Default struggling with wifi on the bold

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, I seem to be struggling to get wifi working on my Bold. I've tried numerous routes and ways (mainy through reading posts), but ultimately I just end up with 'no networks found' when i'm searching the area despite the fact I know there are at least 5 setups where I am. On a couple of occasions it has shown me those set-ups but they on further tries the error comes back. I'm on the Vodafone network..

Welcome!

What OS do you have installed on your phone?

It may not solve your issue, but I would recommend upgrading to 4.6.0.147. Then I would try to troubleshoot this specific issue.

When I change browser from Hotspot Browser to Internet Browser it comes back on. What should it be on?

If you are using standard wifi connections, and not connections that require a login, you should use the Internet Browser. Hotspot Browser is for commercial wifi setups, like Starbucks, McDonalds, etc.
