no wi-fi without blackberry icon showing

My Bold9900 (same with my new Torch) detects wi-fi networks no problem (shows strong wi-fi connection and gives name of wi-fi on top of home screen.  BUT will not actually connect unless the Blackberry Icon (pips) ('Data Services on' I believe) also appears near the wi-fi icon.  It's something to do with the fact I'm not at any point entering the Wi-Fi name/password (or accepting the certificate if an open network).  The reason I'm not is that I don't automatically get a pop up screen asking for this info (like in old BBs and eg iphones) when I try to open a webpage (just get the error - you're not connected to anything to allow you to browse).  And, I can't see how I manually enter this wifi name/password info (eg going to SSID screen doesn't work).

Any ideas?  Hopefully it's simple.  Thanks in advance
