    I have a DROID 1 (not rooted) running 2.2.1

    I cannot connect to any wifi.

    When I enable wifi I get

    wifi scanning > obtaining IP address > then nothing > repeats the same process.

    Help!
    Thanks

    A) I'll assume your router is broadcasting and B) That you have allowed it to be discovered?

    Sounds like no available WiFi?

    I have tried to connect to my work wifi and my home wifi. I have connected before. I recently reset my droid. Since then I re-entered my WEP key. Now I cannot get connected?

    Hello, are you running a custom ROM by any chance?

    Might want to try another factory data reset if you just performed one before the glitch. I hope we can get this resolved

    Take out your battery for 30 seconds, then bring your phone up. Let it sit there for a good two minutes, then try connecting again. I had the same problem as you when I had my droid.

    Good Luck.

    and the winner is...

    That did the trick. I turned off DROID > Took the battery out > waited 2+ minutes > then fired it up. Wifi connected.

    Thanks Homie!
