I have had 8120 and 8820 and could recieve a wifi signal from my homes ... General Blackberry forum
WIFI signal strength on the 8220 seems to be weak
I have had 8120 and 8820 and could recieve a wifi signal from my homes router from distances up to 50 yards when outside in yard. With the 8820 I could recieve a signal from the neighbors router. I just bought a new 8220 and very dissappointed in the wifi
signal strength. I have some saved Wi-Fi profiles saved on the 8820 and tranferred them to the 8220 but the new 8220 can't find them unless I get real close to the locations. Is anybody having same problem. Does RIMM use same wifi radios in all BB phones or do some models have better wifi recievers?
What OS are you running on the new 8220... That can affect its ability to pick up wifi signal...

188.8.131.52 os with a WLAN version: 184.108.40.206 on my 8220 flip
my 8820 is running v220.127.116.11 and WLAN version 18.104.22.168
The 8820 picks up a wifi signal 4 times farther than the 8220 flip
I am running v22.214.171.124 0n my 8220 and have noticed a improvement in WiFi range. WLAN version 126.96.36.199
Wiped OS and Installed v188.8.131.52 WLAN v184.108.40.206 I will post back if I see any improvement in WI FI range. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.Thanks
good luck man... waiting on your results...
