Re: wifi issues

I got right in to my home WiFi the 1st day that I bought my nook.

 

I'd try calling CS again, maybe another tech coukd walk you through, it's worth a  try.

Re: wifi issues

Are you letting the Nook scan and find your WiFi?  Do you have SSID broadcasting?  Do you have security on it, and are you putting in the correct password?  Do you have MAC address filtering on?

 

We really need more information, like does it find the network, but not connect, what exactly is or isn't happening.


Mine connects just fine.

Have you gone over to the Nook Q&A Support forum?

Re: wifi issues

I have a ssid address which the nook recognizes. I have put in my wep key and my internet provider has told me I dont have any security issues that wouldnt allow the nook to connect. My nook is connected and shows a full wifi signal. when I try to go to the "web" icon  I get the error message that says "web page not available" "Your nook's web browser could not load http://bn.com/. When I go to the shop icon I get the error message "network unavailable" please make sure you have network connectivity. When I go to settings under wifi it says connected to ZyXEL.OB7. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Re: wifi issues

When you put in your WEP key, are you putting in the passphrase (full alphanumerics) or the passkey (numbers 0-9 plus letters A-F)?  If it is the passphrase, try the passkey instead.  If you can't find the passkey, but know the passphrase, there are online translators you can use. 

 

Also, are you using open authentication or shared authentication?  In my own lab network tests, shared authentication did not work.
