    I have 3bars of service for wifi strengh and when I try to go to the market place, or even the internet, I cant connect? I've tried switching with mobile data on and off and same thing happens. I have no problem getting on line with digital coverage tho.

    Sounds like the router may be the issue. Delete the connection and try to add it again.

    Do you own a Hartge M3 or is it your dream car or something?

    Yes, you should be able to connect to the internet - something is wrong (assuming that the wireless router itself is correctly configured and is itself "connected to the internet")

    This may be a bit of a long shot, but I'll throw it out there because the router in question is very common:

    If you are using a Linksys WRT54G router with older firmware, and you have it configured for WPA PSK(AES), your Eris will give exactly the symptoms you describe: it can connect to the router, but nothing more.

    See this Google bug report

    I recently ran into this, and updating to the most recent release of firmware resolved the problem (Note: do not, under any circumstance, use Safari to apply firmware updates to Linksys routers - if you have a Mac, download and use Firefox for this, or read up on how to use "TFTP" on a Mac to do the same job.)

    It is possible that this doesn't apply to you - you didn't supply any specific details of the setup which is giving you problems.
