    URI (University of Rhode island) uses 802.11a/b/g.
    meaning it requires a student to enter his or her URI account username and password to access internet..
    now when i do that on the laptop, it works just fine..i can practically go anywhere..
    BUT when i try it on my ipodtouch, i can log in..but i am limited on the sites i can go.. and i want to know why..i tried searching the university website and all i could find was this site:
    http://podcast.uri.edu/help/index.php/Wireless

    now it says that the network blocks some ports for phone internet and all..
    and i want to know if there is anyway around this?

    i work at a small college and I needed to register my iPod Touch with the IT folks .. i needed to give them the wifi address (settings, general, about).
