    Yes and no. It works great on my 802.11g network but I can't get it to connect to my N network. No speed or connectivity issues otherwise.

    I had it hooked up to my VZW wireless router and the only problem was during initial setup, while adding a new network and entering the router ID and password - the text entry was a bit difficult because the cursor would inexplicably jump back a couple of characters, so I'd be typing along and notice that the numbers were transposed because it began entering new characters midway through the sequence. I had to erase and redo it several times and it was a real pain. Might be a bug with this numerical entry field.

    do you have to enter the router id?
    can't you just search for networks and enter in the network password?

    I have WIFI on my BlackBerry and its not spectacular either buy it is better than using 3G. Hope the Incredible is at least as good as that.

    BTW to the guy having problems on his "N" network I don't think ths device is compatible with wireless "N." I thought I read only "B" and "G"

    I'm coming from a blackberry with no WiFi...

    So question: will it automatically connect to WiFi once I set it up, if it's available? Or will it ask me to connect each time and annoy the hell out of me if I go in and out of WiFi hot spots?

    I can make a connection to my home network from further away from the router than I can with my laptop. I had no trouble with the connection.

    Uh oh.

    Sounds like the problem I encountered when trying to link my wife's Eris with our brand new Linksys N Wireless Router. Our old G gave up the ghost a few days ago so I went to BB and got the latest greatest N router. Tried just last night to make that connection and no luck. We had been able to easily link the Eris with the old G router with no problems....

    Hmmmm.....

    Wonder if the Evo will be able to connect.

    It should just hook up but that's assuming you're leaving the WiFi turned on within your device.

    Mine is a "N" router. I didn't look to see if that was the protocol or not, since I was led to believe this phone didn't support that.

    If you go into the router's setting you should be able to tell the routher which standard(s) to broadcast in. I have a wireless G router and it will broadcast in A, B, G, or all 3. Check it out there is usually an IP address you type into the address bar on your browser to make these changes.

    As I said previously I'm 99% sure the Incredible is only compatible with Wireless B and Wireless G.

    check what mode your router is broadcasting in - N only or N compatibility mode. If it's the latter, you should be able to connect. I don't think N is enabled on the Incredible.

    My router actually has 2 distinct radios with unique SSID's. One of them broadcasts 2.4GHz b/g/n and the other broadcasts 5ghz a/n. It's the latter that my Incredible will not connect to. I'm realizing now that the Droid is capable of N but only in the 2.4GHz frequency.

    Thanks guys.

    What frequency is your access point broadcasting on? It must be 2.4GHz (b, g, or n)

    Does the access point have MAC address filtering turned on?

    Check your Wi-Fi access point logs to see if you can see your phone trying to connect and what errors may be occurring.

    I simply cannot connect to my router which runs mixed b/g/n. My laptop with N capability connects fine. My old BB bold 9000 that only had b/g connected fine. But my Dinc won't connect.

    Is anyone else having wifi connection problems???!?!???

    Mine connects to my wireless network at home without a hitch, and I'm able to browse the internet. I'm NOT able to pull down Twitter updates via Twidroid Pro, though, which I'm confused about. When I disconnect from my wireless network, I am able to pull down new Twitter updates. It's a mystery, for now.

    I just tried this, I have the same problem. Linksys router, running mixed b/g/n. It says it's connecting, and then 5 seconds later it says it's disconnected. Made sure everything was typed correctly, still no go. I'm not sure what's up.
