I have a 2G Iphone jailbroken/unlocked with quickpwn running 2.2. Everything working great until a couple of days ago wifi started acting up. The phone sees wireless networks, seems to join for a few seconds but cannot stay connected. Just drops the wifi after about 15seconds even though it is still showing a good signal.
I turned security off on one of the routers and it does not matter.
I restored 2.2 and re jailbroke and unlocked (cydia/installer/unlock) using quickpwn on PC. Exact same problem.
Any suggestions?? I did see a post to maybe restore to 1.1.4 then back to 2.2 and rerun quickpwn.
Thanks for the help.

Try these one by one
*Forget the network/turn wifi off,turn it back on/Select the network again
*On router,use Wpa or Wpa2 instead of Web
*On router use 64bit instead of 128bit security
*Reset&reboot your router
*Reboot your phone
*Renew lease on your phone

I seem to got it figured out:
We have 3 iphones in the house. For some reason if my iphone connects to the wireless network before my husbands, his will not connect. However, if I disconnect mine and then connect his he stays on just fine. I can then reconnect. Crazy but it works.
