Inspire suddenly doesn't want to connect to my wifi

I've had my Inspire for about two months now, with no problems with the wifi whatsoever.  Earlier today I left home, used some data while out and about, and when I came home, my Inspire will not connect to my wifi.  When I go to 'settings', it shows that it is scanning, connecting, obtaining the wifi address, then then it disconnects.  It keeps repeating the cycle.  I've shut it off, I've taken out the battery for a moment and put it back in, and turned it back on, I've tried 'forgetting' the network and then re-entering.  Still the same problem.  This is the first time something like this has happened. 

 

I don't believe it is my router; my computer and my iPod both connect with no problems at all.

 

Any advice?

Power cycle the router, sometimes that's all it takes.

Heh, oftentimes, its the simple solution that works.  "Just turn it off, and back on again"   :-)
