Default what's the trick to connect wifi?

Please Login to Remove!

I've both followed my nose and read the instruction manual in addition to looking at the faqwiki and don't seem to be having any luck. I'm trying to connect to wifi, and have failed (in different ways) to connect to two networks.

The closest I got was at an open t-mobile hotspot at the local starbucks. When I turn on wifi there, the status icon in the "manage connections" screen was a yellow dot with a minus sign, which doesn't seem to be ref'd in the instruction manual. The wifi logo on the home screen did not turn blue. The wifi diagnostics showed "association", a local IP address, a signal level, data rate, and connected status. There was some sort of error in the VPN section that I didn't pay attention to since as far as I know I'm not trying to use VPN. I was unable to ping google.com.

The other network I completely failed to connect to is an old Apple Airport card in my iMac that I use to share my broadband internet connection. I just got an unexplained network error with that.

The last network I have to try is my work, which is WPA secured.

Any tips for getting this stuff to work?

Thanks,

Jay
