Try going into the Settings/Connections/WLAN settings, and looking for the Power tab.

Make sure the slider is fully Left, for maximum performance. By default it is fully Right, and no PPC I've ever owned has sustained a home router connection with that setting!

Once you do that, restart WiFi, and hopefully you should get the 'Connect' wizard from where you can enter the relevant credentials.

Be aware that if you are using WEP encryption, you must enter the full hex key, in hex format. PPC's don't accept WEP 'passphrases', though WPA is OK.

I have the slider all the way on the left for max performance and it still doesnt do anything.

Is there a walk through posted somewhere showing all the settings needed on the phone and router? Thanks!!
