Windows Mobile 6 with WPA-PSK


I have problems with connecting to internet through router with WPA-PSK on my Windows Mobile 6 device (Vodafone v1615)

The router is set to be WPA-PSK, AES, and I can connect to this with password on mobile (I get IP address), however I can't browse internet (I can browse connected with my laptop).

On wifi settings it comes to the "Configure Network Authentication" page. The "Use IEEE 802.1x network access control" is disabled and ticked and I cannot untick it. "EAP type" is set to "Smart card or certificate" and I can't change that either.

Wifi works on mobile with other routers so something todo with WPA-PSK - no sure how to fix this. Don't want to have to change router - its not mine.

Help appreciated, thank-you

I am having this problem also.  I have an HTC mobile running Windows Mobile 6.0 and my Linksys Router has WPA2-PSK (AES) enabled and I am unable to uncheck the "Use IEEE 802.1x network access control" check box as it is greyed out.

Other Windows Mobile 6 users seem to be experiencing the same issue.  I came accross these forum posts while looking into this matter:

Does anyone have any ideas how this can be disabled as I would rather not open up my network for WIFI access?

I have no problem connecting to a WPA2-PSK (AES) Wifi with WM6.0 and 6.1.
And for information, I also have the "Use IEEE 802.1x network access control" greyed out and enabled. So I don't think that's the problem.

Have you tried with the broadcasting SSID enabled ?

thanks for help

-followed these instructions, got connected but no internet access

-I am now home so don't need feature anymore. I'll try next time.  I disabled security altogether on wifi and can connect from phone and get access. On changing the router to have WEP only, the router didn't work - it insists on WPA2-PSK  or no security

So no real conclusion, however I'll split points, hope this is fine
