You can be using media from the Wi-Drive while looking up something on the Net."
I have just bought such a Wi-Drive and I'm testing it right now. Access to the internet doesn't work at my office
(there's a HTTP proxy
, and it seems it's impossible to set up the proxy from the device settings page, or on my Nexus S android phone altogether). So I have to choose : wifi access to the Wi-drive, OR wifi access through proxy to the internet.
The Wi-drive application for android devices is still in beta though (I'm glad it works on the Nexus S, as it targeted android tablets). I don't know if there's a proxy support in the iOS app.
edit : if you have a better experience with a proxy, please give us some details
