Default How do I turn the radio on for my 8820?

Please Login to Remove!

My wifi is claiming that it won't work because the radio is not turned on. I went into options - status and saw that the radio is off, but I don't know how to turn it on? Any help?

When I first powered up my T-Mo 8320 at the office and tried to connect, I got the same notification. It appeared to connect, but the WiFi symbol remained ghosted and it didn't connect.

I took the unit home that evening and it connected right up to the house wireless system after I searched for available networks there. Retuning to the office the following day it connected rght in automatically.

It must be some kind of reset or lockup problem. Mine resolved itself. Interestingly mine was the only unit of three at the office which didn't quickly or easily connect that first time.

Been working great since.

Select 'Manage Connections' icon. From the panel that comes up, you should be able to turn on/off the carrier (GPRS/EDGE, etc.), WiFi and Bluetooth radios by simply selecting each one individually and press Enter.
