Hi all

Got a new HTC Touch2 recently but cannot get its WiFi to pick up my local WiFi Access Point

* I can "see" our 2 neighbours secured AccessPoints (they are new units ), be it intermittently due to the distance.
* Ive got an oldish Linksys with 802.11B.  My 3 Laptops can see and access it OK
* Its got WEP as Mandatory, SSID Broadcast and is currently using Channel 6 and MAC Filters

Ive turned off MAC filters, turned off WEP but still the phone doesn't even see the AccessPoint to connect to.

Have created a connection in the phone manually, but still wont connect.  If I take the phone right up next to the AP, still no go.

Any ideas ... or is it time to upgrade the AP. :(

PS>  Have tried Channel 11 as well

No issues with getting my Touch 2 to connect to my Linksys WAG160N AccessPoint, nor to AeroHive devices at work. I would suggest it may be your AccessPoint, although are you sure you can connect properly elsewhere - just to rule out hte Touch 2 itself?

Cool ... so it does work with 802.11n ... so might get an upgrade :)
Yea, Ive got a MacMini which connects OK, as well as two Windows XP laptops.  They can all see the SSID being broadcast and can connect.  Just seems strange that this doesn't even see it to connect too.
