At the moment I can only browse on Edge at home as when it tries to get on my network it tells me it can't connect. I can see the connect bars in the browser, and my Powerbook and iMac are still connected, but the phone can't do it. Any ideas?

    I had to put my network key into mine to get it to connect. Im not exactly sure how to find it I saved mine in word for just such an occasion.

    Yeah. I had this problem. Just switch between the differenty types of security until you connect. You are probably entering a password using WEP when you need WPA or vice versa... You'll get it. There are only 4 or so options.

    Another thing to anyone having trouble.

    Once you have the entry setup, click on the network to attempt a connect... you don't need to exit to the main menu to connect. Keep trying combinations until it works. Check things like "Password / Ascii or Hex" - I needed to go to Ascii - Hex.

    I had network issues as well. This was mostly due to the fact I have a client list with allowed MAC addresses. Of course I knew this, but was having trouble FINDING the MAC address for the phone.

    Go to Settings/General/About on the phone to find it.

    I had no problems when on my father-in-laws unsecured wifi network, but here at home, I cannot get the wifi to stick. I've reset, picked the various ASCI scenarios, toggled Airplane Mode, etc., but nothing is working - maybe I'll try the Apple Store as well.
