    I have an issue where after a while my browsing will stop working over WIFI.
    Pages won't load even though the wifi connection is still available.
    It may start working again if I'm patient and persistent, or will work straight away if I disable then enable WIFI.

    Have googled that with the original Galaxy S you needed to go to wifi settings - Advanced - sleep policy and select Never to prevent the same issue.

    Anyone else experiencing this? I've tried the settings but need to test it more to confirm it has fixed it.

    More importantly, is this setting likely to have a negative impact on my battery life?:thinking:

    I'm hoping this is a sofware glitch rather than HW.

    Thanks

    Never sleep wifi is the correct setting and it has no negative affect on battery life.
