    Questions that might help you troubleshoot it...

    Did this just start recently?

    Does wifi work elsewhere, at a friend or neighbor's house or a free wifi place nearby?

    If you restore a backup or flash another rom (after backing up what you have now) does it still not work?

    Do other wifi devices such as a laptop connect to the same wifi ok? - check, the eris is ok.

    I'd back up what you have and either restore an older backup or install an older rom that you know it worked on. At least then you know if it somehow stopped working on the phone, hardware wise, or if some app or other software got in the way. By then bb.5 might be ready for you!
