My BB has no Data Plan Services I can only use Wi-Fi to use the browser and What's app which is what I use.
The problem is that the Wi-Fi connection is intermittent, but that's the only symptom, when it seems to be no connection the SSID still on the main Screen and everywhere like showing im connected to de Router, when going under Manage Connection it shows in fact that i'm still conected to the router but when trying to ping myself or gateway there's no response.
The Wi-Fi icon that's shown under main screen, menu and other places it shown Greyed and under Manage settings a white dash [ - ] is shown beside the Wi-Fi <SSID> text I know this means that I'm actually not connected to a wi-fi network.
This should be enough to answer myself BUT... the most of the time I've internet connection and i know it bucause I'm able to use What's App and browser, and the wi-fi icon still greyed and with the white dash.
Am I doing something wrong? why the connection intermittence?
By the way... in My router settings I do have allowed my BB by MAC Address, and it has WEP security.

Hi and welcome to the forums!
You may be missing a specific service book. Out of the box, if supported by the wireless service provider as noted above, the following services will be available for Wi-Fi enabled BlackBerry smartphones. These phones will not have a wireless service provider data plan activated with them, leaving the following Wi-Fi services available after they are sold:
Note: The above assumes that the BlackBerry user has a qualifying plan with the wireless service provider, and has registered with the wireless network to obtain the necessary service books for the associated services to be used.
In BlackBerry® 6 and 7 software a connection to the BlackBerry® network over Wi-Fi can easily be identified with the BlackBerry® dots showing along side the Wi-Fi symbol.
