I tried some stuff I found about sleep policy. I obviously tried setting it to Never, I tried the Wi-Fi keep alive app, it doesn't seem to work.

When I let the phone lie for a few minutes and then wake it, the wifi icon is grey and i cannot connect to anything right away, I have to wait till it turns green. This also messes up my GTalk, plenty of times i found out someone wrote to me only by manually opening the Talk app and waiting for it to sync (there was the red unconnected line at the bottom).

How do I fix this?

I have Nexus S, if that helps. Thank you

I read that question, but it didn't provide sufficient answer and I wasn't sure it's exactly what I mean, so I rather started a new one – Martin Melka Nov 14 '11 at 16:32

I was frustrated for a long time with the same problem. An app called Wifi Fixer seems to have fixed it. Hope that helps you too.

Just an additional note... the problem went away with an OS upgrade, so Wifi Fixer is no longer needed, at least in my experience. – Questioner Feb 11 '12 at 10:00
