    I just purchased my Droid X yesterday and I cannot seem to get on my network at work. We have DHCP turned off on our Network and use static IP's. Is there any way to handle this on the android platform? Everytime I try to login to the network it gets to the obtaining address part and fails.

    I always try going into airplane mode then coming out of it. If this doesn't work I would think that it's something to do with wifi compatibility

    It's 2010 why is your company using static IP's? Are you all running servers? It is much easier to use reserved DHCP.

    Well, to be honest I am DBA/Business Analyst and our other IT person has limited network experience as well so the static IP's have just been very easy for us to maintain and we have had no problems so why switch.

    We do have 10 open DHCP slots, but I am still having problems. I went into Airplane mode and tried to connect and got nothing. Is that what you were suggesting?

    I'd suggest installing an application called 'alogcat' which will allow you to view system logs. If you take a look at the logs it may have more info as to what the problem is.

    I know this may sound silly, but is there another device using your IP? If you have a PC on the same network, try to ping the address your trying to use for your phone.
