    I have a Thunderbolt that stopped connecting to my wi-fi. I've had it for like 6 months with no problems. It was connecting fine, but all of a sudden quit. I know the password. My other devices are connecting. So I know it's not my router. It connects to other wi-fi's.

    It just sits there saying Obtaining IP address

    I don't think I can take it to Verizon, cause I bought it thru ebay. The phone part isn't activated. I'm just using it as a wi-fi device.

    Any ideas would be appreciated. thanks

    I figured it out. My router had reverted back to the default password. My ISP had me change it once.

    Thanks for trying Justin
