No Wifi. What am I doing wrong??

I just got a bold 9000 from att and I can not set up my wifi.  I do not have a data plan.  Under manage connections I have mobile network and wifi both with checkmarks in the box and the mobile network has a green check out to the right.  The wifi has a white dash to the right of it.  Mobile network>Data services> OFF. 


In my browser I have browser config >browser>hotspot browser.  General properties>default browser> hotspot browser.


I hope someone can help!  Thank you!

Re: No Wifi. What am I doing wrong??

So you now need to scroll down on that screen to the WiFi setup and search for a WiFi signal and follow the prompts there.


Do you have a home or office WiFi to setup? If the system is not open, I have found the best method is using a shared key for the encryption.

You will need to turn on data services as well.

Yes turn the data services on. If it's off then you'll receive a message indicating to turn it on before setting up the wi-fi
