Default AHD drops wifi on stock and custom ROMs

I have an AHD and I have had this problem for a while. When on stock or custom ROMs, the phone will suddenly drop the wifi connection. Sometimes, it will re-connect right away, other times, it takes a bit. Once it re-connects, it will either stay connected for a few minutes and drop again or it will connect and immediately drop it. It didn't bother me too much but it seems to be getting worse.

I'm running the latest Bell radio (mb886_bp_100740.071.65.61p).

Anyone else have this issue?

Edit: does the same thing with the latest retail Mexico radio too.

I'm not sure how much diggin you did or what you've read on this issue, but after about a half hour i found a thread that may help you. It seems to have helped others with this same issue:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2469104&page=3

Then.... not sure if this will help your situation, but it's woth a shot. Wifi-fix.zip or something, I've used it before for a similar issue:

Thanks for the links. The solutions offered don't help. I have WiFi, it just drops randomly at times.

I'll be putting the ahd away and switch to using my backup Samsung phone.

I have used the above fix for intermittent WiFi connectivity problems just like yours.

I just loaded the att radio from stock 4.1.1 ROM for testing. I'll let you know how it goes.

Thanks again for your help.

Edit: The AT&T modem seems to have really helped. I surfed continuously for 40 minutes and it never dropped the wifi signal

Download the stock ATT 4.1.1 ROM and extract the file named NON-HLOS.BIN using 7zip.

1) install the adb/fastboot files to a single directory on my computer;
2) place the NON-HLOS.bin file in the adb/fastboot directory from step 1;
3) open a command prompt window as an administrator;
4) install the Motorola USB drivers and connect my booted phone with USB debugging enabled;
5) from the command line, type "adb reboot bootloader" and press the enter key to get my phone into AP Fastboot Flash mode;
6) from the command line, type "fastboot flash modem NON-HLOS.bin" and press enter; and
7) reboot the phone and check to made sure my baseband now says "QUINARA_BP_100740.081.65.05".

I have to say that it helped but the problem did reappear. I then decided to flash a complete stock ATT 4.1.1 ROM again, I ran the OTA update which updated the modem again, and wifi has been fine since the OTA update.
