Exclamation My Wifi is not working.. "Failed to Obtain an IP address"

Please Login to Remove!


I went out of town for a couple of days, and so I turned off my mobile network so I wouldn't have to pay roaming charges if I received a text message or calls.

When I came back home, my Blackberry was telling me it was connected to my Home Wifi, however, the Browser wasn't working, Twitter and Facebook weren't either, and when I clicked on AppWorld, I was told "this data service is not operational".

Some time later, the phone would not even acknowledge the WiFi. I looked at my manage networks, and found that beside the WiFi, instead of a green checkmark, there was a white dash. Now, whenever i try to connect to any WiFi, it says it has "failed to obtain and IP address". I do not have a data plan, and prior to this, I was able to pick up WiFi and use it on my device.

Any help would be greatly appreciated ! Thank you !
