I obtained my Blackberry 8320 from my son. He swapped it for an iPhone and I completely agree with his choice.
With this very BB he was able to Wi-Fi connect in the UK and I thought it would be easy to set up the BB in France.
I unblocked the phone, inserted my SFR SIM card and made and received calls then set about using the Wi-Fi.
I have read dozens of posts where BB users have been unable to connect and I now am a member of that group.
I have the BB 8320, a Netgear WPN824 Wi-Fi router and a Freebox modem. (Free is my ISP)
I have disabled the TCP settings, they are now blank. I selected the default browser as Wi-Fi Hotspot. I changed the browser settings to Wi-Fi only mode. And turned on the Wi-Fi connection under the Manage Connections button.
The BB sees the network but cannot connect.“Cannot assign an IP address”
I have given my Netgear WPN824 router the (device) MAC address of my BB and am now in the throes of trying to understand why the error message “Cannot assign an IP address” appears.
From what I read no-one knows or is capable of resolving the problem. Is it the BB or is it the router or even the modem?
I was looking forward to using the BB but having spent three days trying all combinations I am about to give up and sell the BB or even give it away.
Unless someone knows what is wrong.
