Well, you couldn't flash his file, it was adb, but I made a flashable file that changed the buffer size as suggested. I really haven't noticed much difference, my wifi since I re-flashed my whole system is actually worse. My wifi seems to disconnect at about the same amount of time after starting every time. If I restart it at that point it generally does not drop out again until the next time I start it up. Not sure why this issue is happening again, I used to have this issue like most, but for some time it was not occurring on my system before I re-flashed, not sure if it was after I installed wifi analyzer and changed some settings or what. I need to do a little more testing and see if I can determine what had it working so well before. If you are interested, I will see if I can find my flashable zip of the supposed wifi fix increasing buffer size to see if it helps your issues?
Thanks, panengineer, but if it made things worse for you, I think I'll pass. My WPDN, for the most part, has always disconnected from WiFi during the first 2 or 3 minutes of using WiFi, and that was using all stock f/w and stock build, right out of the box. It was a quick fix though, back then, too. All I had to do was wait for it to automatically re-connect most times, which it would do rather quickly. Occasionally, I would have to turn off WiFi and then turn it back on, but once I was back on, it would stay connected. After I flashed Kewl Guy's OPDN and supplemental 2.1.1, it still had the same problem, being consistent with how it behaved when it was still stock. I'm not 100% sure, but I think it was still working the same after I installed wifi analyzer. I suspect that it wasn't until I installed 3 more apps, that I started getting these erratic wireless WiFi issues. I installed the add on app for WiFi Analyzer, which gives the ability to connect to a specific access point from a list, regardless of SSID (eg... two or more APs might have the same SSID, and with the add-on app, you can select which particular AP you want, based on it's MAC address, not SSID.... very cool and useful for my job... I don't remember the name of the add-on, but if you click on an AP to connect to, from within WiFi Analyzer, it will prompt you to download it.) The only other two things I installed, which I think is when it all went bad is the IceStream app for IceFilms, Mx Video Player and a codec file for it, but I'm, still not 100%. It wasn't until I was actually playing a movie in MX video and then powering off the WPDN mid video stream, that I noticed I have the problem more severely. So, this is why I'm not 100%. I think the problem started somewhere between WiFI Analyzer and Mx Video, if that is any help. I'll check with my colleague next week, and see if she is having the same wireless issue. Her setup is almost the same as mine, except she doesn't have the WiFi Analyzer add-on app.
I'm also wondering if all this might be a result of maleware/viruses, obtained from the free apps on the Android market or SlideMe market, that I installed. For example, after In stalled IceStream, or MX Video, I now get a message in my bar at the top, indicating that there are two battery updates for me. Everyday, I clear the message in the download section, but it keeps coming back. In the message, apparently, I have to go to some site to "opt-out", and that is all that site does, is register peoples' "opt-outs", while collecting info on your device and what you do. I don't know if our WPDN devices are prone to malware/virus threats or not, as I haven't read much about that. At one point, I thought I saw that WPDN owners should install a good anti-virus app and/or an anti-malware app, but then elsewhere, I think I read that doing this isn't necessary on these, so I don't know what to think about all that yet.
Anyhow.. Sorry for the long message. Thank you for your reply; I much appreciate it.
