    Hi everyone. I've had this phone for about 2 weeks, and it has always had a problem with my WIFI network.

    my network is secured with WPA2.

    My phone has no problem finding the network, but when i try to connect it just says: "remembered, secured with WPA2" and nothing happens or "connection unsuccessful, try again"

    When i click on the network again, i choose "connect" but it keeps on doing the same and disconnects.

    I tried resetting the phone, the router and re-entering the password. But it is stil the same!When i make my network an open network and then try connecting, it just says "disconnected" under "WIFI"...

    Does anyone know what is wrong? Thanks.

    X8 doesn't work with WPA2 --> only works with WPA2 Personal.
    suggest you use WEP.

    cheers :)

    @evil nemesis - there is nothing wrong with the X8 software.

    X8 Hardware Reference:
    security: Open, Open WEP, Shared WEP, WPA Personal and WPA2 Personal
    channel range: 1-10

    After having lots of disconnects I think I got it. I set my router to only use 11g mode only (no bgn mix, no, gnmix, etc). I am using WPA 2 PSK and so far, no disconnects for like 3 or 4 hours (previously I had disconnects every 30 or so minutes)

    edit: hmm, it seems that what I said is not quite right as I am still facing disconnections. Weird.

    ps: I tried WEP and the phone wouldn't even connect. It wasn't even listed in my routers statics of assigned IPs

    I have a Xpeira Arc S and had problems dropping the wifi connection. After an upgrade of firmaware the phone stayed connected.
    BUT after that, everytime I have had my router/modem powered off, the phone won't connect when I power on again.

    To get connected again I have to:

    1) Disable the WIFI security of the router so it is open (no problem connecting)

    2) Put the secutriry settings back [WPA/WPA2-Personal(PSK), WPA-PSK, TKIP+AES]

    The everything works, until next time I power off and on the router/modem.

    My Belkin model is # F5D7633-4
    The firmware upgrade i used was version: 1.00.17, OS compatibility: Any from Belkin : Support F5D7633au ADSL2+ ROUTER W/MODEM * 802.11g - Firmware Update

    As I don't want my router powered on 24/7 please anybody, is there any permanent solution??
