New update won't recognize wifi connection

Droid shows that i'm connected to wifi and powered on but dogcatcher won't update podcasts. When I got to the download Queue it says that I'm not connected to wifi. Any ideas why it would do this?

Nexus one right?

I had a few users report this problem on a nexus one and I recently reproduced it on my nexus one. There's a bug with this device where it reports that it is not connected to wifi when it is. I am trying to find a workaround for it but the only thing I've found that works sometimes demonstrates another bug in reverse when it says it is connected to wifi but it is not. This is much worse because it could cause downloads over the cell network when users have configured to only use wifi. I'll post if I can find a workable solution.

The people that have had this before reported that a reboot makes the bug go away for a while.

This is actually on my Droid.

This is actually on my Droid. I don't have a nexus one. I don't know if that makes a difference.
