    Just did the update to my Gen 1 iphone, everything had been pretty much fine before, but now after the 2.2 update, the WIFI is showing mostly 1 BAR, 1 Tick on the bottom. I am sitting NEXT to the router, and it shows only 1 TICK.

    Anyone else see this, is there some radio adjustment for this version?

    Maybe try power-cycling your iPhone
    and perhaps also your router....

    I don't have that issue. But I am having a problem where some key presses don't seem to bring up the letters that "pop out." anyone got that one?

    Oh, and battery life is out of this world now. I can use it all day and the battery hardly depletes.

    I tried doing the power cycle of the iphone and router before posting. This is really wierd, everything else is pretty normal, but the WIFI seems really weak.

    My wifi hasn't changed. Still gets fully signal all the around my house really.
    If it still connects on 1 bar of signal and is causing no problems then don't worry about it :p :)

    I'm showing two bars from right next to the router.

    I also had to re-boot the router to even get a signal.
