    Tried it yesterday in a cafe which had a sign advertising free wifi but I got an error message about not having the right sort of account. At home the phone only works on wifi sporadically. (Sorry if the details are scant

    The message loops through "Scanning" then "Obtaining IP address" then "Disconnected" and the network status ends as "Disabled, secured with WEP".

    Are you close enough to the router?
    What ROM?
    Have you tried Blade wifi fix from the Market?

    Thanks. Have downloaded wifi fix and will post again if that doesn't do the trick. What do you mean by "What ROM?"

    A ROM is the phones OS. Some newer custom ones have the latest wifi drivers which should help
