    Hi All

    It seems that I have problem to leave Wifi on in order to get skype & SIP calls when the screen shutoff (black screen / idle)
    I changed the "wifi sleep policy " to never but still i cant get incoming calls

    I tested it several time even tried to ping it but it seems that it is disconnects after the screen shutoff

    I would appreciate your help


    Thank you

    Noam

    Go to:
    ->Settings
    ->Wireles&Netw....
    ->Wi-Fi settings
    ->select your connection and hold it
    ->change password
    ->set Security from Auto to your router settings ;)
    ->Save :)

    same result.....
    I can ping it while the screen is on but the second that the screen lock (turn to black / sleep mode ) it stop until i open it (the N1 is still connected to the access point but no traffic is transmitted )
    the wireless nic is also at sleep mode !!!

    I found an workaround by leaving the screen on but it isnt the right solution for that problem

    i found workaround that works

    you will need to download & install "screenmodewidget" and choose to keep the screen active all time , now open clock and press on dim option (top - right icon)

    now the screen will go almost off but the wifi is still running perfectly (you be able to get incoming voip/skype calls)

    Is that what you call a solution?

    I will be sending the device back to HTC on Monday. I am fed up of this WiFi issue.

    If you go into the Wi-Fi settings, bring up advanced, and the Wi-Fi sleep policy. Change the option to Never.
