I'm having trouble connecting to the internet via my Nook through my home connection. I have a laptop that has no trouble connecting wirelessly. So I know my wireless works. I contacted Barnes and Noble and they indicated that since the Nook is an "E reader" with wireless access it may not be connecting to router because of the settings. They suggested a 64 bit WEP. So I changed my settings, however, still no luck. I see the router as a wireless option with great signal strength on my Nook, however, it shows that it is "obtaining IP address from linksys..." but it can't connect. Any suggestions???? I have a WRT54G v.6 router and cable internet

There was no security originally and after enabling security to WEP, I disabled all the security again. Still no go. It just continues to show that it's obtaining the IP address but it never connects.

try if by setting a static IP and static DNS on both devices will connect?
Do you have a working wireless pc/laptop connected to your wireless router?

I'm not sure how to set up a static IP an DNS on both devices...I actually don't think I can set up anything on the NOOK. I do have a wireless laptop that will connect, but again my Nook won't. I've tried a few things to no avail.

I have and it has no problems connecting at any other location with wireless access other than my home. I have even been able to connect via Linksys at a family members home, however, I cannot connect through my router. Its not the Nook. I'm pretty sure its the router.

Hard reset the router and reconfigure it. If the problem sill exist, update the firmware or re-flash with the latest firmware. Hard reset again, power cycle and reconfigure it.
