I'm not really sure I understand what problem this is fixing. I have a problem with my wifi that I want to check with you first. Mine is basically where the wifi turns itself off when I go out of range of a connected router for a few minutes . When I come back in range of the router I have to manually turn wifi back on before it will connect back to the wifi. This is despite having the sleep policy set to never so I have no idea why wifi won't stay on. I don't want to install this without understanding the issue a bit more first!

Thanks
Shane

"WiFi Manager has been granted Superuser permissions."

Any suggestions... am I missing something?

Have you tried fixing permission first incase ur Su or binaries are out dated? Or maybe not.

I don't think that this application can solve your problem. Sorry

WiFix simply changes the WiFi country code which might be set incorrectly (?) in IceCream Sandwich builds when SIM-Card is inserted.

If your phone can't find WiFi networks or can't connect to them unless you remove the SIM-Card then you're affected.

Very useful for me if I am traveling back home, or visiting family in NZ or AUS. Thank's for posting this.

I would suggest you put in the app introduction to explain in an easier:

"If wifi is working fine in Gingerbread roms, but does not when flashing/upgarding to IceCreamSanwich, then this app will try to fix it!"

Thanks, but someone here stated that he has the same issue with GB, I sent him a PM and am waiting for the response to see if it's a WiFi country code related thing or something else.
