Having problems connecting newly purchased Curve 8250 to home WiFi Dray Tek Vigor 2710-any advice gratefully received!!
BB can 'see' home network but will not connect. Its as if BB and Router can 'see' each other but can't/won't 'talk' to each other. Tried changing BB Browser to Hotspot and away from network (Vodafone) and tried all three connection options (PIN, Pushbutton and manual via preshared key) but all time out with no connection.
Had a look at other postings but no-one seems to have had this particular problem.
Solved! Go to Solution.

If your currently running 802.11*N* on your router, this could cause issues. The BB model you are using only supports 802.11*G* and 802.11*B*.
One thing I would do to test to eliminate this issue is to check your wireless LAN settings on your router by logging into the cpanel. If it states you are currently using the N band then try switching it to one of the above compatible bands and seeing if your phone makes a UMA connection. If this doesn't resolve the problem, by all means, do let me know and we can explore other avenues.
