My wifi is not working either, my 8520 is brand new.. I took it into Carphone warehouse where they said I have to wait until I have blackberry services but when I got bb services it still didn't work so I took it back in there and they said that the only way I could get it to work is by sending it off for repair. I dont want to be without my bb for a week so is there any other way I could make it work?

My BB shows router name. I have selected "hotspot browser". When I connect to internet, I get a message "unable to connect to the internet, please try again later. If the problem persists please contact service provider".

I have an 8900 3 members of my family have 8520 we have a Netgear DGN 1000 broadcasting on G I have followed all the workarounds suggested by Netgear have tiied the Pin method, the push button method, internet browser, Browser hotspot. We are with Vodafone, Virgin and O2 we all have Bis plans running and in all cases we connect with the wireless router but no green tick just an annoying " - " I am becoming very disgruntled with Blackberry especially now that Vodafone has decided that it will censor any words it considers to be "Adult" so you cant even search "Breast implants" without Vodafone telling you to stop being a pervert!
Any suggestions? I am considering a change of fruit!
