    When I am connected to my home Wireless router I can not get into the Android Market. It says loading then just says "connection problems". If I turn off wifi it works fine. I have not tried this in any other hotspots. Is anyone else having this problem?

    Maybe related to my thread "Wi-Fi flakiness".

    I think it probably has to do with the way the market works. If you go to the android market from your computer you can see some (not all) of the apps but you can only download them from your phone. If you are on wifi you are technically "not on your phone". This is a guess on my part but I would bet that's the issue.

    I just used wireless to download and install an app from the Marketplace.
