Can't access my wifi. Both my Dell & iPhone show it's available, & it worked earlier this morning, but now, not only doesn't it default me in, but if I request access it doesn't recognize my PW. This doesn't make sense to me. What are my next steps? Thanks
Time to get a new smartphone, and I'll have a data contract for the first time. I'm a power user of computers, who carries 2k+ contacts and appointments around, and occasionally programs my own apps (what we oldtimers used to call "programs"). I'm really attracted to the dual screen of the Kyocero Echo, but it's 3G-only. I don't intend to tether/hotspot my phone. Will I miss the 4G, a/o "limitless" data plans?

Is 200 MB enough? I got an Ipod Touch for my birthday. It does have WiFi access but I don't want to have to run into a cafe every time I need to look something up online. So I'm in the market for a mobile WiFi hotspot and a wireless data plan. The cheapest plans available -- and I'm all about the cheap -- typically offer you c. 200 MB a month. [more inside]

Please please help me. Macbook pro wifi keeps going in and out at home. Used to be fine, now disconnects and says: "searching for network" WHILE the wifi bar says full bars and connected. I think it has to do with either network setting or the weird location thing. Here is a picture of my issue: Picture of wifi issue Somehow, the wifi is fine, but I am no longer connected to the internet. internet works fine at other peoples houses, just my house and certain cafes this problem of "searching" for the internet emerges while the wifi bars stay on full. Have tried rebooting computer, router etc. Thank you for any suggestions.
What's the best/cheapest wireless Internet or mobile broadband plan in Sydney? I want to stop using my 3 Mobile Broadband, but I'm not sure what to replace it with. There's no phone line in my apartment, so that's not an option. I'll mostly be using it for downloading games and music.

I have a Samsung Captivate smartphone with a rate plan and data plan. If I were to cancel my AT&T contract (and pay the required fee, of course), could the phone continue to be used to access the Web via Wi-Fi to sync my Google calendar/contacts/e-mail, surf the Web, and run Web-enabled apps? Would I lose anything else besides telephone and 3G data capabilities?

My husband and I are visiting Korea soon. Is the famous WiFi in Korea ubiquitous enough to use his iPhone 4 for web browsing and Skype? We're also renting an SKTelecom cellphone, but we'd like to use the iPhone for data-related tasks and travel apps. Is it just a matter of his iPhone jumping on any Wifi network (without incurring any roaming charges)? We're coming from the US (AT&T), and staying in Jeju and Seoul. [more inside]
What's a newer Android phone on t-mob where you can use a wifi-sharing program (a common one that I've seen free online) to create a wi-fi hotspot? Not trying to get anything related to this from t-mob directly. I just want a newer Android phone that is capable of this, if such a thing exists. I'm assuming that said phone would have an option for an unlimited data plan.

Hi I'm considering remote working from Patmos or another Greek Island for a month or so either in spring or late summer. I hear from Negroponte's initiative the island has free wifi -- what's coverage like? Does anyone else know of a sweet spot of affordable + great internet connectivity in Greece? Free isn't necessary; reasonable is. If so, recommendations for sites offering short term apartment rentals in your recommended area would be most awesome! Let's say, 4-6 weeks.

Can I use a third party wireless adapter for an XBOX360? I've long been frustrated by not having wireless on my xbox. I almost never want to be online with the thing, but when I do, I'd rather not drag a cable through the house. Now I've got a radio labs wireless adapter/antenna booster. I was just looking at the official 360 adapter, and am struck that they're probably very similar. Can I use my third part adapter, or is the 360 software so picky that it's not going to work? Thoughts? I'd rather not pay for this crap, Microsoft has enough of my filthy lucre already.

I live in Los Angeles and have Time Warner for my internet connection and Verizon for my cell service. If I buy a WiFi-capable netbook from Verizon, will it pick up the the signal from my wireless router I'm already using at home? If so, does this mean I don't have to pay any monthly charges for having the netbook?
I'm stumped by what on the face of it should be a pretty simple problem with a ADSL router (Thomson ST585 v6.) The connection is flawless when I plug into the router with an ethernet cable, but a wifi connection will drop out if I move further than a metre away from the router. This is true regardless of where I place the router in the house. I'm thinking a physical fault in the device. Anyone have a second guess?
