Exclamation Blackberry 8520 won't connected to my wifi router. HELP

Please Login to Remove!

I tried to find out how to connect my stupid blackberry to wifi router by using WPA2-Personal, it does not have any WPA2 option only WEP, PSK (which I tried), PEAP, LEAP, EAP-FAST, EAP-TTLS, EAP-SIM and EAP-AKA.
Various forum suggest connecting via the PSK (Pre-Shared Key) option but it doesn't work for me.
The blackberry states that it has a active connection with my router, but still won't let me browse the Internet with it. The funny thing is I have another 8520 and it connect to my Internet just fine. (Can't use it due to its faulty trackpad)
Any idea as to what to do next?

Older model BlackBerrys don't have all the encryption protocols. The only solution is to change the security protocol on the router to something your BlackBerry supports. It's a far from optimal solution but it's the only solution.
