Default Pearl wont let me WiFi browse

Please Login to Remove!

Ok, can someone tell me why I appear to have my Wifi connected to my home wireless LAN, however the icon next to WiFi is amber (not red or green).
When I try to browse, the phone will only ever try and use my phone network provider (GPRS) and not Wifi.

Yes, the 8120 is wifi capable.

Are you using the wifi browser? Go to Browser >hit menu and select "Go To." Then hit menu again and select "change browser" and then go back and type in your web address. When you save bookmarks you can specify which browser you want to use.
