I have searched the forums at length, and found many WiFi issues, but not one that matched this. If I missed it, pleased kindly redirect me!
The school district where I work has recently installed a new Guest Network, whereby ANY WiFi device may attach to it, as long as they have a district username and password. This is really nice, as it requires no tinkering with ip addresses and such.
However, there is no checkbox to tell the network to remember your settings, so every time it asks you for this info, you must type it out. Not a big problem, but for whatever reason, it is asking my touchpad two to three times an hour for my log-in credentials. Others in my building with devices from different manufacturers don't seem to be getting this message, so I am inclined to believe that webOS is not doing a great job of storing this info in a cookie (or whatever else would store it). It is annoying to the nth degree, making it almost not worth having.
My questions are: has anyone else experienced this? If so, have you found a solution, be it in the settings, or maybe someone has written a patch/app for this?
Thanks to any and all.
