Possibly a hardware problem?
Looks like it. Preplus gets strong signal, even out at my mailbox , but with Pre2 I gotta sit next to modem.Thanks tho... it all happened when I installed preware etc & thought i screwed somthn up. Did run the system quick test and it says "code 25 wifi issue, contact Palm" but if i sit next to the modem (with all bars) and run the quick test, it says everythings good w a big blue check? A few others in forums havin same issue but no answers. Oh well, a couple people said to try the WebOs doc.
