I have a similar problem. ver 4.41. RN171 I can not connect using net password
Starting from the factory reset I put the SSID name for one net without key or authentication. The module RN171 connects Ok and the DHCP assign an IP. Bidirectional communication is properly well.
Then I decide to use a key or a wep 64 authentication in the same net. I put the auth key in wlan phrase, 5 char. The same char as in the wireless net.
The RN171 just connects but no IP address is assigned.
I try with another net and diffrent keys but the same.problem.
I can connects with a password network.
Then I decided to use a static IP address instead of having one assigned via DHCP, I first turn off DHCP and then I set the IP address I like.
set ip dhcp 0 set ip address 192.168.0.100
Impossible communicate with the RN171 I get always the message Associate! But I can not transfer data.
Any idea? Thank you.

I have the same problem. when I write "ftp update" the system give me the number 0.0.0.0 . When I'm using this number that look like an IP the system send me a error message.
Thank you and sorry if this is a stupid doubt,

Hi quan, I guess if it failed to join, then it could not reach home for an ftp update, so let's focus on the join problem.
The Components - WiFly is certainly one key resource, and perhaps that's where you posted this question from. Perhaps even more important, at this stage of your troubleshooting, is the Cookbook - WiFly page, which has a number of communication examples.
On the cookbook page, perhaps half-way down, is a section "More Details", a "Wifly_configure" program and details for using it. This may be the most valuable to ensure that you have the right connections and settings for your interface to the WiFly module. If you follow along in that section, what response do you get from the module?
