I'm experiencing quite a similar problem with my 8120.
First of all: I have NO data plan. But I should still be able to just browse via WiFi in my home or university network, shouldn't I?
My WiFi symbol is always grey and I haven't ever noticed it turning black. The Name of the SSID does show though. When I am on the WiFi-Browser the icon is grey aswell and when I try to open a website it just says "Requesting.." and after some time it pops up the error message "Unable to connect to the Internet, please try again later.".
Here I gotta admit that it might be a problem with my home network. My Pearl says that it received an IP address, but it's not pingable and on my router setup page there is no device listed with that IP.
In my university network, the 8120 is pingable though, but I still cannot browse the Internet.
On my home network I tried using WiFi with and without encryption without any noticeable difference.
The university network has no encryption, but mac filtering enabled. My mac address is registered and as the BlackBerry is pingable, it should be at least properly connected to the network. The problem on my university network might be the proxy server.
Long story short, it might just be a problem with the WiFi networks I am trying to use. But I don't know what could be wrong with my home network.
Could anyone give my advise on or maybe even a solution for my problem?
