Question iRobot 7" aPad Android 2.3 wifi connection problems

Hi have a new MID device (EM73)

I can connect at 'home' without trouble WPA2/PSK
I cannot connect at 'work' with WPA2/PSK

The SSID is located and the password is all correct.
The tablet loops through 'Scanning...' , 'Connecting...' and finally 'Disconnected...'

The 'work' router is a Draytek Vigor 28006 issuing DHCP dynamic IP addresses to a variety of PC's, Macs, iPhone, iPads and Blackberries ... all of which access the network happily.

I have restarted the router ... with no change

- Does anyone know why the tablet would have a problem?
- Are there any known issues with this tablet and my work router?
- Are their any apps which I can download at home, which will help me connect at work?

I would appreciate any assistance.

Question scanning connecting disconnected

I've got two different model ereader tablets (7 inch) runing 2.3, neither of which can connect to a WEP router although they recognise the router and signal strength is excellent. No sleep mode. reboot ereader and router, reset ereader - nothing. sometimes it says obtaining IP address from the router then disconnected.

A solution would be nice.

Have you tried giving the router a static IP address?
