    Bring it back and ask the store associate to connect to the store's secure wifi. If it doesn't, get another phone. Have it checked in the store before accepting it.

    If it does work in the store, change your wifi encryption to AES if it's TKIP or TKIP+AES. That usually doesn't stop connecting, it just slows the connection so much that dial up seems super fast, but it could make the connection so slow that the router drops the connection request.

    Do you know how to get into your WiFi router settings? It is possible you have enabled WiFi MAC address filter, so it will only allow devices where you have OK'd their MAC address to be accepted by the router. If it is on, turn it off in the router settings to see if this corrects the problem. I have WiFi MAC address filtering on and forgot about it. Had a family member visit my house and we tried for hours to get the WiFi connected and finally realized this was the problem.
