    i had the same issue with TWO fascinates. i took both of them in and received replacements. it's a hardware flaw and you'll need to get your handset replaced.

    It won't turn on or it won't connect, not sure if this works but try unplugging your router for about 10 sec then plugging it back

    Sucks, I just started to get that problem now. Try to turn the WiFi on and it says unable to scan networks and shuts off. Great, now it looks like I need to replace my Fascinate? Just great...

    I was only rooted. I just did a factory reset and my wifi is working now. Go figure. had to re-enable root again, no biggie. Just kinda odd that wifi stopped working. maybe some issue with DL09 causing intermittent issues with wifi connection?!?!?! hopefully its not happening for many of the other fascinate users...

    Might need to try doing a factory reset. That's how I got my wifi to work again.

    When mine goes into sleep mode or whatever it wont reconnect until I disable wifi and re-enable it. Does anyone know a fix for that? It's already set to never time out, but alas, after a few hours of being idle, I have to reset the wifi for it to work again.

    Hehe no worries, I did kinda word my original question weird. I was/am tired I think its just a wifi flaw because my gf's incredible has no issues with my Linksys E3000.
