My K1 can only connect to 1 Wifi site

2011-09-04, 15:10 PM

I don't know if anyone else has seen this issue, but I had no problem connecting my new K1 to my home 802.11g wifi router and it continues to connect to that, but since then I have taken it to my office and to my girlfriend's apartment and it won't connect with either of those.  It sees the SSID and I enter the shared key but it just sits there in a loop saying "Obtaining IP address from SSID" and that's all.

 

Has anyone else seen a problem like this?  Does anyone have any suggestions, besides returning this to the store I bought it from and getting a useful tablet?


Thanks

arimr,

 

What version of the software are you using?  Maybe you can try updating to the 0829 that came out today while you are home and then see if it improves things at your other locations?

I got it to work at my girlfriend's by changing the Cipher Type on the wifi router. I won't be able to change the settings at work so I am wondering if there is any documentation about what wifi settings will work and whether anything is settable. Thanks.
