gdeight, thank you for your comment. Will try your suggestion as soon as I have a chance.
But then, why did it work before, am I right to assume that the incompatibility is related to the new build?
Or is it possible that there is hardware failure?

Hi Wijono, I suspect this is more of a software or configuration issue than hardware especially if it worked fine before the firmware update.
If you're stuck at obtaining the IP Address, it's likely that the router DHCP server isn't willing to give your K1 an address for whatever reason (credentials, out of IP addresses, etc). The other day, I had the exact same problem but with my laptop (when battery ran out) . My other devices, the K1 and netbook, connected fine but my laptop would not. After rebooting the router, everything was back to normal.
BTW, my K1 is working with WPA2-AES and a 2Wire branded dsl modem/AP router combo.

I have a netgear router and repeater. I have had several issues with not being able to connect to either. I have tried to 'forget' the connection and reconnect, but that hasn't solved the problem. I can connect easily to hotspots but not my router at home.

Most routers default to auto channel selection. Depending on what kind of wireless equipment you have around the house (phones, alarms, etc), you may be experiencing some kind fo interference on the channel the router is selecting.
Try manually setting the channel on the router, and try different channels. I was having problems with a netbook that has poor wifi reception, and was able to clear the problem up by manually selecting a different channel. Believe it or not, it was being caused by signal radiation from my plasma tv (found that by moving the router further from the tv, the problem also cured (yes, moving it closer recreated the problem), but just left it on the manual set channel anyway).
