Weird wifi issues
Hi all - out of ideas, so thought I'd try asking here.
I'm at the Microsoft Management Summit conference, and they have open wifi that reaches most of the rooms they're holding sessions in, including a lounge area. I can see the network, connect to the network, get an IP, but I can't seem to get out to the internet. The little wireless icon in upper part of Droid 3 screen stays mostly gray (on rare occassions it'll briefly turn blue).
Items to note, not sure how much this stuff matters:
- My laptop connects fine from the same spot.
- I'm rooted.
- I have the wireless radio hack for wifi tethering
- I've rebooted phone a half dozen times with same issue
- Wifi tech guy at conference said no one else is reporting issues
- My wifi has worked fine on this phone in every other place I've ever tried
Thanks in advance for any help....
