    To access the wireless at my university the network is 'open' but you have to sign in (personal user name and pass) via a login webpage prior to actually being connected to the wifi. It's kind of annoying to have to do this every time instead of the phone just connecting to the network.

    So two options that I am wondering would be possible:

    1. best case, somehow it can automatically sign into the network once it is detected (e.g. run a script which enters login/pass to webpage)

    2. at least have the user name and pass remembered (i cant figure out how to have it remember logins).

    Any help would be great, #2 should be possible I just haven't figured it out yet; #1 maybe not but I hope that would be super sweet! Thanks!

    **I should note, I have disabled cell tower data transfer (reason I bought the nexus one so I didn't have to pay $30 a month when wifi is everywhere!). So accessing wifi is the only way I get data connection; hence the importance of directly/automatically connecting ;)

    ***Here is a link to a forum where it looks like someone presents a solution for a computer; I'm not sure if this can be extended to the N1:

    except it's our corporate guest network that requires an e-mail address and a checkbox click.

    The script thing is a good idea, but I don't know how to even try that. Here's all I know.

    To have it remember usernames/passwords:
    1) Go to browser.
    2) Press menu button on phone.
    3) Click "More" in bottom right corner.
    4) Click "Settings"
    5) Scroll down to "Security Settings" and the first option should be "Remember Passwords" with a check box. Make sure the box is checked.

    You can also try checking "Remember Form Data", which is slightly above the "Remember Passwords" option.
