WiFi through a guest gateway

For a 9000

Yes, this might be a strange question and it might be an overload on security, but let me know if this makes sense.


I have a wireless set up where there is a WEP key and once that is entered in, then an IP address assigned to
a mobile device or laptop. Once the IP is issued, then you have to launch a web Browser to put in a guest gateway log in. My issue is, that I can't even get my browser to bring up the web page to log in. I have used AT&T's Media Net, Hotspot Browser and Opera-Mini.

I've taken it out of the guest gateway and just used the WEP and that was fine.  That's why I know it's because of the guest gateway.  I have WiFi at home at it works just fine, but the point is to be as secure as possible.


I've posted this in two other forums on two other sites and have not gotten a reponse back.


By default I use the Hotspot Browser.
In the Browser Config:
All 5 checkmarks are checked
Show Images - WML and HTML
Browser ID - IE

General Properties:

Enable Java is checked....
Prompt before:
