Ok so this is my first annoyance with my droid, and to be fair i think it may be related to the router.
I searched the forums and read all the related threads
(Help with WIFI)
(wont sync up to my wifi)
WiFi - works fine at my mom's house. Unsure of the model of the router\gateway she is using but its a linksys and an open network. (she lives on a farm, no need for elaborate security closest neighbor is out of range of router) I arrive there and Locale switches on my WIFI and i can browse the web fine.
WiFi - does not work at my house, here are the solutions i have tried
It was first on WEP 64bit, ssid on, G/B mode
next i tried
just g, than just b mode
than wap security, ssid on, G mode...eas and tkip encryption
than wap2, ssid on, G mode, than mixed mode again
next i tried 0 security, SSID on, G, than G/B mode
I tried using the default browser and Dolphin, and even tried Where app a few times just to be sure. I disabled and reenabled the wifi on the droid numerous times. I rebooted the router a few times, and the firmware is up to date. My macbook, wife's vista laptop and even a dust collecting wii, are all connected wirelessly without issue.
Here is the odd thing. When i go into WIFI settings it says:
status - connected
speed - 54Mbps
signal strength - excellent
security - open (currently)
ip - 192.168.0.7
My router shows that address going to a "new-host".
I can ping .7 from both my router AND my desktop.
I've run out of ideas, so anyone have any suggestions?
