    Hi All,

    So I just bought this Droid X and I'm really diggin' it. The wifi works great, I can see all my machines on my LAN and using "Media Share" I can browse the shared files on my Linux machines. However, when I try to hit the webpages that are hosted on my LAN I can't bring them up. Why doesn't it work? I also use "Chrome to Phone" and I can't send the locally hosted webpage to my phone either. :eek:

    I see that the phone is getting an IP address from my DHCP server that is on my network. Not sure how to proceed, is there a way to make the wifi connection the primary one over 3G?
