Cannot connect to internet via home broadband + router

5 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone,

I'm another newbie to the site and hope you might be able to help me out.

I just got the new HTC HD2 and I cant connect to the internet via my home wireless router.

I'm with virgin broadband and have a Netgear router. I can connect to the router but when I open any pages in either Opera or IE I get the following error:

cannot find server or dns error

I don't have a problem connecting to the internet on either of my laptops. I can access the internet from my phone using my O2 internet service provider but I rather use my wifi at home and O2 when I'm on the move.

If anyone could help me out I'd be extremely thankful as I've tried everyone and no-one seems to know much about the HTC HD2 as its still fairly new.

Regards

Jaz

Does your device get a valid IP address from the router?

Have you tried changing the security settings on your router?

I had a similar problem wih my Samsung Omnia. My router security was set to WPA-PSK. Although this worked fine for 2 laptops, the Omnia would often not connect.

I changed my router security to WEP. Now I have no more problems.

I would also say check the settings. Do a quick search online to find what security the HD2 supports then adopt accordingly!
