Default Basic Question, Could someone explain to me how to connect to a wifi network

Please Login to Remove!

Im struggling to connect to an open router on my bb 8900. Where my caravan is, there is internet access all over the camp. Normally on my laptop i find the router, then enter my code and im online. On my bb, i can search for a network, it finds it no problem but the wifi symbol is still dull, and ideally i would like to use uma as the camp is in a valley and the signal is rubbish. Is there any chance of someone explaining to me how to go on??

Tried all the options manage connections etc, on my home screen it comes up with the ssid but cant get on.....
