This may be a combination of more than one issue I'm having. My tablet is a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (Wifi only), and my router is a Cisco DPC2325 to which I do not have admin access . My original issue is one that seems to have come up quite a bit on this forum: Although my Wifi connection worked fine while on vacation, when I got home and tried to connect to my home network I got stuck on "Obtaining IP Address", with the tablet eventually informing me "Network disabled. Poor connection" So far I've tried -Restarting the Tablet. -Factory Reset on the Tablet. -Power off all other devices connected to the network (a computer and an ipod), then reset both the tablet and the router (the latter by physically unplugging it and letting it sit for a bit). One main workaround suggested on the forums seems to be to use a static IP address. I've tried setting this up using the settings from the network properties I got from my computer (including changing the gateway from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.0.1, which may or may not have made a difference). Once I did this, I was able to successfully connect to my wireless network, but then couldn't get out to the internet at large (all webpages showed as "not available" in the browser. I've tried shuffling through various combinations of DNS (my network properties lists three, but there's only space for two in the static IP setup), but with no change on this. A couple of the other suggestions from when the same issue showed up on other devices don't seem relevant here (there's no "best Wifi performance" option under the advanced Wifi settings, and the Allshare app wants me to connect to the internet to authenticate first thing). I don't currently have root access, and really am enough of a novice that I have no idea how to implement the "REAL FIX" suggested in stayboggy's post. I'd appreciate any suggestions of other workarounds, or on how to get the static IP workaround working.
