    So I got a new ATT Avail and trying to connect to my home WIFI. I enter the WEP key and select connect. After several minutes I get the message "remembered" then "disabled, secured with WEP." So, I can't connect to my home WIFI. Any help?

    "No. It is a problem with Android. If you have root there it's a fix. Go to ect/dhcpcd/ & change the permission of dhcpcd-hooks folder to rwx for all users."

    Thanks for responding. Unfortunately, I have no idea what you are talking about here. Can you please clarify?

    Thanks!

    I'm out of ideas too! I have tried:

    reseting the base station
    reseting the phone
    removing the battery
    restoring defaults
    disabling firewalls
    disabling the WEP key
    adding a wifi network on the phone
    changing the wireless mode

    ...all with the same results. The phone spends several minutes "obtaining the ip address" flashes "remembered" then sticks on "disabled."
