I am working off Singapore where the government provides free outdoor Wireless network at most places. The authentication method will be simple web-base redirections. As long as you can get onto the webpage from your Blackberry, you are considered covered.
Thing is, before my Blackberry activation, I will have few profile selection from my Browser's option page, eg. Blackberry Browser, WIFI Browser, Internet Browser and WAP Browser. I tested the WIFI connection, it works. I know the WIFI works because I took out the SIM card and to disconnect from GPRS network.
After the Blackberry activation, it seems to me that the Browser options on multiple Browser Profile selection is no longer available. The Browser Profile name became 'Company Browser' and I can't select any other connection profile.
What I don't understand is, the company administrator told me that WIFI is not disabled, it suppose to work. Well, I guess it may work if the WIFI connection is using home router or direct connection without authentication, because you get connected immediately. When web authentication comes into play, I need to first get on to the webpage. If I can't select WIFI profile, my Browser will not get to the authentication page, it will use default GPRS to surf the net. So now I am kind of stuck. If I take out the SIM card, the WIFI won't work because I can't choose WIFI profile from the menu.
Anyone has similar issue? Can someone explain to me what are the 4 browser profiles in 8320 works? How does the BB know which connection to default to when I select one of the profile? What if both GPRS and WIFI is available, what does the B unit do?
