Default 8820 question

Please Login to Remove!

Whats up folks, so I am currently using an 8820 and I connect via WiFi at home. Works out wonderful for getting data while im using voice for work... my question is.. Does anyone know how to connect the 8820 to a WPA2 secure network? in the options for security you have WEP,Pre-Shared Key (PSK), PEAP, LEAP and some EAP security options. Any input on this matter would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks

Works fine in our Medical center using PEAP - I believe that the setings are network specific though.

I've successfully connected to my Asus router running WPA-2 using the Pre Shared Key (PSK) setting on the BB.

thanks for your replies, i have just recently learned that PSK is a form of connecting to a WPA2 network. Now my new issue is that i frequently lose connection momentarily.. its really strange, any ideas anyone?
