I have downloaded every version of the simulator, up to the lastest 4.7 that has the Storm, but for some reason networking doesn't seem to work on my simulator. I checked the network coverage, it all said that coverage is enabled but I am not able to use the browser to go anywhere. Could you please point out what I have done wrong?
Solved! Go to Solution.

In the JDE,
Edit / Preferences /
Select the "Simulator" tab
Select the "General" tab
Check the box "Launch Mobile Data Connection Services (MDS) with simulator"

I don't have Edit/Preference in my Eclipse,
I can goto Run > Debug Configuration > BlackBerry Simulator > DebugServer > Simulator, then there is a General tab there but everything is grey out so I cannot make any change to it.
I wish to have wifi simulation running so that I could start doing some development and testing but this is a big road block for me. If you can help me to get over this I would appreciate it very much.
BTW, I just found out today that the Storm doesn't have WIFI. I wonder what was the reason not to have such a feature on supposely the coolest phone from blackberry??? Now the Storm will just be like any slow device out there when come to accessing the internet...

Then I guess you need to manually start MDS.
Look under your Program Files / Research in Motion and see if you can find the MDS directory.
Or, wait for someone who is using Eclipse to answer.

MDS 4.1.4 is an older version. Try version 188.8.131.52 that is shipped with the 4.7. I'm pretty sure this is in the component pack for 4.7, or in the latest Eclipse plug-in distro.
