Recently, I got a message from AT&T that I'm near my data limit. This surprised me as my last cycle I barely got near 500mb. Since my bill isn't ready yet, I can't see exactly what it is I'm doing to use so much data.
To be safe, I figured I'd pull out my old router and set it up (D-Link WBS 2310). After hours of hassle getting it to work on my new computer, I wasn't able to get my Captivate to hook up to it.
My laptop gets on fine, gets a fast wifi signal, but my phone just says "Obtaining IP address" for a while and then gives up.
My Captivate gets wifi at work, at friends' houses, at coffee shops - but not at home.
I've set it up with no encryption, WEP encryption and WPA2 encryption.
Each time my laptop would hook up to the wifi but my phone wouldn't.
I searched some other forums and found similar problems with HTC phones.
Some answers say that D Link sucks. But that answer applies to other brands as well.
I don't want to buy another router only to find it still doesn't work.
