    When I hook my phone up to a computer to charge (I just hit "Home" when it asks me what mode to put it in) the Wi-Fi will not work. The meter is showing a good signal, and the phone is indeed connected to the network and received an IP, but will not send/receive packets. As soon as I disconnect USB, the Wi-Fi begins to work again. I have checked the "Never" option on Wi-Fi sleep but this problem persists. Any ideas?

    That's a weird problem.

    My wifi works when I connect my phone to USB.

    If I'm only hooking my phone up to charge, I usually hit the BACK softkey to ignore the choices.

    But to be honest, I don't notice if my wifi is connected when I use it as Mass Storage. I rarely use the debug option.
