Default No longer able to connect to home wireless network...

Please Login to Remove!

I have an 8900 and have my home network set up. I had been able to connect with no problems wirelessly until a few days ago. I did some of my own trouble shooting with no luck. I then check out my settings and it appears that my BB has the wrong MAC address of my router somehow.

I have no idea how this could have occurred becaue the other devices I have connecting wirelessly have no problem connecting. The PSK is correct but I think because I have the wrong MAC its telling me that its incorrect.

Anyone have this problem before? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Just go to manage connections and have the phone find your router again, assuming there's no password key. 99% of WiFi problems are due to the router.

My Wi-Fi connection quits every few days and the ONLY thing that gets it going again is a battery pull and replace. BB 9000 Bold on Rogers.
