(I can't post a web link.)
Like many I got the
"Login Failed due to network problems please check your settings"
Searching this forum only led me to two threads that were closed (?) without any resolution of the problem. I also found many confusing suggestions at other forums on the web (I'm embarrassed to say I tried most of them).

The password on my device was (apparently) incorrect. I updated it and the problem with Google sync went away.
I hope this saves others a few minutes of their time - especially as Google sync seems to be one of the few ways to migrate your contacts out of BB.
