if you have access to your router settings, you can change briged to routed connection.

I have this intermittent connection on a netgear wireless router too, its set to use dhcp, and only fix is a reboot of the router.

I think the phone is storing an ip (dhcp assigned) which when you reconnect to your wifi may have been re-assigned (ip lease) to a.n.other device in the meantime.

So, lets say on Monday I obtained 192.168.0.2
didnt access the wifi for a day or so
lease expires (router)
a.n.other device connects, e.g. iPad, obtained 192.168.0.2 via dhcp
then you try and use your wifi on your phone and it doesnt connect.....

so I think it might be storing the ip address, rather than checking for a new one each time it connects, or something similar.

Over a half year I had the same problem. But now I fixed it, by simply change the wlan-key, because in my old key I had letters like , , . That didnt work. May be this works for you.

I think the problem is that I have too many wireless devices in a small room.
I started having the same problem with the phone prompting me that i had the incorrect password. I changed the channel in my router and now my Surround is connecting without hessitation! Thanks!

Hi,
I have Nokia Lumia 800 with Windows Phone 7.5 and also have problems with my home wifi connection. Firstly I had an old pentagram router and couldn't to connect with it, I tried WPA, WPA 2, WEP, WPA 2 mixed or even no security, always had the same problem, shows "network don't respond".
The phone itself connects to other networks, but not my home network.
I thought that it was problem with my router (but every other device had no problems with conenction, ipad, galaxy s, laptops or even TV), so I took another router (techniklab) and I have the same problem.
On both routers in "active clients" I saw the phone when it was trying to connect, logs looks like:

Code:
Select Code
Aug 20 22:13:31 wlan0: WPA2-AES PSK authentication in progress... 
Aug 20 22:13:31 wlan0: A wireless client is associated - 50:2D:1D:E2:8A:87
Aug 20 22:13:31 wlan0: Open and authenticated 
Aug 20 22:13:53 wlan0: A wireless client is disassociated - 50:2D:1D:E2:8A:87
Windows on my phone is up to date, router firmware also.
I can add that from couple of days I have Windows 8 (on PC) and it also cannot connect to my router, could it be some problems in new microsoft windows??

Any suggestions?
