I originally had a belkin wifi router which i used when the device had the wifi problems but upgraded to a netgear router and have not had connection issues with my sgp4.0 since then. I tried connecting to several other networks on campus which I knew had belkin routers similar to mine and the problem occurred so I jumped to the conclusion it was because of my old belkin router. I can't seem to come up with a better explanation for the issue. Basucally a good thing to do is take it to different hotspots and see if you have issues with them because it may be a router issue
There's that too, it's like what I tell people when I see them looking at wireless routers at walmart (locally) Bottom Shelf (Belkin) is crap, Middle Shelf (Netgear) is decent and Top Shelf (Linksys) is best, I'm so glad that even the local walmart can lay out the shelves by quality in atleast one place, LOL.
