Default wifi connect stuck "obtaining address" loop

the Mrs. got her gs4 on Saturday. not rooted, stock. (I actually haven't even looked to see if there's a root for it yet, not that she'd let me yet)

All is well except I can't get it to connect to home home router's wifi. stuck in an 'obtaining ip address' loop until it gives up. router is a:
Linksys WRT54G, Wireless-G

All other phone's in the house have no trouble. I triple and quadruple checked her settings.

I turned "wireless hotspot" on on my 3vo and she was able to connect to it no problem. (this is actually how she was able to get through the initial setup, as it required a wifi connection).

today we'll try some other hotspots.

any idears?
