    Setup BlackBerry with Wireless Router

    Advertisement



    I have a BlackBerry 8830, and was trying to figure out is how to enable a Wireless in my blackberry and connect it to my Wireless DSL router.

    My phone signal is very poor in an area I live, and was told by a friend that 8830 allows you to connect your phone to your wireless router to boost your voice signal.

    I could not see any option in my 8830 to setup a SSID and WEP security key.

    Please advise.

    Thanks,

    In "Setup Wifi" option

    If your router is broadcasting SSID - select it then it will prompt you to enter WEP key.
    or select "Manually Add Network" enter the SSID and on the following screen select "Security Type"

    The 8830 does not have a WIFI radio chip built in - so sorry you cannot do this
