T-Mobile curve 8320 Wi-Fi won't fully connect
I have a T-Mobile Curve 8320. I had a Linksys router a few months ago and changed to a netgear rangemax.
Now my phone and my wife's phone (same model) both see the network and connect to it, but there is a yellow indicator and the Wi-Fi icon on our blackberry desktops doesn't go black (active).
We have crap T-Mobile service and I am hoping someone can help, thanks!
I have deleted all Wi-Fi connections, re-added just this one, pulled the battery out, and lowered my channel on my router to 2.
edit: I just did the Wi-Fi Diagnostics on the phone and it says under UMA Connection: (red X) then Error Code: W006.1

Do you have another router upstream of your Netgear? My wifi router went dead a couple months ago, and I had to jerry-rig my network to have cable modem to wired router to travel wifi router. Could not get UMA to pass through the wired router. I was forced to setup the travel router's IP as a DMZ in the upstream wired router. Once I did that, the wired router allowed all the protocols needed for my UMA to come back to life.

I have the same issue and error code when I ran the diagnostic here at my sis' house. UMA works fine for me at home and at other places but here it will connect and have her SSID on the screen without giving me UMA.
I have T-Mobile and an 8320 too. Tried all the above mentioned suggestions for this certain error code (changed channel that was conflicting with another router in range) but no go still.
Any suggestions? This si really ticking me off!!
