Im glad someone else is having this problem also, mine recognizes the network, authenticates, grabs information, etc. then disconnects suddenly before I get a chance to do anything. My password is right, and signal strength is excellent, please help us.

It may be a defective unit. I've had my Inspire since release, so about 5 days now and have had zero problems with WiFi. You could always go swap it for a new one. From what I read on these forums, nobody had any problems switching a defective phone for a new one, even without the receipt.

that's a good router. I'm assuming the inspire is the only device that's giving you trouble, right? Everything else in the house stays connected? If that's the case I would trade the phone out.

Had my HTC Inspire 4G less than a week (of course), switching from iPhone. I also think WiFi is poor compared with what I was used to on iPhone ...

The phone does not immediately connect to WiFi when in the range of a known service - it will continue to use AT&T for data in my house or work, though it knows both WiFi there.

The phone is likely to drop WiFi bars or lose connectivity when I hold it in my left hand - reminiscent of the iPhone 4 death grip.

Same issue here. My gf's iphone 3g works totally fine in our home, but my Inspire phone keeps disconnecting from wifi very frequently. Not sure what to do. If it continues will return this one

thankfully i have great wi-fi reception with mine. connects great at home and at my office where i'm forced to use the leap authentication protocol which is notoriously difficult to stay connected to.

i'd opt for possibly bad unit?

Mine is losing connection to wifi in the garage and less signal in the kitchen than my HTC Aria. I was looking into expanding the range of my wifi. I have read that things may interfere such as garage door openers. Maybe this phone is more sensitive than others! I won't give it up. Just want to see if I can improve my wifi. My laptop gets less signal in the kitchen too. I think it is my comcast router with one antenea. Gonna try changing channels too.

Might get better reception if you run a router off of your comcast router and connect via the new router. You just connect the 2 via an ethernet cable.

So buy a new router and plug in to old router? I am confused on how to set that up? I have another router a linksys with 2 antenea. should I try? I am curious on the two routers, why two routers and not just a new better one? If you could tell me how I should plug in I will give it a try. I should also say that my router is separate from my modem (both comcast)

I get it now. Sorry, I thought you were hooked in without a router already in place. Also did not know you had an extra router standing by. Yeah, try using that Linksys instead of the Comcast router. Maybe a better router hooked to the modem would help. The Linksys might get you better reception than the standard Comcast you're already using. If that doesn't work, then someone with a little more wireless networking knowledge will be able to help you more.

I will try hooking up my old router to my comcast modem tomorrow. Haven't seen any improvement with changing channels.

My husband has the HTC Aria and that stays connected in the garage (although very weak signal) I returned the Aria for the Inspire and now I get less wifi strength!! Still not a deal breaker for me, love the Inspire (and the Aria).

I will post if if made a difference. Comcast router is a netgear. Not sure on the specs of either one I have (netgear and linksys) but the linksys does have 2 antenea, but may be older. THANKS
