        Same…this trick used to work and now it’s not. Used to be just changing to static fixed the problem. Then it quit working. So I’d follow the next step and changed back to DHCP after connecting. And then for a long that worked. Now I follow those same steps…Change to static, change IP, wait till connected, return to DHCP and it just starts the same problem all over. It’s like my tablet is getting smarter on how to piss me off.

      This may be caused by conflicting IP addresses. This means two or more devices are using same IP addresses. Eliminate this problem by using a different IP address.

          First you have to get into your router settings. To do so enter the router’s IP address on the URL bar ( to find your router’s IP address, type ipconfg on CMD and press enter and you’ll find the address under Default Gateway). Once you’re in, find the list of connected devices and look at their IP addresses and choose the one which is not listed there for your device.

            Amogh Timsina

            you can access router settings from any device that is connected to the internet via the router and has a web browser. but to find the router’s IP address, you need a PC. You can run CMD by typing “cmd” in the search box on the start menu. if you’re using windows 8, move your pointer to the bottom right edge of the screen and click on search; then you can search for CMD.

    Static IP defeats the purpose of dynamic IP assignment. What is the fix to just make DHCP work the way it is supposed to work? I don’t believe android would say the solution is static IP only.

    The recommended solution did not work for me. However, I came across a comment suggesting that there is a problem with Android and some Belkin routers. As I had an oldish Belkin router I bought a new router (Netgear) and then everything worked fine. I appreciate that this is not a cheap solution, especially if it does not do the trick for you, but if like me you are despearte and nothing else works you may care to try it.

    it should be noted that this solution only works for your home network, of you’re trying this on some other form of hotspot it won’t work. on that note. setting a static ip should only be a temporary solution. I fixed my issue by logging into my router, and being specific on what my dhcp server should give out, specifically I hardcoded it to give out dns server information, after that all is well. AND when company comes over I dont have to tell them how to put in a static ip lol. If you want to try this, go to a cmd prompt and type “ipconfig” you will see “default gateway” followed by an ip address, that is your routers ip address, now type that in the url bar, and login to your router, search atound for dhcp/dns options, once found uncheck the dns get automatically and instead click use the following dns serverz, I chose to use 8.8.8.8 (Google s dns) and 75.75.75.75 (Comcast dns) good luck

      For those of you having problem connecting to the internet using my method, use DHCP. Don’t use static IP. It may take longer to connect but it will connect eventually. the “obtaining IP address” error could be caused by poor signal.

    For those who can’t use the ineternet but gets connected to the wifi here is what you should do.
    after changing to IP address static wait till it gets connected then go back to wifi settings while it is still connected and change back to DHCP it would remain connected and you can access the internet.

    Remember do not disconnect before changing back to DHCP

          Don’t write anything in proxy. And in static, write the IP of your choice.

    I use a free public wifi most of the time but it kicks my ass when it kicks me out of connection and when I try to reconnect it will obtain IP address forever, which stops me from using the hotspot for the day at least. I would like to know what could be the cause of that? can I use a static ip on a wifi I have never successfully connected to because of the obtaining ip address error? I’m using a Samsung galaxy pocket neo and I don’t know it’s ip address, do you know how I can see it?

    I faced the problem again today and I followed your instructions and it worked very very well.

    However, why does this happen ?
    Is there anything wrong with my phone or is it the problem of the wi fi ?

    Your solution depends on having successfully connected to the wifi. I do not get connected . The device tries to connect & then gives me “failed to obtain address”.So advanced setup do not show .

    i found a permanent fix on this by not using the static ip. first you need another android phone. your phone and the other android phone should be rooted. and can access the root explorer and transfer files. first is you want to go to your root explorer and go to system/etc/dhcpcd. delete the file dhcpcd-run-hooks. most probably this file is corrupted. then go to your next android phone which is working fine. you need to go to the same address in the root explorer system/etc/dhcpcd and copy the file dhcpcd-run-hooks to your memory card. transfer your memory card to your defective phone where you deleted the previous file dhcp-run-hooks. paste the file on the same directory. then exit. try to connect to wifi and it should work fine now. tested on my phone which is having the same problem before.

