    I have just upgraded to Android 2.1 on Orange(UK). When I connect to wifi (home WEP and open), it says I am connected - shows IP address etc, but nothing actually works through the wifi - can't synch Exchange email, can't download from market, won't even update location on Google Maps. If I switch wifi off everything works fine over mobile network, but that is insustainable due to data charges.
    Anybody got any ideas?

    Assuming it worked prior to the upgrade, have you any other AP connections stored? If so try "forgetting" i.e. deleting all connections, reboot the handset and then reconnecting to your home AP.

    Thanks for the response - I have tried your suggestion with no joy. I have also tried changing security settings on the router (all options), still the same. It worked fine before 2.1 and I havent changed anything else.

    Do you happen to have a MAC filter on your router?
