my brother just got one of these yesterday.

today he tried to set up his gmail account on it, but it comes back with " cannot establish a reliable connection to the server"

the wifi is connected to our network.

maybe something we've missed??

Can it get on the net with the wireless? What is he trying to configure it in?

as soon as he clicks on the gmail application it asks him to either set up an account or sign in with an existing account.

or when i tried to search through the google search on the home screen speedtest.net it asks for him to sign in

just tried signing into the marketplace but after signing with his gmail account(correctly)

"it says can't establish a reliable data connection to the server."

"this could be a temporary problem or your phone may not be provisioned for data services. if it continues , call customer care"

he can sign into the facebook app on the phone so appears to be a google problem?

Read post 24 (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=780545&page=3)

The workaround that exists is to register your Google account through your YouTube app, after which your gmail for that account will be synced now. Try it, it worked for me.
