I asked this question some time ago on another forum but never received an answer. I'm hoping that I may get a better answer here.

The wireless network at my university is a bit shaky and I was wondering if there is a way to disable Pairwise Master Key Caching under 2.3.3. This seems to have fixed the problem on my laptop. I am rooted and can edit configuration files if needed. Thanks!

Not sure which OS runs on your Laptop, but Android uses the wpa_supplicant for WiFi authentication. If wpa_supplicant provides a way to disable the cache, you will have to configure it in the /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf configuration file.

Thanks Flow. My laptop is running Windows 7. I checked the wpa_supplicant on my phone and that network is currently set for PEAP. Should I try something else? – user1063005 Nov 25 '11 at 0:52
