    Hello,
    I went back from vacations yesterday and sadly when I came back home and turned wifi on my z30 was unable to connect to my home network.

    Actually it says at first "unable to authenticate to the network" and then when it tries to connect the phone reaches on the first step "associated to the network" but can't go ahead.

    I already tried deleting all the saved networks and I've restarted my router too, but nothing seems working.

    All the other devices in the house (phones, desktops and laptops) are perfectly connected.

    I couldn't find much on the web or in CB, but it seems a common problem introduced with OS 10.2 (i'm running 10.2.1.2977).

    Any idea?

    Thanks!

    If its a common problem with the OS, looks like you need to reload the OS and drop down to something more compatible.

    Did it work BEFORE vacation?

    No, no, no.

    Before going through madness try some simple stuff.

    If your a techy person that is.
    What kind of authentication do you have setup?
    Wep, wpa, wpa2?
    What OS are you running?
    What kind of router do you use?

    Can you setup a second network and test?
    Can you set the network to open and test?
    Can your device connect to another Wifi network not in your home?

    I'll be quite honest the main reason you see this issue a lot is because the routers are ****! Although it seems like a BlackBerry problem 9/10 times it's the networking layer piece. I spent $250 on a solid Wifi router and it works Mint! Z30STA100-5/10.2.1.3247

    Let us know.

    Before vacation wifi on my z30 was working smoothly.

    I use a wpa/wpa2 personal authentication, and running OS 10.2.1.2977 (no updates available).

    As router I'm actually using one from fastweb, my Internet provider, but I can't find specific name.

    I can't test in these days (i'm sick) if the phone reaches on connecting to another wifi network, and sadly I'm not sure about what you mean asking "to setup a second network" (you mean though my home router?) and "set the network to open".

    Thanks for your help and sorry about my bad knowledge.

    That's ok.

    Just as a test change your authentication from WPA to open and try.

    How long have you had the Z30 working on this router before your vacation ?

    It's a stretch but maybe your router was hacked. If you know how to reconfigure it do a hard Reset and start over on the router.

    Until you can get out of the house, is there someone else there that can set up a hot spot on their phone and see if you can connect to wifi that way?

    Next BBM update....BBM Peek

    Ok, so I made some test and my Z30 can actually connect without any problem either to a public wi-fi or trough tethering with another mobile device.

    Therefore that the problem is related to my own home connection.

    Yesterday I got on my BB the leaked 10.3.0.296 (hybrid) which is working fine but didn't resolve the problem (same issue).

    Any other things I may do?

    How can it be the router if all the other devices in the house are perfectly working?

    (serious question, no joking!)

    BTW is there any way I can share my connection from my Mac to my z30 via usb in the meanwhile?

    Honestly I went through the same thing a while back.

    For some reason BlackBerry has a problem working with really ****ty routers. Especially when the connection gets dropped and it tries to reconnect. I spent so much money switching from linksys to dlink to netgear to Asus and always had problems. The price range was 30-100$ for all of them.

    Then I finally bit the bullet and bought an Asus RT-AC68U ($275) tax in. I've gone 6 months and only one reboot of the router.

    My Blackberries don't have any issues connecting to this router.

    If it's an imac, you can connect it to your router via Ethernet cable and share the Internet access through its wireless card, so basically create a new wireless network that ur BlackBerry can connect to...

    Z30 Pooooooooower!
