Default ? about 1st bb, don't bite

Please Login to Remove!

hello, i live in toronto and i have a bb flip 8220(still locked to rogers wireless) with a prepaid SIM card(also rogers).

i am trying to use the wi-fi with my home connection. it seems to locate the connection and connect, but when i try to open the browser it say it cannot connect? does it matter what router i have? i have an N router(i think) and it connects with my psp just fine. i tried tech support and they blew me off saying it is something wrong with my home network(meaning my router).

but he said it should be possible to connect even though i do not have a data plan. can somebody PLEASE help me with this? they also said the opera browser would not work because it is a third party company.

So once again please help, not flame, me. i actually tried the search feature but i got confused with the tech terms and acronyms.

thank you in advance.

Through WiFi you can connect to the Internet without a data plan through a wireless access point (a router at home, in a coffee shop, etc.) when it is in range.
