    Hi,

    In order to connect to my school wifi I have to signin using my web brower. Is there an app or setting where I can just auto logon to the wifi.


    Thanks,

    Donald

    There was a discussion a while back on Google Groups regarding this issue - it involved obtaining the correct certificate for the School login page and then manually uploading it to your DROID in order for the page to work correctly.

    I went looking in my BMs but found it faster by Googling it - go figure :p

    Install a web certificate on an Android device - Super User

    That should get you started on your hunt to figuring out your issue, I think.

    WifiLogin is no longer in the Market, and there is a good reason for it - it doesnt wanr you of expired certificates. Even if it did, still better to use a browser to chek-in first anyway, this way you can examine the cert, cancel the session, or continue if satisfied.

    problem is is that if the connection does not go through the common handshake authentication correctly, requiring you to log in first, the DROID usually drops it before you can actually load the webpage to authenticate. Hence the need for the certificates.
