While your frustration is understandable and justified, I can assure you that "the grass is not necessarily greener on the other side". You will see posts like yours just as frequently with the competitors. This is a slightly subjective view, but in general, it is true.
But I understand the anger.
I can't connect to the internet from my wifi and data connection.
when i try to connect, show an error- Connection failed and Acces Denied.
This probelon occure when i update my n8 to Nokia belle.
please help me.
Same/similar problem here with a C7 after upgrade to Belle, there was no problem previously.
I had this problem.
I removed unnecessary software to fix it. What caused by problem was kaspersky. Once I removed kaspersky and installed F-Secure my wifi and internet connections problems disappeared (and my phone was more stable).
I have had similar problems and so far have only found a work-around but thought I would share in case it helps you. Under all 3 Symbian versions, my N8 has always had the issue of saying that I am connected to WiFi but I could not get anything, like the web, to work. Usually, I just disconnect & recconnect & it fixes the problem. Once in a while, that will not work & I have to connect to some othe random WiFi (even if I do not know the password), disconnect & then reconnect to the right one & it does the trick. Mildly annoying but worth it since I do have to pay a data plan.
With Belle, this still occassionally happens when I am at school/work (as always) but at home, it happens a lot - more frequent than before.
As for your WiFi disconnecting itself - I discovered that my N8 did that as well when I had no app/widgets going that needs the net. I guess it is some kind of power saving function but as soon as I set up my email/social, it stays connected.
Hope this helps & good luck!!
Thanks my symptoms is very similar to yours.. It started after belle update.. I had no access to 3G or wifi. Message was "Connection failed access denied". I then did a hard reset and the problem was still there with an new message "Connection failed, Connection unavailable". I tried other solutions to no avail. I then tried your method by setting the IP address for the Wifi manually and then rebooting the phone after which it connected. This is not an ideal solution though as it would mean you would need to know the IP details of other connected wifi devices for every wifi u cannot connect to..
Its okay for my home wifi though.. Nokia had better fix this mess very soon... A phone without internet is useless
Same here, after update to Belle goodbye to any connection 3g or WiFi... help!!!! What am I goingo to do with this useful cel phone. Internet is needed not optional.
I began getting the "connection failed wi-fi network not found" message on my home network with the Anna upgrade. I tried all the fixes suggested then and none of them worked. I gave up and did without functionality and waited for Belle, which I thought would surely fix the problem, because Anna had affected numerous users who reported variations of the wi-fi problem.
I can connect to my neighbor's network so it seems to be a DHCP issue with some routers as has been said before, I don't know why Nokia has been clueless about this for months.
Go to Settings>Connectivity>Settings>NetworkDestination>
Now you can browse even with mobile data turned off Via your wifi I only realised N8 wasn`t using wifi when I got a message saying i`m near to my 500mb limit.
Also, when updating make sure you DO NOT TOUCH the phone. Follow prompts on computer.
Now my N8 is a SAT NAV, Portable media player and 12m PIXEL camera
