    Hi guys,

    I was hoping you could help me with an issue I'm having with the wi-fi on android. As many of us know, android has no native support for proxies, unfortunately my school's network uses a proxy server to access the internet. I have a wireless router connected to the network so i can have wireless on my laptop and such. What I was wondering was, can I use the router to allow my android phone to access the internet as well? I reckon it's just a matter of forwarding the right ports to the phone but I'm not sure which ports are in use. I'm using a htc desire and a d-link dir-600 router.

    Any advice on this would be really appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Your school lets you install your own wireless router on their network? That is completely shocking to me.

    I have ideas, but I'm not comfortable helping you basically hack your school's network. I'm a sysadmin myself and would be extremely pissed if I found out one of my users put an unauthorized WAP on my network and configured it to bypass security I'd put in place.
