A note on Kindle connectivity

The Kindle often complains that it cannot connect to a WiFi network, but what this really means is that it cannot connect to amazon.com. Unfortunately this blocks the browser even if local connectivity is available. In fact, you can look at the 711 page to see if it has acquired an address, and if so, you can ssh into the kindle even when the [Wi-Fi] icon is off.

To make the system believe that the network is reachable (and let the browser work), you can issue the following command:

PHP Code:
dbus-send --system /default com.lab126.wifid.cmConnected 
and you will see the [Wi-Fi] icon turn on.

Unfortunately you need to do it every minute or so, because the daemon in charge of connectivity (wifid or probably the 3G equivalent as well) periodically tries to refresh the address and connect to amazon, and on failure it issues a

PHP Code:
dbus-send --system /default com.lab126.wifid.cmNotconnected 
event which blocks the browser again.

Sorry, but the command above doesn't work on my kindle 3 with 3.1 firmware. I tried to use it to make the browser believe that the network is reachable (the kindle is actually connected using terminal istructions and ping google.it from the terminal works...). Any suggestions??
Thanks in advance
