    Most likely have to open the browser and accept the usage agreement to use the network. It's connected, but until you accept it, you will have no network functionality.

    Kinda off topic but does anyone use the best wifi performance option under the advance menu in the wifi settings page? It says it may consume more power. Just wondering if its worth the tradeoff and how it works.

    I'm not seeing this advanced menu. Can you advise more specifically how to access it?

    Thanks Bolt. Who knew. That is also where you can change your wifi sleep policy. My wifi is plenty fast, but I'd love to hear about any results using it.

    Default touch screen issues logging into wifi

    This may be screen issue, but.... I am at an office suite that requires us to log in to the wifi (does not remember you after the first login)...I load the internet app (same for firefox and the stock internet app) the login screen appears, but when I touch the box to input the id and/or password I get no response.. i.e. the keyboard does not appear and the curser does not show in the box. I have tried several different keyboards, Swype, stock, etc. and get the same results. Then mysteriously, it works . Any ideas? Thanks!
