[SGSII Owners Look Here] Severe Problem- Wifi dropping even when it shows it's connected (w/ Video)

Numerous people are having this issue, my two SGSII included:

"I've had two Galaxy S II phones now, and I've had the same problem with both devices. The phone's wifi is great -- when it works. Although I noticed that the death grip lowers the wifi signal bar, I can still browse the internet and download apps just fine. 

The problem is that, at times, the phone will show wifi connectivity and yet, I can't browse the internet or access the App Store. I'll have to shut off the wifi multiple times and even this doesn't work 100% of the time. Shutting off the phone and turning it back on works 100% of the time.

Since this has happened to two phones, I'm beginning to question whether I have an issue with the wireless router because I have not come across this as a prevalent issue. At the same time, my laptop and a family member's iphone doesn't have the same issue."

I have the same wifi issue.  I am returning my phone due to:

1) the lock bug

2) the ap mobile widget bug

3) wifi drop even with full signal.

 

so sad, good while it lasted.
