I am using a WebView in my app, I've set up everything including the Internet permission. I then try to get the Simulator to connect and find my WiFi, but it is unable to find any and I am not sure what dto do. P.S. I am using the simulator at work, so I connect to the internet through a proxy if that helps.
Help would be most appreciated.

The simulator does not support the simulation of Wi-Fi or a cellular radio right now. We make use of the networking interface that is provided by VMWare so we can't detect an actual Wi-Fi signal.
If firewalls on your local machine are an issue you can change into bridged mode which will remove NAT that VMWare will put your VM behind. Instructions on how to do this are below.
1) Power down your VM
2) In VMWare select your VM and then click "Edit Virtual Machine Settings"
3) Select Network Adapter
4) Change from NAT to Bridge mode, which will allow the simulator to have direct access your physical network card.
5) Start the simulator again.

When you say not getting the wifi connection what do you mean?
Does VMware Player show an IP address?
Is this address pingable?
Is this address within the same IP range as the rest of your network?