    Hi!
    Okay, so I have searched and searched for a reason/explanation/solution to this problem all day, and it is absolutely driving me insane because I cannot fix this problem!

    My son received an android tablet for Christmas. It is nothing fancy like a Samsung or anything like that. It is called Epik and it is meant mostly for kids (although I do enjoy some games on it occasionally). I bought it on Walmart.com (again, it is not meant to be fancy, my son is 5), so I am not expecting anything spectacular. However, I do expect it to friggin work! When I set it up, it was working great. Since then, it has been working just fine. I have a fairly new wireless router (Netgear) and have updated all my firmware and so on and so on.
    So this morning, as I am enjoying my quiet time, I get on the tablet and start playing my games. The wifi is fine. The next thing I know, the wifi shuts off and now it won’t connect at all!! WTF! I troubleshoot like my life depends on it. Tried every trick in the book (or online) and it still won’t stay connected. I have a 5.0, there has never been an issue with it until this morning. Wifi stays on. I can connect to my phone’s hotspot (but don’t do it for long because I have limited data) but it won’t connect to my home router. This is what it would do:
    It shows up on the available wifi list. I click on it to connect. I enter the password. It does its thing then shows connected for about 3 seconds then drops again. It DOES NOT stay connected. If I was to live or die because of this thing, I would not be here writing this! Every single device in this household can connect. We have 3 laptops, two other tablets, an ipod, 4 phones, and a bluetooth device that connects with no problem at all. We have been connecting for over two years! We have visitors that come over and connect with no problems. This tablet was fine up until today so I do not know what the heck is going on. It also says on the information page that there is no IP address available. I tried connecting to the appropriate IP to no avail. I then tried the switch to static trick, still nothing. I’ve updated, rebooted, reset….nothing! Please tell me what to do. My only other option is to try and get Walmart to send me another one and I don’t want to have to go through all that again. It is a perfectly decent device, I just don’t understand why the wifi got disconnected in the first place. Thank you!!

      Maybe your router is set to let limited device connect to it. Browse through its setting and see if you can do anything. If that;s not the issue then you can try resetting your device. and if even that doesn’t do the trick then you have no other option than to ask for refund or exchange it. Sorry i could’t be of much help.

    For Android version 2.x to 4.0

    Go to Settings and select Wireless and Networks.
    Turn on Wi-Fi and enter Wi-Fi settings.
    (To enter wifi settings press down and hold the network you want to use to connect to the internet that is trying to obtain an IP address and it will take you to the settings menu).
    Press Menu and select Advance.
    Check Use Static IP and assign the values according to the screenshot.

    You can use IP address of your choice.

    Here’s a little more info…
    After the above steps have been completed…

    1) Press save
    2) shut off wifi (This is an important step!)
    3)Turn wifi back on
    4)It should now automatically connect to the new IP after having restarted wifi
    5)NOW go back in and change static to DHCP while still connected to IP
    6)Now you should be able to connect to the internet with the new IP addy

    Hope this further clarifies…

    P.S. If you shut off or reboot your phone it may reset to original default and you will have to reenter the information.

    This stupid bug is very annoying. Seems to be related to classless static routes on the network. Droid people say they do it the right way and the rest of the world is wrong.

    If you have access to the router config and can add something like “dhcp-option=121,192.168.1.0/24,192.168.1.1” to it, and it may solve the issue. Your router will need to accept such configuration as well (which is not always the case). My example uses 192.168.1.1 as the router, tune it to your network if you want to try this. This is for DNSMasq btw.

    You can also try to force the gateway with “dhcp-option=lan,3,192.168.1.1”.

    In any case, if you just set the phone to static IP and it still doesn’t work. Try to disable wifi, wait 3 secs, enable wifi again and it should work.

