Browsing using Wi-Fi only on Torch 9800

Just taken delivery of a Torch 9800 , and am trying to browse i'net using Wif-Fi only (NOTE :  I'm currently trying to browse internet without SIM.....just using Wi-Fi Hotspot at  home)


I was able to do this, then applied a number of updfates to the handset.  Since which time I am unable to browse the internet.


Have removed service books, restarted the device (battery pull)

Have removed the hotspot profile , restarted device (battery pull) 


Totall out of ideas.   This device is running OS 6, but I recal lin OS 5 there was the option to force the browser to use hotspots .


Any ideas on how to address this issue, as its causing a few issue with the testing that I'm meant to be doing
