Default Setting up Wifi

Please Login to Remove!

Hello! I am currently trying to set up the wireless in my house for my phone. I have a linksys router and it is WPA2. For some reason, i am not sure how to set up my phone. I have the three options, scan for networks, manually add network, or push button setup. When i do scan, it gives me a pin but i'm not sure where to add it. When i do manually add, i add the name but then for security settings, i don't have my WPA2 on there. For the push button, it just searches.

Any suggestions or help would be much appreciated!! Thanks in advance

Scan for networks. When you see your network choose connect. In the password/passphrase section put your WPA2 password in and select connect. You should then get a screen that says connecting to or something like that. Once connected it will say Success! and you can close out of the adding networks screen. Don't be surprised if it doesn't connect and show you a bright WiFi icon on the home screen right away. On my Bold it seems to take a little while before it finally connects solidly. And the WiFi on the Bold seems to be flaky compared to my old 8820.

best way is to do a scan for network but if that doesnt work, manually is always an option

I set mine up manually because I have our router set to not broadcast the SSID. Worked perfectly.
