I've had my Bold for several weeks now and have run into a problem recently.
After reconfiguring my wireless router so I could use my Bold on it, the phone would very easily pick up the wifi signal and I had no problems surfing on wifi.
A couple of days ago, however, it started giving me problems. Now, when I go under Manage Connections and turn on wifi, it picks up the signal from the router, but the indicator next to it stays as a bold white line instead of turning into a green checkmark like it was doing. And it's doing the same thing at school. When I try to go under the wifi hotspot browser, it says something about not being able to connect a network (I can't remember right off; been a few hours since I tried). Any idea what could be causing this and how to fix it?

I suggest completely removing the WIFI profiles that are giving you the problems
stored passwords and all..
pull the battery
when it comes back up re-add your networks and see if it works..
(on the school network you wont be- able to do this)
Also try rebooting the router..
if that doesn't work log into the router and completely disable the key (just for a bit) to see if the bold will connect. If it will connect when you have no key on the network it could be a authentication issue...
Or the lease on the router (the ip address that it gave the bold) may be having a issue renewing.. usually a router reboot would fix it.
let me know how it go's
