I'm trying to connect to my home network which has MAC and also WPA protection. The Bold seems to only accept a WEP number, not WPA. Is there a way around this?
Thanks in advance, I'm a new user.

Did not know if you solved the problem or not. I found the following at blackberry.com.
Pre-Shared Key: Type the WPA™ Personal pass phrase for the Wi-Fi network. This worked for me.

My wireless has been WPA for about a Year and I only got my Bold about a month ago and I connected up to it fine. Try a sort reset first (take the battery out and replace it) or a hard reset (but back everything up first!!)

I'm also having the same issue... I just got the BB Bold and when i try to connect to a wifi connection by scanning for networks, it finds it fine but then rather than ask for my WPA-Personal password (which it recognizes btw when it shows the networks found), it instead gives me an 8 digit pin which it tells me to add to my Wireless Access Point. I have no idea how to do this.
Then i tried to manually add a network, add the network name, and then when it asks what kind of security i have, it doesn't show WPA... it shows WEP, PSK and a bunch others i've never heard of.
Anyone know how to fix this?

I got it, finally!
with a bold 9700 and no sim card, I've gotten Wifi to work. My problem was my key... it is a AT&T Uverse modem with a all numeric key...I was not hitting ALT so I was really putting letters in, not numbers.
I have mobile network off, no sim card and using Hotspot Browser. Hope this helps. Oh yeah, it using the PSK security.
