i find with current handsets, it helps if the router is set to use WPA+WPA2 encryption, so that most devices will work.  I wouldn't advise using WEP, its not secure and old technology.

your 9100 should be able to connect fine, as its using v5.0 OS and should recognise WPA2.

many devices have this problem where it will only connect to WEP.  Change your Wireless access point to use a WEP password instead.

Hi,

I believe a few thinks might be occuring here:

1. I believe only TKIP is supported, not AES
2. Try manually adding the connection - ssid is case sensitive so make sure you enter it as 'seen' when you scan for wifi APs
3. PSK is your WPA key - under security, select PSK (Pre Shared Key)
Hope this helps,

Regards,


RobMobility.
