It happened to me today.

I connected. I surfed for a bit, but the the network just stopped. The WiFi indicator was still on. The WiFi Analyzer app showed that my network was coming in loud and clear.
But as far as any internet app was concerned, there was no network connectivity.

Turning WiFi off and back on corrected the problem for me.

I am using 802.11g, WPA-TKIP, Linksys router/access point.

My A101 was doing that before, but since I changed my router to only channel 6, I haven't had any issues with my WiFi being dropped.

My router is using dual-band 2.4GHz & 5GHz, G/N. Haven't had any issues with that at all.

That's a good point. Maybe its interference on my channel. I might start experimenting with other channels.

Tis app is really good. Great for looking at the wifi around your area and helping to choose the best available and avoid channel conflict.
