Nokia e7 Belle using as a modem with MAC OS

Good Morning, I need a suggest.

I have a Nokia e7 updated to Belle, and I use a Macbook Pro with OS 10.6.8.

i want to use my E7 like a modem linkin to the MAC with USB (or is it possible by bluetooth?).

 

i try but it doesn't work.

Hi tomasoni,

 

Thanks for posting and welcome to the forums!

 

To use the E7-00 as a modem with a USB cable would require the use of Nokia Suite which is not available for OS X.

 

An alternative would be to install Joikuspot which will allow your E7-00 to work as a Wi-Fi HotSpot and in this way connect your Macbook Pro to the internet. Joikuspot requires exclusive access to the phones Wi-Fi subsystem so disconnect your Wi-Fi if connected to a router before starting Joikuspot.

 

Also if you are running Nokia Belle make sure Wi-Fi is switched on from the notification dropdown bar. Drag the notification bar down and the Wi-Fi indicator should be lit (select it if not).

 

Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.

Kosh

Make sure you don't have any DNS settings setup on your mac.

Can you see the hotspot but not connect to it?

Ah, so it's an issue with the joikuspot application on your phone.

Do you have another app on your phone which may be taking the wifi... I.e. an email sync profile? If so, please disable the email sync and try restarting the JoikuSpot Free app.

Kosh, I've tried but there is some problem.

 

I don't understand:

joikuspot runs.

Mac Airport sees my E7 and links to joikuspot

I open Firefox, try a website, it begins to link to it but it does not open the website

until firefox says: too much time...

Check in Frefox and your MAC's internet options that there is no DNS/Proxy setup (as mentioned previously) and Internet is set to "Automatically Detect"
