Switching between access points

Does anyone know how to switch access points? I have a default access point that's set up for my Cingular provider and another one for my home wireless LAN.

Problem is that when I access the internet it defaults to my provider's access point and doesn't let me choose another one. I'd like to be able to switch this when I'm home, so that I can use my wireless network for internet access.

Thanks.

If you are talking about the Web browser, open it, then go to settings, then Access Point, then instead of User defined choose Always Ask. It should solve your problem

Thanks, that seemed to work but another problem surfaced. When selecting the home WLAN for the Web, I get an error of "Web: no gateway reply!". This comes right after typing in the pre-shared key, which I know matches my router settings. Network is set up with WPA2 security.

I don't know if phone supports wpa2, you will probably have to change to WEP, give it a try and see what happens.
