| | Re: Z10 and wifi issues
Had the same issue on the legacy OS for years, before I figured it out...and the Z10 does the same thing as well.
Here's what I discovered - on certain wireless devices, ie; WAPS, Routers etc...the BlackBerry has an issue when the WiFi password uses a lot of characters...
I had two networks stored for my home; my primary SSID and my guest network. My primary SSID was setup for a 50-character password while my guest network used 9. Never had an issue with the guest network, but the primary would connect, and then die after a few minutes. It drove me crazy, until I figured it out. Both networks used the same hardware, but were on two different subnets. It took me a very long time to figure the problem out, but that was what it was.
I don't know if you're having this same issue, but I'd start there. Try removing your wireless security to start (from the wireless network) and see if that works. Assuming it does with no issue, next step would be to change the WiFi password to something around 4-6 characters and increase from there until you experience the problem.
Your issue sure sounds like mine was...
At least 17+ different BB's since 1999 -- too many to list...
