Using Pixel2XL - can not get past "Obtaining IP Address" when trying to connect to Tello's wifi network. Have tried a factory reset on the Tello, have forgotten network, uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Still getting the same problem. Can't get connected at all. Worked when I first got it, but will not work now for some reason. Can't find anything online about it. Help?

Rocking a Pixel XL as well. Few more steps:
  • Make sure VPN services are not enabled
  • Go to Settings, Apps & notification, search Google Play services, tap Storage, Clear Cache. Try connection to Tello's SSID again.
  • Or Nuclear option : Go to Systems, Advanced, Reset options, Reset Wi-Fi, mobile & Bluetooth
* Last option resets all connectivity credentials so your call

Was it involved in a crash? Wondering, not accusing.

Pixel's on the latest Android OS?

Do you have another device to connect with?

For giggles, try setting a static IP:
  • IP = 192.168.10.2
  • Gateway = 192.168.10.1
  • Subnet = 255.255.255.0

I have the same issue.
Airplane mode is on, mobile data is off. Tello was reset, network deleted from my phone.

Still stuck on "Obtaining Ip address"

None of the above mentioned solutions worked. Will try with another phone/tablet -- that seems to the last resort for me

How could I change gateway of drones? to connect two drones simultaneously? because making swarm using a router not allows to use cameras..

My issue rectified itself eventually.

I took out my battery for a while. -- that did the job for me!
