    automatic way of turning wifi on ? tasker ?

    with the GN i have fair at best reception at home. I need a way for the GN to know im home (or my home wifi avail) and for the GN to automatically connect to it. i dont want to turn on wifi and have to shut it off when i leave the house.

    i cant think of any other way of doing this unless GPS is on (location based profile and tasker turns it on for me) or to leave my wifi on all the time. it kills the bad battery life i get now...

    ideas ?

    I tried Tasker but the learning curve is VERY steep. And the Wiki doesn't really help much. It seems a lot easier being able to download the tasks and profiles and simply import them. Might have to try it again.

    I have not tried Tasker but on Juice Defender, It will learn over time your home location wifi and toggle radio appropriately. It does not work with the free version (Plus & Ultimate only). You might give it a shot. It really does give me more battery time in sleep states. YMMV.

    You can try Y5 (Y5 Battery Saver: Home). Never used it myself, but heard it works.

    tasker is tough at first, im no pro by any means but its a powerful tool. it takes me weeks to do what some of you can do in minutes with it but i like the app. i think i have it working with the Wifi now.

    update, tasker worked perfectly this am. it shut the wifi off about 1/2 mile from the house and turned the wifi on about 1/4 mile away. the wifi connected as soon as i walked in the door.
