sounds like it could be a prob with the security protocols...

1. find out which protocol your wifi network is using
2. check with your bb provider to see if the security protocol you're using is compatible with the bb model you have

It sounds like your wireless network is adhoc. It's a pain to get it working ussualy. At least from my android experience. Might this help you? http://www.ehow.com/how_6127180_do-blackberry-connect-ad-hoc_.html
