Unhappy Wifi works great until I use Facebook

Please Login to Remove!

Ok, I know this is going to sound weird. But I have an unlocked 9550 on Rogers. The wifi will work with all other apps such as BBM, Ubertwitter, Viigo and the browser just fine. If I open and use (post, reply etc) Facebook, the wifi not only disconnects, but shuts off completely. When I go to manage connections and try to turn it back on, it tells me it is "unable to turn on wifi". I then have to do a reboot for wifi to come back on again.

I have tested this on multiple OS versions and its common on all of them. This tells me its either a hardware or a software (FB) issue.

Any other GSM 9550 users care to confirm this for me please?

I've confirmed this on multiple wifi networks.

Anyone test it for me?
