Nokia 5800 and Wifi Problem

Hey guys,

I am trying to connect to my wifi by entering the WEP key but the problem is that when i try to enter my WEP key for the WLAN there is no option of inputting numbers, i hit the abc button on top and it turns off the letters and goes to Abc in the right corner and then still only gives me letters (it also turns off the letters on the phone pad).

Is anybody experiencing the same problems or am i just an idiot who doesn't know how to work the phone yet lol.

HELP!!!

It worked!!! Thanks so much!

Question about wifi though, when you are connected to wifi when you go to internet does your browser automatically use the wifi connection?

Thanks!

You can also bring up the full screen keyboard or the mini qwerty keyboard and hit the 1* button to enter numbers.

Re: Nokia 5800 and Wifi Problem

Hi, does anyone know how to read MAC and IP address of the WLAN for 5800?

Some AP has the MAC filtering function and need to know MAC address

Thanks

Re: Nokia 5800 and Wifi Problem

Hey Guys,

I recently bought a Nokia 5800 express music. I'm trying to connect the device to WLAN network at my office. when I search the WLAN network, it shows two networks. 1) IME -Global_WLAN and 2) ITH-NET. Both the network looks to be protected Wi-Fi Networks. If I select the first network, it asks for a WEP key for WLAN. If the second networks is being selected, it displays WLAN: Unable to connect. WPA authentication failed.

My Question is where do I get this WEP key? Should I contact the service provider ( I use Airtel. I'm from India)?

Do let me know?

Thanks in advance,
Vinu

First find a router that you have control over like a DLINK or something like that. Next configure your 5800 to connect to the router and check it's assigned IP address from the router. Leave it connected (do not close the browser yet)

Now, open a command window on your Windows PC and ping the IP address. After that 'arp -a' will show you the MAC address.

Hi,

 

Try Menu Key -> Settings -> Destinations -> Internet -> (Tap Access Point Name) -> Options -> Edit -> Options -> Advanced Settings.

 

You should see two boxes for Proxy Server address and Port.

My Nokia 5800 doesn't find wireless networks. It starts searching for network but nothing happens and it continues searching without any message.

Re: Nokia 5800 and Wifi Problem

I've also had problems with "No Gateway Reply".  It is an issue that Nokia are aware of. I spoke to Nokia Support recently, because I could connect to a WLAN at work, but not at home - both have WPA/PSK encryption.

 

See my post about the problem in this thread.

 

Now let's all urge Nokia to fix these issues with connecting to some routers.  They sold us a phone which advertised WLAN, but it doesn't work with all makes of router...

 

Not very happy at the moment.  Get your act together Nokia!

No Gateway Reply for the 5800.FIX

 After spending days trying to sort this problem i think I have cracked it. 1. follow the instructions someone posted to enter the phone ip address, should be different to computers ip. then enter subnet same as pc then the gateway ip same as pc. the only real difference with my solution is that you have to enter the dns addresses as well, same as pc . 

 

I am using XP open network connection, select the wireless network, on the left select view statusof this connection, tab will open, select support , then click details and youdns server numbers are displayed.  Enter these in phone setting in.

 

I am using linksys WRT54GS, I dont have this problem with a netgear router at my friends, that connects streight away, without internal config of phone.

 

was on phone to nokia for 2 hours being passed from one depart. to another. didnt get anywhere.
