New Router / Wi-Fi now blocks E-mail/BBM
Not often a BB problem that I can't solve myself but I've come across one it seems, so I shall enlist the help of CrackBerry nation.
I'm on a 9900, 18.104.22.1680. Have never had any problems with it other than maybe lackluster battery life due to my ridiculously heavy use. I just picked up a new router the other day for my wireless network, was running an old Linksys unit until picking up this new Netgear router, now capable of dual band 2.4/5GHz, and draft-N.
Connected all my devices to it no problem, laptop, tablets, PBs, iToys, Xbox, TV etc - My 9900 connects to it no problem (to both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands). But once I'm connected, it blocks BBM and E-mails (All BB services other than browsing, strangely) from both sending and receiving. It's ridiculously annoying as I have to turn off wi-fi, re-send, and then turn Wi-Fi back on if I'm downloading something etc.
My router is set to automatically assign IP addresses, WPA2-Personal security, no port-forwarding or anything kinky.
I'm confused as to why there is an issue as I set it up the same way as my older router, the only difference being it's capable of N now, which the 9900 should be fine with.
Anyone else experienced this issue before or have any ideas as to where to start? I feel I've tried all of the obvious fixes. I doubt re-sending service books would do much but that might be worth a shot.
PS for those wondering, the ROI on the router for my PlayBook was astronomical. Performance/speed literally doubled from 15-17 mbps to 30-32 mbps on wireless. (previously could only get that plugged in).
Thanks in advance for any tips/troubleshooting ideas you guys might have. Cheers.
