Re: N97 mini cant connect via open wifi

Try this go to settings>connectivity>destinations>then see if there's an option to add New access point. If not then find the place where the open Wifi name is displayed. Then touch it twice then you will see the settings for the access
point. Now, click on options
button at the bottom left of the screen and
select “Advanced Settings” from the list. This
will take you to the advanced settings. In Advanced Settings, you will now see four
settings, namely IPv4 settings, IPv6 settings,
Proxy Server Address and Proxy port
number. In IPv4 you have to enter the ip and subnet mask and default gateway. Then tap back then enter the proxy and port number. You have to set the WLAN mode as public security as open. Try and reply.
