Default WiFi Issue

Please Login to Remove!

I have a BB Bold 9700
I have a WiFi hotspot at my house, that I could connect to fine at home in Egypt.
I came to visit my parents in Kuwait, and I'm now using a SIM card from another carrier.
I try to connect to the WiFi service we have at the house, and I can connect, but I don't receive anything on my browser. My social updates give me a message that I should contact my carrier to buy a data plan...
Can carriers do that? Stop you from accessing your WiFi

Second of all, my WiFi at the moment has DNS server configuration. I added that in, thinking it would solve it, but it still didn't. My WiFi option has Detect IP Automatically, but 2 DNS servers. On BB though, you can't separate the two, you must enter values for DNS as well as IP is you uncheck the box.

How can I get Internet through WiFi into my BB, without having to purchase a DataPlan.

Thank you

Put your old SIM back in... the one with the data plan.
Just turn off Mobile Network so you don't get billed by your provider.

hey thanks, but

Second of all, my WiFi at the moment has DNS server configuration. I added that in, thinking it would solve it, but it still didn't. My WiFi option has Detect IP Automatically, but 2 DNS servers. On BB though, you can't separate the two, you must enter values for DNS as well as IP is you uncheck the box.

Is there a solution to this?
