Wi-fi Connection

I have a BlackBerry Curve 8520 WITHOUT a data plan.

I am trying to connect to my private protected wireless network to access the internet.

The white wi-fi logo turns white and it says "T-Mobile: Hauser Home Network" and everything acts like it's working.

The web browser is set to Internet Browser not web2go.

However, whenever I try to access any website, direct link or google search, I get the error message:

"Unable to connect to the Internet, please try again later.

If the problem persists please contact your service provider."

This error is easy to reproduce.

Set up a wifi point with WEP. Mistype one character (or even get it right) and you see this. Test this with WPA or no security.

I have tried setting my wi-fi network up with every security option possible. It still does not work.

Like I said, it acts like it is connected, but it can't connect to the internet still.

I can't duplicate this.

I only have a BB World Edition.

But last week I had this failure on some Augen 7 inch Windows CE netbook. Cheap thing but it blew (has a bug) the WIFI implementation. This thing can't get the IP addresses but did "connect." So I had to manually enter in an IP, netmask, DNS and gateway.

Sorry but all that appears to be Greek to some but now it works.
