    Default Wireless works, but no Internet

    Just got a new Nookcolor.
    It is finding my wireless just fine, but after a few minutes I get, “Connected, but No Internet”. It is staying hooked to the net, just no internet. Then it will hook up and work for a bit and then, same problem.

    I know the router is working OK, we have two iPhones, two laptops, and two iMacs on the net that are staying on-line fine.

    Thoughts?

    What security settings are you using? If you are on WEP do you think you could set the router to WAP2 instead? Mine works fine using that. I know it will mean having to change the security settings on your other devices but that's my best suggestion.

    I was having the same problem, I switched from WEP 64 to WEP 128 and it started to work fine.

    If you are running an open network not using WEP, or WAP, then you might try reconfiguring the router to mixed B and G, (turning off N). I noticed that the Nook was also bumping other devices off the router in addition to the main issue of not getting the internet, before I turned off the N capability of the router. My Router is a D-Link DIR 615

    I've had the same issue periodically, and have reset the router, pushing in the small button with the paperclip. That fixes it immediately for me, though it does seem like there is some sort of "fight" for connectivity between devices.
