Default New wifi issue

Please Login to Remove!

I am home in Spain and have connected many times with my 8900 to my home router; when I get home it usually connect automatically as it is a "saved" connection.
All of a sudden it isn't connecting and when I try to connect manually I get "failed to find an IP address". How frustrating: for weeks it works perfectly and next minute this problem.
HELP PLEASE?

I had already tried the battery pull with no luck, but on your suggestion I have rebooted the router and it seems to have done the trick.
Thank you SOOOO much. (Muchas Gracias Senor)
