My wifi was perfectly working a few days back, but now all of a sudden all I get is connecting-disconnecting-scanning loop. It never connects. Help.

I'm on Android 2.3.5 | Wildfire S | Rooted Here's my log:

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

    
I'm going to close this as "localized" since the issue stems from your specific Wi-Fi software rather than an Android issue, though feel free to accept your own answer. –  eldarerathis Jul 3 '12 at 13:30

I had this problem on my t101 tablet. Sometimes, " forgetting" the network entry would work, but my final fix was this: I set my phone up as a hotspot and connected my tablet to that. After doing that twice my tf101 has connected to my router without fault. It's not a satisfying answer. Things shouldn't be so clunky, but here we are.

This was a problem with the routing software Connectify.
