Motorola Droid X Problems: Poor WiFi Connection?

By Alan Ng - Jul 22, 2010

We have yet more problems for the Motorola Droid X to share with you now, as it has been reported that some users are experiencing weak WiFi connections when using their Droid X with a router.

According to this report from BGR, the problem is not thought to be widespread at the moment, as it appears to be only affecting a small group of handset owners.

Furthermore, it looks as if a few possible fixes to the problem have also been found. These include changing the encryption from AES to TKIP, which will help to increase your WiFi signal, while a further router setting change to 802.11g instead of 802.11n will also help you.

Firstly, let us know if you have been experiencing this problem or not. If so, give the above steps a try and see if it helps for you. You can keep track of the latest updates on this issue over at DroidForums.

    Traded my HTC Incredible for the Droid X. Starting to wonder if that was a good move. The Incredible was flawless and well engineered. The X is starting to remind me of Windows Vista when it first came out = Don't have the bugs worked out but shipped anyhow. The volume sucks, my wifi freezes up even though it shows connected at full strength and the GPS is buggy.

    Motorola needs to address more than the screen issue that they couldn't deny because of pictures. Step up to your responsibilities, the phone was advertized as a "Man's" phone…be a "Man's" company and get this thing right. You got the hardware right now fix the firmware!

    I noticed the wifi problem on the first day, when the 3g data service went down for about an hour on Friday night, constant signal dropping. Today I used an unencrypted wifi connection at work to get album art for the Cubed player, it kept sticking until I turned off wifi. I'm not going to cripple my router for my phone, so I hope Moto does something about this (and eFuse!). Still love my Droid X though.
