    Need a lil help with Wifi

    OK.. I have tried to not have to ask this here but I am having trouble. The wifi works fine, but at home I have a belkin g router.. I was running it WPA2 protected, WEP, and No security. WPA2 tells me that the passkey is wrong even though its the same one for my pc's and it works. WEP tells me could not find an IP address. I have tried rebooting my router and cable modem. I have tried re-configuring the router. Now if I turn off the security connects fine....

    And what is WPS? wifi protection security I think. But when i hit connect from the BB it asks me if I want to use it to connect because my router supports. So I tried it and put the key in that it gave me(but no idea if I put it in the right spot) but no go. SO please someone help me

    Did you try WPA-Personal? I'm using a old LynkSys and I believe I had the same issue or a similar issue. Give that a shot and see how that goes.

    Actually, I am not the guy to ask in this case. I've absolutely no experience with WPA security, personally. As for the wifi issues in general, i'm willing to bet the S2s wifi code is still a bit buggy. Writing proper device drivers is one thing, making the security work right is another story.

    Truly strange. It works in Wifi both at home and in my office. I have a solid white WiFi. Don't leave your network unprotected. We'll figure it out.

    Maybe the router is the issue? What are your settings on the router's security? How about the broadcast type? Or is it set to just G or N, or is it being very compatible?
