Many of us are having Wifi issues I was hoping that we can compile a list of issues and compare the circumstances with the people who have their wifi working okay.

If we can get enough input from people who do not have any issues then we may be able to narrow down the problem to incompatible routers or the phone manufacture date.

I got me a case from T-Mobile hoping that it may help with the issue but it totally killed the wifi.

Please post the following info
- approximate date you bought the phone
- router you are using
- having issue or not (Death Grip?)


----EDIT----

Conclusion 1 : so far it looks like N routers are doing better. I'll compile the list and post here as soon as we have enough data.

Conclusion 2 : Phones built in May seem to be death grip free.

Bought the phone yesterday, build date (inside battery cover) - 2011/05/25, Asus RT-N56U router. Absolutely no wifi issues here, what death-grip...... Even at the furthest point in the house away from the router and touching near the camera in landscape mode I only manage to drop one bar, otherwise full wifi signal.
