[Q] Motorola Milestone - help with WiFi connection


Recently I had occasion to do a hard reset of my Milestone. I had used Universal Androot and then tried to install an Apps2SD application called App2Card. Unfortunately, things got a bit screwed up and I had to do a hard reset.

Post that, everything else works fine but the WiFi refuses to connect. It finds the various APs around but always says "Obtaining IP address from XXX..." and then "Connection failed". I tried resetting it again but this problem still persists. Tried it on my home network, office network, without security, etc but still no luck. I tried assigning a fixed IP address too, along with all the settings required. This works (as in, the WiFi icon appears on the taskbar, it says it is connected) but I can't surf or use any application that needs internet connectivity.

It used to connect to both home and office networks perfectly before. There have been no security or other setting changes on either of these networks. I also tried some open public WiFi networks, but the same problem persists.

Till this event occurred, I have been using WiFi on my home and office network with no problem at all. So it can't be a network issue.

Does anyone have any suggestions I can try? Any help appreciated!
