    How do I prevent wifi from turning off?

    I can not seem to find this in Google, here, or on the phone, but when the screen goes blank for a while the phone seems to drop its wifi connection and switches back to EDGE. This happens for example at the gym while I am listening to Pandora. Becomes a pain because in the gym the EDGE signal is weak, but wifi is open and free. How do I make it keep the wifi up?

    Thanks!

    when you go into wi-fi settings, hit the menu key then "advanced" and change the wifi sleep policy to never

    Also, I've been using an app called "Wi-Fi Keep Alive" by Shantanu Goel

    It has several modes that include partial wake locks and 10 sec ping to keep connection alive. I use it primarily because it has a handy widget so you don't have to go through system settings to find it. Free in the Android market.

    Well, I had a similar problem with my N1. Actually, wifi would just crap out all together after going to sleep. Browser would say page not found, push email would cease, etc, until I toggled wifi off then back on.

    Called Google support to troubleshoot. Step one is restore to factory.
    Settings > Privacy > Factory Data Reset (THIS WILL WIPE YOUR PHONE)

    Then they had me go through Settings > Wireless & networks > Wifi Settings > Menu - Advanced > Wifi Sleep policy and turn it on to Never.

    My phone got hot. Red hot. Like burn you to the touch hot. They replaced my handset. I did the advance ship option where you pay a retainer so you don't go without a phone for two or three weeks.

    My new phone does not have that problem.

    Not sure this is helpful to your case, but just my 2 cents. It might be hardware.
