    Hi Peeps

    Ok I cant connect to any open networks via WiFi, I have set up fine on my home network..Im i missing something. Also i couldnt get this to work with the stock orange 1.5, but didnt really explore why either. As i was ok with home use. I am travelling away from home more now and would like to connect to a open network. I have asked if i need a passwork and username but still no joy.. Is it a safety measure from orange i need to unable???

    Thanks

    my phone HTC HERO

    All you should have to do for an open AP is tap the desired name under wifi connections to connect..... are you seeing any error msgs at all?

    Does your AP have an access list? A list of MAC addresses that can connect to the network?

    You should see "Connecting to...." under the network name then, if connection is made, "Obtaining IP address....".
