Ho do I do with Windows Mobile 5 using Netfront? (not Opera!)

it should not be required that you turn on proxy
it should just help you get pages faster if body else on the network already been there it's a cache really
hhhmm ok i may be a jerk but i'm a jedi jerk like my father was before me
BTW "I can't use a skeleton arm with that"

Thank you for your reply!

On their help page they say:
"Due to massive abuse of our connection to the internet from the WLAN we have to enforce the use of a proxyserver for connections to the internet"
and (translated by me):
"...we must enforce the use of the cacheserver. Accessment to the internet is only possible with the cacheserver."

Doesn't that mean that I must use the cacheserver and the proxyconfiguration? Because, by now I can connect to the WLAN (so WEP-key and all the heck are correct), I get an IP, but I can't load any page nor receive my mails. With my WLAN at home that's all possible.
