    I'm a cableguy....really
    Monterey, CA
    I have a feeling my problem is the router and not my Droid, but I thoght I would try anyway.

    I have 2 networks that I conenct to at my work. An open network and a secure one.

    The open network, which has weak signal, I have no problem connecting to.
    However, when I try to connect to the secure network, which i have great signal, I get "Disabled, secured with WPA/WPA2 PSK". I am positive I have the right password.

    The strange part is I have had my Droid for less than 2 weeks. Before I had an Eris and would connect to that network everyday without any problems. But have never been able to connect with my Droid once :( I dont think anything has changed with that router, but i cant say for sure.

    Any ideas as to why the Droid wont connect?
    Unfortunately, i dont have access to the routers settings. Unless I really had to, i can try to access it early in the morning:rolleyes:

    Appreciate any help

    I run WPA2 PSK with MAC filter and blocked SSID at home, no problem connecting with the (stock) Droid (2.1). Sometimes I do have to long press on the IP address and then press "connect."

    on a side note, have you checked out that great wifi tool Wifi Analyzer. it wont help this issue per se, but it gives great wifi details and ability to connect/disconnect connections.
