Wifi Connection Curve 8900

[ Edited ]


I am new with bb and need help setting wifi on my unlocked T-mobile BB-8900 (v4.6.1.231).

Things to consider:
I do NOT have any data plan with my carrier (Fido), but would like to browse net on my bb using wifi
Under Options/Advanced Options/Browser, its set to "Hotspot Browser"
I ran wifi-setup-wizard, it saw my router (linksys WRT354N, network name "duke"), and i entered the correct key/password. Also, its set to automatically obtain IP & DNS
On the home screen, in the top-middle it says "Fido-duke"
Under Manage connections, the wifi says "duke", but there NO green mark, just a white-dash
I tried to ping to my router, but it was unsuccessful
Under Options/Advanced options/TCP/IP, there is a check-mark beside APN Settings Enabled, APN: epc.tmobile.com

I checked: forumsDOTcrackberryDOTcom/f65/complete-wifi-how-47229

how do I make my router switch from N mode to G mode?

need help
