N8 symbian belle wifi internet problem

[ Edited ]

I just updated my N8 from symbian anna to belle. Everything went ok. Now I'm trying to connect to my home wifi network which has WEB security. I can connect without a problem. I mean the phone says it's connected to the network. But when I try to access a website there is only the error page. And after a minute or so the wifi connection drops out by itself. I saved the network, and there's no other destination in the settings/destinations menu. the phone is not connecting to it by itself, like it was with Anna. does anybody have the same problem? Is there a way to go back to Anna? Thanks

Re: N8 symbian belle wifi internet problem

I also have the same problem, when trying to open any page it says: "Mobile data off, no connections available".

 

Works with 3G, but not wi-fi.

Re: N8 symbian belle wifi internet problem

A workaround for the problem is to manually set the ip addresses on your phone

(Menu>Settings>Connectivity>Settings>Network dest.>Access Point)

 

Then auto search for network and select wifi, then select your network and enter your key and select "Internet".

 

Then in Network Destinations select internet and then select the network you just added then the menu icon at the bottom right and select advanced settings, then go into IPv4 settings and manually set your ip address...

 

Keep in mind that to do this, you would have to have some basic knowledge on networking. You only need to do it once for each network.  Works for me, hopefully it does for all you as well

 

This is what I'll be doing until a proper fix komes out

Re: N8 symbian belle wifi internet problem

Hey Kiraa, how do you know your IP address? my gateway shows an inactive device and if I set that IP adress it still doesn't work.

Kan you access to a komputer that is konnected to the wifi?

 

If you do, then you kan go into the network settings and see what ip adresses the komputer is using to konnect to it.

 

And like I said, it would be best if you have a basic knowledge of networking in order to use that information and manually enter working ip adresses also without konflicting other konnected devices.

Re: N8 symbian belle wifi internet problem

Re: N8 symbian belle wifi internet problem

That is exactly what the problem is, Belle has a DHCP bug that doesn't allow it to receive settings from the network

Re: N8 symbian belle wifi internet problem

I'm using the WiFi with DHCP without any problems, but there is, however, a misery (bad design): the builtin browser and the builtin e-mail client cannot switch automatically to the available connections, or if more connections are available to be able to define a priority.

 

For the browser there is a workarond for me -- set the access point to "Ask when necessary", so it will prompt whenever you open the application. You have to know which one is turned ON (data or WiFi) and further which one is available in that area.

 

For the e-mail I have not found any workaround. I have to select the connection type in settings each time the access point changes, which is totally stupid (specially because I have four accounts). Given that usually e-mails are not that big, I leaved all accounts on GSM data and that's it (I have a limited data plan, but in terms of 500M, which is far enough).

Do this: Menu - Settings - Connectivity - WiFi - Options - Settings - Energy saving - OFF. That is the solution to the problem of WiFi with Nokia Belle

Re: N8 symbian belle wifi internet problem

Turning energy saving off worked for me, thank you!

But I hope they release a fix for this, as battery life is precious.

Re: N8 symbian belle wifi internet problem

I tried that but it didn't help. Phone cannot receive a single bit from wifi, even though it thinks it's connected.

Re: N8 symbian belle wifi internet problem

Are you sure the application's access point setting is set to the name of the (connected) wireless conection ? I know this is somewhat confusing, because the GSM data connection is called "Internet", whereas the WiFi connection should be displayed with the SSID instead.
