    So my SGN connects just fine to my home WIFI network. It connects just fine to my girlfriends parents WIFI network. It connects to my works WIFI network, except that the signal bars are greyed out, not blue and I get no data coming through. My ipod is connects fine, as did my dINC. I already get no 3g at work (metal building), if I can't connect to wifi, I might as well leave my phone at home. Anyone experience anything similar or know of a fix?

    it could be the way the router is set up at your work. Do you know what kind it is?

    Not exactly, we just got a new setup. There are access points all over the building now.

    Open the browser to see if it takes you to a confirmation page. Many routers require authorization (agree to their terms). The browser should automatically take you to the necessary page.

    That is how it works for many of the free open networks (airports, burger kings, hotels, etc).

    We're a private business so that doesn't apply to me

    So when I turn wifi off then back on, it turns blue for a second or two then goes back grey. So I'm losing connection for some reason.

    to me it still sounds like an access issue with your network.
