Wifi Connection Problem
I bought the Incredible S, and my girlfriend the Desire S. We love them. We didnt have any problems connecting to our wifi indoors. Over the last 6 months I have bolted onto numerous wifi spots and never found it more complicated than scan, connect, enter password - which is convenient as I am not especially techy.
However, we went abroad recently, and in the wifi area of the hotel our phones could see the wifi, connect to it, but not be able to load pages or access the internet. We spoke to a number of other people who had varying handsets and laptops, and it was only our HTC phones with the problem. We asked a local IT guy and after mucking about with our phones, he got them working. Awesome.
Now I am back home I am finding I am having that same problem at home. Our phones see the internet, bolt onto it, but are unable to return pages. We have numerous other devices in the house we have disconnected and reconnected to the wifi without problem, and we have even taken another device from our house to a local coffee shop and connected to the wifi there without problem, but the phones are not having it.
The friendly foreign IT man must of changed something in the phone settings somewhere meaning it worked in that country but now doesnt back home, but I didnt ask him what he was doing. I assumed everything would be ok when I got home.
Can anybody please help?
Thanks so much!
