Default Re: Wifi problem with 9900

Here's something I discovered after a year of after screwing around with what I thought was a bad device and / or WiFi setup.

On Wireless G and N...if you have a long WiFi (WPA2- PSK) password, the device will connect to WiFi but BIS/BES and Phone connections will not stay connected long and sometimes will not even connect at all.

The solution is simple if that's the case.

Setup a shorter password, or add a new SSID (if your router supports it) for a guest network with a shorter password. I had lots of issues with a 63-character password until I discovered this. No other devices had issues except this stupid Bold, but that's exactly what it was in the end...

I can replicate the problem at will.
