On Friday night, I was trying to connect to the hotspot on my phone, but after a while of saying "Obtaining IP Address..." It said "IP Configuration Failure". So, I changed my IP address to static, which did allow me to connect to the hotspot, but I couldn't access the Internet. I can still connect to other Xfinity public hotspots perfectly. Is there anything else I can do? Or is it a problem with the hotspot router itself?
