The whole day I tried to connect to Wi-Fi networks almost everywhere - unfortunately it seems only Telstra Hotspots are available on Starbucks, Queen Victoria Building and some othe places. I couldn't connect to the Telstra Hotspot with my Tablet PC running Windows Vista.
While my Pocket PC had no problems at all, Windows Vista never got a valid IP address, in 5 different hotspots I tried - including the airport.
So I tried Optus here, and it worked. So I can be led to believe Telstra has something really wrong on their network, and Windows Vista doesn't like it.
also I spent until midnight removing Microsoft Office 2007 Beta 2 from this Tablet PC and installed Microsoft Office 2003. And all that work going on, even though I had to be at the airport at 4am!
The reason I removed Microsoft Office 2007 Beta 2 is because I need Outlook working! Outlook 2007 (Beta 1 and Beta 2) could only connect to my Exchange Server from within my home network. Anywhere else (GPRS, CDMA, Wi-Fi providers) and it would simply stall and not connect.
I removed this beta, installed Outlook 2003 and guess what? It worked fine straight away. No problems at all.
This proves the problem is not on my Exchange Server, not on my firewall, but on this Outlook 2007. The bad thing is that I raised this as a bug twice and it was closed twice with no resolution.
