    I have an unlocked desire, updated the firmware to 2.29.405.2 and now can't connect to wifi, it just says error under Wireless and Networks so I can't even set up the WIFI again.

    Does anyone else have this issue? Any resolution?

    you took the update without having your gold card in.
    my guess is this was a branded device and got unbranded as this is a WWE unbranded update.

    never flash without gold card, it breaks wifi and other things

    Gold card? Sounds like something from Amex ;-)

    Is there a fix? I have the same issue.

    TIA

    Cheers

    I am using a HTC Desire Debranded and I too had this problem after running the OTA update to version 405.2.
    I did not have a gold card in my phone when I ran the update and a few posts have suggested that this is the reason WiFi gets stuffed up.
    I downloaded the full ROM for this version from Shipped ROMs:

    I then put a gold card in my phone and ran the ROM upgrade.
    Of course these steps completely erase the phone, but everything worked fine again after I did this.

    LOL. It does indeed sound like Amex.
    Some VooDoo is involved, but here is some info on how to make a gold card:
