Having trouble connecting to home wifi
I have att uverse internet and when I try connecting to it, the phone just sits on obtaining ip address. I've tried using both the system password and the wireless network key. Both yield the same result.
Edit: I tried the system password again and this time it connected after about 10 min.
Stupid Apple/MAC destroyed my U-verse network!!!
I just got U-verse and I am having the same problem. Well, not at first... everything worked fine the first few days, my D1 connected just fine. Then my sister who lives in the other side of my house(duplex) tried connecting her damn iPhone and Mac book Pro to the network.(She doesn't listen to me, took her new stupid Apple fan boy boyfriends advice on getting a damn iPhone and Mac Book, Grrrrr!!!!) lol. Now my everything is jacked up. I "tried" to work on the macs to get them to connect, and everything on them is intermittent, b/c of some stupid "airport" utility. I don't use Mac, never will because they suck ass.
Now my Droid just cycles "obtaining IP address", connecting, Disabled. I rebooted phone and RG, deleted all remembered connections on phone and RG.
Found a few articles that suggest Apple's Airport utilitity doesn't play well with 2wire, Belkin, or any RG for that matter except Apple's Airport router. These Apple fan boys have the gall to flame 2wire on these articles for not catering to "Almighty Apple", when it is Apple that should play nice with the existing standards, or at least be backward compatible if they "believe" they have better technology.
In short: Maybe the Apple/MAC issue is separate from the Droid issue, more trouble shooting ahead, but if anyone gets this issue too or finds the problem/solution please post/comment
Might have solved the problem...
Okay, I have the 2wire i3812V Residential Gateway (RG). This has solved the wifi connection problem for the PS3, D1, and so far my sister's Mac Book Pro. I simply disabled the WPS Wi-Fi Protected Setup. The network is still secured by the WPA/WPA2 pass key. I don't have much experience using WPS, or even what is is "exactly". I assume it is that "one button push" security feature for some media devices.
Disabled the WPS feature under LAN -> Wireless -> WiFi Protected Setup and everything connects just fine now using the WPA/WPA2 security key.
Anyone have more experience or knowledge on this WPS security feature?
I suppose I will apologize for flaming Apple for the time being... ;^)
