    I've just spotted that my wireless connection on my phone drops after a short while when I'm not actually using the phone. The wireless function remains on, but disconnects from my router, which is a mere 5 feet away (so unlikely to be a signal problem - other wireless connections from other devices remain active). As soon as I switch the screen on again it reconnects. I'm not sure if this is anything to do with the ROM (Oxygen) and a new setting that I am not aware of or if it's something else.

    Anyone any ideas at all, please?

    D'oh. Found it. Just in case anyone else has the same problem:

    Settings -> Wireless & Networks -> Wi-Fi Settings -> Menu/Advanced -> Wi-Fi sleep policy.

    I don't remember Wi-Fi switching itself off when I first installed Oxygen and I didn't set it myself. Maybe I just wasn't paying attention.

    On a lot of ROMs it's off by default for whatever reason.

    How are you finding Oxygen otherwise?

    So far, so good. Not missing any of the features of other ROMs or stock, except for Car Home, but I've managed to find the launcher and the APK for that elsewhere and install them. Battery seems to be better, but have been driving a bit, so the phone has actually been on charge a lot, so can't be conclusive about that yet. I have noticed in CurrentWidget that the idle power drain is -3mAh, instead of the -4mAh I was seeing on other ROMs. I'm not sure to what extent this will improve battery life though. Overall impression is that it is very slick and with no bugs and some battery improvement. It's a keeper until an ICS ROM comes out, I think.

    I'll try it out eventually, thanks.
