Default Wifi on 8900 problems :(

Please Login to Remove!

hi guys..
i have a curve 8900
and i didnt get blackberry unlimited on my mobile contract (therefore i dont get unlimited free internet)
so i have to use wifi..
but i cant!

initially i scanned for a wifi connection and it detected the wifi i used in my house..so i used the internet..unfortunately i was actually using the GPRS so it was costing me money!

my friends said that i had to switch that off..to allow wifi to work

so i went to manage connections - mobile network options - data services - off...that switched off my GPRS and now its gprs (lower case)
so im not paying money anymore..

but when i go to manage connections..wifi is ticked, it has detected my wifi signal at home "NETGEAR (home)" but theres only a white (-) beside it not a green tick!

and then when i go to the browser it says data services are disabled...but thats the only way i can get the GPRS to lower case (gprs)

so what all options must i have on/off for wifi to be my only method of using the internet?

my phone can detect the wifi signals and give me the info on them..it just wont use it :S and the "wifi" is dim and not lit up

thanks
