    I have a problem with my WiFi as well.
    Nexus One rooted with 2.3.1 (GB) installed.

    At my school they have a WEP-secured Wi-Fi linkup and my Nexus One refuses to connect and will sit there trying over and over again. Eventually it will get on but it's frustrating.

    I also have an iPod Touch and it connects right away, but this damn Android doesn't. I don't understand what the deal is.
    I'm sure any self-respecting Android fan would hate to admit that the iPod firmware is superior but in this case it is. I have extensive experience with both.

    I had the same problem before I updated to GB. The CyanogenMod seemed to help when I had that. Also at one point I had something called "WiFi Fixer" installed and that really did the trick but I only tried it for one day before they wanted me to pay. I shouldn't have to pay for something the Google devs should fix themselves. If an app has been made for it, that means there is a software fix, so get on it.
    Still not even fixed with Gingerbread what is wrong Google get with the program.

    I just bought a Nexus S and it will not connect to my home wi fi. It sees it and tries to connect and then says "disabled" Any ideas?

    I have the same problem as Lesley, can anyone help?

    The Nexus will simply not log on to my home wi-fi router. It says authenticating to and then disable.

    Does the Nexus have a PIN which can help with the set-up?

    Thank you!

    Check your router settings. With some security or frequency config settings (dont know wich ones sadly. Maybe the 802b only mode or security encryption levels), it can conflicts the connectivity of the phone. I had the same issue at 1st when connecting to my router.

    iPeck: Thanks for replying. To be honest, I'm new to all of this so alot of it is very confusing to me.... I've been at it for 2 hours and just about fed up now! I wish it would just log in and get over with it, when I have to play around with settings then I'm lost. Been trying to read up about the issue on the net but everyone has a different solution. Confusing! lol

    Yes, soooo many different issues with these phones

    1st, log to router and go to the settings. You'll find (somewhere, depending on your router brand) password security encryption level (wep, wpa etc..). Downgrade the level of encryption. afaik thats whats prevented me from connecting.
