my access points and then reconnect; both show full signals when my Desire is in their range.

    If I move outside where I can get a good 3G signal all seems to work?

    Any help on solving home wifi problem please?

    Tonight I tried my Desire on someone else's wifi and it worked as expected.

    So something must be wrong with my wifi setup.

    Any ideas?

    Also tried turning off the firewall on the wifi router; no affect.

    No body has an ideas?

    Seems to have been a router problem. Rebooted that now all working.
