E55 wifi problem

I've had an E55 for a few weeks and am generally very pleased with it. My wifi connection to my home router is now

not working properly, although it was fine up to a few days ago. the E55 finds the network and connects to it, but it will not download

any data, either through the web browser or theseaparately installed internet radio application.i have two other wifi receivers which

are both working normally.

 

Any suggestions please?

Re: E55 wifi problem

With internet radio I get something like "station not available" or "connection timed out". With the web browser it's just a blank page.

In both cases I'm definitely connected to the WLAN - as evidenced by both indicators on the device and a light on my router.

 

Sorry about the extra line breaks, by the way - it's the only way I can see what I'm typing.

Re: E55 wifi problem

Turn off the power saving in the advanced settings of WLAN.

Thanks, but that didn't help.

Re: E55 wifi problem

Thinking further about this, the effect is that I can connect to the WLAN but not the internet.

 

I have just tried uninstalling the internet radio app. That didn't help either.

Re: E55 wifi problem

This could also be a router issue. Check WLAN settings or reset the router.

Re: E55 wifi problem

Restarting the router did the trick. Glad it was something simple. Thanks!

Re: E55 wifi problem

I've got the same problem and I'm not convinced that your router is the issue! I had connected in the same time, 2 laptops and my E55 to one Lynksys router and only my E55 showed this issue.

I think E55 fails to renew it's session to Wi-Fi router ... Specially when you become active again, after some silence time(idle). Restarting your router just force the E55 to start a new fresh session.

Re: E55 wifi problem

Internet Connection Sharing might be a solution. It's quite easy on a W 7 PC.

Re: E55 wifi problem

Your PC or laptop needs a cable connection to the internet accesspoint and you need to enable WiFi on the PC and phone and allow other networks to connect to internet.

Re: E55 wifi problem

Looking at the picture I see that you didn't enable the wireless Atheros adapter. Maybe Connectify can help you out. Works great for me.

@vjjoshy:
If Nokia phone says "invalid server name" this means, it did not receive the IP of a working DNS-server via DHCP.

Re: E55 wifi problem

It means that the url can't be translated to an IP address by the DNS server.
