A lot of people have been asking me for this so hopefully this will satisfy everyone.

If you don't already know, HTC programmed their Gingerbread ROMs to drop wifi connections if the signal falls below -88dBm. I'm not sure why they did that because -88dBm is a perfectly usable signal. With this fix, your wifi connection won't drop until the signal falls below -108dBm.

Select the correct version for your ROM and flash through Clockwork Recovery.


If you appreciate my work, donations of any amount are very much appreciated.
thx man nice to put it in a thread for all

100% confirmation

I can tell you I've been thinking something is wrong for weeks didn't realise it was caused by me moving to GB. This fix works 100% I'm back on wireless where I get a real weak signal in the office.

Thanks man!!!!:D

I noticed it immediately when I first flashed a Gingerbread Sense ROM a few weeks ago. My router is in my basement so wifi was practically unusable in some areas of my house. I spent a whole day researching, looking through code, and trying everything under the sun (including changing settings on my router lol) just to get this fixed. I've actually had the fix for a couple weeks now but just recently realized that all Gingerbread Sense ROMs have the issue.

You tell me. If it drops you'll see the wifi indicator go away and the 3G/H data indicator pop up.
