Re: Invalid Server Name - WIFI problem on nokia XpressMusic 5800

This is very very annoying and expensive for me. Nokia I got this phone because of Wi-Fi. Where is the solution to this issue?

nothing works to correct the "invalid Server Name" error,  and I have tried everything i can think of, and all suggestions on this thread. This is unacceptable. I can't even connect using the Ovi application, I get the same error.

Re: Invalid Server Name - WIFI problem on nokia XpressMusic 5800

Hi,

 

I am using v50 and facing the same "Invalid Server Name" issue.

 

I have tried all the solutions given in this post but none of them works for me ....

 

I think Nokia should provide solution for this or please let me a way by with I can revert back to the previous version of firmware.

 

Thanks

Re: Invalid Server Name - WIFI problem on nokia XpressMusic 5800

hi,

 

please remember that there are routers that aren't configured using DHCP which means that you are the one to provide your own IP ADDRESS and DNS SERVER which should be given by your network administrator, however if this is not the case, all you have to do is to delete all your saved access points and add a new one, if you are not sure on the WLAN Settings just put in Open Network that's the basic configuration.

 

to setup:

 

go to Settings > Connectivity > Destination > Access Point. click options and add new access point. after adding the new access point click on it, press edit, click options then advance configuration press ipv4 you should put there your own IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and your DNS Server.

 

then your done. if you still have any problems with your wifi then i beleived that it already has something to do with the router configuration itself. :smileywink:

Re: Invalid Server Name - WIFI problem on nokia XpressMusic 5800

Just put Open DNS values

it will solve the problem

 

Go to Setting > Destination > Intrenet > wireless access point name > edit  > advanced setting > DNS server > Change from Automatic to these settings

Primary DNS Server 208.67.222.222 Secondary DNS Server 208.67.220.220

 

There you go ,you can use your home wifi

Nope, the DNS trick also didn't work. And the router can't possibly be the problem all of a sudden, as the only thing that has changed is the firmware.

 

C'mon you Nokia guys, I know you're reading this, and you know you need to come up with a real fix. No more workarounds please. Otherwise people will turn to phones that do work, and actually work better after a software update.

 

It's time for Nokia to show its best side and give real solutions and care to its customers.

Re: Invalid Server Name - WIFI problem on nokia XpressMusic 5800

This is a users forum, so don't expect Nokia guys here. It's advised to reset the device after a firmware update. Dial *#7370# 12345 reformat, you'll lose all data. Make a backup first and restore without the settings.

Re: Invalid Server Name - WIFI problem on nokia XpressMusic 5800

Just posted this on another thread...

 

It worked for me.  Worth a try for you...

 

I tried to connect to my wifi for 2 days straight until I found the solve on another site.

 

I deleted all the wifi connections and went into my router and turned off the qos function.  (I'm a complete computer dummy but I managed to do it", left all my wifi settings on the N8 blank and set to automatic and it automatically connected straight up.  Has been working for the last week no probs.

 

Go into your computer DOS.

 

1:smileyfrustrated:tart
2:Run
3:telnet 192.168.1.254 (or whatever your router address is)  I have a Thomson router.

 

Enter.

 

User:Administrator
Password:depends on your software, try without password, if it dosn’t connect, use modem access code under your router 

 

:wireless qos config mode=disabled

 

enter

 

:saveall

 

enter

 

Reboot your router and try to connect.

 

It worked for me....

Re: Invalid Server Name - WIFI problem on nokia XpressMusic 5800

I have the same problem .

I actually tried to connect to a public wifi it said "INVALID SERVER NAME"

but, I tried to connect to some it worked perfectly fine.

I don't know why??It happens

my neighborhood  uses WIFI and I tried to connect to it,

it worked perfect.

I don't know what was their modem,

but I do know is that they didn't use any security for their wifi.

so why don't you guys reset your modem and try it without any security.

THANKS YOU

let me know if there is any problem.

Leaving your router unprotected is not really a good idea.

Re: Invalid Server Name - WIFI problem on nokia XpressMusic 5800

Hi
I had a similar problem with my N5800 XM.
I fixed it today by removing all manually configured DNS details.
I set it back to AUTOMATIC, and when I tried again, I got my default wap.google.com homepage.

Cheers.
Tony

Re: Invalid Server Name - WIFI problem on nokia XpressMusic 5800

If you want to connect to public networks such as WIFI hotspots, you should really set settings such as IP address, DNS, Gateway, etc...  to be configured/obtained automatically instead of having them in static mode...
