Hi, I can't connect my 9800i to my USR wi fi router (I have 3 wi-fi devices connected without problems). The remote find the SSID but if I choose "obtain IP" it obtain a strange ip address out from the correct range (and I have dhcp service checked). If I choose a manual IP and input all the addresses, the remote doesnt connect. The green bars on the upper right are ok but the remote doesn't connect. I've tried everything. Help me please.

Sometimes I have the same problem. Looks like it has to do with "other" WiFi-access points in the area and the 9800i connects to those and even obtain an IP-adress from them. In my area, there are two other access points nearby. The only (fast) way I know to get it re-connected to my WiFi-point is using the off-on switch... Going to the network setup and change things there doesn't get the job done in most cases. Great, huh?
