    A coffee shop I go to has protected Wi-Fi. It shows WPA2. The owner gave me the password, which I tried to enter in my Blackberry, but it wouldn't connect. The coffee shop owner knows nothing about Blackberry. What was I doing wrong? Blackberry said the key needed to be 0-9 digits. The password he told me is longer than that. People were using the Wi-Fi on their laptops. I used the AT&T network on my Blackberry, but I couldn't get the Wi-Fi. Other customers with Blackberry were Verizon and don't have Wi-Fi anyway, so they couldn't help me.

    Should be as simple as using the password. My home network is WPA2 and I have never had a problem connecting on my 8900, 8320, or my wife's G1. Are you entering the characters exactly as they appear like lower case or caps?

    I entered the password exactly as the owner told me. I will try on my laptop next time, because the BB gave me an error message that the code was the wrong number of digits.

    I believe you can manually configure the network on the Blackberry as well but you would only need to do that if it didn't see the right security. I know some people have a tough time with WPA2 and BB but usually it is settings on the routers end.

    Thanks. I kind of figured it had to do with the router. I really couldn't have the owner of the shop adjust his router for me. I'll see what happens next time when I try his Wi-Fi on my laptop.
