Is there a know problem with the emulator and SDK, where the Wireless networks cannot be added.
 
Every time I try to do this - just get an "Error" and button fails to do anything on CIUS
 
I made sure its not in "plane mode" - disabled wireless.....but problem still persists...is this a limitation of emualator/CIUS SDK or bug ?

There is no need to enable wireless on Cius/android emulators. They use the host machine's network configuration.
 
Hence you can just open a browser and browse away.

Opening any browser on the CIUS skin simply reports - unable to connect, not available and suggest check network connection.
 
Hence why I then looked at wireless network it wwas showing an error.
 
Would CSA prevent the emualtor from accessing netwokt connections ?

Try pressing F8 after the emulator starts. According to Android documentation, that "Toggles cell networking on/off"

One thing to test would be to open emulator with a default android skin, which would prove that this is not skin related issue.

Just tried a default Android and the web browser conenction works fine
 
So yes looks specific to the Cisco CIUS Skin only :-(

I've always just created a new AVD with the Cius skin, started it, and been able to click on the browser button and it just works.  A few questions:
 
- Are you using the officlal skin from here: http://developer.cisco.com/web/cius/docs
- Have you tried deleting the problem AVD and creating a new empty AVD with the Cius skin?
- Are you specifying an emulated SD card?  If not, please try this
- Can you try disabling CSA or firewall briefly to see if there is a restriction?

My team uses the Cius SDK all the time so this is a rather strange problem.  Any chance you could send us the logs from logcat?
 
I usually run logcat from the command line.  I have had some problems getting adb to see the emulator.  So I usually do the following:
First I make sure the emulator shows up to adb
adb devices
 
if the emulator doesn show up, I run
adb start-server
adb kill-server
adb devices

 
Then i run
adb logcat
 
If you can send the log messags that shows the failure, I'll happily look at it.  You can post it here, or send it to me directly at lmichale@cisco.com
 
In the mean time I'm going to delete my copy of the SDK, redownload it from this site and make sure it still works.

Tried to follow the suggestions - thank you - but alss no success yet.
 
(1) CSA is set to off
(2) Created a new AVD afresh - no difference
(3) Yes emualting SD card -12M and tried 16M as well - no difference
(4) Yes downloaded CIUS skin from official web site
 
Android debug bridge tool results

s>adb devices

And it just sits there -no info shown - even if i try to use the browser and it fails to load web page.
 
Is there anything else I can try ?

Both those messages mean that it doesn't see the device from adb, and it should. try restarting the emulator, and /or restarting adb with "adb kill-server".

After  a brief Webex session - the magic answer from Larry wsa found.
 
Click the "Wipe User data" on start up of my CIUS skin. This ensured no historic or saved CSA "No's" were removed.
 
Network access now works fine -thanks Larry.

When installing apps like Cisco Mobile 8.5, they expect a wireless network to be present and will not start without one.
 
Is there a way of "spoofing" the Cius to have a wireless connection at a software level so these apps can work?
 
Thanks,
Bob

There is no WiFi driver for the Android Emulator.  I also suspect Cisco Mobie wasn't targeted for the emulator.
