- Manage Connections
- Set up Wi-Fi Connection
- Push Button Set up

The router and the Bold will then have a little conversation, and they should connect up.
Thanks for the info.

Found a couple of things out thanks to this thread.

1. The push method as described by Ivc worked and this sets up the phone to the router.
2. WEP wasn't the issue with my BB, it was the fact that the network was not "visible", Which was a surprise as my wifes Iphone, our PS3, our Wii all connect easily to a hidden network.
3. The Bold is slow on Wifi and 3g. And compared to my wifes iphone very slow. A huge disappointment. So I have taken mine back to store.
4. The setting up of a BB in the UK is not good. Not good at all when you consider the status the BB name has.

Thanks for the info though.
