    I have been using my SGS at home without no problems connecting to my ADSL wireless router. Now when I try to connect, its says its trying to obtain IP address. At work I have no problem, same router, same supplier (Telefonica, Spain) but at home no luck. Please can someone tell me best way to sort this problem.

    please don't use WEP encryption .. WEP can be cracked in less than 5 minutes
    to find your external IP [the one provided by your ISP] use the site given before
    if you wanna find your internal IP [the one provided by the router] menu->settings->wireless and networks->wifi settings -> click on the network [must be already connected]

    I had this problem with some routers too .. wouldn't connect
    here are some ideas that may work

    1- go into your router settings and change the wireless channel [am using channel 11]
    2- while in wifi settings, menu -> advanced and set a static ip for your phone

    if you dunno what to put then here's what to do
    assuming you have a laptop with a wireless connection, connect to that network from the laptop and check network details
    your ip should be something like, for your phone .. put the same thing but change the last number
    gateway should be same as your computer

    the 2nd option will be kinda annoying as that you'd have to disable the static ip for other places and enable it when you are at home

    When I had the same problem simply turning off the router for a couple of minutes then booting it back up solved it for me.

    Check with your router settings, and firewall settings also. If its fine then unplug your router once then try again it might be works.to your know ip details try ip-details dot com
