Just recently updated to android 4.0.4 wireless has been working since update. Went away for Easter weekend and turned router off. When I can back router had to be restarted a few times to get it working properly and is now working fine for the wireless on my laptop, but me phone is stuck on Obtaining IP address.
Has anyone else had this problem and know how to fix it?

Remove the wireless network from your Android device and reconnect again.
You will then need to re-enter the wireless key.

Seems to be a common problem, sometimes a reboot fixes it, more often than not you have to "forget" the connection and re-add it again though.

I have removed and reconnected but is still stuck on obtaining ip address. Was in town today and it connected fine to the wifi areas around town. I'm thinking its a problem with the router, will check tomorrow.
