    Has anyone else had trouble connecting to their Time Warner Motorola wireless modem/router with android? I cant pick up the signal with my Droid X or my Galaxy Tab? My PC in both windows and Linux, my roommates Mac book Pro, and his iPad all connect without a problem, but Android doesn't seem to find it all? TIA

    As TheAdmiral stated, check your prefs to see what signal you are transmitting. Knowing TWC, pretty sure it's going to be a G signal. Also, within the router settings, make sure your SSID is set to "broadcast".

    Snag WiFi Analyzer from the market. It is pretty decent at helping you choose the best operating channel for your router. Will also show you at a glance who is broadcasting what around you so you don't run into any channel conflicts.
