    HTC Desire Network Settings

    Hi

    Does anyone have a HTC Desire, if so, is it possible to have separate network settings for Wi-Fi connections as you can the iPhone, for example DHCP for the home connection and static for work. Also, is it possible to set a proxy?

    Cheers
    Paul

    Not with stock ROM's, no. There are a ton of threads on here relating to this, search for "android" and you'll find them

    So even if I put a rom on my phone, there is still no proxy access? Can't believe google left it out in the first place

    Static IP Toggle - Android app on AppBrain

    Would seem to do a static/dhcp toggle but you'd still have the proxy problem.

    As much as not being able to have a proxy (with standard roms) is annoying to us geeks, in practice, I don't think many non-geek people actually need wi-fi access at school - a 3G connection with reasonable data plan usually does the job.

    A simple profile switching app (home with wi-fi and school with it switched off) should meet your teacher's needs.

    Is Opera Mobile the only option when it comes to browsing the web via a proxy on a non-rooted phone?

    Apps > Voice Dialer > {say the word} Proxy (Not sure if works on Standard ROM)

    or

    Setup an APN with the required Proxy Settings. (Never tried, just a suggestion).

    I believe, (but never tried as I actually don't need it) that you can bodge things and pretend you are using a 3G network (which do allow proxies) but actually connect via wifi. have a google, try the solutions out and let us know

    Apps > Voice Dialer > {say the word} Proxy (Not sure if works on Standard ROM)
    This def doesn't work on standard roms

    BTW I've got proxy support (as I'm using CyanogenMod ROM) but I just don't bother using it.

    regards
