    Default Connecting to wi-fi but "Unable to find the requested server"

    Bold 9900-connecting to Wi-Fi but "unable to find the requested server"Options
    Hello!

    I got my 9900 in August and haven't had this problem before.

    I can connect to my Wi-Fi -- it shows as connected, strong connection etc. But when I try to go to any site on my browser I get "Unable to find the requested server.

    This is on my home wi-fi. But my laptop and Wii are still fine so it's only on my phone.

    However, I discovered I AM able to connect to other wi-fis with my phone - just not the one at home.

    The problem originated right when I was downloading some software upgrades. I wasn't really paying much attention to what I was doing and I'm not even sure how I got into downloading these upgrades because I'd never done that before. Anyway, one of the downloads seemed to have gotten stuck mid-way through downloading.

    Does that make sense? I'm really annoyed by this and really want to use wi-fi on my phone at home!

    Thank you!

    Try another wifi network, see if you'll get that message again.

    If it happens again, it's your device. Else, restart/change your home wifi.

    I have a 9700 and came up against the same problem. My wifi was working fine for months at home...but then went to a coffee shop, used the free wifi, came back home and it wouldn't work! Solved the problem by going to:

    Manage Connections - Wifi Options - Restore Default Settings.

    I got this before, a battery pull or alt+shift+del will fix it.

    I have gotten that a few times and reconnecting (after removing the profile) or a battery pull did the trick.

    GNU/Linux distros of choice: Ubuntu, Mint (or anything based on debian that's still geared towards beginners and isn't too bloated).

    Do you have Fixmo installed? I had this problem and after I removed Fixmo, no more problems.

    Have you checked that the router is actually assigning an ip address to your blackberry by going into Wi-Fi Diagnosis from within wifi options?

    Default UNABLE TO FIND REQUESTED SERVER FIX! (Wi-Fi)

    FIX!
    Options/Networks and Connections/Wi-Fi Network/BB Button/Options/Scroll Down
    To "Reset Settings"/Ok
    then reconnect to your Wi-Fi

    It worked for me

    Sounds like a router issue. Sounds like the router is sending out WIFI signal but NO internet
