I have a new nokia N79 and I am trying to connect it to my laptop using WIFI. My laptop has an internet connection and I want to use it from my phone. I created a adhoc network on my laptop. The network is getting detected on my phone. But when I try to browse, my phone either restarts or freezes. I have tried with the "access point" settings on the phone and also tried with the modified settings (IP etc.). The problem persists. :-(
Please suggest me both (laptop and phone) settings. Hope there is nothing wrong with my phone.
(I am using Windows Vista Home Premium on the laptop)
I also experienced it. First,
In your laptop internet connection, view status>properties>Sharing tab>Check on Allow internet connection sharing "Home Connection: Wireless conection".
connect your laptop from ur phone and use internet!
Sometimes, "No gateway reply" message will be shown. Try it until convenient!
But, another way is you need ur's friend laptop. If u get another laptop,
(1) connect ur laptop from ur friend's laptop. And test for internet usage in ur friend's laptop.
(2)If ok, you can also connect that internet from ur N79 phone. This is the way of induction.
It is connected to the internet. But how?
The question remains the same. Is your laptop an accesspoint? Do you have another wireless accesspoint in your house? Use that, if you can.
IF your laptop is an accesspoint then it broadcasts a service set identifier (SSID). If you turn on your phone's WLAN it should see this SSID if you did'nt set it as a hidden nertwork. On your phone you set the connection modus to INFRASTRUCTURE. If you need a WPA/WEP password you set it in the phone as it is on your accesspoint. If you use a stick for 3G, there is no WLAN.
I ll tell what I have done so far... My laptop is connected to the internet. I created an Adhoc network on my laptop and then turn on internet connection sharing. My laptop is using DHCP for both, internet connection and for WIFI. I connected my phone to the Adhoc network (its a secure network). I am using DHCP on the phone as well. I am able to connect to my laptop using WIFI now. But I cant use internet from my phone (I am not using 3G/Internet connection is shared from my laptop).
Now please tell me what settings need to be made for using internet from my phone. (The earlier post has solved my phone restart problem)

The phonesettings that work for me are: Connectionname>xxxxxxx Carrier> WirelessLAN Networkname>xxxxxxx Status>open Modus>Ad-hoc Security>WEP Securitysettings>WEPkey in use>#1 Verification>open.
The setup in Windows 7 went very smooth but in Vista I had to adjust some settings.
In the wireless adapter settings of your PC you have to set IPv4 to static and give it an IP whitch is in range of what your accesspoint prescribes like 192.168.0.100 to 192.168.0.200.
For simple internet connection sharing you dont need ports.
To watch your files you need a program called SymNas. With SymNas you can open your filebrowser on your lap to watch and transfer files from your phone.
Yesterday I bought N79. When I tried to connect to WLAN, I experienced the same problem. Mobile either reboots or switched off. How to rectify. Please tell me step by step procedure.
My Nokia model : N79
