Android phone not connecting to WiFi

At home I have an internet connection and a wireless router. Some equipment is connected wired (ethernet) and other through WiFi. My Android phone automatically connects to my wireless when I arrive at home. Regularly I discover that it does not work, that is to say the phone is connected to the router but is not connected to the internet. The phone also gets no IP address from the DHCP server of the of the Internet provider. >> >>

Connecting MacBook Air to a WiFi

I am very new to Apple with my recently acquired MacBook Air. I had great difficulties connecting it to a WiFi. It was not difficult to connect it to a Time Capsule, but a third party WiFi (SiteCom) gave problems. The MacBook Air did connect but there was no internet. As always I used DHCP for the TCP/IP connection and the DHCP ip-addresses were correctly set. After a few hours I changed the ip-address protcol  from from DHCP to BootP which is an option in the Advanced part of the network configuration tool. After that it worked perfectly. >> >>
