On your BlackBerry, go to Options > Advanced > Browser and set it to the HotSpot browser.
Try your browser to a website, for instance, mobile.blackberry.com
Does it work?
Also, you said "my data plan has no restriction; is that THE BlackBerry Data Plan, or what kind of plan?

thanks, but changing browser configuartion to "Hotspot" LIMITS the usage of browser to wifi ONLY. even then, the 8900 can easily detect and connect to a "unsecured" wifi, but since mine is WPA-Personal TKIP encryption on Linksys WRT54G2, whereas 8900 gives the following encryptions for wifi:
I would need to check if any of the above is compatible to WPA-Personal TKIP !!!!!!

i am still unable to connect my 8900 to my wifi router. i have done the following to establish a working connection but havent suceeded yet:
1. changed WPA-Personal TKIP key to WEP key which is supported by 8900.
2. changed WEP key to NO SECURITY on router's end.
3. repeatedly deleted WIFI Profiles and get them detected after scanning.
4. changed the option of browser to HOTSPOT BROWSER in the advanced option.
5. battery pull on all the above steps.
and its confusing that 8900 can detect and connect to my offfice router which is without any encrption, but cannot connect to home router! despite all the above. thogh the home screenshows the SSID of the router but the icon remains grey (inactive) and there is a grey dash (-) instead of green tick in connection manager!!!!
following is the configuration at present after wifi diagnostics:
Current Profile: *****
AP MAC Address: 00:0F:66:2C:**:**

Local IP Address: 192.168.1.2
Signal Level: -57 dBm

my router is a linksys WRT54G & my laptops, iPOD Touch and Nokia N & E series phone work fine with them!!!!!!

Thankz in advance
