| | Bold 9700 won't reconnect to WiFi
Please Login to Remove!
Hi everybody. I recently got the Bold 9700 and I have it setup for wifi but I am having an issue for which I couldn't find a solution in other threads. I have a non-hidden SSID with WPA2-Personal wireless encryption. When I create the wifi profile on my phone it connects to wifi no problem and the WiFi logo turns white so I know it's connected to the blackberry infrastructure.
The problem is that if I switch off the WiFi radio or the wifi drops for any reason, it will not reconnect no matter what I do unless I delete the wifi profile on my phone and re-create it. Since I am not using DHCP it is very annoying having to enter the ip address, subnet mask, dns addresses and gateway address every time.
I could just leave wifi on all the time but the problem is that it will drop overnight and in the morning I'll have the same problem again. Can anyone please recommend a possible fix for this? It baffles me.
