    Got a very weird problem here.

    My Galaxy Note CANNOT my home wireless router. Nothing strange about that on its own except that:-

    It CAN detect all the SSIDs from my neighbours' routers in my apt block as well as Wi-Fi spots around town. My own SSID doesn't show up in the list of Wi-Fi networks under the settings menu.

    ALL my other devices (laptops and desktops, my wife's Wi-Fi enabled phone) CAN detect the SSID and connect to the router. If I try to add the SSID manually using the "Add Wi-Fi network" option, I just get the message "Out of Range".

    Can anyone suggest what could be causing this?

    I had a similar problem with a Samsung Galaxy Ace I bought for my son. I had to log on to my Netgear router and change the security to "WPA-PSK [TKIP]" and then it worked.

    Mine did this one evening then seemed to rectify itself. At all other times it had been fine. The only difference between mine and others I have never had an issue with is that I recently went over to wireless N.
