Solution to Fix “Obtaining IP address” error on Android mobile phone

Few days back I flashed a new ROM in my Motorola Fire XT and everything gone fine except WiFi Connection.When I try to connect to my WiFi router it got struck at Obtaining IP address and got disconnected.The process was

  • Obtaining IP Address
  • Disconnecting
  • Scanning

It was a strange thing for me but later I solved this problem successfully.Follow the steps given below carefully to fix that error.

This error is due to the WiFi router couldn’t assign the IP address for Android mobile or Android Tablet.To solve it,go to Settings and select Wireless and Networks.

Turn on the WiFi and enter into Wi-Fi settings.After that Press the Menu button on your Android select Advanced option.

You will be carried to WiFi Advanced Settings for Assigning Static IP Address,Gateway,Netmask and DNS.Pick the Static IP and assign the values given in the Screenshot.

IP address : >It is not compulsory to put 107 you can put any values between 0 to 255 instead of 107.Make sure there shouldn’t be any IP address conflict when you put IP address.

Gateway :

Netmask :

DNS 1 :

DNS 2 :

It recommended to use the Google DNS server given here or else you may use the DNS which is provided by your ISP.

I hope your problem is solved now if not then let me know via comments :)

Thanks a lot sir, I have tried all sort of wi-fi fixers type of app. but of no use on my recent Yu Yureka Cynogen OS android mobile, but static IP configuration hardly took time to solve the Obtaining IP Address problem.
Thanks again.
