Will Not Stay Connected to WIFI
« on: January 26, 2015, 12:52:13 PM »
I have asked around and keep getting the "turn your router/phone on/off", "your phone is crap", "your router is crap", and so on (not from this forum, of course).  I cannot get my Moto G to stay connected to my home WiFi.

Let me first say, my laptop and my Nook both connect just fine.

What happens with Moto is this:  I pick my network from the list, put in the password (which I have confirmed is the correct one with my son, who set it up, and also with my downstairs neighbor, who I let use the network), and it just hangs there, trying to connect.  It says "obtaining IP address".

Once in awhile it will flash that it has connected, then immediately go back to "obtaining IP address."

I have unchecked the "avoid poor connections", yet often when it doesn't connect it will state that it HAS avoided poor connections (why does it do that when I specifically told it not to?).

I have tried the on/off thing, and also have put Moto nearly on top of the router, in case it was some weird proximity thing.

I connected to a public WiFi with it, once, so I don't know what to think.

I really want this to work because I only have 500mb data/month and if I could use my home WiFi, that would be great.  My neighbor, who can use the WiFi network, doesn't have an Android phone so I don't know if that has anything to do with it.

I have looked at other places online and they talk about changing settings on the router to 3G, and stuff like that, and I don't understand any of it, nor am I willing to try to reset anything for fear the whole thing will crash and nothing will work.  I can't afford to mess with the router and risk losing the internet for my laptop.

Can anyone help this grandma?
