Using Key words "interface=wifi" and "deviceside=true"



I am using a browser field in my application. In emulator it works fine but when deployed to the device it needs key woeds:


 interface=wifi      - to connect to internal network

along with :

 deviceside=true  - for connecting to interne


When i open a webpage "m.facebook.com"


it does not log me in.


I am not sure why shoud i use these keywords. It should automaticallydetect the type of network. is there any way to do this (make my application automatically detect network) ?


I have to append these key words every time a redirect or image url is formed within the aplication. I am using browser field demo application.


Will I have to allways append these lines. What if I have to use GPRS. And why did my application does not login to facebook ??


Another one..when i tried another site, the images on the button (HTML) did not show ? is css not supported ?
