To connect via wifi we would have the Mac (there is no router noted in your post) set to ADHOC mode and as I don't see you writing about adhoc setup and more, it looks to be a failed setup.
Here's the deal. These setups are not user friendly enough. Try bluetooth next time to the Mac.
Have a new BB Bold 9000, can not get it to connect with my Intel iMac via Wi-Fi. It shows connected but under the connection no green cheeck mark and it is connecting to the web thru Edge network. Any suggestions?
