I've got Tomato USB running on an Asus RT-N16 and it's been running fine for about a month. But I just got an Asus Transformer tablet and it won't connect. I also tried my Droid phone and no luck with that either. Then I tried a friend's Google Nexus and it wouldn't connect either. All the devices can see the network but when I try to connect they hang at obtaining an IP address. I've tried setting them statically but still no joy. I've got several kinds of computers (PCs, Macs) running everything from Win7 to Ubuntu that can connect just fine but NO Android devices will connect. Anyone got any ideas as to why? I'd really appreciate the help. This is very frustrating.

@icemachine79 What version of TomatoUSB and security settings are you running? I've had Android devices connect to my RT-N16 running various Toastman builds for over a year. I use WPA2 Personal - AES. Did you turn on MAC filtering or some other setting accidentally that's stopping these devices from connecting?
Thanks for the replies guys. I'm using essentially the same settings as leandroong as far as security, and I'm using DHCP (assigned by mac address). Weird thing is that the devices connect to the router and the signal strength is excellent; they just can't pull an IP address.
Think I've got it figured out now. The Android thing was just a coincidence. Under Advanced -> DHCP / DNS there's a setting for the amount of DHCP leases given at any one time and it was only set at "10". I've already got several computers all pulling static leases from the router so it was full up. Oops. Thanks for the help anyway though.
