If your wifi router is password protected, you should enter it's password into your handheld when trying to connect. What PIN are you talking about ? and why are you entering it into the router's config page ?

Raz, some routers now use "wi-fi protected setup" this enables the device connecting to give a PIN to enter into the router settings for "easier connection".

Do you use MAC address filtering [or MAC address control]?

If you bypass your pin setup, and just type in the WEP/WPA password, what happens?

Here's a longshot, but you might want to try it.

For weeks, I couldn't connect with Starbucks WiFi. I would get a hard crash.

Finally I turned off my Bluetooth. That solved the problem.

As I say, it's a longshot, but give it a try.
