I am sick of this problem as well. Nothing seems to be working. The PB was working superb for the past 2 months and I don't have a clue what triggered this problem all of a sudden. I also upgraded the OS to the latest version of the software 378v but still no solutions. I am surprised that my wife's Samsung 7.7 has no problems what so ever!!! I guess the Android is a better system after all??

My PB's wifi always had an occational drop. Two days ago after a router reboot due to a power outage the PB connection drops constantly. All my other wireless devices work fine only the PB fails. The connection is still there, three of the four bars green, but none of the applications that require wifi work. I can turn the wireless off then on and thats good for 1 web page, but apps like AppWorld are completly unusable. I have tried every solution suggested here and in Crackberry forums to no avail.
Right now my PB is just a very expensive solitaire game and that game has bugs! I guess I'll shelve the PB and monitor for the next OS release (currently using 22.214.171.1248) and see RIM finds a cure.

By channels do you mean network type 802.11_? I tried switching from b/g/n to b/g to just b and to just g. None worked. Did you mean something different? Thanks for your suggestion.

I replaced my router with an old Belkin router that I had decommisioned many month ago and that fixed the problem. The question remains. Why after all this time of working fine in my environment did the PB started loosing the connection? Nothing was changed. How long will the PB work with this old Belkin router before it stops working again. I don't see myself buying a new router every time PB gets tired of working with a router.
Thank you all that tried helping I appreciate it.

I had the same problem .. What i did worked .. I rang my isp and told them the problem and said i was going to connect my pb manually to the network so needed the proxy port and http settings and did it that way .. Perfect for me give it a try
