    Edit: Got the WiFi working by restarting lol. But Please read on.
    Eidt again: Okay it stopped working again. Have to type is all again.

    So i was using HTC Hero Wifi for a couple of days, when it stopped working. I cannot use the market, browser or anything. Same router, connection etc. I am sure the router is working because I am using it now. On the browser it says This Webpage is unavailable and on the market it says A network error has occured. Anybody know how to fix this? I restarted, it worked for a couple of minutes and then stopped again. In settings, the phone shows that it is actually connected to my network.

    Thanks Alot

    Have a search through the threads and you will see this is quite a common problem. It seems for some reason the Hero does not like some routers. People have suggested you should use b or g mode not n mode. Others suggested assigning a channel for the phone rather than having it auto select. You could try either of those and see if it works

    I have 3 routers. 2 work fine. 1 (the newest from Belkin) will not work. It reports as connected but I just keep getting network error.
