Default WiFi problem - 8120 Pearl

Please Login to Remove!

Hi there, I am a Blackberry virgin , just found this site, looks great , hopefully get some help which is more than by carrier could offer

I Can't get WiFi to work, carier does not want to know, says it's nothing to do with them
I have a WiFi router in my home, my blackberry can find it when I scan for networks and I have set up a wifi profile on the BB and entered the WEP code. and I have added the BB MAC address to the router secure list. my blackberry says it is "connected" when I view the connection but the WiFi symbol on the home screen is greyed out.
If I view "manage connections" the symbol next to WiFi is a yellow circle. The SSID name of my router is displayed next to the my carrier name on the front screen, but when I try to use the browser if does not use my WiFi connection it still tries to use the mobile phone link.
I have a Blackbery pearl, 8120.
Any Ideas, thanks
