I have a weird problem and cannot figure out whats happening. My android Alcatel Onetvouch phone cannot detect any wifi signals at home. I was able to connect very well before but it suddenly stopped. Now i dont see even my neighbours signal. But did before. Here's the confusing part- when Im at work, or ball park or library, or Cricket wireless store it will show up all available wifis. But when Im home..nothing is showing up. My wife's phone works normal and is able to show all available wifi at home. Laptop etc are also showing wifi. Only my cell phone appears to have a wifi restriction when I'm home. Tried every solution - reset, airplane mode, upgrade android version, wifi app etc etc. No solution and its be bugging me. Thanks very much for your tip.

But you can take it out and it works everywhere except your own home but your wife's works? That's really weird because I'd normally suspect environmental issues - microwaves and all that. How near to your property can you pick up a signal from anywhere?

Totally weird right? My neighbours are about 20 ft away. I should try that. When Im home my wifi or my neighbours wifi does not show up. But else where Wifi is picked up. If Im home..say 2 foot from the modem then i get the signal. If i take 4 steps away..nothing!
