Default problems connecting to my wifi

Please Login to Remove!

ok so my problem is, iv been trying for about an hour to get my blackberry curve to connect to my homes wifi, ( which im currently using on my laptop) i finally managed to get it to connect using the method : search for wireless network, click the wifi u wish to connect to , instead of clicking next press back and put in the password thingy. BUT the problem im having now is when it tries to connect to this wifi its says : network lost. starting to wish i hadnt bought the bb now :( please can someone help me!

Do you have a genuine BlackBerry data plan? If it doesn't specifically say "BlackBerry" then you need to call curve and have them add a BB data plan. Then you will get the service books to use WiFi.

i have no idea what a data plan is. im completely clueless about these phones, i can do everything else, access my internet through my payg, use my bbm my bluetooth, everything , just not wifi, as i said clueless lol

unfortunatly this is happening to both mine and my bf's BB's. my bfs could originally connect to wifi, when i was with sky, but no i am with bt and neither of ours will connect, i think its got something to do with the homehub???

Please do not use text speak on the forum.

If your both having trouble and it does seem you have a Blackberry Data plan, then I would check the options on the home hub. Are you sure you set the BB's SSID correct including the security type and code? these are usually the problem.
