    Hi forum, My Desire is not connecting to my home wifi (although it used to work fine). It still connects in work and everywhere else, but at home it goes through the following sequence of events:

    Connecting...
    Obtaining IP address from BTHomeHub2...
    Disconnected...

    Then keeps repeating that sequence :mad:. I've tried everything like resetting the router/ turning the router off and on/ turning the phone off and on/ taking the sim card out etc... but still the same sequence.

    Can anyone help??

    I have a BT home hub.

    Are you still having the problem?

    A similar thing happens to me with my HomeHub, but after a few hours it allows me back on. Sometimes forgetting the Network and putting the Wep/WPA key back in can solve it also.

    It is also possible that you HomeHub may need updating. Check if the update light is flashing on the side.

    Thanks, i'll try that out. I've tried the putting the keys back in with no success. I'm thinking maybe this problem started when i connected my ps3 to the wifi? Not sure, will let you know how i get on.

    Matter of fact now you mention it, it may have happened for me also when I started using PS3. I'll look into it.

    Try this. Go into your wi-fi settings via your browser (by putting in IP adress) and delete the Desire as a device (make sure your phone is turned off first). Then turn your phone off and try to re-connect.

    Also if you on 2.2 try looking here
