Default BB9700 - Problem connecting to home Wi-Fi Network

Please Login to Remove!

Good morning,

I hope you can help me. I've just upgraded to a Blackberry 9700, my first smartphone. Everything is brilliant except I'm having difficulty connecting to my home Wi-Fi network (A Netgear Wireless-N Series Router - DGN1000).

I've followed the manual set-up procedure, and find the network, enter the Network Key, and it finds it and allocates my BB an IP address, however the "Wi-Fi" logo stay's grey even though next to the "Vodafone" text it also say's "Home" (the name I allocated to the Wi-Fi connection profile)

When I go to the "Manage Connections" option, it shows "Vodafone" in Green with a green tick next to it, but the Wifi has the network name in green but a "-" sign. When I go to the diagnostics bit I get the following results (Edited to remove personal data - numbers replaced with #):

My boyfriends iPhone connects no problem. However when I run the "ping" function it times out regardless of the IP address I'm pinging.

Any ideas?
