Blackberry curves and WiFi

Everytime I try to connect my blackberry curve 8520 to WiFi it asks me to type in a certain code to my WiFi router. Which makes it impossible for me to connect since WiFi routers do not have buttons (not the one i've seen anyway).

How can I connect my blackberry to WiFi then ?

 

Please HELP.

Thank you.

Re: Blackberry curves and WiFi

When you set up your Wi-Fi router, you assign it an SSID (aka a name that other devices use to identify your router) ans most often a password.  When your phone is trying to connect to your router, it's looking for that password.

If you don't remember entering a password for your router, you need to set up your Wi-Fi router from scratch and assign a password to it.  This can be done by unplugging your router for a few seconds then plugging it in again and setting it up.

 

 

I hope I've helped you.  Smiley Happy

Re: Blackberry curves and WiFi

I live in a community so I can't exactly turn off and on the WiFi router as I please.
Also my Blackberry does find my WiFi in the list of available WiFi Networks but when I click to connect it my phone says "enter this PIN into your wireless router" .
And when I try to "Manually Add Network" it says "Failed to connect to the Network" and I know that i am typing the right password and all .
I just don't understand . :/
