    my legend cant connect to the router at our home. it keeps asking for the password. when i type it en press connect it only gives a notion that it can't connect to the network. i have tried standing next to it or a couple of feet away but it doesn't work.

    any one an idea?

    Try switching between both WPA and WEP passwords, I've experienced that phones don't always like both!

    If it's a hidden connection, delete it, reboot the phone and re-add it manually.

    Sometimes I find that the WiFi needs 'prompting' into waking up / connecting even if the antenna is active, firing up WiFi Analyser usually does the trick for me.
