Re: Problem with Wifi Name

Hi Anand04, there is currently no way to retrieve the network name in BlackBerry 10. This is currently under development. Please stay tuned for more information.

Re: Problem with Wifi Name

The best I can do is point you at another Q I just answered


There are mechanisms in the APIs that at least allow the possibility (personally I don't need them so am not really that bothered)


The code I point you at gives you IP of target plus other metrics

 Which should prove sufficient in any scenario I can see


I explain how to find out if you're in WiFi - which unless you're looking for a specific SSID should suffice


Soz I can't provide a more complete answer - only looked @ the issue yesterday
