    My Droid connects to wifi fine with a different router but it won't connect to my Linksys E2000. I'm sure it's a setting within the router. Anyone have trouble with this particular router wifi?

    P.S. I'm able to connect my laptop fine.

    What type of security is on your router?

    Hmm, I am using WP2 only (AES only) an mine works fine.

    Try removing the router from the phone settings and then let it find the router again, may be coreupted settings.

    Has it ever connected to this router before?

    I'm having the same issue, wpa/wpa2 mixed, hidden ssid. I enter my ssid and password and it never even tries to connect. I can 'forget' and re-add but nothing

    My recollection is that with v2.0, WPA2 with SSID blocked sometimes made the Droid unhappy. The problem seemed cured with v2.1, and then v2.2 seemed to bring back the original problem occasionally (you can see all sorts of spikes in the signal strength using Wifi Analyzer if you run with SSID blocked). I have not experimented yet with v2.2.1, since I've just left SSID broadcasting on my home router. Maybe this week I'll see what happens. I think my Droid was always happy with WPA. BTW as you may have noted, all other wireless devices seem perfectly happy with any of these settings.

    I was having WIFI trouble for a while, and I switched my router settings to WPA2 (AES), and haven't had trouble since.
