    Hey Bassman. I know you and I went over this a little bit yesterday but so everyone can help can you tell us a few things.

    What Kernel?

    What rom (I have about 7 atm)

    Flash any Themes?

    Any addons?

    Try resetting the modem?

    What's the exact error message you're getting?

    What steps have you already taken to fix this?

    Just some basic stuff. I know I already asked you but I just want it out there for everyone else who's new to the issue.

    I'm using LFY 1.9 with a Slayher kernel, and a WRT54G v2.1 router. The ONLY way I can connect to wifi is:

    a) broadcast SSID
    AND
    b) use a static IP address on my Droid

    DHCP mode NEVER gives me an IP, and if I hide the SSID; 9/10 times my phone cannot find my router, it simply tells me it's not in range.

    Bassman....did the new kernel do the trick?

    What kind of a router wireless connection do you have?

    I just ran into an issue connecting to my N router...it would take forever to get an IP and then drop the connection randomly. I attached my droid to my WRT54G router and my connection issues went away.
