droid x apps wont download on wifi
Hey guys, the Motorola X is my first Droid phone, but so far I have not been able to download apps on the X via wifi. It seems that they stall on the download screen, but as soon as i switch over to 3g by turning off wifi the downloads start almost instantly. Is there any thing that I am doing wrong? I am starting to believe that there's some sort of program conflict preventing the phone from downloading while on wifi. Any tips tricks or other ideas I can try?

I think I may have had the same problem at one time. I'll have to give it a shot when I get home from work (no wi-fi here).

I'm also noticing the same problem, although I just realized, it may have something to do with my firewall...does anyone know what ports the marketplace and google voice to text uses? What's also really annoying is that my 3g connectivity goes down as I coonect to wifi, so my apps won't download for quite a while after I pick them up.

Having the same problem, which is why I AM using more data on the verizon network. Its not a huge deal for me at the moment, but if verizon shifts away from unlimited bandwidth to a tiered approach, well then that would be different. Especially if I start downloading movies and such.
I have the typical issues, wifi drops, cannot d/l apps on wifi. I've tried rebooting, and I have .604 update

Re: droid x apps wont download on wifi
The annoyance is that I have to go to my WiFi settings and turn it off midstream.
I do hope that Verizon will grandfather in existing accounts. That will, at least, give me two years with my X with unlimited data.

It could be firewall or security settings on the router. Check the stickied thread at the top of the Droid X. People are volunteering their router model, firmware version and security settings so that others can troubleshoot their problems.
I have had 0 problems with my WiFi other than being unable to accurately type in a massive, randomly generated Hex key.

This is just a guess, but I've experienced the same thing in my home when I'm in rooms that are away from the router. When I'm close to the router or in the same room, it seems that the connection has been dependable. Could it be a signal issue? Are you guys having this problem when you're in the same room as the router?
