Have you tried disabling any firewalls on your router?

If others experience this problem, the router was a D-Link and the solution was to unplug the router. Once power was restored to router phone found it on first search.

Not sure what the issue might be but with my home router (D-Link also) it took me nearly 10 tries to get connected to the wifi network. Once it got connected tho, I had no problems.
