Problems connecting WiFi to Linksys WRT320N

    Hi All

    I have the HTC Desire HD in Australia from Vodafone running Froyo 2.2 Vodafone branded

    Some background info, I have had this phone for a few months since November 2010, had no problems previously with my old WiFi setup using a Linksys WRP400 WiFi G AP Router. The connection was always on and never dropped.

    I have since upgraded to a new Linksys WRT320N and the WiFi connection drops out frequently and has trouble reconnecting. This will happen once or twice in 10 minutes.

    The signal reception is generally Good and I'm no more than 10 meters away from the AP at any time, and only ever through one brick wall

    I have phoned Linksys support and changed some settings on the router and now the connection is better. The WiFi connection up for an hour at a time, but it still drops and the phone has trouble reconnecting and often won't reconnect at all and needs to be manually reconnected by going through the menus. The menu setting Menu > Wireless & Networks > Wi-Fi Settings > Menu > Advanced > Wi-Fi sleep policy is set to Never. I also tried enabling "Best wireless performance" but it didn't help

    The phone settings haven't been changed, yet the connection is less reliable. Everything points towards the WRT320N router having a flaky Wireless radio

    I pulled out a log of the phone as it tries to re-associate with the WRT320N AP.. maybe someone can spot the problem?

    I am not sure that the router is a problem, I am getting the same problem with my Dlink DIR-615 Wireless N router.

    I have also tried out a lot of things suggested on the net but nothing has helped so far.

    Hey there

    The router is definitely the cause of the problem as I was using a Linksys WRP400 and the connection was solid - never had a drop out where as with the new WRT320N the connection was dropping every 5 minutes on the same phone with the same settings.

    There's an app called WiFi Fixer which acts as a service to reconnect WiFi whenever it drops but even that had trouble getting the phone to reconnect on the old settings.

    I also downloaded the WiFi Scanner app to see what other WiFi APs were around me on which channels and I changed to another channel In Australia we use channels 1, 6, 9 and 11. Around me I can see lots on channel 3 and 6 so I changed to 9

    Getting closer! I changed another setting on the router last night which seems to have mostly resolved the problem: Set the WiFi Security from WPA2-Personal to WPA2-Mixed and the WiFi connection reconnects in seconds rather than minutes.

    You don't hide your SSID do you? Just a thought as I'd read somewhere that the DHD didn't like that ...

    Hey, thanks for the reply.. No I don't hide the SSID..
    The phone is still having trouble keeping a solid connection to the AP. Thinking of returning it for another brand, or maybe just a replacement

    Has anyone else had a good experience with the Linksys WRT320N (or similar 160N, 120N) wifi/router and their HTC Desire HD?

    My Linksys WRT 160NL works perfectly with my DHD.
