I've never had a problem, but then I always have Wifi turned on with "Power Saving" (Wifi scanning Off) enabled.  This setting is found on the Wifi page by selecting the menu (Right Hand soft at bottom of Wifi page) then choosing "Settings".

Thanks, I'll leave mine on from now on, the main reason for the post was a FYI for others who encounter this.

No problem.

I wondered why you were turning your WiFi off as I could see no reason to do so. Then it occurred to me if you had WiFi scanning turned on you might be doing it to save battery, hence the tip on enabling Power Saving.
