Connecting Blackberry to wireless

Hi,

 

I am trying to connect my Blackberry storm 2 to my wireless Internet connection through my d link DIR-615 router. I scan for networks and it find it no problem. However a message comes up saying "this wi-fi router supports wi-fi protected setup. To connect using a pin click next." My phone then generates a pin number and asks me to  enter it onto my wi-fi router. I can't find anywhere to put this pin into. I have been on the admin page, but can't find where to enter it. Help please, as my phone will be going through the window in a moment!!! Thanks :smileymad:

Re: Connecting Blackberry to wireless

hiya alan 

 

strange it should be the other way around since on the bottom of the router, there is a PIN numberand that sould be getting entered into your phone. i find the WPS (PIN) system really annoying and i just disabled it. 

 

to do this log into the router, open internet explorer type in 192.168.0.1 username admin password is left empty, press login.. choose wireless setup --> manual wireless connection setup and untick the very first box enable press save settings. 

 

this means when your phone goes to connect it will just ask for your security key eg passphrase

I just did this by

 

set up wifi connection ( in manage connections on BB) 

manually adding network

 

typing the network name ( SSID) found on the side of the router e.g. virginmediaxxxxxxx

typing in the passphrase also found on side of router 

 

didnt expect it to work but it did! 

 

All this is using the  virgin media supplied router don't know what you do with a different one .

Hi Siripen

 

You may have changed the default login details, to reset it back you can press the reset button on the back of the router for 10 seconds.

Re: Connecting Blackberry to wireless

Hi,

 

I found that when I tried to connect to my virgin media wireless box, I selectged cancel when asked to set a pin and then I was allowed to connect without.

 

However, I am unable to use the wifi network even though I am connected to the box. For example if I tried to surf the web the phone defaults to using the mobile network. This is not what I want!

 

Looking under the menu 'Service status'

 

Wi-fi network

                     Active profile:virginmedia*********

 

BUT

 

Blackberry Internet Service

                   Connection: Not connected

Blackberry Enterprise Server

                    Connection: Not connected

 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi PerryGrin

 

Are you able to connect to the wireless hub/router using a PC?

Re: Connecting Blackberry to wireless

Hi mate...if you have the new netgear router...fairly cheap looking thin with no antenna then its easy.

 

Log in to the router

 

Type,  192.168.0.1 into your browser address bar ,,,press enter / return

 

you will be asked for a username and password

 

username......admin

 

password....changeme

 

press enter

 

On the top left of the menu screen you will see,, add WPS client.

 

click this and then next

 

selct PIN and then you will be given the box to enter the pin which your blackberry generates

 

thats it

Re: Connecting Blackberry to wireless

Cheers Gav.

 

However, I'm not sure that this is the answer to my problem anymore. I've since tried to connect my blackberry to other routers (sky, BT) I can connect to each, no problem but I am not able to access the internet (no such problem across the mobile network). I'm awaiting a response from the Blackberry team at virgin now.

 

Fingers crossed

 

Perry
