I've just upgraded to the latest Relax ROM and it all seems OK apart from I think the wifi does not always connect.  I don't broadcast my SSID and use WPA2.  I had to alter the router to broadcast it and then the Eken connected fine.  But after switching it back to not broadcasting and then turning off and on the Eken it does not always connect.  Is there a way around this without having to broadcast my SSID ?

You could try an app called HiddenSSID Enabler by Jun Suzuki. Although to be honest as long as you're using MAC filtering and at the very least WPA-PSK with a nice long key then you should be pretty safe. Hiding the SSID won't really add any security but it does cause problems with some devices that legitimately need access to your network (for one reason or another).

yeah I use MAC address lockdown and also WPA2. I've decided to set the SSID to broadcast and it picks it up now. I also upped my TX rate as recommended by LinuxLover.
