Default connecting to internet with browser and web apps behind firewall

Please Login to Remove!

i've upgraded to the OS and when surfing the internet and using apps such as app world and bbc news work well when i am at home

however when i am at work behind my company's firewall i am unable to connect using those apps although i can check email on the build in email app

previously on the older os 1.0 when i tried to connect at work initially it would ask me to authenticate using my username and password which would then grant access to all the web apps on my playbook - this doesn't happen anymore - any suggestions?

I seem to recall seeing similar issues elsewhere and I think it was related to the browser thinking it was using the bridge, I think the solution was to turn off bluetooth, see if that makes a difference.
