Are you absolutely positive this is being caused by the phone? Or maybe the router is what might be defective? Have you tried to connect another wireless device to your router also to make sure it's not only the Bold?

Dude I have Verizon FiOS and mine works just fine. I have my PS3 and my Mac all on the wireless. And my mom's computer works just fine which is connected straight to it. Call Verizon, your box maybe defected.
I thought I was crazy too, but I had the same issue. Verizon FIOS router - I have 9 different wireless device connected for several months, connect my Bold and then randomly I get the entire connection dying (even my wired LAN connection). Turning off WiFi on the Bold fixes things...crazy, huh?
I'm trying the new wireless channel. Will report back if it works.
my 9900 does this, no amount of fiddling on the phone or router has helped so far, I have plenty of other devices (laptops pcs/macs, printers, ipads, androids, television, voip, etc) on my wifi with no issues. The second I connect the bold to the wifi, the entire house grinds to a halt. I've given up trying, it's too slow to attempt to browse the web on anyway ;-)
I've tried to set the channel to a preset instead of 'auto' on the wireless router setting now. Let's see if i can connect afterwards to confirm it helped ;-)
It's pretty annoying, as only my blackberry causes this freeze of the router.. Other devices and my previous blackberry did never cause any problems.. Very frustrating as this is yet another thing that annoys me about the blackberry.
