    Hi sorry to bother you guys but this problem is annoying.

    Sometimes my Nexus one android phone is able to connect to home wifi and sometimes it isn't

    -My nexus one froze so I took out the battery and replaced it and now it won't connect and stalls at obtaining ip address.

    -All my computers and laptops have never received such a problem and they are all connected to the same router at home. They are always able to connect.

    -My phone is always able to connect to my school wifi

    Why is it an issue with the android phone?

    -I am using 2.3.4 Nexus One.
    -it sucks that they haven't corrected this issue yet.

    Welcome to Android Forums, garmium.

    Sorry to see you're having wifi issues with your Nexus One, that's a great Android device, one of the best.

    Wifi issues crop up for a lot of reasons, but the most common has to do with IP address rotation on a dynamic network router set up. If your home router is set up that way, you will have to try a number of different things to get the phone to match up with the router's changing IP addresses, and not the same thing works for all devices and routers out there.

    I had the issue with my Galaxy Tab, and like you say, it happened suddenly after working fine for quite a while. I resolved it by rooting the Tab and entering some code which disallowed logging of the IP address served up by the router. Your device is not rooted, I assume, tell me if it is then we'll go from there. ;)

    Others will chime in now that I've put your question in the Nexus One forum area and marked your thread with the "Support" prefix. Hang in here a bit and check back for answers; this is a big place with a lot of users with a lot of experience with the Nexus One.
