    My phone is rooted with the latest baked snack rom as of last night. Now the phone will not connect to my wireless router. It just loops from scanning, optaining ip address, remembering, and back over again. Did I forget to install something?


    Thanks!

    I had the same issue on an unrooted, after the Froyo OTA.

    I found that with the router's SSID Broadcast Disabled I can not connect.
    Changed the router's SSID Broadcast to Enabled and it works fine.

    Give that a try if you have your router's SSID Broadcast Disabled.

    I'm pretty sure it's a problem with Froyo. When my wifi gets stuck in that loop only a reboot fixes it. Hints are that it's a problem with older wifi routers but there's no definitive answer/fix that works for everyone (at least that I can find).

    You can see lots of folks reporting the issue at Issues - android - Project Hosting on Google Code
