I would need help on this. I just bought a E63 yesterday and tried to connect to the WLAN at home. The scanning can detect my WLAN but after connecting and selecting the address that I want to go to, my phone shows, WLAN not found. I reckon it has something got to do with the connectivity. However the WLAN connection on my laptop is excellent as I was just sitting right in front of the router when I tried it out.
It seems like the reception on my phone is not quite good too as it cannot detect my WLAN when I'm not too far away.
Would really appreciate any help! TIA! (:

You need to configure your modem or router to establish wlan connection.
I don't know what type of wireless router you have. If you use password to authenticate and connect your laptop or PC to browse internet ,you may not able to browse through mobile as it is not suitable for entering password for authentication.
Configure your modem/router be in 'always on' mode to connect your phone to internet.
If your modem/router supports Mac address filtering enter the the Mac address of E63 into the modem/router. Mac address is found behind the phone's battery space as 'WLAN'.
I have used my phone on the university's protected network for two years without any problems.
This is the message I have been getting:
"Unable to connect"
"Wlan network not found"
I made a note of the settings that worked up until yesterday. It's strange that the phone does not work becuase I reset the phone using *#7370# and it did not help. It was still giving me the same problem.
Also, I tried to reinstall the firmware through Nokia Suite and it said error 12017. I tried to "repair" the installation but it did not work.
Nokia can really be frustrating to deal with sometimes.
Also the playlists don't transfer properly, only 3 out of 20 will transfer and Nokia Suite says that it could not transfer one of the playlists. It's strange, because in the software it says that all playlists are on the phone and then when I check them in the folder in the phone memory, they are all in the "sound clips" folder, but are not proberly displayed in the music player. Is there any other legit music player that can be used for Nokia E63?
Thanks for your help in advance!
