- Hi there
I am Rob and I've just got my first ever BlackBerry. I have had it a week and its a 8120 PEARL. Its with O2.
I have used - MANAGE CONNECTIONS - SET UP WI-FI NETWORK - SCAN FOR NETWORKS
I then select my connection and enter the correct Network Key.
What is confusing me is that. On my main screen, it shows the grey wi-fi icon and also the name of my wi-fi profile name on the screen
However when I check the MANAGE CONNECTIONS page, it is still showing the WI-FI as a small yellow button with a line through as opposed to a green button with a tick. So I presume that it is not connected.
Please someone help me before my phone is thrown out of the window. I am starting to think the phone maybe too technical for me?!

- I am still having WIFI connection problems. On the main screen it shows the name of my connection, but the wi-fi icon is greyed out, plus on the MANAGE CONNECTION the yellow buton is still showing newt to wi-fi.
I thought I would test the wifi to see whether it works by tuning off the mobile network, keeping the WIFI switiched on and using the browser. I tried to load a page, but it didnt work.
I have had a look at the WIFI dagnostics for my wifi connection and it shows a red cross against the BLACKBERRY INFRASTRUCTURE - CONNECTNG. I'm guessing this is not a good sign?
Can anyone help?04-01-08 03:57 PM
- also make sure you router doesnt have an access list set up and that DHCP is enabled to give out an IP.
As for the icon being gray...well that may just be you dont have a connection to a BES, i use my wifi all the time at work via wi-fi and the icon on the main screen is in gray and on the connections screen i have a yellow dot by my wi-fi connection.....04-02-08 03:39 AM

Browser on a Curve is reason enough to pack a 'Berry.
Once our Canadian carrier emerges from the stone age of price gouging, I am looking forward to the real CrackBerry experience. 'Till then, I am holding my Rogers shares and racking in the dough!04-16-08 09:34 PM
