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,

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.
