CAN ANYONE HELP WITH CONNECTING ON WI FI. IT HAS BEEN DONE IN A SHOP BUT WHEN I TRY TO ON MY HOME NETWORK I CAN'T. I SCAN FOR NETWORKS AND TRY TO LOG ONTO MY NETWORK I GET THIS COME UP. THIS WIRELESS ROUTER SUPPORTS WIFI PROTECTED SETUP. TO CONNECT USING A PIN (WHICH YOUR BLACKBERRY WILL GENERATE). CLICK NEXT. THEN I GET PROVISIONING WIFI PROFILES ENTER THIS PIN INTO YOUR WIRELES ROUTER 78749542 AND GIVES YOU 5 MINUTES TO CONNECT EACH TIME I DO THIS IT GIVES A DIFFERENT 8 DIGIT NUMBER. NO ONE I HAVE ASKED CAN UNDERSTAND WHY IT ASKS TO PUT THIS NUMBER INTO THE WIRELESS ROUTER OR HOW TO.
CAN ANYONE EXPLAIN WHAT THIS MEANS OR HOW TO CONNECT I HAVE TRIED THE PUSH BUTTON METHOD ASWELL BUT IT WON'T CONNECT TO THE INTERNET.
BY THE WAY I HAVE A BLACKBERRY CURVE 8520

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!
Rather than clicking "Next" at that point, click "Cancel" (I think it says that). It is totally counter-intuitive, but clicking Cancel lets it continue to connect to your WAP, bypassing that PIN configuration.
Hope that helps!

Hi sdgardne, I know this is an old post but I just joined to say thank you and give you a 'like check', as it seems the OP forgot to do that...
My daughter has been moaning about this problem for weeks, and I confess I didn't take much notice as I bought her a blackberry add-on! But now she was unable to buy the add-on and wanted the wi-fi sorted. I always ask her to do a search on her problem, but funny how she never finds a solution and I usually do within a few minutes...
Anyway, your incredibly simple solution saved the day! So many thanks for that!!
