    I am experiencing WiFi problems with my home wireless network
    ,( have been having this problem since 1st getting Epic, 2.1, 2.2 Dk28..)

    My Epic sees my Wifi network and many others, I enter password click on setting to remember ect. it authenticates..... and fails to connect..

    My laptop connects with no problems. My Epic sees my neighbors' open networks and connects automatically to those. It just has problems connecting to my home network. I have no problems with out side networks public or secure, my Office network works fine..

    Everytime I reset my router, My Epic connects fine..

    What could be the problem..

    My Netgear router IS Broadcasting SSID

    I am using Netgear WNR2000
    Security setting WPK-PSK (TKIP)

    Anyone else experiencing this problem?

    I have attached an image of my settings

    Have you updated your routers firmware to the latest version? Otherwise try a reset on the router and see if that helps..

    Every time I reset the router It does work.. problem is I do not like having to do that every time I want my Wifi to connect.

    Have you tried connecting to a different router to eliminate the possibility of it being a router problem?
