Just curious, what router settings should one look for? I just want to have internet access lounging on the couch at home, or at wifi hotspots around town. No need for data plan as I have computers w/internet at home and work.

I'm having similar issues as the OP; but I can connect to my router, just cannot obtain an IP address (yellow circle with a dash, not green with a check).

Here's what I have:
unlocked T-Mobile branded Curve 8320
Fido, no data plan
USR8054 801.11g (at home, two laptops/two desktops connected via wifi)
- WPA-PSK enabled, mac filtering disabled
- BB sees my SSID, input passphrase & it connects to router
- no IP address

I also have an old Linksys 802.11b router at work (similar config - WPA-PSK, no mac filter); BB doesn't see the network at all, let alone connect to it. Are the routers just too old?
