Re: Wifi throws me out every 2 minutes.Nook Color

It has not been a major problem yet, BUT I have noted that regularly my new NookColor connects and then disconnects several times before establishing a good WiFi connection--and this has been true in several different places, most with strong WiFi signals as measured on my laptop computer.

 

Once this initial period of off/on/off/on is over, the signal seems to be stable indefinitely.

When I first saw the title of this thread I read it as WIFE and I thought, these folks need some serious marriage counseling.

Re: Wifi throws me out every 2 minutes.Nook Color

My regualr Nook used to do this and I thought it would be impossible to connect for more than  a minute or two.  Then I realized that if I wasn't actively using it - shopping,  updating, etc.  it would disconnect.  So I couldn't just turn on Wifi and get lost reading for a bit and expect it to be on when I decided to shop again.   I don't have a Nook Color so this may not be your issue but I thought I'd throw it out there.
