Is it just me or do you find the wifi strength to be really poor?

My friend was at my house last night and his htc incredible said full signal and mine said 1 bar

Does software affect anything?

Nope but the signal strength is poorly indicated bars mean little if you have no bars and full strength signal .
Use speedtest.net to measure .

Yes I also noticed that when the signal is poor but the device is connected, the connection is blend but solid..
But the GS2 receiver is 1/3 than the receiver of the desire HD
I noticed some improvement with KF2 baseband imho the best receiver and the minor battery drainer for the device

I didn't say "issue" but that i've noticed that the power of the GS2 wifi receiver is minor in confront of the DesireHD receiver
Imho it is the only sin of this fanstastic, strongest device

Yeah, I also have poor wi-fi signal, regularly 1 or 2 bars less than iphone 4 or even my old htc desire. Sometimes this will happen even if I stand barely 2 feet away from the router. But the connection is always solid, when it's there.

Right....if the connection start, don't worry is will be rock solid
But, often the problem is catch the connection when the signal is poor

Well as long as it works (mine does, flawlessly), I really couldn't care less about how many bars are displayed.

The wifi strenght sucks on my SGII too..

I was used to surf from my room , even with my iPod touch 3g (only B/G), but the SGII takes just one bar of signal and doesen't work, and that's strange considering that it supports B/G/N...
