    My pb suddenly refuses to connect to my home wifi. It will happily connect to other wifi sources. Other devices happily connect to my home wifi. So, after many months of perfect operation, even after the 2.1 update, it decides to act up. Anybody have some (helpful) suggestion?

    some people has experienced kinds of problem the same to you. Making a full back-up and wipe your PB is my suggestion ^^

    Delete that saved wifi connection and recreate it.

    Any other changes - new cordless phones or other wireless devices that might share that frequency?

    For some routers the PB doesn't like the N. Change your router to G.

    Thanks F2! That was the ticket! Delete the account and reestablish it. Maybe that's not "sticky" worthy to most but. It was to me. I did a search before I posted and didn't see that answer. Once again, thanks to F2 and the crackberry community!

    that trick fixes quite a few bugs.. like not being to install apps from appworld, and for me at times it shows connected to wifi but doesn't really manage to do anything online..

    Glad it worked. The idea is generally to start with the least destructive actions. No real harm removing a wifi connection and recreating it.
