    I don't know what happen but after having my VM Optimus for over a year all of a sudden my wifi went kaput. In the settings>wireless and network settings the turn on wifi box is always unchecked. I'll tap it to check it. I then tap Wi-Fi settings. Before there was always a list of networks that I've either previously connected to. Now they've all mysteriously disappeared. The phone will try to scan for networks but after awhile a message will appear unable to scan for networks. The phone is stock version (no rooting, roms, whatever) with Froyo 2.2.2

    Hmm. Idk what to say honestly. Did you buy your OV retail? I would actually try calling customer service on this one. Since you're running the stock setup, they may be able to help you troubleshoot the issue.

    Good luck!

    Thanks to those who responded.
    Droidmyme, the phone was purchased new directly fro VM.
    Kalaniboy, does a factory reset mean I'll lose everything such as settings, bookmarks, my current position in Angry Birds, etc?
    Gtnunit, I did download and try Fxr Wifi with no success.

    Yes, with a factory reset it will delete all your data and put it back to the way it was straight out of the box. I agree that you should call customer service, but they will most likely have you do a factory reset right off the bat.

    Indeed they will, unfortunately. Im sure by now you've done the hole "pull the battery" for like 5minutes by now as well.....
    Good luck.
    Hell, you may get a replacement if unsuccessful

    Same problem - in the end I jammed my finger onto the on/off button for about fifteen seconds, and it worked. The WiFi button woke up, problem solved. It is what we do with our PCs, no? So why not tablets. Anyway, it works. Desperation over.

    FYI:
    Delete your current network from the phone. Turn WiFi off, then turn phone off. Turn router off then unplug. Wait 5 minutes, then turn on router (let it fully boot up). Now try to turn WiFi on and sign into network
    This will work to straighten out router, if the router is the culprit. Then if still having problems, at least you know it's not the router for sure.

    You are so correct. Sometimes people loose all sense of logic.
    What have you tried to do so far?

    Make sure you didn't get in airplane mode somehow and make sure your mobile networks option is check-marked.
    If this is good I'd try press and hold the wifi button until it brings up your list(if any). If there are any listed, forget them all then try a rescan or possible reboot.

    Believe it or not, for the Galaxy Note II it took banging the back of the device. I check several forums for a couple of hours and this was the solution. Factory resets will not fix it.

    try using WPS push button. go to settings, got to wifi, go to more, and select WPS push button. it lets you connect to the wifi by pressing a button on your router.
