I'm am new to the BlackBerry platform. I have read all the developer documentation on how to install applications. I want to be able to install my apps wireless (over the air method) using my internal network. I use an apache webserver listening on port 80 with all the proper mime types. Created my web page with JAD, JAR and COD files. I get "Unable to connect to the Internet, please try again later. If the problem persists pleas contact your service provider."
BlackBerry Curve 8530 (Verizon)
OS version 18.104.22.1687
I'm not sure why but I can access my router.

Are you doing this with a simulator? If so, do you have the Mobile Data Service (MDS) simulator running? Are you trying to connect using a loopback connection device side? (BlackBerries do not have an IP. loopback will fail)
Hope that helps,

Dom and others,
I figured it out. It was quite simple. My windows firewall was turned on. So, now I can easily install my apps without going on the internet. Thanks though.
Instructions to use over the internet or internal LAN:
For Windows XP
Assuming you have a webserver listening on a computer inside network. with the proper mime types to understand JAD, JAR and COD files.
Step 1: make sure your software firewall opens port 80 or whatever your IP address of your WebServer computer is listening to.
Step 2:Hit the Window key + R key then type cmd.exe
Step 3: On the command line type IPConfig then Enter key on the webserver computer
You should see something like below:
Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection:
Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : xxx.xx.broadband.net.
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.3
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1
Step 3: ping or use a browser from another computer type http://192.168.1.3
Step 4: On BlackBerry select manage connections icon -> select wi-fi (escape)
Step 5: On BB selection options icon -> Advanced Options -> Browser -> select Hotspot Browser (escape / save)
Step 6: On BB select Browser icon -> type http://192.168.1.3 (enter)
Step 7: you should see your web page render in the BB!
If a webpage has links to JAD and the file is colocated with the page (index.html) it will prompt to install your Java BlackBerry Application.
