WiFi Connection Problem

    I'm having a weird Wifi connection problem.

    If I activate wifi via the power widget, wifi does turn on, but doesn't connect to my router.

    If I go to Wireless & Networks in the settings and click Wi-Fi settings, I see it shows my router there and says "not in range, remembered" initially, but as soon as that page comes up, it connects.

    Why is it only connecting after I go to the settings?

    This exact thing was happening to me and I refused to believe that a simple router and modem reset would fix it, but it did. Try that, leaving it unplugged for a few minutes. Works flawlessly for me now, seamlessly switching between wifi and 3g as I go in/out of range.

    Haha, I was just coming back to say the same thing.

    I rebooted the router and phone and I'm good.

    I was playing around with setting static DHCP on the router and I bet I had it confused there a bit.

    if you put a password on your router it should solve the problem. it doesnt want to automatically connect to unsecured networks

    rebooting the router is always the first step, they like that to reset some settings for some reason
