It's not connecting to your router. Probably a setting somewhere, or something not compatible with the phone. Routers are funny things. You could try resetting the router to default settings and see if you can connect then. If it works, slowly add back the security (password, encryption, whatever) and see which thing "breaks" it.

hi, so you must go to garantee, or
before that try with another router, and see this problem remains or not.

Hi,

Is it stuck on "Obtaining IP address"? If yes, you might like to try using the Allshare app to connect to wi-fi. Just open the application, and click "ok" when prompted that it requires an internet connection. It then connects the phone to the wi-fi properly.

Another thing you might like to try is to use a Static IP. You can set it on the Wireless settings. I don't like this method very much though since it may not work on routers configured differently.

Finally, if it is not stuck on "Obtaining IP address", you might like to try to just enter *#*#526#*#* in the dialer. I think this code resets or re-loads the Wi-fi driver. It should say "Driver loading successful".

Hope you solve your problem!
