    Hi guyz,
    Is there any application or means of connecting to the wifi internet by having a dynamic ip address but change the gateway and port no. to be connected to?

    I can access the internet through a particular gateway and port no. only. If there is someway i can do this, it will be really helpful. I stay in a hostel where we have wifi access, but i need to specify these specific address to access internet.

    Thanks in advance.

    You mean you connect through a proxy server?

    Yes... I've a network where the IP address allocation is dynamic but we need to give the gateway as '172.xx.xx.xx' and Port No.: '80xx'.

    Through the settings in Wifi system, I can choose only a static ip and gateway together... :(

    Regards,
    Vammy

    "Gateway" and "proxy" aren't the same thing.

    If you have to set a port number then it sounds like you're talking about a proxy server, in which case to the best of my knowledge the short answer is "you can't," it's not supported.

    I know it is not supported in the Android OS. Do you know any application which will help us do this? :thinking:

    The only other things I found were for Android emulators rather than handsets, or didn't do what you're looking for. Sorry dude, I'm out of ideas.
