    Issue with WifI 9700

    I have a bold 9700, it is an unlocked tmobile phone. I live in the Caribbean so i am currently using it with the network down here an it works OK with the network. I recently tried to connect to my home's wi-fi, the phone would pick up the connection an it will work for some short periods, or sometimes it wouldn't even work at all, then the internet connection on my modem gets a red light...i have a siemens gigaset 204 A, and to this i have my linksys wirless modem modem connected. It is not an issue with the ISP beacuse I tested it...i wud turn off the wifi on my phone for about an 30 mins an the internet works well, but when i turn on the wifi on my phone the modem gets a red light an stops working an will not work again until i turn off the wifi on my phone an reset the modem. It wasn't working on OS 5.0.0.586 an i updated my OS today to 5.0.0.714 an it still is doing the same thing

    The red light should be on your router and not on your modem right?

    Maybe you have to re-configure your wireless router, or maybe reset it.

    Yea i did that. My brother has a gemini an the wifi works well with his phone given i don't turn on mine. This is very puzzling because this morning I did a battery pull an it worked for like 5 mins then did the same thing again

    on the router?

    It should not be on the modem at all. That's a huge problem for me...

    Have you tried just unpowering the modem and router and retrying it?
    Are you sure the MAC address on your BB is not blacklisted?
