Default Problems with reconnecting to a saved Wi-Fi

Please Login to Remove!

I'm a tester and part of my job is testing connectivity issues
My problem is with BB 9700 both with os 5.0
The BB has a saved Wi-Fi network and when I try to connect to it in the first time everything is Ok
But, as a part of my tests I need to start working with Wi-Fi, clos it, moving to 3G and then return to the Wi-Fi
In my 2 devices I have the same problem that after closing the Wi-Fi and opening it ( manually through the device) it's not connecting
The BB finds the network but the connection is not established properly
Are you familiar with this problems?
Is this related to the os? or to the router?
What do I need to change?
The only that the device is establishing connection again is only after rebooting the device
I test also on iPhone that doesn't have this problems...

My home network connects automatically all the time, no issues. But with something like Starbucks, a login (even though it's free) is required each time. So the Starbucks free WiFi won't connect automatically even though it's a saved network.
