Nook wireless connection issues
#11  kilmar 01-06-2011, 11:10 AM
I have the same issue with my Linksys WRT54GS running the latest DD-WRT. I checked all the settings and they seem to be ok. 4 laptops at home work fine. The HTC EVO, another android device has the same issue, but can be resolved by using static IP which cannot be done on the nook color.

I might just go ahead buy a new router. The WRT54GS has served me for over 8 years so I'm a little sad to see it go. I named it Oscar and pet it from time to time.

So I guess I have to root before I can go static. Thanks.

Unless B&N comes up with an alternate procedure, yes, rooting would be required. There are, however, other potential methods for dialing in a static IP address based on the devices MAC address and your router's capabilities.

I haven't had any WI FI issues but apparently there is a flaw with connectivity that will be fixed by end of month. See post RE update 1.1 coming in Jan

I am having the same problem with my nook color connecting to my Linksys router. It keep giving the message "searching for router IP" and then ends with "unsuccessfull".
How do I change the router settings to correct this?

This is just a finicky device. If you do a search on the issue there is a site where people are posting their specific routers that work well. I have a very nice netgear 3000 router that connected but then would quickly lose connection. I found an older netgear wgt624 router that works perfectly. You can tell when your pandora app will play consistently.

The real issue is knowing that there will be many places you will go that this device won't work. It sucks, but the nook is so nice I may have to swallow that one. I hope they can fix this issue with a software update, although 1.1 doesn't do it.

No issues yet to speak of.

I have a Linksys WTR160N. When I first rooted, I had no problems but in the last several weeks it has tended to lose the connection. Just as others a toggle off/on reconnects but it wouldn't stay connected. Reading some of the posts here, I did two things and it has stayed connected all day today. The two things are 1) (this hint came from Scion) get the Spare parts app and set "WiFi Sleep Policy" to "Never" & 2) getting the SoftLocker app and enabling it. Softlocker prevents the NC from going to sleep but you can still turn the screen off as usual.

I plan to try each one independently to see how that works but haven't gotten to that yet. I may get lazy and just leave it since it seems to be working OK now.

I have been trying to connect to my wireless connection for the past month, but when I do the divice still doesn't connect. After getting nowhere with the help line, I asked the rep at B&N and she told me to call and ask my internet service provider.
