Default Cannot connect 8530 to Zoom ADSL X6 Modem/Router

Please Login to Remove!

Hello and thanks for looking,

I have been able to connect my wifi on my 8530 to every other router and hot spot that I've come across except for my Zoom ADSL X6 Modem/Router at my house. I have tried reseting both my BB and Router devices with no luck and have now dropped all wifi secuirity. I've also switched my wifi channel from 10 to 1 although there are no other wifi's in scanning range. When I try to connect on my BB device I scan and can see the router on the scan. When connecting to the open network it reply's with "failed to associate with the network". After a router reset I am sometimes able to to briefly connect to the network and acheive the wifi function I need (mobimouse) but then get kicked quickly.

Any suggestions what I can try?

I spoke to someone at Zoom - apparently the model number that I have does not work with Blackberry, although the newer one does. Very frustrating, b/c it works fine with the iPhone. The guy at Zoom said they did extensive testing and could never get it to work. Lame answer, in my opinion, but at least you know you're not doing anything wrong. Since a new router costs anywhere from $80 - $100, you may just want to wait till your old one dies and deal w/no wifi on your BB.
