Default Can't Connect To Home WIFI

I have always been able to connect to any public wifi with no problems. At home I am unable to connect. I have Knology internet service with the Knology provided modem connected to a desk top Mac. For some reason Knology does not provide wireless routers so I purchased a Trendnet modem at Comp USA. I had no problem hooking it up and got an instant connection with my Dell laptop. When I turn the wifi on my Samsung GS2 phone I get the security sign on and it starts scanning. Then it says disconnected, then scanning, then disconnected and so on. any suggestions?

Typical problem with android devices. Reset your modemn and router. If problem still exist then download wifi fixer from the market. If the problem is still there then back up your data and do a factory reset.

agree with JayC although I would just do the factory reset (holding power button and volume up button at the same time) after you reset your modem if that doesn't fix the issue. Never tried the market app but did have initial problems with WiFi and did the factory reset which fixed the issue.

I tried resetting the modem and then went through all the settings, however I didn't change any of them, and now the phone will connect. I guess resetting the modem did the trick. Thanks.

Had the same problem with my new Touch: would not find an ip address. Unplugged modem and router for 5 minutes, now the phone connects. Will have to wait and see if this is a recurring problem or not.

I have the same problem and seem to need to reset the router daily in order to log on. Would sure like to find a fix, since it is a PITA to have to do it all the time.
