Clear the cache, history and cookies on your phone. Unplug your router for 1 minute and reconnect and with your phone on, take out the battery and sim for 30 seconds and replace. It should connect after that.

Follow the solution above. But it your router allows it, use the pushbutton pairing. That adds a profile on your router for your phone and makes it super simple.

Let your browser load then tap on the lower left button on the phone to bring up the smaller menu. Go into Settings then Privacy and Security and delete the cache from there.

If you find that doesn't work try logging into your router settings usually 198.162.1.1 and make sure static ip address option under wireless is disabled. If still no luck upgrade the firmware on the router then if that still doesn't work buy a better router.
