Known wireless connection issue with 2.3.6 -- with a twist
I'm having the known issue connecting to a WiFi network (v 2.3.6, Motorola Atrix). It's happening only at work -- with my home router, I'm fine.
The progression is:
-- Notification: Wireless networks available
-- Go into Wireless settings to select network (there are three available to me).
-- Select the preferred network.
This goes on ad infinitum. I am simply unable to connect to a work network, despite excellent signal strength.
I've read that this is a known bug in 2.3.6 with no fix from Google (unless there's a recent one I don't know about). I've also read that changing an IP setting on the router will fix the problem. And THAT'S my issue -- it's not my router. I work for a large university with thousands of employees, and cannot configure the router to my own needs.
Is there any workaround for this, not having access to the router settings?
