    I have an Amped Wireless repeater and my Nexus 7 won't connect to it. It authenticates but it can't/wont obtain an IP address. Any ideas what is going on? I have no issues with an iPhone 4s, 3gs, iPad 1 or iPad 3. I also have no issues with multiple laptops or wireless devices (DirecTV, TVs, Apple TV, etc...).

    How many clients is your DHCP server set to allow? I've seen them configured as low as 5. You MAY have hit the configured limit.

    It's really out of my league, but searching through some forums I found folks having problems with a MAC address incompatibility. Know it's no help, but perhaps that'll lead you in the right direction.

    I got it fixed. I never figured out the issue but a complete reset of my router and repeater fixed the issue.
