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
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!

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 have gotten that a few times and reconnecting (after removing the profile) or a battery pull did the trick.Flamers, don't even try, I have my waterhose ready
GNU/Linux distros of choice: Ubuntu, Mint (or anything based on debian that's still geared towards beginners and isn't too bloated).
