    I've had issues like this with multiple mobile devices before and it always seemed to be related to not broadcasting the SSID. No idea if this applies to you of course without more info on your setup.

    OK so it worked OK with the Admire but not with the connect and it is a 4 to 5 year old Belkin wireless n router.. I could be wrong without having a model number for your router ti look it up, but if I'm right then that router is draft n and has compatibility issues with newer wireless n devices. The Admire appears to have only been wireless g so your wouldn't have noticed these issues with it. Unless you want to turn off the wireless n and only use wireless g then you probably want to look at upgrading your wireless router. Keep in mind though that if you have any other devices also using draft n they could have problems with the upgrade. If your devices that old are only wireless g then there should be no risk.

    Actually you did provide the model number. Sorry about that. A quick Google confirmed that it is a draft N router so that's your issue. Your options are pretty much to either turn off wireless N and revert to wireless G at home or to replace your router. I don't know why someone thought it was a good idea to release wireless N before the standard was ready (hence the draft N)
