    Default WiFi disconnection issue

    Is there any fix for constant Wi-Fi disconnects ? It's almost making android unusable

    It's very router dependent. I haven't yet figured out exactly what settings cause it. I have absolutely zero issues with my home router. It stays connected all the time, even on sleeps and such. At work, it's not too bad, but can be a little finicky. If I'm visiting my parents, I drop wi-fi all the time. Like, every 15 minutes. My dad's router is about $100 more expensive than mine too!

    What channel is your router on, and what security do you have? (I use WPA2 and it has worked fine on both channels 6 and 8...on 8 now).

    Since I instated the updated alpha 3 by the other person and then ran the terminal command to clear WiFi, it seems to be holding we'll see

    Well, The WIFI fix I thought solved the issue didnt.. In Fact, I now click on SETTINGS-->WIFI and I get a delayed response and then a "ACTIVITY WI-FI Settings (in Application Settings) is not responding" message... sometimes I can press WAIT and other times I have to press FORCE CLOSE. then it goes to WIFIU & NETWORK SETTINGS.. I think there is an issue bugger then just the type of router or channel. I hate to go back to WEBOS but it appears I may have to until someone can resolve the WIFI issue.

    Right now it doesnt show ANY WI-FI networks and the response is REALLY SLOW.. please..... someone fix this!

    Now the unit wont even turn on and a LONG PRESS of the power button does nothing.. I think I am going to go back to WEBOS and get a REAL ANDROID tablet. this is just crazy to go through all of this. I know its alpha but still....

    Dont know your circu,stances. but works fine for me. Maybe a clean wipe and reinstallation of a3 and then Xron on it may do the trick.
    It works just like a "real" android tab

    Why would it kill the battery?

    I was having very severe problems with disconnections or the WIFI utility freezing. My issue was corrected by installing Alpha 3.5 and leaving Airplane mode on all the time. Now, it's been rock solid for the past couple of days. YMMV.

    You can't leave seriousness airplane mode on with WiFi. As soon as I turn on WiFi airplane mode turns off

    Try the following to fix the wifi connection problem.

    Go to settings
    Applications
    Developement
    Device Host Name
    Change the host name to something 16 characters or shorter (Some routers don't like a host name longer than 16 characters)

    This fixed my WIFI
