    This is my first droid so still learning, but I cant figure this one out. Just got Droid2 through verizon.

    I have a Wifi connection setup. The phone will connect to wifi, and obtain an IP address, but once connected will not transfer anything through the net. No facebook contacts, no web pages, no weather widget updates etc. 3g connection automatically turns off, and I do have the wifi connection symbol shown.

    Turning the wifi on and off through settings or the widget switch does not resolve the problem.

    If I turn wifi on, reboot the phone when the wifi is switched on, the connection will work, but if the connection is broken or turned off, it will not reconnect again until another reboot with the wifi enabled. Rebooting with the wifi off, then turning on doesnt work either.

    Any ideas? This holds true with several different hotspots.

    :welcome: to the forum!

    I've seen multiple reports lately of similar problems with X's. The suggestion I keep seeing is you have to sync your Droid to your router. I have no idea how to do that, however. How long have you had the phone?

    Yes SSID is being broadcast.
    WEP encryption

    But here again, wireless network is found, and successfully connected to each and everytime. I just dont have internet access unless a reboot is performed with the wifi turned on in the droid2

    Have you reset the router? I'm thinking your phone either isn't pulling a proper IP address or the router isn't assigning a proper IP address.
