Re: Blackberry Curve-8520 Wifi not working.

The only other thing I can think of is maybe your router is brodcasting on 802.11-N. Check this, if so then change it to 802.11-B/G.  Blackberry phones do not work on the N band.

Re: Blackberry Curve-8520 Wifi not working.

Im having the same problem, been on another topic here and got no help from there :smileysad: Surely the router cant just change whats its broadcasting on, on its own. My wifi has been working since i set it up with no problems at all but now it seems everyone i know with a curve is having a problem with the wifi. Cant be a coincidence that everyone is having the same problem at the excat same time can it?!

Blackberry were unable to make a long term wifi enabled phone, you'll only get it for about a few months then boom it's gone

Re: Blackberry Curve-8520 Wifi not working.

I have only recently noticed that my Blackberry won't connect to Wifi on two separate networks.

Mine is a Belkin N, broadcasting in B/G/N Modes, and has been working previously with no issues.
The second network I have used is a Sky Netgear G router, which I have also used with no issues in the past.

I have switched the radio off to ensure connection only via wifi, which fails to connect.

I have restarted my router, changed to G mode only, changed the channels from 6, to 10, 13 and 1 to no avail, broadcasted my SSID, removed Mac Address Filtering and have even gone to an open network to try and get my blackberry connected.

Lest to say, I feel there is now an issue, and unfortunately my BB is over the 12m warranty for manufacturer repair, and I am not on a contract.

Any suggestions would be more than greatly received!

Re: Blackberry Curve-8520 Wifi not working.

Many people have been experiencing a similar issue which appears to be a BB server issue not a home router problem.

 

I know mine is fixed as I have just had over 200 emails from the forum in this last hour!

 

I would leave the router well-alone for the time being.

Re: Blackberry Curve-8520 Wifi not working.

Thanks Stevels,

I actually don't mind messing about with the router, as I know what I'm doing, but it was more to show that I had been proactive opposed to hitting forums immediately as well.

Mine's still down at the minute, but I'm surprised that a server issue would affect a home router connection :s
