N8 internet connection

How do I stop my N8 from trying to connect to the net via my service provider rather than via wlan? I set it up once but my son played with my settings and I can't remember how to re-set it.

Thanks.

There could be a variety of possibilities that your N8 is trying to connect with the Internet.

One is that your widgets are in "online mode". To stop your widget to go online simply

goto to your mobile's homescreen.

On the home screen--> tap on "option" and then --> tap on "WIDGETS TO OFFLINE MODE".

Please check and see if this solves your problem, otherwise I will tell you more solutions.

Thanks for the replies. I'll ask my son who has now claimed my N8 as his own :-(  to try this and let you know the result.
