There was a firmware update for my D-Link DIR-625 just before Christmas.
I updated to 3.07 and THIS ISSUE IS SOLVED FOR ME.
I was turned off the 'radio' and only had WiFi on. I was able to watch a 5 minute video on m.youtube.com and listened to 3 or 4 minutes of m.moodio.fm music as well.
for me, it was a ROUTER FIRMWARE issue.

Rogers IS NOT blocking streaming over WiFi. They want to get you onto WiFi and not use their bandwidth.
Blackberry's data compression doesn't always play nice with streaming, but its not Rogers.
As I found out, my router's firmware was the issue. I was able to surf just fine on WiFi at home, but it would not stream until I updated the firmware.
Trust me, I'd gone through darn near every possible setting I could in my Dlink router. I was prepared to flash it backwards to get it to work.
I knew it was my router as I could stream just fine in hotel rooms and restaurants that had free/open WiFi.

i can see that this fixed your problem but i had the same problem and that didnt work and i found how to fix mine so i just wanted to post it so everyone else can benefit of it.
my blackberry was streaming video fine on 3g network but when i connected to wifi it depended where i was, regular browsing always worked on wifi but streaming was hit and miss but mostly miss and when i went on the events on my router and i tried streaming youtube i got this event that came up for every packet sent so it was there id say at least 100 times but that is just estimated because i didn't count it :
RTSP ALG rejected packet from 126.96.36.199:5004
and i found this info to fix the problem and it worked perfect for me:
Disabling the RTSP ALG successfully avoids this issue.
To do this:
1. Log into your configuration web pages
2. Click on Advanced - Firewall Settings (DIR-655) or Advanced - Firewall (DGL-4500)
3. UN-check the checkbox for RTSP
4. Click on Save Settings
5. If not prompted to reboot the router, then click on Tools - System and choose the "Reboot the Device" button.
Note: This change may adversely affect sites or streams that depend on RTSP. On such sites or streams, you may be able to use HTTP instead.
i know a lot of people are having problems with wifi streaming and there is not very much help on the issue from RIM (company that owns BlackBerry) so i thought i'll give what i know on the issue
