9520: Wifi disconnection problem

Device: Storm 2 9520



Carrier: UK Vodafone


I have noticed when browsing the web over wifi, that when I leave the 3G/GPRS connection on, the browser will start to use the 3G/GPRS connection over the wifi when I browser certain websites. When I look to see if I am still connected the BB tells me I am and that there is a good connection. So why do I get forced in to using the 3G/GPRS connection over wifi. I find that in order to solve the problem I have to disable the mobile connection and just leave wifi enabled. I then have no problems accessing the same sites over wifi that I was forced to use the 3G/GPRS connection.


I have seen some other people with the same problem, but does anyone know if there is a fix (apart from disabling the mobile connection) or if the problem will be solved in an upcoming firmware release?


Many thanks,
