Sorry, but dropping all security from your home router is not a "solution."
It shouldn't be necessary to specifically add the BB's MAC address either if this isn't required for public access.
So what't the answer??

I am having the exact same issue....failing to obtain IP address......phone sees the network but is unable to get an ip from router. It worked briefly then just stopped connecting altogether. I have tried lots of suggestions still no go.......I wish RIM would come out with a fix for this as it seems to be a very common problem.
I do not want to run router with no wep security as in previous post........any body have a fix?

1) Go to menu > options > advanced options > TCPIP
2) APN Settings Enabled should be checked.
3) Reconnect to your WiFi network
Hope it helps
