Thanks for your post here. I'm happy to see that you got your update and everything is working well (with the one exception of course)
So that we know exactly what is happening here, can you tell me exactly what is happening and the steps you have taken to resolve it?
Please include any error messages you get and the steps you are taking to connect.
Let me know and we’ll be happy to help you further

Try resetting the Router.
On the back should be a little "pen hole". Use a pen or pencil to press this, hold for 10 seconds and release. Turn your phone off then back on. They both should connect now. Usually an IP range error, rebooting the router usually re-sorts the IP addresses. Rebooting the phone allows it to see the newly reordered range.

Thanks for the response soupdragon. I'm aware of all that. The IP address on the phone is exactly the same as that reported by the wireless modem/router, as is the MAC address. Why should upgrading the DHD firmware change anything?
As I said, I do have wi-fi access to the modem/router (I can bring up the setup pages in the DHD browser (both the default and Dolphin) - so wi-fi communication with the modem/router is working. The problem is no access beyond to web-based sources.... That's why I'm thinking in terms of the DHD internet protocols being borked somehow.
As I also said, all other kit accessing the modem/router wirelessly is connecting with the web with no probs. This is why I think I've narrowed the probs back to the phone.

I've got it working at last with my home wireless modem/router - but only by mannually assigning a fixed IP address, sub mask, gateway, primary DNS etc. Obviously no good away from home!!
I'll run it that way for a few hours, then try to get it working with dynamically assigned addresses.
I'll update you after I've tried that.
(maybe Gingerbread trashed the dynamic DNS assignment algoritms?)

Wi-fi modem/router sees it, and connection is made (I manually input WEP key) - but no web browsing functionality "Page unobtainable".
Revert back to manually assigned IP address etc - works just fine...
Must be auto DNS protocol borked - as all other devices in house (including iPhone) working just fine.
Hope this helps...
