Wi-Fi Connection Problem with Netgear UK
 
I have just had a new Bold 9700 and am having WI-Fi problems using a Netgear N150 (DGN 1000) wireless router. I am with Vodaphone in the UK.
My phone connects to the wireless network but the Wi-Fi indicator remains grey and there is no green tick against it just a dash meaning I cannot use BB services over the network.
Do I have to alter the router settings?

I tried the process in a friends office who has a BT hub and the Wi-Fi indicator went straight to white so I think it has to be an issue with my router.

Any help would be much appriciated !!

I'm having the same problem, If you search WPA2 in these forums this is why. It only takes WEP on the BB. I use a BT Home Hub which works fine with my Ipod touch when I'm on Wifi but it's something that BB will not take, Apparently I have to change my router to WEP It's a nightmare, if anyone knows a simple way to fix this let me know, I have searched forum after forum and theres no solution! The fact that I paid full wack for this phone (I'm not on contract) and I can't use Wifi is outrageous, surely BB can bring out a update to accept WAP2?
