    I'm having a hard time connecting to my Fios router. It says trying to connect and obtain IP address over and over, and then fails.

    Typed in the right Mac address.... not sure why I can't connect?

    Any ideas?

    some of the X's have had issues with wireless connection. Usually having something to do with using the "N" mode on the router. If the "N" mode on your router (assuming it has one) allows to choose between 2Ghz and 5Ghz, I think I've read you'll need to choose 5Ghz.

    The other possiblity is
    how many devices do you have connecting? I'm not sure how the FIOS router is setup but if they preconfigured the device to only hand out a maximum of say, 10 IP's then when 10 devices connect an 11th will get denied. You need to determine if that's configured to allow enough IP plus room to grow.
