Default wifi setup problem, please help!!

Please Login to Remove!

hi there, im tryin to setup my 8900 to my wifi in the house. Its finding it ok but when i try and pair it up it just comes back with "failed to authenicate against the network". The problem i think is because my security on the modem is WPA but the blackberry doesnt give that option, which means i can only use the wifi on my blackberry if i turn the security off on the modem!
can anyone help me resolve this?

Or change the security type on your wireless router to accomodate. WPA isn't the only option.
