    I had no problem with mine connecting to my own network as well as other wifi networks. Do you perhaps have MAC address restriction turned on in your router? If so you need to add the MAC address of the phone to the allowed list before it can connect.

    It depends on your router. But if you're asking this chances are you never went into the router settings in the first place, unless you had someone else set it up for you. If you did in fact have a third party handle the router setup I'd suggest you ask them to help you out.
    If your router is running in its default "out of the box" configuration then there won't be any access restriction for MAC addresses, it's something that has to be turned on and manually configured.
    I assume if there is a password for the network that you are entering it correctly (watch the upper/lower case, check the selection that shows the characters as you type so you can be sure they're right).

    I'm wondering if you ever got your phone to connect. I have Clear and mine is not connecting at all. My husband says give up but what's the fun in that? lol

    Do you have a clear hot spot? I have clear as well, but just a home router and a usb stick for my lap top. My wife and I really like it.

    I don't have a Clear hot spot. I have a Clear home router that only has an ethernet port. Then I have my old Verizon home router (from when I had FIOS) attached to the Clear router. Finally I have my PC attached to the Verizon router. The Clear router provides my internet, then the Verizon router provides wifi access for my laptop, phones, etc. the Verizon is just to provide wifi and a 4 port switch. I also have a USB stick from Clear that I use with my laptop when I'm not at the house.

    Does your Clear router provide wifi? Mine does not. If it does have wifi, then it should be just a matter of knowing your wifi settings. If it doesn't have wifi, you'll never get your phone connected.

    Sorry, I don't know what to tell ya then. Wifi is wifi. Do you have any difficulty connecting at a Starbucks or other wifi hotspot?

    I just have the Clear modem with wifi. I love it also but the fact that only of my phones can not (or will not) connect to it is sooooooo frustrating lol

    Well, it's clearly not our phones because mine is doing the EXACT same thing and I have clear with wifi. It must be something wrong with Clear. I have called them and they offered no assistance :(
