Xoom suddenly dropping Wifi connection
I bought a Wifi Xoom in the beginning of April last year and it has worked flawlessly since. But yesterday afternoon it started dropping its wifi connection 1-3 times per minute for 5-30 seconds. I know the wireless network is solid because none of my other devices are having any problems (and the Xoom never has before). Nothing changed yesterday that i know of with the Xoom or my wireless network. I've rebooted the Xoom twice.
I opened Wifi Analyzer and just watched it - when I lose my connection, Wifi Analyzer shows no networks - here at home it usually shows 6 or so. When it suddenly sees signals again, it connects to mine immediately.
I have 'Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep' set to 'Always' and I always have. I messed around with that setting with no apparent change in this behavior.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm thinking about re-paving it but I'd rather not do that. I'm concerned that this may be a hardware problem since no software has changed and since it seems to not see any wireless signals when it cuts out.
