    Hello, first post here :D

    Anyway, I want to connect to my home network (Wifi) but it doesn't connect and keeps saying disconnected even though it's signal strength is excellent.:thinking:

    It doesn't connect to my home network (Orange) but it connects to open networks like BTOpenzone and BTOpenzone-H.....

    Please help!

    Welcome to the Forum!

    One question, is your home network open or password protected?

    It's password protected and I have entered it correctly.

    You may want to look at updating the firmware of the router.

    You need to go to the manufacturers website of your router and find a How-to guide to update it.

    Ok, something else to try is downloading Wifistatic from the market then open the application choose to add configuration. before you add the configuration though, remove and reinsert power to the router and then attempt to connect the phone.
