    Then it sounds like it is *not* a BB issue. Make sure your router is set to broadcast it's SSID.

    You can always manually add the network.

    When I was using 8820, I had this problem. While it may not be similar in your case, I'd still like to share it.

    Do check the wifi network you're connecting to is not hidden, that's basic but more important, the channel is set to 1 to 12. Your bb doesn't detect channel 13 onwards which is used on some routers.

    On the 8820 (years ago), I had issues connecting to networks broadcast on anything other than channel 11.
