Default wifi doesn't connect !!

Please Login to Remove!

i'm having a problem with my BB 8820,

my wifi finds wireless networks, but seems to be unable to connect to any network. in dutch it says: "beveiligingsgegevens komen niet overeen" translation would be something like : security information doesn't match.

i went to the store and they said the problem is my software, and without warranty it will cost me something.

is there anyone who has seen this error?
and is there an easier way to change the software on my BB, can i do it myself?

Sounds as though you are not entering the correct password to use the wi-fi.
