    It seems on the 9930 that 8 out of 10 times I use wifi web pages will not load with a server not found error. I turn off wifi and it will load the page with a refresh. This has happened on two bolds across two different OS. Is this a documented thing?

    I think it might be a your-network thing. My WiFi works flawlessly. In fact the 9900's browser might be quicker than the PlayBook's on WiFi.

    What kind of network thing? My computer works fine as well as my printer on the same network. It does seem to happen more at work though.

    Wifi works perfectly on my 9930. Enabled wifi, entered my WPA key and it was good to go.

    I feel like the BB 9930 doesn't pick up WIFI signals as well as the 9650 did. When at home it picks it up with 2 bars, however with my 9650 it had a stronger signal. Nothing has changed with the network at home either.

    My problem is not even a problem connecting. I can be connected with full bars and the internet will not load a page until wifi is off.

    When there is a "conflict" between wifi and 4/3G (weak wifi signal, strong 3g) I get this. WHen I'm at home, with my own, strong network, it works great (and so much better than the 9700, it does N and AES, sooo much nicer.)

    My Wifi works great when I'm close to the router but I sure was disappointed at the weakness of it compared to my 9700.

    Certain DLink wireless router have a compatibility issue with blackberries. If you have a DLink router see if it has a firmware upgrade available. I know the popular dir615 was one affected model.

    Turn off your 3G while connected to wifi and see if you can use any data. Facebook, web, emails, whatever.

    When 3G is turned off and wifi is on, is it still using the BB servers or my home setup?

    I own a 9930 and the Wi-Fi works flawlessly. To be frank, I've used it to do everything that the Wi-Fi does. Including the Media Sync (Works Great by the way).

    It's a Feature that has been Good to Me.

    I had the exact opposite with my 9650 and 9930. The 9650 wouldn't work at all but my 9930 works every time.

    It is probably a router problem. Go into the logs of your router and you will probably see that the phone is constantly connecting and then disconnecting. On my routers it would say deauthenticated. In my case it started with a Bold 9000 and iPhone. I couldn't keep them both connected, as one configuration of the router worked for one phone but not the other. I had a Dlink router as noted by a previous poster. When I changed to a new router the problem went away.

    I had similar problems with my Playbook on a Dlink router at my cottage this summer and a router change cured that as well.

    I think some of the routers that use the N protocol have some bugs in the software. In my case both were Dlink routers running their latest software, but since they were older routers the latest software was still a few years old.

    I went to Apple Extreme routers and they seem to work well.

    The were a few 9650 OS's that had the browser click issue when on WiFi. That was so long ago I don't remember which versions of OS5 had that bug. WiFi is great on the 9930.

    I have the 9900 with T-Mobile and i find the wi-fi useless sometimes. The thing is, all T-Mobile phones have UMA/wi-fi calling available. The 9900 doesnt have it and could have it with a future OS update. My old BB Bold 9780 always preferred wi-fi over 3G, but that isn't the case with the 9900. My Bold 9900 just seems to like 4G over wi-fi and i am not sure if this is the case because it is lacking the UMA software capabilities. My 9780 functions perfectly as a device to browse the web even without a sim card. It uses the wi-fi just fine because i use my old 9780 sim card in my new 9900. However, when i took out the sim card in the 9900, it just wouldn't function on wi-fi alone. This leads me to believe the wi-fi is a bit useless on the 9900 T-Mobile verison unless it gets a new OS update to fix it. I also notice my 9900 2G coverage is lousy. This was never the case with my 9780. I always set my 9900 to 2G to save battery life and i notice the 2G coverage has been super spotty. It'll be 2G/EDGE for 1 quick second and then immediately default to GSM or GPRS (whatever that means). I am a bit disappointed in that aspect about the 9900, but this could be the T-Mobile specific variant and not the AT&T and Rogers version, etc issue.

    It's not just the OP, my WiFi also cuts in and out on my 9930 depending where in the house I'm at. Other devices (including other BB's) don't have this issue.
