wireless connection problem
We have Netgear WNSAP330 wireless access points and when I try to use them for connection via WiFi it says obtaining an address then after 30 secords or so it goes to disable every time I try to connect to them. One of them is using web the others are wpa/wpa2. Anyone having problems with wireless working. At home I have a netgear wireless router that works just fine.
I had a similar problem with my droidx but only if the access here at work used wpa/wpa2, wep would work just fine.
I got the droidx2 as a replacement for a broken droidx they were out of them., a nice bonus .

the "obtaining ip address" for a bit before dropping has happened to me before on a different device, and it was only because i had the wrong password. could try changing password type as he mentioned, or turning off the password and try connecting, which on that note have you been able to connect to other wireless networks? if so they have password or open?
I have been able to connect to two other networks without a problem, at home at a friends house. I have both web and wpa/wpa2 on the access points here at work and can not connect to either of them. If I get the change to try out the no password I will do that today or it might have to wait until after I get back from vacation.
Thanks for the ideals.

just played around with my (crappy) verizon fios router here at home. all types of authentication/password worked for me. you wouldn't have MAC filtering on would you? where you have to allow each device to connect within the router settings. sorry for no help. while you mentioned at work also, try pairing with an IT guy if you can and play around with things. If they're bored they may be down to help. i wouldn't suggest messing too much with your router if you don't know what some of the settings may do.
