WiFi issues?

Sometimes, my nook just cannot obtain an IP address. I'm currently fully stock (microSD card is not here yet, so I have to wait for that :(). I noticed the 1.1 update claims to improve wifi, so that's good (haen't installed yet to test). However, my sister just returned her Nook that had Nookie 0.6.8 running on the SD card with the exact same issue. We thought it was bad, so she ordered an ebay one as did I. However, now I'm not so sure. Is this a common problem? Will custom roms running on eMMC or microSD fix this? Is my luck of having used two nooks and finding them both with bad wifi just horrible luck? Any experiences with this?

Edit: Update did not help.

We have 2 nookcolors, I use mine at work and home, both link to wireless fine, I haven't seen that problem much in the forums.

It does seem to lose the wifi if I'm not using it even tho I did install the Spare Parts app and set the wifi to never sleep.

I'm just running the 1.1 B&N updated version rooted.
