I have asked coworkers about a possible resolution and the best they can come up with was either "refer to manufacturer" or send it up to the network team as a low signal issue. Thanks for your time and help with this!

In reply to: I'm guessing you are looking for something of a short list. The most common reason I encounter is failed hardware. Sorry but when I fix this, there are dozens of reasons. Thanks Bob. Can you tell me which brand and model?

WiFi stick? I carry this one because it's a no driver hunt needed for Vista and 7. Just something I carry with me with a high degree of success rates. As the last poster stated there are a dozen reason that could be it. I have this happen to me in several scenarios: In this case I disable the firewall and remove airport completely and reenable it, that does the work on most of my cases.

Blocked Off A Wifi Network? Here Is How To Reconnect!

My issue can't be hardware as I connect just fine at home and anywhere but to my work wireless and other macs are fine on it as well so it is not the router. Try fixing your permissions, that has fixed this issue for me in the past also. Try this You said "remove airport completely and reenable it The gotcha here is that 1 and 3 usually only happens on systems that aren't smart enough check and see if the WIFI connection has accepted the password and OK'd it. On some systems and with some older encryption like WEP, as long as the passcode matched the length of the password required, it would let you connect or rather it would show you connected but with limited connectivity.

This is the state that tends to trick people into thinking they have a good WIFI connection to the network, but something else is wrong, when in fact, they DO NOT have a working connection to the network even at the base security layer before the TCP stack even begins binding. Once this is done, you reconnect to the network and make sure that you're tying in the usually case sensitive password as it's given to you.

If that still doesn't work, then test with another device. If that device works, then you're still making a clarical mistake on the password on your previous device or that device has other network issues. Pretty much all these will require you to probably talk to whomever manages that WIFI network if you still want to connect to it.

It's most helpful to know that the "self-assigned IP" error is misleading. Key piece of info here was suggesting a clerical mistake in entering the password. I didn't type it in, but copied and pasted - that was the cause of my problem. Typing it in carefully solved everything.
