Q10/Z10 Wireless Connection Error: Unable to set up a wireless connection between this device and BlackBerry Link

Hi all,

 

I'm having a problem with BB Link on my work computer. I am trying to enable wireless connections to my computer via Link settings for the device, but receive the error "Unable to set up a wireless connection between this device and BlackBerry Link" when I check off the box.

 

I am signed into BlackBerry ID and have followed the same steps I did on my home computer (which works great). My device is connected to wifi, my computer is on a basic work network with a single static IP address, I've tried using the DMZ feature of my router with my computer's IP, and still no luck.

 

Is there a limit to the number of computers I can access remotely from my Q10? If so (I imagine the limit is one), will this be changed in the future?

 

Thanks.

Hello supraking,

 

Are your computers connected to the same Wi-Fi network? The issue you are having may be related to this article:

BlackBerry Link Wi-Fi Sync does not work when trying to connect with multiple desktops at the same time

I look forward to hearing back from you.

Thanks.

Hi, it would appear that the problem was resolved after updating BlackBerry Link. I thought I had the latest version because the software did not find any new updates (even though it was set to auto-update). The latest version (1.1.1.32) worked like a charm. Thanks!
