    Whenever I connect to Wifi at my house on my Incredible, it eventually causes my router to not work and I have to restart it. Does anyone else have this problem and know if there is a fix? Thanks.

    What exactly does it do to your router? I don't see how it could affect the router at all. All it does is grab an IP address from it. Your phone really doesn't have the ability to break your router.

    I connected my gf's Incredible to the router with no problems.

    Is it possible you only have a select number of IP addresses allowed and the Incredible is attempting to steal one or something weird like that?

    I have no idea. It use to do it after awhile, but last night it did it instantly. Anyone else with any ideas?

    Without knowing exactly what happens to the router, I have no clue.
