    Have you tried the wife's phone with another router... such as Starbucks etc? Are you able to make connections with your wifi with other devices? That should narrow the problem down to the phone. If the problem is with the phone you might go into the setup and remove your wifi connection... and clear the cache. Then try setting the connection up again. If all else fails.. and you can't establish a solid wifi connection you might check through our Android phone areas and see if we have your particular phone.

    and if you have no luck there... you might try our general Android discussion area that can be found at this link: Android Lounge - Android Forums
