    Wifi shuts off by itself for no apparently reason. When you go back into the options it kicks back on. Kind of annoying!

    I think that is to do with the energy efficiency built into the new firmware. If there's no data traffic detected it powers down to conserve battery life. When it detects you need connectivity it powers up again. There's an unfortunate latency in this process which is probably compensated for in new handsets with always on higher speed data link over 3G, but not in 2G ones unfortunately.

    edit:: I would not go as far to say that this is a bug in the Pwnage Tool.

    Anyone can prove this. I only noticed afted QuickPWNing.

    Get the ip address of your phone, go to a pc on the same network then do a

    ping 192.168.103.x -t (ip of the phone)

    Watch until the phone goes dark and about 10 seconds after darking out the WIFI will drop and it will use 3g.

    This **** needs fixed ASAP.

    Install Insomnia if you want it to stay up. How do you know this is a pwnage bug and not standard 2.0.1 or 2.0.2 behaviour?

    I am going to verify that as soon as my co-worker arrives, as he has an untouched 2.0.2 firmware.

    This isn't a bug.

    My iPhone has done this since last year when I was on 1.0.2.

    Wifi stops working when the phone goes to sleep. It kicks back in when the phone is woken up or it needs to auto-check emails.

    I second the fact that the iPhone has always shut down the WiFi connection after you put the phone asleep.. It's done this since I bought the original 2g iPhone last year on LAUNCH day!

    Guys, this wasnt when my phone was sleeping, it was while I was using it. The wifi just stops getting signal, and I have to go into settings. I dont actually touch anything in settings, just going in kicks it back in. Im going to try a restore of the network settings again, and a full restore if need be.

    Why is it so annoying? It automatically reconnects. Instead of unlocking and being on a heart attack course to use wifi, give it 2 or 3 seconds tops and it will connect automatically. In fact, opening Safari might actually make it connect faster.

    No I think there is a bug

    I have the 1st gen phone and all was fine until I tried to use 2.0.3.
    I was at 2.0.1 then did the upgrade via itunes to 2.0.2. I lost cydia but nothing was wrong. Then I jailbroke my phone with 2.0.3 and lost wifi. updated to and tried to restore and still nothing. It does not even see the networks. I did a restore to the regular 2.0.2 that locked it again and ran quickpwn. still no wifi. I guess I have to wait for 2.0.4. unless anyone knows how to fix it again.
