Proxy & port settings with WiFi Radar?
I want to use a free WiFi internet connection at a university library (USU in Medan, North Sumatra - the university is one of the only ways to get internet access without sharing a room with smokers).
WiFi Rader detected the signal, but couldn't get an IP address. Another user, on a Windows machine, showed me his setup: an http proxy was set (188.8.131.52) and a port was specified: 9378. It seems like I can't access a proxy setting in WiFi Radar.
In desperation I tried setting Manual network configuration, putting the proxy address in the "IP" box. Tried to connect, and this time it said it obtained an IP address, but I still couldn't connect to the net?
Any suggestions as to how to connect?
