| | Wi-Fi on 8820 / Belkin Router
Please Login to Remove!
BB 8820 (v18.104.22.168)
Belkin Wireless G + MIMO Router (firmware 5.01.16) (hardware F5D9230-4 v5000)
I cannot maintain a wi-fi connection for much longer than 20 minutes. It is up. It is down. Sometimes restarting the BB will get it back, sometimes not. Wirelessly, I have a laptop and an Xbox that maintains a connection perfectly.
I have had wi-fi off for days until I decided to make this post, and of course now it is connected, so I cannot quote errors verbatim. But, I just turned wi-fi off and back on and now I get the error ... DHCP server is unreachable. But, then a few minutes later, it connected on its own. *sigh*
Can someone shed some light for me. Is this a common BlackBerry problem, or do I need to tweak settings on the router, the device, or what?
I write this as I sit on the line of driving five hours to Chicago to try out a Nokia E71 instead of waiting on the Bold. I love me some BlackBerry, but I am nervous about some issues.
Any help is appreciated. Anyone that thinks they can troubleshoot with me, I will be glad to respond to questions about my current settings.
