Sweet, I owe you a beer for the help!

You are right, once you get your head around a few things it's not that hard.

So much for leaving it alone lol....
Flashed Leedroid to what that is like. Instantly WiFi at work is fine again.
However it's a 2.2 based ROM. A few days of GB and I don't want to go back... Think I'll hunt out that oxygen one. What have I started? lol

Cheers for that. Slow day at work so flashed Oxygen. And WiFi no go...
I'm beginning to think there's something weird in these GB ROMs that disagrees with works WiFi

I really really like GB so might look at more.
Also when the Desire stock GB comes out OTA I might unroot and upgrade to that and see if it still does it.

The desire gingerbread will still be very different to what your experiencing with oxygen or redux because they are AOSP roms.

Yeah, just trying to work out what the WiFi issue could be, and if it's GB or the modded GB ROMs. So far it's only an issue here at work.

BTW Oxygen is nice, the auto brightness issues is much much less. It actually adjusts after a few seconds whereas Redux wouldn't

If wifi isn't working, make sure you have the latest radio.
Also try Cyanogenmod, i switched from Oxygen to it, and i love how it has all these extra useful features but is still just as smooth and clean.

I have the latest radio. WiFi works at home and the neighbours, but not here at work on Redux and Oxygen
Will give Cyanogenmod a go

I found the latest version of CM7 really good, still a bit to hacked up for my taste (or modified) i kind of like the stock AOSP feel... But a well supported ROM

Did you see my video of it also?

just flashed CM7. Same deal on WiFi. Can't see the router here.
So that's 3 GB ROMs that do it. Sensing a trend here!

Yea its going to be a hidden SSID issue. it needs to be unhidden first then connect then hide it again but of course means you have to access the router settings... Otherwise you can try one of the WIFI apps on the market like WIFI Manager or something to try connect.

This is off the Oxygen thread at XDA...



*** Hi guys for those of you having problems with Hidden SSID, i managed to well have a temporary fix. First connect on a visible SSID. Once your phone is connected, make your SSID invisible again. It connects fine then.  Hope it helps! ***

Ah ok, weird that it seems to only be a GB issue.
I will see if I can find an app that works around it as I doubt very much I'll be able to get into the router settings

On CM7 now. Struggling to find the settings to alter the buttons in the notifications folder. I'm sure they were easier to find in Redux! lol
