    I cannot connect to the wifi network in my house. I can easily connect to the wifi at my work when I type in the password, but when I try the WEP key at my house it still says disconnected.

    It shows my network and says "Remembered, secured with WEP" if I hit connect nothing happens. I tried "forget" and then connecting again, making sure my wep key is correct, and still no luck.

    I had to manually adjust some of my router settings in order to connect. I'd suggest googling your particular router and searching for 'connect to wifi on droid". or something like that. I was able to fix it and have had no further problems. :)

    also this thread on another forum talks about wifi issues and the X but some of the solutions will be helpful. :)

    On another note, WEP provides a relatively weak level of security. Consider upgrading to WPA or WPA2 if your wireless router supports it, or buy a new router if not. My phone connects flawlessly with my Linksys Wireless-G using WPA2 security.

    well I turned WEP off just to test if I could connect without it, and it still won't connect. I did a factory reset and still no luck... Any other ideas?

    How old is your router?? There's a chance that your router might have just gone bad.
