N97 is not automatically connect to my wifi network

Hi

 

I have a Nokia N97, which having a mobile Internet connection, which I only want to use when I'm not near my different wifi network.

 

But it does not connect automatically, and it always selects my mobile connection, why?

you need to set priority points and tell your phone what you want it to do and how

 

settings - connectivity - desitnations- click on the connction and select organize - change priority

once you have it set with priority points it will select one with priority one and move down. i have no issues in my house for my n97 to select wifi before any other connection due to how i have priority set up. once you get this done it should detect it right away once you enter your wifi zone

Thanks - I try straight. Something completely different, I use Mail for Exchange version 2.9, but does not appear it can read HTML mail. Something you know nothing about.

you need to set priority points and tell your phone what you want it to do and how

 

settings - connectivity - desitnations- click on the connction and select organize - change priority 

 

That doesn't actually work. The phone changes the order of connections according to which one most recently worked.

 

I've had the latest (Belle) Nokias for a year or two and have never found a way to force only-wifi or only-3G etc - other than with apps specifically written to prompt you for the currently available options as e.g. Opera Mobile or Profimail do.

On my Belle 808, N8, C7 and E7 this works perfectly and exactly as described above. My 808 has not changed its priority settings in 9 months despite being in daily use and having travelled with me to over a dozen different countries. My N8 has not changed the priority settings either in over two years, so you are wrong.

 

The built-in browser for example can also be set up to prompt for available connectivity options, if the respective setting under Access Point is selected.

 

It is quite easy to force only WiFi or only 3G - in more than one way. Either delete all WiFi or 3G access points from the connectivity settings or manually disable the respective connection type from the drop-down menu on the home screen.

 


The last is just a signature, except this one is not the standard begging for kudos.
