1.Select Menu >Settings>Connectivity>Wi-Fi
 
2.Select the network you want.
 
3.If the connection is secured, type in the password
 
Good luck

jen86my Nokia 210 Dual SIM works like a charm via Wi-Fi. Because it is related to Wi-Fi access, which network operator provided your SIM1?

Re: nokia asha 210 wifi connection problem

Hi

 

What is the error message? Are you able to establish Wi-Fi connection successfully? What type of network are you trying to connect? Is it secured or open network? While trying to connect does it show message on the screen says "Can’t start a secure connection. Check coverage and security and date settings in your phone. (005)?

In the above case please try to use your phone with a SIM card having data package to connect to internet for the first time and then try searching and connect to Wi-Fi. Now you will be able to browse using Wi-Fi. Disable the Data connection now and use only Wi-Fi

 

Please confirm it works?

Dear, i tried that too but still no retults.

The problem is not with one router. It is not showing any wifi network list at all.

Is there any solution to this problem?

Who stated that? For me, your case sounds more like a hardware issue with your unit. The last resort is to bring your Nokia 210 to a local but official Nokia Care Centre and let them refurbish the software/firmware. Did that help?

The operating system of your phone (Nokia Series 40) does not support WPA-Enterprise (EAP) which is used in your school. Although the Nokia 210 is the first Series 40 to support EAP-SIM (with SIM1, below your battery), your school uses another EAP type. You cannot do anything about that except to go for another phone with another operating system like Windows Phone, Android, Symbian, BlackBerry, or iOS.

Re: nokia asha 210 wifi connection problem

yes abhi99 said it correctly the hotspot you are trying to connect should have 802.11 b/g enabled.but its not enabled. And the router which your device is connecting is is 802.11b/g/n mixed that router can connect to any device.

Re: nokia asha 210 wifi connection problem

cutej007, not sure why you are about the Wi-Fi bands. A Nokia 210 supports IEEE 802.11g and is backward compatible to IEEE 802.11b.

Is that the error message, in English, word-for-word? Please, tell us the name of your Wi-Fi access-point (brand and model).
