Afternoon all,

My spanky new phone arrived today and after updating it i went into Uni. When i tried to connect to the "UC Wireless" network with my username and password (the correct ones) it game me an error message

"Network Unreachable" or something similar.

These are the settings for WinXP

http://www.it.canterbury.ac.nz/web/wireless/winxp.shtml

Is there a way to access an advanced Wi-Fi menu on the phone? i Couldn't find a way to enter in specific details, it looked like it just tried to pull all the information off the network itself and failed.

Cheers,

Chris

I'll need to go back into uni on Monday but there wasn't an error code. It just said connection unsuccessful.

Interesting review maybe next time i should scream it it

Alright more information.

Connection unsuccessful: Cannot reach wireless network

More network information:

UCWireless: WPa2 Ent - includes certificate*
UCInsecure: Hidden SSID **

* - http://www.icts.canterbury.ac.nz/web/wireless/ucwireless.shtml

** -  According to Microsoft they deemed hidden networks a security risk and blocked them

Anyone got any idea whats going on? When i Google the problem i get conflicting results, some saying it wont work, some saying it will.

in the HTC WP7 marketplace they have an app for hidden SSID's. Can you install that, manually enter the wifi info and see if it connects.

link at the bottom of the article to find the app. Mango RTM is also adding support for hidden SSID's.
