    dear all,

    After I reboot my Desire,it stay in "obtaining IP address from xxxxx" for a very long time,and will never finish this work [​IMG]

    Why? [​IMG]

    here is the Wifi software version and screen shot when it working [​IMG]

    Anything I could do about that? Please kindly advise.

    Thank you!

    Have you tried rebooting your router & then trying?
    Another thing to try see if you can connect to your router unsecured just to make sure its not your key playing up, if you can connect try using a shorter key

    Thats always something you could try a higher version of wifi, but you may also find that the router reboot may have cleared the problem long term.
    I find routers & all computer based products can get quirky through static build up, often caused by weather conditions.
    Often a reboot clears the problem long term.

    Try entering your mac address into your routers trusted access list. I find that using the access list solves a lot of connection/access issues.

    +1 add your desire to the router/network, this usually clears access issues

    Your radio version is the most current so don't worry about updating that. Try deleting the connection on your phone and re-entering. Re-check that you have the right key as the others have said, and make sure your router doesn't have MAC filtering enabled (or if it is, add the MAC address of your phone).

    Assuming you haven't locked your wifi to mac-adresses which is both unsecure and a f*ing pain every time there is a new device...

    What does solve this problem I've found is going into the router settings (on a netgear LAN Setup) and reserving an IP adresss for your phone.
