I bought my C3 in Porta (Ecuador Operator) and I have the exact same problem! Came here to report that this issue is spreading throughout the whole world.
Nokia MUST FIX THIS! This is just... dissapointing
My problem is with the Hungarian 03.36 Vodafone, that the e-mail program is not working with all the wlan routers. My home router is Asus WL-520GC and with it I get communication error, but with a Linksys router everything is good. How can it be?
(i set my gmail with linksys, and with my asus I get the @ icon (so it communicates), but I cannot read it because of that comminication error)
my phone gives me options either to connect with wifi or gprs...
but everytime i choose wifi when using the internet, it wont work...
it keeps on loading and displays communication error.. never worked..
if im using gprs, the internet works..
can anyone help me for a solution?
this is hopeless...
First of all, thanks charlie222 for the idea. I've managed to make this c3 of mine ask for the wlan option instead of the gprs before connecting. And the internet works. However, I can't use yahoo messenger now. It asks me to check my connectivity.
I swear... a lot of problems with this phone. I have it for about two weeks, from Uk, PAYG from O2 and didn't imagine I'd have so many problems.
So... that yahoo thing issue. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
Have a nice day!

Hi. I have tried Charlie 222 suggestion on my Nokia C3 vodafone and now asks me everytime how I want to connect. So Thank you for that. I can go online through my wi-fi in all applications appart from web internet. If I browse with opera mini is ok, mail is ok, communities chat etc its fine. But not internet. When I try to connect asks me how I want to connect, which is something that didn't do before, but when I do choose wi-fi, I always get vodafone asking me to login with my user name and password, which I don't even have.
I have just unlocked my phone to see if that would sort out the bit missing, (Web Internet), I Inserted my other sim card from orange but I get the same message from vodafone, user name and password. Please can you help? Can anyone help? Do you have any idea why this is still happening? Thanks
Hi I am using C3 and having problem wilth wlan.
i have tried the settings which was referred by charlie but its not working for me every time i connect to the internet using wlan it shows service not available. the setting which i had applied earlier was
Menu - settings - connectivity - WLAN - available wlans - then click edit on the WLAN you want to use. Look under 'Access point MAC',
Menu - Internet - Web Settings - Configuration Settings, then select configuration and change to Personal configuaration
I am using TERACOM WIFI router at home for internet model T2 B Gawv1.4Y10Y BI.
It doesn't work for me...
even with all the workarounds mentioned in this forum, it still doesn't work. I even updated to version 4.60 (most recent - dated 31-08-2010), my phone is unlocked and the problem continues!
It is also very clear that this happens only when trying to "browse" the internet. If I do "Menu>Internet>Nokia.mobile", then it asks for which connection, I select Wifi and it works properly. If I use the OVI store, it works properly... email? works properly! Opening the Opera mini browser (regardless of version!) to browse the internet? doesn't work! It does ask me which connection, I select Wifi and still, same frustrating message: "Failed to connect to the Internet"!!
Can Nokia officially tell us what's going on? Or at least can they tell us they are actively checking this?
Thanks...it worked, been trying to get on Wifi for 2 days now..was really losing my patience with the phone, I also switched my modem off & re started it again after inputting these codes into my phone and it worked..just need to get it to use wifi now instead of gprs when I input a web address..Hoorah..!!!
I'm In The UK & I Bought The C3 From Vodafone & I Seem To Be Having The Same Problem With The Wlan & Also I See Theres An Update For The C3 But I Tried Updating Via Pc And The Updater Is Telling Me That Theres No Software Update For My C3, I Went On The Nokia Website Where It Says Theres An Update For The C3 & Entered My Product Code To See If It Says Theres An Update But Surprisingly It Said Also There Is No Up Date For My Product. Now Am Puzzled Looking At The Screen Were It Says There Is An Update For The C3 But Yet Am Bein Told Otherwise By The Updater & The Website.

Hi, I just got this phone yesterday and have used the configuration settings given in this post which has worked great for getting mail and internet to ask how to connect, many MANY thanks for that!
However, chat (yahoo) still uses the gprs connection! Sometimes (!) it asks how I want it to connect but even when I select wlan I'll notice the 'G' come up on screen while it is connected (sneaky ). Any ideas how I can connect to chat on wifi without it activating the gprs? Thanks.
Oh, and has anyone else noticed that after you change the config settings the preloaded bookmarks (such as googlemail, twitter, facebook, etc.) won't load - they all go to vodafone live instead. Weird!
I was facing the same problem. But I solved it by switching access point from 1 to 2.
Settings> connectivity> Packet Data> Packet Data Settings > active access point
Choose 2 or 3 or 4 etc.
i have same problem my cell phone get wlan signal with my device but when i try to conect with it it gives mein WLAN connection fialed every time i m using net gear router and my whole network is on IP with my destop pc, laptop and my printer