    The main problem I have with leaving the static IP from the DHCP lease is that the next time you connect to that network you will most likely have an IP conflict (because of someone else using the same IP). Not to mention that mobile devices should be able to connect to Wireless easily.

    The fact that Droids are the only systems that have this problem is even more annoying. Even my old PALM connects fine. Old Wii connects fine as well.

    I FOUND MY OWN DAMN SOLUTION AND I BELIEVE IT IS A PERMANENT FIX AT THE HEART OF THE PROBLEM, NOT A WORKAROUND.

    CHANGE YOUR DHCP RESERVATIONS ON YOUR MODEM CONFIGURATION SETTINGS ONLINE!
    ITS NOT THAT TECHNICAL I PROMISE, IT’S QUITE EASY. YOU JUST HAVE TO FIND THE RIGHT SETTINGS IN YOUR MODEM’S CONFIGURATION.

    Hi, I spent hours trying to fix this problem on my Android running Nexus 5x and feel I owe it to anyone on here THE SOLUTION I FOUND!!!!!!!!!!!

    The problem was, my home is apparently too popular a place, as we had too many devices log onto the wifi over several years. We ran out of unique IP addresses… or “DHCP? addresses?”… to associate with individual devices connected to my home network/wifi. These individual addresses are assigned to connected devices so that bits of information you request with any device when doing anything online are delivered to the right place: the correct device.

    TO FIX THIS: you must either delete random devices that have “reserved” IP or DHCP addresses, or you must change the total number of IP addresses that your router can assign “dynamically”.

    1) Log into router configuration, to do so, type in your appropriate http://192.168. whatever into the browser address bar. It should take you directly to a login screen instead of an internet search.
    2) Password and username are either on your modem sticker or they are just both “admin”. You can call your Internet Service Provider (ISP) to figure this out, or google this in and of itself.
    3) On my frontier actiontec modem, I went to “Advanced Setup” -> under “Broadband Settings” -> either “DHCP Settings” and/or “DHCP Reservation”.

    4a) For “DHCP Settings”, change only the “Ending DHCP Address”. Simply increase the last number group listed on the IP looking address. Mine was “192.xxx.xxx.128” and I increased it to “192.xxx.xxx.140”, enough for 12 more devices to connect to our wifi!

    4b) If you now go into “DHCP Reservation”, you should be able to see a list of all the devices that have ever had a unique IP/DHCP address associated with them listed with their MAC addresses. For me, we literally had 128 unique devices that had connected to our network in the past. So I deleted one (192.xxx.xxx.99), before I figured out I could increase the number allowed as in step 4a), and my phone finally connected just like that. The problem was these little addresses were maxed out!!!

    So you can either increase the limit as in step 4a) or delete individual random MAC addresses “remove” them, as in step 4b). I SUGGEST USING STEP 4A) OVER STEP 4B)

    HOPE THIS WORKS FOR YOU TOO!!! I TRIED SO MANY THINGS AND THIS WAS IT, THIS IS MY SUCCESS STORY.

    PEACE AND LOVE AND GOOD LUCK

    GENIUS! I followed the instructions and it worked! Few minor adjustments probably due to different phone models (I have a Samsung s7).
    1. Click on ‘wifi’
    2. Long-press on the desired wifi connection and a drop down menu will appear
    3. Click on ‘Manage network settings’
    4. Click on ‘Show advanced options’
    5. Change IP settings to Static and type in the values in the screenshot
    6. Re-click the desired wifi connection >> manage network settings >> show advanced options >> change the IP address to the one you desire (leave everything else untouched)
    7. Should work

    THANK YOU SO MUCH. Was so distressed from the ‘No IP address obtained’

    How does one get this to function when the router is deliberately *not broadcasting* the SSID?

    My router radio signal is *not visible* to anyone but MY laptop.

    My cellphone will NOT find the SSID in this manner, I do not want the signal visible so how does one alter the phone’s WI-FI to *find* the unbroadcast SSID?
