    Hi Tom, welcome to Android Forums!

    Can you confirm that you're unable to connect to any data service such as web sites or email servers? In Settings/Wireless & networks/Wi-Fi settings, does Wi-Fi indicate "Connected to <your_SSID>"?

    It says it is connected to my network and i can go surfing on the net and all the normal stuff but when i tryed to look at a video on facebook of a friend it says i should either connect to my mobile network or allow data download on my wi-fi connection and prompts me to go to the setting in wi-fi but i cant find what setting i need to change

    Well, that's new. It can browse the internet through a browser but can't open video files on FB? Have you tried the following:

    1. Play videos from Youtube
    2. Use the data connection through your provider

    Have you tried using Friend Stream? It's the HTC app/widget that combines FB with Twitter.
