So I got the dreaded "obtaining IP" loop. I searched and found others have this problem too, but not for the Nitro. Their fixes don't work for me.

I can connect to my friend's router just fine with his password. I also have 2 routers at my house, both have passwords. I can connect to one of them just fine, but the other doesn't work and that's the one I get better signal from! I'm 100% sure I have the right password and I know the router is working fine because everyone else can connect to that router just fine with their phone.

You're trying to connect to 2.4Ghz, not 5Ghz, correct? My Galaxy SII would connect to 5Ghz on my router, but my Nitro only connects to 2.4Ghz.

They are both identical routers in my house. They don't say the Ghz.

Which channel is the wireless set to?

Transmission Rate?

Channel Width?

Security Mode?

WPA Mode?

Cipher Type?

Let me know what these settings are, I'm using the D-Link DIR-825 here and it's working fine.

Log in to the router from 192.168.0.1

Click the setup tab, and then wireless settings on the left. Next click "Manual Wireless Network Setup" and you should see your settings on that page.

The nitro should support WPA2 just fine. Plain ole WPA is now fairly insecure and it is advisable to avoid using it if possible.
