Default WiFi problems with Bold 9700

Please Login to Remove!

I love my Bold. I just have one problem. I can no longer get it to "associate" with my home WiFi. When I first had it it asked me for me WEP code (hex 10 characters) and it worked fine for about 2 weeks. Now it just "fails to associate". All my other devices work, inclouding the Samsung netbook i am using now, Canon MP 620 printer and my ipod touch. So why not my 9700. If it had never worked I might think it was me, but it was ok.

Any ideas please since I mostly only get GPRS at home and it is so slow. Yes I know I could just use my ipod touch but my 9700 is always with me and the ipod isn't

Help please

Try power cycling your router. Unplug the power cord for 30 seconds and then plug back in. If that doesn't work, delete the wifi profile on your BB and try scanning for the wifi again and reentering the code.

That's fantastic, but unrelated and unhelpful to this thread.
