ASLiTh,

 

The issue could be due to the security setting in the router. You may need to change the WEP or WPA key.

 

Hope this helps!

@sonik352 -

 

1) Please check your WiFI router, there will be WEP key which needs to be entered in the C6-00 for it to get connected to WLAN. Without this, it would not connect.

2) There are active content in the home screen like facebook which keeps logging to your account to keep the content updated. Hence, your phone will keep activating the GPRS connection. The solution to this is - in the home screen, click Options > Make content offline

 

Also, ensure that your phone is updated with the latest software ver 20.0.042. You can check version by dialling *#0000# in your phone dial pad.

 

Hope this helps!

Re: C6 WLAN Connection problem..help me!

The problem I am having with my Nokia C6 is - I see the WiFi network, I enter the WEP key, it is accepted, then nothing. A blank screen with a "Please Wait" message. Loading, loading, loading, nothing. Then an connection error.

 

Most of the time I cannot connect to ANY WiFi network. My laptop connects all the time to the same networks.My colleagues can connect on their smartphones.

 

I have the latest firmware on the phone.

 

Ergo - Nokia C6 is **bleep**?

Re: C6 WLAN Connection problem..help me!

Define access point manually into Settings / Connectivity / Destinations / Internet / Options / New access point / ... Verify new AP is first on the priority list. (If possible try to disable security options on wlan router and disable also power saving during first tests).

Disabling power saving from phone's advanced wlan settings might help with certain routers: Menu / Settings / Connectivity / WLAN / Options / Settings / Options / Advanced settings / Automatic configuration / Disabled / Power saving / Disabled

Re: C6 WLAN Connection problem..help me!

Open Menu / Settings / Connectivity / Destinations / Internet / <AP name> / WLAN security mode / <mode>

and from "WLAN security settings" you can define security keys.

 

Add new Access point by going to Menu / Settings / Connectivity / Destinations / Access point

Re: C6 WLAN Connection problem..help me!

Tried as per your guidelines. But not working. Phone does not connecting to WLAN. It detects, asks for pre share key. Then nothing. It also does not connect to USB. A day before I had updated its software version from OVI suite.

 

Soft Ver: 40.0.021

date: 17-05-11

Model: c6-00

Type: RM-612

 

One more noticeable change. In Music, there is addition of  "Podcast". Now whenever I open music, phone starts seach for "New music & Podcasts". Searching does not stop until phone switch off.
