    So i finally got this bad boy home after work and i am having trouble connecting to my home wifi connection. I am using a Netgear wireless-N router. When i try to connect on the phone it gets caught up on "obtaining ip address" for a while and then quits. When i go back to my wifi on the phone it says "remembered, secured with wpa/wpa2 psk".

    Just checked it again now and its saying connection unsuccesful please try again.

    I had this same problem on my nexus one and just assumed that the n1 was not N compatible.

    Hopefully someone can help, thanks!

    all the galaxy phones have b+g+n compatibility built in.

    Sorry I have to ask, did you follow these steps?

    Access the Wi-Fi settings menu by navigating to the Wireless & networks menu

    Select Wi-Fi settings
    Choose a listed network, or add a hidden network by selecting Add Wi-Fi network

    If you choose one of the listed networks and it's secured, enter the password, press Connect and you'll be connected to that network

    If you wish to access a hidden network, select Add Wi-Fi network and enter the SSID

    If a password is required, you'll be prompted to enter this before connecting

    what type of security do you use for your wireless network?

    is your network broadcasting OR is it hidden?

    Ok so i logged into my router and turned off the security and it connected. So im thinking it may have something to do with the wpa/wpa2 security? Im gonna try switching it to wep and see if that does anything.

    I am having exactly the same problem. Called tech support and they couldn't help either. I'm going to try going to a hotspot today and seeing if it is only a problem with netgear. Hopefully someone can help. Good luck.

    I've got a netgear router running on N and it works fine. The router is not blocking new devices is it? Problem I had

    Just had same problem and tried solutions listed with no success. Finally switched of router to refresh. Turned on and immediately connected.

    Go into router and turn " a b g n " on. The Netgear wireless-N router has only "n".
    The Vibrant only has "g" Or tell the router to upgrade. Usually the first option.
