Re: Nokia Asha 303 Wifi Problem

Hi creativemind17,

 

Thank you for your post and welcome to the forums!

 

For an easy fix you could try to set your device to ask what connection to use. You can change the setting here: Menu > Settings > Connectivity > Net connection > Ask first / WLAN first. If you select "Ask first", your phone should prompt for the desired connection method when you start the browser (or any other application that requires internet access).

 

Also, if you prefer to use your WLAN connection most of the time, select the following: Menu > Settings > Connectivity > Packet data > Packet data connection > When needed

 

Let us know if this helps,

Re: Nokia Asha 303 Wifi Problem

Hi jrns, 

 

In that case, I advise you to do the following: go to Menu > Settings > Connectivity > WLAN > WLAN search > Off. 

The phone should now not connect to Wi-Fi automatically. 

 

Feel free to post any other questions you may have.

Re: Nokia Asha 303 Wifi Problem

@astra2025, i have problem in connecting Internet. i have done all the procedures in connecting it. but when i got into Internet, the green loading bar is always at its 1/3 percent to connect with websites like facebook, twitter and more, and it displays a "communication error" - check that you have coverage and try again.

Re: Nokia Asha 303 Wifi Problem

I faced the same problem.. But this is what I did.. AND ITS WORKING.....


Menu> Settings> configuration>Personal settings> add new..

Select My web.... And its working...

Keep all the other settings in other areas as wifi first and all.... But I did this after deleting my service provider settings... Somebody try it without removing the service provider settings.. It might work... Then u might be able to access both WI-fi and service provider according to availability... :-)

Re: Nokia Asha 303 Wifi Problem

I have the same problem. My phone is an Asha 302. It cannot connect to the internet using Wifi and instead uses GPRS.

I tried these solutions (the ones posted above):

 

"For an easy fix you could try to set your device to ask what connection to use. You can change the setting here: Menu > Settings > ConnectivityNet connection > Ask first / WLAN first. If you select "Ask first", your phone should prompt for the desired connection method when you start the browser (or any other application that requires internet access)."

 

"I faced the same problem.. But this is what I did.. AND ITS WORKING.....

Keep all the other settings in other areas as wifi first and all.... But I did this after deleting my service provider settings... Somebody try it without removing the service provider settings.. It might work... Then u might be able to access both WI-fi and service provider according to availability... :-)"

 

and it's still not working. I can access the internet when I'm using different applications like facebook and social. But I just can't access it when I'm using the Nokia Browser. The loading bar will load halfway and after that, it gets stuck there :smileysad: 

 

Weirdly though, my browser was working fine just last week.

 

PLEASE HELP :smileysad:

Re: Nokia Asha 303 Wifi Problem

Service provider is the network on which you are. From there you will get all the information about the configuration settings.

Re: Nokia Asha 303 Wifi Problem

Hi Ajiboy700,

 

Welcome to the Forum.

 

In order to solve this issue, I would advise you to perform a soft reset (no data will be cancelled).  Enter *#7780# on your keypad, default code "12345".
