    Hi all, I got my Triumph from Target a few days ago, and it wasn't giving me any trouble until today. It hasn't been rooted, and the WiFi in my house has been working fine on it until tonight. It seems to take an EXTRAORDINARY amount of time obtaining my network IP, then it says it can't connect, but that the network is remembered. About 10-30 seconds after this, it'll say "Disabled, secured with WPA/WPA2 PSK". I've tried cycling airplane mode, turned WiFi on/off repeatedly, forgetting the network, booting with airplane mode on/off, booting with WiFi on/off, and everything in between (not a router reset because all 3 of our XBoxes, 5 laptops, and Wii are functioning properly), but nothing seems to be working. 3G works fine, but when I'm trying to stream Pandora on my phone at my house, it's a little annoying. Does anyone have any suggestions? And I mean any, because I really want this to work like it did over the past week. Thanks in advance.

    PS: This was my first post, so please go easy on me. :D

    Thanks for the kind words, I'm no stranger to forums. My issue is the fact that it's been working for almost a week, and it's suddenly kicked off. I see what you're saying about never letting it sleep, but it's not an option for me, as I have school, and I don't want a WiFi scan munching on my delicious battery cake all day. :D

    I had a similar issue and I reset my router and it has been fine since.

    Well this morning it still didn't work, and I found out my dad's OpV wouldn't connect either. So I finally decided to go for it and reset the router, even though every other WiFi enabled device in my house was working right, and lo and behold, my Triumph and his OpV connected again as soon as I put the password in. So I guess the definitive solution is a router reset. Thanks to anybody who helped.

    I've had similar issues as well. Laptops working, girls watching Netflix of the Wii, and my phone won't connect. A router reset fixes it every time.

    Occasionally mine will also take awhile searching for the IP address of my home WiFi. I did notice though that if I connected to another open network previous it was more of a problem. My network is security protected WPA/PSK.
