galaxy tab losing internet connection
Have samsung galaxy tab, 7". Upgraded the firmware to gingerbread recently 2.3. Since then it keeps dropping my internet connection, don't think it is a problem with router as sony phone does not drop nor does laptop. Any suggestions? Did see an app you can download from google play which is to help keep your wifi but not sure if it is good.

My 10.1 runs on Honeycomb and I have no problems. Can you not upgrade to Honeycomb instead of Gingerbread?

Not with a Samsung firmware as they have said that they wouldn't be offering ICS (or Honeycomb) for the original Tab.
So you need a custom Rom, and not everyone wants to or is capable of doing this.

connect to wifi then go to wifi settings
click menu button the choose advanced
check the "static IP"
if that will not work.. try to change the last number of your IP Address (ex from 1 to 2) and check the "static IP" address again...
this MIGHT work for you BUT you will need to UNCHECK the static IP address each time you are going to use different wifi connection coz it might not work to other's connection..
try it and i'd be glad to hear if it works for you... good luck!
