    Keep losing Wifi connection

    Hey guys,

    Quick question. I seem to keep losing my wifi connection when my phone has been idle for a while.

    For instance, I have wifi on when I go to bed, and when I wake up its on 3G.

    My girlfriend has a Milestone and she never loses her wifi. I think it even auto detects it when she comes home.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    I believe it's a common problem. The wifi sleep policy doesn't appear to work too well (our maybe, works more than is needed).

    I've not heard of a fix yet, but I haven't really been looking...

    The last two updates to my Nexus One have improved the wifi sleep policy (and the re-connect when you wake up the phone from sleeping (screen off)).
    This does save the battery by turning off the wifi when it is sleeping (screen off). I have tried this, turning off the wifi sleep and seeing how long the battery lasts, and then turning it back on and seeing how long the battery lasts. Basically I get another couple of battery hours letting it turn off the wifi when it sleeps.
    Ocassionally (maybe once a week or two), I do get a wifi connection problem when I wake it up and it does take longer to find and connect to the wifi. When this happens, I go to the wifi settings and tell it to connect to the router.

    Strange...I received an email that a user Iphone.net had replied to this but I do not see it listed in the thread. Mods, is something strange happening?

    Happened to me a few times in a few threads it's because the person posted a reply then deleted it (or a mod did).
