I have just switched over to fido. I was told by the fido phone rep that the BB8520 would suit me as I explained I did not want to purchase a data plan but wanted to be able to access wifi networks (at home and out and about). I received the BB last Thursday, and cannot access the wifi network to browse the internet, even though it clearly shows a connection. (I'm currently at home and in a wifi enabled area)
I phoned Fido and the technical rep stated that he could not help me with this issue and said I would find my answer here in the technical community.

Solved! Go to Solution.
Here's an update for anyone who is interested:
The problem in the end had to do with my D Link wireless router. I called D Link and they suggested performing a hard reset on the router itself. Everything worked after I did that.
