Is there anything I can do to improve wi-fi connectivity in a small area (three rooms) when dealing with a large number of other signals? I'm in a high-rise apartment building in a city; after letting inSSIDer run for a while, it shows that I'm competing with 125 other access points. My signal is okay in the first room, fair in the second room, and unusable in the third room. I'm using DD-WRT -- are there any settings I can tweak that might help? [more inside]
My phone connects to my home wifi network but won't load webpages/get internet. How can I fix this? Also, can anyone confirm that this won't be a hardware issue? There's a short window in which I could possibly exchange the phone, but I'd rather not if it's not a flaw in the phone. [more inside]

Is there an Android app that will automatically switch on mobile data when I can't access the internet through the wifi connection?
I'm looking for an Android wifi manager app for my HTC Sensation 4G with a specific feature. When my phone thinks it's connected to a wifi network, it automatically turns off mobile data, which makes sense, as long as it's actually connected. Unfortunately, sometime there's something wrong with the wifi connection or the connection is really crappy, and I can't actually access the internet through it. This means that unless I go turn off wifi, I can't access the internet at all. Is there an app that will automatically switch on mobile data when I can't access the internet through the wifi connection?

Can't access my wifi. Both my Dell & iPhone show it's available, & it worked earlier this morning, but now, not only doesn't it default me in, but if I request access it doesn't recognize my PW. This doesn't make sense to me. What are my next steps? Thanks
Time to get a new smartphone, and I'll have a data contract for the first time. I'm a power user of computers, who carries 2k+ contacts and appointments around, and occasionally programs my own apps (what we oldtimers used to call "programs"). I'm really attracted to the dual screen of the Kyocero Echo, but it's 3G-only. I don't intend to tether/hotspot my phone. Will I miss the 4G, a/o "limitless" data plans?

Please please help me. Macbook pro wifi keeps going in and out at home. Used to be fine, now disconnects and says: "searching for network" WHILE the wifi bar says full bars and connected. I think it has to do with either network setting or the weird location thing. Here is a picture of my issue: Picture of wifi issue Somehow, the wifi is fine, but I am no longer connected to the internet. internet works fine at other peoples houses, just my house and certain cafes this problem of "searching" for the internet emerges while the wifi bars stay on full. Have tried rebooting computer, router etc. Thank you for any suggestions.

I have a Samsung Captivate smartphone with a rate plan and data plan. If I were to cancel my AT&T contract (and pay the required fee, of course), could the phone continue to be used to access the Web via Wi-Fi to sync my Google calendar/contacts/e-mail, surf the Web, and run Web-enabled apps? Would I lose anything else besides telephone and 3G data capabilities?

My husband and I are visiting Korea soon. Is the famous WiFi in Korea ubiquitous enough to use his iPhone 4 for web browsing and Skype? We're also renting an SKTelecom cellphone, but we'd like to use the iPhone for data-related tasks and travel apps. Is it just a matter of his iPhone jumping on any Wifi network (without incurring any roaming charges)? We're coming from the US (AT&T), and staying in Jeju and Seoul. [more inside]
What's a newer Android phone on t-mob where you can use a wifi-sharing program (a common one that I've seen free online) to create a wi-fi hotspot?

I'm assuming that said phone would have an option for an unlimited data plan.
