    OK, I have searched in several locations and have not seen this specific question asked. If it has been discussed I apologize now for this.

    I have had my droid incredible for 2 weeks with no issues besides, this. While at home I have tried several times to get it to connect to my WIFI at home. It will start connecting and just sit on the "Obtaining IP Address" and not move any further.

    I have tried static IP on and off. Any suggestions?

    Guess I should also add, I have a Netgear WNR2000 router if that matters.

    Have you tried power cycling your router and then set the wifi to re-obtain and IP address?

    I did restart both router and modem and it works BUT I did that yesterday to get it to work also. I hope I don't have to do that tomorrow as well.

    Are you still having to power cycle your router and modem on a daily basis?

    I am having the same problem with HTC Incredible. The problem started after a few weeks of easy access. I tried with two routers at home. One is secure and one is open. In both cases it stays on "Obtaining IP address from router." I have restarted routers. Did you ever get an answer? I don't see one in this thread.

    Yes, still having issues. I can cycle my router on and off and it works BUT if I leave and come home its back to square one.

    This works great when I'm out in public. Picks up everything and connects with no problem. It only happens when at home.

    Have you tried the "Airplane" mode trick? You put it in Airplane mode then go back to wifi.
