TB on home wi-fi disconnects after a while
I'm using wi-fi on my Thunderbolt when at home since it's easier on the battery than 4G. My home network works pretty well - neither my PC nor my iPod Touch has connection problems unless I get far from the router.
But my Thunderbolt disconnects after a while (I haven't yet determined when). This is at any battery strength. I have looked for some settings to allow it to stay connected under any circumstances, but haven't found anything.
Are there any settings I am missing? Any way I can test or log what is happening?

Thanks. I remember having seen that before. It's not exactly intuitive - the advanced button should just be on the screen instead of hidden behind a menu.
Anyhow, I have the sleep policy set to never. Do you have "Best Wi-Fi performance" checked? Is the hit on the battery significant?
Maybe there are occasional blips in my wi-fi that my PC and iPod Touch gracefully recover from by reconnecting, while the Thunderbolt doesn't?

I used to have this problem with my OGDROID and my dlink dir-655 always disconnecting after a couple of hours. I was talking to the sales guy at my local Best Buy about upgrading my router because of this and he recommended I make sure I'm running the latest OS for my router first. Anyway I have not had this problem since then I actually think my TB has been better than my Droid
