Applications not recognizing wifi
I have now tried two applications - Ustream and DinnerSpinner - that upon startup tell me I need a wifi connection in order to use them and then immediately quit.
The problem is, I *have* and active wifi connection, and Safari, Mail and all of my other apps have no problem using it.
I see a few other comments in the review section for both of these apps indicating that some users are having the same problem, but it's clearly not universal.
This is a JB'ed iPhone 3G with FW 2.2. Anyone have any ideas?

I had couple Apps in the past did that. One of them was fixed by rebooting the iPhone (not respring, but full reboot). The other App, it turned out to be a bug that was corrected in a newer version.
I agree with Bad Ash, it's not an issue with the iPhone.
I figured out the problem: the jailbreak application PdaNet. For anyone else out there that might encounter this problem in the future:
It turned out that I had PdaNet installed and configured in WiFi router mode (which I think is the installation default). I went into PdaNet settings, selected the "PdaNet off" option, and now all of the previously failing apps (DinnerSpinner, UStream, and Bank of America) are working fine.
I still think those apps are slightly broken, since Safari, Mail, Facebook and others worked with PdaNet turned on. But at least it makes some sense now.
