I like SkyRaider for sense based, runs the smoothest in my opinion.

There has been no issue with wifi for me on any sense 3.5 rom.

If you're thinking about trying a non-sense, or desensed rom, try airborne or happy trails. both of those roms are awesome, smooth, and as far as my use goes, i have yet to experience issues with either of them, everything works.

Okay folks I decided to leave Eternity and try Liquid Smooth. This AOSP was great in the beginning but then I notice my battery wasn't as good. I decided to go bank to Sense ROM. So far Gingeritis 3S v1.2 with Sense 3.0 is working great! I'll hang with this one for a bit.

Any 3.5 sense rom I am on always causes me to intermittently drop wifi. It just drops the connection, refreshes and is back in a few seconds. I have seen posts about it on the different posts for the roms so I know its not just me. I have tried wi-fi lock, advanced wi-fi lock and others with no luck. I just accepted it as part of the rom and moved on with it. I loved the sense 3.5 rom, look and all but eventually got annoyed at the drops.

Gingeritis is a great rom, I've used it before. The only reason I left it was because of the VVM I needed to have. I flashed the zip that was posted as a fix but every time it would cause me to somehow break my access to the Mik settings lol. If its not one thing its another!!

Enjoy it, great rom!!

This doesn't directly answer your question, but if you are looking to extend battery life you could try an app like "Battery Defender". It is very simple, reliable, and easy to use. It works by turning off your data connection when the screen is off (Data is the single biggest drain on a phone after the screen). Turning off data does NOT prevent you from getting txt's or phone calls, they would come through as always. Using this more than doubles my battery life, and is almost unnoticeable otherwise.

You can't go wrong with sense 3.5, but right now I'm trying out ODJDub HD. It's a great rom besides the charging problem

I have read that some of the wifi drop issues are actually due to some peoples routers not playing nice with sense 3.5. There are some routers that just don't work well with it for some reason no matter what kind of app you use to try and fix it. What brand router do you use?
