    Hi

    I'm getting a bit frustrated with my 8320 in terms of setting up wifi

    For example, at home I've located my WPA protected wireless network, connected to it but within the 'Manage Connections' screen of my blackberry, it's got a yellow sign next to it - What does this mean?

    The diagnostics are shown below... the VPN section doesnt look to healthy..

    Wi-Fi
    Current Profile: Home
    SSID: XXXXXX
    AP MAC Address: 00:0F:B5:BC:09:32
    Security Type: Pre-Shared Key (PSK)
    Local IP Address: 192.168.0.6
    Signal Level: -59 dBm
    Connection Data Rate: 54 Mbps
    Status: Network acquired

    VPN
    Current Profile:
    Concentrator Address:
    Contact: N/A
    Authentication: Error
    Secure Device IP:
    Status: Error: VPN profile is not found.

    UMA
    Connection Pref.: Wi-Fi Preferred
    UMA Wi-Fi Available: Successful
    Connection: Error
    Error Code:
    Status: Establishing UMA connection...

    BlackBerry Infrastructure
    Connecting: Error
    Authenticating router: N/A
    Authenticating server: N/A


    So... to test my wifi connection, I turned off GPRS and opened up the standard browser. It did manage to locate Google, suggesting it works albeit quite slowly

    I then tried to access the web via Opera... no luck. Sure I can browse via wifi on Opera?

    I then had a go at Google Maps, but to no avail..it couldnt connect

    So in summary... how do I get all these apps to use wifi instead of GPRS??

    Any help appreciated - it's driving me mental!

    No you cant browse opera with just wifi. you have to have data plan. I too, was mislead into thinking you can operate opera solely on wifi but NOPE it uses data and the plan.

    That is so cr*p. I'm starting to think this phone is a brick. My data plan on Orange UK is miserly, so I thought wifi would be a useful backup. But no... it seems like it can only be used to browse on the standard browser... and that's it.

    Utter rubbish.

    I dont think any third party supports wifi yet, just some RIM apps.
