Hei.I flashed this rom from kpq.but the wi-fi was horrible.I couldn't even connect .Super slow. And decided to flash back to kpq.And now the wi-fi problem si still there. I flashed different roms to try to solve the problem but no succes.
Now my wi-fi either crashes or tryes to connect,loads a part of the site and crashes after.

What to do?

But what can it be? :|
could it be a phone defect?
I never had this problem until i flashed cm7

Continue @q&a thread please.
I shall answer nevertheless, first try fresh flash XXKPE + XXKPQ.
If it doesn't work then search around a bit , there is a solution by using Static IP. Try that.
Otherwise, cya @q&a thread.

Tested and flashed to latest update. +Applied GPS fix of Namaless

-3G upload and download animations in Statusbar still not functional. Data is transferred/Flows in but no animation :)
- DSP partially works (known)
- Equalizer recognizes presets, but FCs when one tries to change it. (I enabled - Equalizer and change to Bass Booster. Suddenly DSP began to FC) <- Can be fixed by factory reset OR reflashing of zip, I guess.
- Camera works, Video recording doesn't FC, but still opens (known)
- BLN works
- Haven't tested Titanium Backup

That's what I have observed so far. :) Good job! Hope that you can squash them bugs! :)

Gonna stay in this ROM for now. :)

    I started this thread to continue codeworkx work he started for porting the CM7 to Galaxy SL.

    the old thread that codeworkx started can be found here
    [NO NOOBS][ROM][2.3.7][GWK74] CyanogenMod 7 for Samsung Galaxy SL

    All credits are reserved for codeworkx and any one whom was working or is working on this port

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Latest release 24.1.2012 :
    https://rapidshare.com/files/3198315351/update-cm-7.1.0-GalaxySL-KANG-signed.zip

    • video playback fix
    • updated the kernel to UC v8
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Summary for this project :
    First of all this project is still under development and it can't be considered as stable.

    What is working in this port :
    1. Calls and sms
    2. 3G
    3. GPU
    4. Audio
    5. Wifi
    6. Internal & external sdcards
    7. Bluetooth
    8. Touchscreen
    9. Camera
    10. vibration
    11. video playback
    What is buggy and not working in a good shape:

    1. DSP manager (seems to work after reinstalling it, http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=20222709&postcount=161) ( thanks goes to tanmayrocks )
    2. GPS
    What is not working :
    1. Video recording
    2. Hotspot
    3. Tethering
    4. Applications that require mic can't use the mic

    Any feature that is not listed here it's not tested yet and it might be working

    Install instruction:
    INSTRUCTIONS:

    - First time flashing CM 7 to your Galaxy SL (or coming from another ROM)?

    Install a Kernel with ClockworkMod Recovery (any one should work).

    Reboot into Recovery
    Do a Nandroid backup!
    Install the ROM from sdcard using ClockworkMod Recovery
    Optionally install the Google Addon


    - Upgrading from earlier CM7?

    Do a Nandroid Backup!
    Install the ROM (your Google apps will be backed up automatically)
    Optionally install the Google Addon (might get lost during update)


    There are no Google Apps bundled with CM ROMs, because Google asked Cyanogen to remove copyrighted apps, after flashing rom don't forget to flash Google Addon package if you want it.

    NOTE: Your device will be fully converted to EXT4, except for the efs partition. You'll lose all data on the first install!

    hello guys am partially back on CM7 but i will mainly be working with dhiru1602 on CM9, i will keep working on both projects but i will give CM9 more time we are trying to get the camera working on CM9 and then port the 3.0 kernel to it.

    thank you guys :)

    :D good news guys camera bugs are all fixed but one , the overlay rotation have some bugs and i think it's gonna be fixed easily since i got what is the wrong with it.

    front and back camera are fully working(capturing, previewing and all the other features) preview now is working after capturing a picture and it won't freez anymore.

    to night i will try again to work on the rotation bug hopefully it's gonna be fixed, tomorrow i will upload the new changes with a new release

    ps: this don't include the video recording.

    thank you all.

    - RIL patches are on teamhacksungs private github
    - touchscreen driver needs to be updated
    - kernel needs to be upgraded for data usage tracking
    - kernel needs to be upgraded for mtp / new usb gadget
    - sound wrapper for legacy audio is ready, but will probably not work because of samsungs abi breakage
    - no hw composer
    - no camera
    - no video hw codecs
    - wifi might work
    - bluetooth might work
    - gps might work

    pretty useless. ;-)
    hope TI will release the necessary sources for the omap3 platform soon.
    then it might be possible to get the camera working.
    but sound....
