Stock, unrooted TB, with all of the OTA updates applied.
I have a linksys wireless G router at home that I connect my phone to with wifi. The problem is that the wifi connection will just stop working. The wifi indicator in the notification bar looks like it is connected, but I get no data. I can't send or receive emails. When I open up the browser on the phone I get an error stating that there is no connection.
I have a very hard time believing that this is due to my router setup. I have a Windows laptop that is connected wirelessly to the same router 100% of the time and that never has any connection problems. So the router is perfectly capable of maintaining a long running connection, but the TB is not.
I have tried wifi-fixer, and it is only OK. It will reconnect every so often but it messes things up when I'm actively doing something when the timer triggers.
I've been having this problem ever since I got the TB in March. I've been hoping that the OTA updates would fix this but so far they haven't. The only saving grace is that I'm in a 4G area and have unlimited data so I have all but abandoned wifi completely.
I would love to find out if my phone does this on all networks or if it only happens at home. But I unfortunately do not have access to wifi at work, so don't have any other networks where I spend an extended period of time.
Has anybody else experienced this? Is there something that I can do to fix this? Do I have a dud phone? Should I get a replacement from VZW?
