    Hi, I am in a deployed location in Afghanistan and within my compound, we utilize satellite internet and broadcast it via WIFI just for us who have paid. Some of the guys here have implemented a few security features so other people around us can hack our network. The WIFI is encrypted with WPA2 and a password. After that to surf on the internet on my laptop I have to input a proxy address of 10.10.8.2, I can connect to the wireless via my Desire, but I cant surf the internet, check email, or do anything that requires a data connection. Other people here have no problem getting their Ipod touches and Iphones on the WIFI. Is there some setting I am over looking because to me there are not a lot of settings I can change in the first place. If I need to download a program to help, please give info how to do so without an internet connection directly on the phone. Thank you if you have read this far and for any help you can give me

    I just don't understand why the Desire is missing such basic functionality. Is there some technical reason why no one has written an app to solve the problem?

    I'm starting to miss my iPhone :eek:
