Default Wifi dropping on custom roms

I have a problem with custom roms, I have the SGY Duos.. with customs roms, my wifi randomly disconnects or drops. though it says it is connected there are no internet data coming, I cant browse, youtube or whatever. i have to toggle the wifi off then on again just to get the internet working again but it is annoying, sometimes it drops in the middle of my downloads or while watching videos. I don't have this problem when I am using stock rom, wifi works perfectly on stock.. Any Ideas how to fix this or what is causing the problem? I really like custom roms but I cant tolerate the wifi problems

(the only customs I only tried so far are XDuos by Kenjboy and EvoX 2.1 by b16h22 though it is less on EvoX but the problem still persist. I also use Compact Kernel v1.2.6)

make sure wifi sleep is disabled in wifi advanced settings

goto wifi settings
press menu button on phone
select advanced
find wifi sleep policy
set to never


if that doesnt work its a problem with your rom/kernel if it works fine on stock rom

you may have a wifi script in etc/init.d or a build.prop entry that is causing it then
