[maemo-users] Problem connecting through captive portal(s)

Bad Dog,

it would help if you could provide more detail about where the problem 
arises? Is it a throughput problem, a connection availability problem, 
an authentication problem (assuming the service provider requires 
authentication), or what?

One thing you could do if you have a notebook computer with wireless and 
running Windows or Linux is to install Ethereal and run a packet trace 
of the connection to see in some detail what it is going on, presuming 
that the service will work fine with a notebook computer.

Best Regards,


John Holmblad
